The great visionary Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay has said that “Every country has its own peculiar historical, social and economic situations and its leaders decide the remedies to the ills that beset the country from time to time, taking into consideration its background. It is illogical to believe that remedies which the leaders of one country decided to try for their problems are likely to be applicable as such to all other peoples.”
According to Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay, “socialism arose as a reaction to capitalism. But even socialism failed to establish the importance of the human being. Socialists contented themselves by merely transferring the ownership of capital in the hands of the State. But the State is even more of an impersonal institution. There is no such thing as individual freedom in the socialist system and there are no provisions to inspire the individual to fulfill his role.”
Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay has given a socio-economic theory called Integral Humanism, according to this theory “Man the highest creation of God is losing his own identity. We must re-establish him in his rightful position, being him the realization of his greatness, reawaken his abilities and encourage him to exert for attaining divine heights of his latest personality. This is possible only through a decentralized economy.”
According to Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay- Chiti is a nation’s soul. The strength and energy activating the nation are called “Virat” and channeled by ‘Chiti’. The place of ‘Virat’ in the life of a nation is similar to that of Prana in the body. Just as ‘Prana’ infuses strength in various organs of the body, refreshed the intellect and keeps body and soul together; so also in a nation, with a strong ‘Virat’ alone can democracy succeed and the government be effective. Then the diversity of our nation does not prove an obstacle to our national unity. The difference of languages. occupations, etc. are present everywhere. However, when the ‘Virat’ is awake, diversity does not lead to conflicts and people co-operates with each other like the various limbs of the human body or like the members of a family.
Here I would like to quote the main theme of Mr. George Gilder’s Spirit of Enterprise too, Mr. Gilder used to say that “Demand is homogenous and meaningless, all economic growth comes from human creativity and it comes as a surprise, it cannot be demanded. Atmospheres that suppress/restrict the creativity of entrepreneurs cannot flourish (thrive) the economy. It is not dollar in people’s pocket but ideas in their head that matters.”
I believe a proactive leadership can channelize both positive and negative energies for the growth of the nation and India under the leadership of Mr. Narendra Modi is a perfect example for this. Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay’s theory of integral humanism and Mr. George Gilder’s spirit of enterprise can provide a right direction to the world economy.
