WILL YOU ACCEPT MY-SYSTEM APPROACH?

Poor are not poor but were made poor; they have got
voices but made suppressed; they have energy but
being exploited; all victimized people are poor and all
poor are victims of the system fault.

Poverty does not come by birth, it is an acquired


situation. The circumstances in a nation are the major
factors where people can flourish or deteriorate.

C@ RK Kshetry
SYSTEM APPROACH? WILL YOU ACCEPT ME?

Poor are product of difficult circumstances; the


circumstances are the products of fault systems; the
fault systems are the products of wrong men in
decision making; wrong men in leadership are the
products of poor people’s votes;

poor people made wrong decision in selecting ‘the


best among the worst leaders’’ and gave them consent
for ruling over themselves which is product of low
level of awareness about civic
C@ RK rights.

YOU ARE A VICTIM OF SYSTEM FAULT: NOT POOR !

Low level of awareness is the product of lack of good


education because education makes people easy to
lead but difficult to enslave.
The education, under colonized developing countries,
does not emphasize in identifying inner potentiality
rather it produces exact photocopies after going
through memorization based courses. The lack of
proper education, eventually, is the result of fault in
the existing systems.

WHAT DIFFERENCE WE NEED AT INDIVIDUAL LEVEL ?

The difference is the attitude of the people, framed


along the years by the education and the culture.

On analyzing the behavior of the people in developed


countries, we find that the great majority follow the
following principles in their lives:
 Integrity
 Responsibility
Respect to the laws and rules and rights of other
Work loving
 Strive for saving and investment
Will of super action C@ RK Kshetry
WHAT WE NEED AT NATIONAL LEVEL ? DECONSTRUCTION?

 Leadership with the nation building visions


 All political parties’ shared visions and goals
 Empowered ‘public watch dog’ group
 Readiness for change among all stakeholders

Conclusion: System Reform with Good Leadership are


main factor for development of Japan and 4 tigers
Right Now ! Let’s visualize, only talk about potentiality
You give me hope …I give you alternatives !
