Nitkin Gadhari is an IDIOT

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dipak Dholakia Feb 12, 2010. 6 Replies

I am neither Indian nor Hindu, so I may be out-of-line to say this; but by suggesting that Narenda Modi is comparable to Gandhi he has declared himself an IDIOT.

Gandhi's humility led him to believe, "I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills." Yes, truth and nonviolence are as old as the hills; but organized…Continue

Panchayati Raj

Posted on February 4, 2010 at 12:04am 0 Comments

I have attached today's press release from the Ministry of Panchayati Raj. What do Gandhitopia members think of this? Will Panchayati Raj result in realization of Gandhi's dream of economic and political village empowerment?





The Ministry of Panchayati Raj has issued specific guidelines to make Gram Sabha as a vibrant forum for promoting planned economic and social development of the villages in a transparent way. The guidelines are a part of the proceedings to observe the year… Continue

Binary economics

Posted on January 29, 2010 at 7:19am 7 Comments

In my previous blog "The Wealth of Families" I tried to use capitalism to support the notion of charitable family trusts. That was a misguided adventure. Many thanks to Dipak Dholakia for making several excellent points regarding that blog. Adam Smith wrote "The Wealth of Nations" long ago. In todays world, Adam Smith offers nothing for either nations or families. In America, all colleges and universities still teach sudents that there are only two kinds of economic systems: the "free"… Continue

The Wealth of Families

Posted on January 25, 2010 at 7:55am 0 Comments

It is generally agreed that the writing of Adam Smith (The Wealth of Nations) serves as the rational and moral basis for capitalism. Let us suppose that another writing came along - "The Wealth of Families." Suppose further that this new writing was not actually new, but that it was simply a plagiarism of Smith's work with the term "nation" replaced by the term "family", wherever it appeared in the text. Accepting that every nation had limited amounts of people, water, arable land, mineral… Continue

Thanks for your valuable comments. There are very few examples like the one that you have told about the sppining wheel that produced 12V battery that gives light for few hours, if you spin for two hours. Unfortunately it could not work. The main problem is human being-s greedy nature for more and more. That is what the reason is of constantely increasing social violence in the global society today. Th idea of voluntary poverty is to inculcate the new culture of Aprigraha, we sould consume only that much we need.
and not accumulate abondentely for the sake of security, because the very concept of
security is misleading. That is what we have to think. Think positively, is the need of the hour.

Dear Chris,
Thanks for your comment. Here is a quote from Jim Forest on property damage:


"Both Dorothy and Merton were firm believers in patient efforts simply to communicate to others what the Gospel is all about, what the Church teaches, and the value of paying attention to saints who in various ways set a timely example. This is not so much carrying out what are sometimes called “prophetic actions” as engaging in ordinary acts of communication. While being patient and even supportive of me and others who engaged in such dramatic acts of civil disobedience as breaking into draft offices and burning draft files, neither Dorothy nor Merton recommended such tactics as a method of protest." (Jim Forest at the Catholic Peace Fellowship conference in South Bend, Indiana, on 24 March 2007)

Dear Christopher,
I deleted your comment about Arun Gandhi by mistake. I didn't even get a chance to read it. Could you send it again.

It is my pleasure. Thank you. I would like to know what kind of organizational structure is in your mind. We, in India, had a very successful co-operative movement, which is now definitely in decline. But, this is the model I can imagine. In a co-operative organization, small producers would come together and sell their produce without having to deal with middlemen. The shining example of this movement is the largest milk producers' co-operative society in Gujarat, western state of India. It is called AMUL. Small farmers and cattle-breeders came together to form a society. The society would collect milk from them earlly in the morning and pay them fair price. This eliminated middlemen completely and brought prosperity to small people. The pioneer of the organization Dr. Kurian received fame all over the world, but now he is out of it, and the organization is being run by others.It has grown so big that it has big plants and it supplies milk to many regions in India - perhaps big money shunted Dr. Kurian out. Hegel (and Marx too) was right, every thesis carries in its womb its own anti-thesis .
