REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS FOR REFORMS IN INDIA

In India corruption is the main source of diversion of development funds from
needy to greedy people. The judiciary has failed to give justice and book culprits
due to flaws in our laws and poor governance models. We need system change
at all levels with zeal to take India forward to a Developed nation.

One of the obstacle in implementation of schemes by present government has
been the lack of majority in Upper house of Parliament. Today government
cannot take hard, unpopular decisions which will pay way for equality and dilute
poverty, due to protest by vested interests, which are submerged into the
governance system like ash in a machine, too difficult to clean. To clean the ash
of corruption and vested interests Government needs tools to uproot such
elements with a harsh and strict rule. The erosion of moral values by political
leaders has lead nation to unrest seen, today everywhere. We need harsh
measures, to sensitize the leaders, to make them nationalists and work for
welfare of people for what they are meant and not to rule the people thru wealth
and power. For this to happen, the government needs new policies, new systems
which deliver and are not just eye wash. Here are few suggestions aimed at
above issues raised.

1 EDUCATION REFORMS

1.1 COMPULSORY VALUE EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS AND
COLLEGES.
Since moral values are on decline day by day with advent of technology.
All schools/ colleges /institutions will have to provide six months training on Value
Education to cultivate discipline , patriotism, Humanism Global Harmony ,
peace, Self-realization thru Yoga and Meditation, nature cure and Nature Care
during final year of graduate studies. National cadet Corps , Military training ,
Indian Administrative Service ,Rural Development , Medical Council of India all
these departments will work out a syllabus for six months rigorous training of
graduates. A central agency of HRD Ministry will work out a mechanism to ensure
quality of value education to be imparted by various government , private , public
colleges . All colleges will hire trained teachers in value education for this
purpose.

1.2 COMPULSORY RURAL INTERNISHIP FOR GRADUATES
Compulsory civic servicing as intern for one year after graduation for every
student to work in rural areas and understand problems of India in different
disciplines under district Block Development Officer or Rural Hospital and
development projects. During this period student will get stipend. Students will

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN
be issued graduation certificate only when they finish their internship. This will
apply to all disciplines like arts, engineering, medical, commerce etc. This way
the youth will get chance to serve the nation.

2.0 ECONOMIC REFORMS

2.1 FREE SCHOOL EDUCATION
Nationalize all public and private schools and let rich and poor children study
under one common roof till High school. This will make a castle, equitable society
in future. Children will get uniform education and equal opportunities. Parents
struggle for money will be drastically reduced and will lead to a more peaceful
society with less crimes. Today parents work hard to earn extra money so that
their children could get better in studies. With free education they will be relieved
of this burden and will find more free time for more useful creative activities for
the family.
2.2 Ban Tutorial classes for entrance examinations to medical and IIT
admissions, and let children be selected on their natural own merits and aptitude.
This will also reduce economic burden on parents.
2.3 SOFT LOANS FOR HIGHER STUDIES
For higher studies like engineering, management, IT , health care Government
should provide education loans to students at lower rates and recover the loan
amount when the students start earning. However, parents won’t be asked to
share loan amount. The loan agreement will be direct between student and
government.

2.4 All Hospitals to have compulsory yoga , meditation and Naturopathy
treatment system along with allopathy at highly subsidized rates.

3.0 Support to manufacturing / Realizing Make In India

3.1 GST on products and services made by manufacturing in India to be 5
% (maximum). There will be no MODVAT on this and no need to keep records
.No input tax rebate. Reduced GST rates will make products competitive to
imports from China.

3.2 To encourage manufacturing with quality and international standards all
machines and technologies imported must be allowed with net 5 % Customs duty
.No indirect add on.

3.3 SSI / MSI Industries must be given cheaper lands, but at least 50 kms
away from main towns and with proper infrastructure like roads , electricity,
sewerage , and water.

3.4 Government will provide its own waste processing plant so that industrial
waste is not dumped into nearby lake or river. Eco friendly technologies to be
used in manufacturing.
3.5 The government industrial development officers will facilitate and guide
entrepreneurs and not behave as police inspectors.
3.6 Labour Reforms
All manufacturing and trading units to employ labour with ESI and PF
coverage, irrespective of strength. All employees will have compulsory health
and life insurance. No trade unions will be allowed as trade leaders exploit labour
and hamper production.

The maximum ratio between highest paid and lowest paid worker will be not
be more than 1 ; 10 .Instead of bonus all workers will get incentive at the end of
year based on performance of unit.

4.0 Good Governance thru accountability
Good governance is a system that delivers services to its citizens without any
bias to status, caste of position. India and many similar Asian nations have very
poor, slow, and lethargic judicial system. Bureaucrats have no accountability.
The people in power and politics often misuse their power with support of
bureaucrats to meet selfish motives. Political rivals use media to negate reforms
and positive development of government in power. In such atmosphere drastic
changes are required where law can be enforced with strictness. Bureaucrats
should be made accountable and should be punished for non-performance or
given rewards for good performance.
4.1 There are few generic defects of traditional liberal democracy leading to
growth of competition, militarism/ terrorism, inequality, and corruption. Too much
democracy is counterproductive and often misused by leftist or rightist. Human
rights and freedom are absolute necessary but not at cost of disharmony, or
causing loss to mankind, and national integration, counter to national goals and
hurting others.
4.2 Strict rules and regulations should be enforced and the citizens whether
rich or poor should have general respect for abiding the law of the land and
should be scared of flouting rules, damaging public property or violating traffic
rules or doing economic offences.

5 SOLUTIONS TO CURRENT LONG STANDING UNRESOLVED
NATIONAL ISSUES

5.1 Ayodhya Temple - The Supreme court should give its verdict based upon
Archeological findings and built the temple. Mosque can be relocated. In order
to build cordial relations between all religions, Ram Temple should start a high
tech research center in Ayodhya on Spirituality ( where scholars for all religions
will do research on Spiritualism and Humanism with aim to improve quality of
life of people. )

5.2 Kashmir Issue on Article 371 : With active Judiciary this should be
implemented thru Supreme court to bring uniformity in all states of India.

5.3 Relations with present Mufti government should be broken as they support
separatists.

5.4 MNCs should be allowed to develop Kashmir as tourist hub on lines of
Switzerland without disturbing ecology of Kashmir and bring employment and
improve economy of the region.

5.0 WORLD NEEDS HUMAN RELIGION

The traditional religion has been misused by religious heads to create
supremacy of one class and the world has witnessed endless wars on grounds
of religion since inception of known history. In the process we have forgotten
the real purpose of religion. In a cohesive society the aim of religion should be,
to be a good human being. So, religion must teach us to respect elders,
parents, teachers and seniors. We have moral duty and accountability towards
our family, society, and nation. Religion teaches us to have good manners,
noble behaviors, attitude of love towards all human beings (care for humans),
discipline etc. Religion also advises fair practice and honesty in dealing with
family relations, business transactions and trade practices. Most of the
religions teach ethics and moral values. So, all must respect each other’s
religion in place of establishing supremacy.

6.1 Practice of religious rituals that pollute air, water and noise level and
block road traffic should be strictly banned. For all religions Religious symbolism,

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN
rituals, prejudice and unique identity should be slowly diluted and move to
humanity.

6.2 People should shed away slowly Religious symbols and be good human
beings.

The world will get peace when hardcore religious men / women,
will shed their religious symbols and join mainstream world citizens.
The peace will come fast when people,
will shed religious rituals and work for humanity, equality and harmony.
The peace will come still faster when all,
start realizing self- consciousness and take decisions for the betterment
of society in place of running after materialistic pursuits.
The peace will come still fastest when all,
start adopting Yoga, meditation and nature cure for betterment of body and
mind.

7.0 ENVIORNMENT PROTECTION NEEDS STRICT RULES

7.1 Cremation for Hindus should be strictly thru gas and electric cremation and
wood burning should be slowly banned in phased manner.

7.2 Crop burning should be banned with strict rules and capital punishment.

7.3 No New construction projects in existing metro towns within vicinity of 50
kms, be allowed to de congest them like malls, shopping centres, central / state
govt offices, educational institutions of higher studies , factories etc.

8.0 BETTER SELF LIFE MANAGEMENT, RELATIONSHIP AND
PRODUCTIVITY THRU ADOPTION OF YOGA
Yoga is union of the body, mind, and spirit and this is what differentiates yoga
from general exercise programs. Consistent yoga practice improves depression
and can lead to significant increases in serotonin levels the happy hormones and
increase immune system. One of the main goals of yoga is to achieve tranquility
of the mind and create a sense of well-being, feelings of relaxation, improved
self-confidence, improved efficiency, increased attentiveness, lowered irritability,
and an optimistic outlook on life. Thus, adoption of yoga enables people to

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN
harmonize the relations within the family, within the community and within the
individual.

At the epicenter of reforms in the society is self-transformation as source of good
or evil thoughts, originate from the mind. Often we ignore, self-consciousness
due to our ego, and run after physical comforts for self. Ignoring self-
consciousness and caring only for physical comforts, we create all type of
problems around us whether it is our self, or our family relations or our society,
or our nation or our world. The unrest that starts from self-spills over to world due
to our egoism, the centre of which is self-consciousness, which once established
by all, will lead to a better world.

Self- realization occurs thru management and coordination between mind,
intellect, consciousness, physical body and the ego. The perfect coordination is
achieved thru yoga and meditation. New ideas will continue to hatch as long as
humans work on self- transformation leading to evolution of new systems that
will lead to a more peaceful world tomorrow.
9.0 New Political System
The politics world over is getting criminalized day by day. The race to win in
politics and business is so intense that it is killing all ethics. Law makers have
become most law breakers.The political system worldwide has become most
corrupt and root cause of unrest everywhere. The greed to lust and power makes
politicians to commit crimes to beat rivals in elections.
9.1 We need to discard concept of crony capitalism where industry and
governments favour each other at cost of general public. In general, any system
that allows paid advertising for candidates who opt for elections, polarizes minds
of voters and weakens democracy. In practice, it is almost the same as allowing
purchasing of ballot.
9.2 Non- Partisan system of democracy is a better alternative to party based
system. This is not new. It existed in Greece and practiced even now in few nations in
the world. Since the party system has failed and has been criminalized, it is suggested
that Non- partisan democracy system be set up in elections.
9.3 The need is for searching leaders who can work selflessly to make a
just and equitable society. There is need to allow only selfless, knowledgeable,
RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN
dedicated persons who vow to renounce, can dedicate their life for betterment of
their respective area.
9.4 The digital technology, online awareness and TV media will be
extensively used for giving exposure to all such candidates willing to be elected
as individual candidates by the local regions at state expenses. The individual
candidates will not be allowed to spend their personal money so that no one can
influence voters by money power. Professionals with high achievements in life
will be selected by an advisory council to Executive Cabinet, consisting of senior
representatives from University, research establishments, Judiciary, Security
etc. The laws in parliament will be made on majority voting and consensus.

10 TARGETED DISARMAMENT

Even though every nation says it wants to live in peace, we spend billion dollars
every day to defend ourselves against each other. This is the worst conceivable
waste of resources. If all nations start disarmament by 10 % annual, we could
save billions of dollars that could be used for welfare of poor. Modi ji can set a
revolution by decreasing defense budget by 10% annually.

11 NEW UNBIASED UNO

A new UNO which represents equal rights for all sovereign nations with a strong
effective control is very much needed. The new UNO wont have any veto power
assigned to any nation, but represents equal status among member nations. All
conflicts will be resolved thru majority vote. India can take a lead on concept of
new UNO.
