 Public Policy Making In India: Issues and Remedies by O.P. Agarwal & T.V. Somanathan Abstract Public policy-making in India has frequently been characterized by a failure to anticipate needs, impacts, or reactions which could have reasonably been foreseen, thus impeding economic development. Policies have been reversed or changed more frequently than warranted by exogenous changes or new information. This paper is concerned with why India's policy- making structures have so much difficulty in formulating the "right" policy and then sticking to it. It goes on to ask, and make a mode ..read more

"We have for over a century been dragged by the prosperous West behind its chariot, choked by the dust, deafened by the noise, humbled by our own helplessness, and overwhelmed by the speed. We agreed to acknowledge that this chariot-drive was progress, and that progress was civilization. If we ever ventured to ask, 'Progress towards what, and progress for whom,' it was considered to be peculiarly and ridiculously oriental to entertain such doubts about the absoluteness of progress. Of late, a voice has come to us bidding us to take count not only of the scientific perfection of the chariot but ..read more

Scope Of Smṛti And Nature Of A Dhārmic State – Part 3 by Shankara Bharadwaj Khandavalli

 Envisaging a Native Constitution A constitution based on dharma and meant for a dhārmic society, would ideally base itself on the scheme of dharma. It understands how morality builds bottom up and takes cognizance of institutions of society that help maintain such a moral order. The reconciliation between individual and collective reflects in the way constitution enshrines ideals. Besides, a native constitution takes cognizance of dhārmic view of man instead of an occidental view. This has several implications on how a constitution designed for a Hindu society looks like. Layering First ..read more

 Nature as Teacher and the Trustee One of the most important aspects of dhārmic thought is seeing Nature as the ultimate teacher. It is not just about understanding Nature and Her workings, but about basing the design of the most evolved human institutions on such lessons.  The philosophical schools see matter and consciousness as the two primal principles of creation, and nature to be the primal mother of all beings – the sustainer, the giver of upādhi-s or faculties of experience, the provider of phenomenal experiences that beget beings the three-fold experiences of life. In the ca ..read more

 Abstract After independence in 1947 this is arguably the most opportune time for us to contemplate on a constitution and a state design that aligns best with the nation. Right from the notion of nation-state and union of states, to rights to ideals like equality to choice of democracy to secularism, the modern systems known were adopted in Indian constitution. There has not been an analysis or a debate of whether these align with Bhārata, there has only been an attempt to make these successful in Bhārata with an implicit assumption that Bhārata should scale up to these ideals of modern ..read more

 The more things change, the more they stay the same. While there may be many topics that are anachronistic, there are still many arts and sciences, values, and attitudes that are time-tested and embedded in Puranic knowledge systems. Furthermore, since they are embedded in Indian ethos, there is a continuity in learning. In this paper, we examine the concept of Rajadharma presented in Matsya Purana, the benefits of studying and disseminating it to suit contemporary needs. Puranas can frequently be treated as sociological treatises and offer valuable information about ..read more

Introduction to Kautilya and his Arthashastra  Kautilya was a learned, ethical, wise, experienced, secular, progressive, independent and original thinker. He believed that poverty was death while living. His Arthashastra is a manual on promoting Yogakshema—peaceful enjoyment of prosperity—for all the people. It is shown that his approach is more suitable to our economy than the currently adopted western approach. He understood the economic system as an organic whole with interdependent parts. He undertook an in-depth and detailed analysis of each part at the micro level without losing sig ..read more

Corporate social responsibility or CSR as we know it today, has always been a part of Indian culture and history.  Traditionally, business communities have always supported construction of dharmashalas, panjrapols, ghats, and pathshalas.  In one of the earliest printed books in India published in 1863, the author Govid Madgaokar makes a mention of annachhatras patronized by the rich in the nineteenth century Mumbai.  In modern day equivalents, these can be termed as holiday inns, animal-health clinics, river-fronts, primary schools, a ..read more
