to-day working of government bodies.

individuals who are experts in their fields like renowned engineers, doctors,
lawyers, professors should be selected to head such bodies.

and other government officials.

respect of air travel, hotel stay and stay away from residence for official works

flats Type accommodation as long as they remain elected. They have to
vacate the accommodation within 2 months, if they are not elected in next
election.

politicians at the cost of public, celebrating victory in elections, celebrating oath
ceremony of political leaders on winning elections and forming government.

or caste group. .

13. The majority party willing elections should also induct senior members and
experts from opposition and other parties to form the government .This will
ensure harmony between parties and work for common cause to serve public..
14. 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 should be set up.
15 Fifty percent participation by women on all elected posts mandatory.
16 Health-care to be affordable for all, at all levels, without discrimination and be
available locally.
17 Cheap multi storeyed economical Housing to replace slums everywhere to be
implemented by every state. Every user of such apartments has to pay thru
National Security Fund, which will be automatically deducted from salary of
user of this apartment.
18 No to hoarding of any kind of political leaders for their self publicity or publicity
of party etc..
19 Farmers’ cooperatives to be owned and managed by the farmers concerned,
linked into consumers’ cooperatives to bring good rates and good prices to all.
20 No to genetically modified foodstuff.
21 Spceial task force in every district to deal with conflicts and public misues
including encroachment.
22 No FDI at the cost of local employment in any areas, especially such as retail.
No to monopolies of any kind.

2 EDUCATIONAL REFORMS

2.1 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 Value Education to cultivate
Ethics, discipline, patriotism, Humanism, Global Harmony, Peace, thru Self-
realization, Yoga and Meditation, Nature cure and respect for environment.

2.2 COMPULSORY RURAL INTERNISHIP OR MILITARY TRAINING FOR


GRADUATES
Compulsory internship to serve rural areas or serve Military be made compulsory
for every graduate, before awarding degrees. Every student has to work
compulsory for six months, in rural areas to understand problems of small towns/
villages. They will work under district Block Development Officer or Hospital or
for development projects.

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN


Those who do not want to go for rural internship can get option to get training in
Military to learn discipline and work for the nation. During this period student will
get stipend. Students will be awarded graduation only when they finish their
internship. This will apply to all disciplines like arts, engineering, medical,
commerce etc.

ECONOMIC REFORMS

3.1 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 cast less, equitable
society in future.
No to privatisation of public education be allowed and no to government funding of
private schools.
3.2 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 and unnecessary stress on
students, who can now spend more time on extracurricular, social and sports
activities.
3.3 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. This will make students more independent and responsible for their
career in place of depending upon parents. This practice is very much success
in advance nations.
3.4 RESERVATION Free school education and ban on tuitions will bring equal
opportunities for all, yet reservation may be provided for economically weaker
sections of society, but reservation for caste will be banned and for tribals it may
continue for next 5 years only, in which time frame development in tribal areas
may make them self .
3 HEALTH CARE
3.1 All Hospitals to have compulsory yoga , meditation and Naturopathy as
alternative therapy along with allopathy at highly subsidized rates.
3.2 All medical expenses at private hospitals to have uniform and affordable
rates for special surgeries and implants.
3.3 National health Insurance will be compulsory for all and deductions of
premium for insurance cover will be direct automatically from employees

6 WORLD NEEDS HUMANISM

World needs Humanism, which puts the value of all human life as the central value
and concern, higher than money or institutions. Promoting non-violence as the only
way to achieve results. The traditional religion has been misused by religious

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN


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 will be strictly banned. For all religions Religious symbolism, rituals,
prejudice and unique identity should be slowly diluted and all should move to
humanity. Service to humanity is more important than worship of gods.

7 ENVIORNMENTAL CARE

7.1 Cremation of dead bodies 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.

kms, will be allowed, to de congest them. No new projects such as shopping
malls/ office complex, central / state govt offices, educational institutions of
higher studies, and factories be allowed within 100 km of existing metro towns
at any cost, to de congest them.

8 BETTER SELF LIFE MANAGEMENT, RELATIONSHIP AND


PRODUCTIVITY THRU ADOPTION OF YOGA

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

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN


on life. Thus, adoption of yoga enables people to 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 NATIONAL ISSUES

9.1 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. )

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

9.3 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.

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

RAMESH KUMAR, GLOBAL HARMONY AND PEACE CENTRE WWW.GHPC.ORG.IN


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.

10 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 won’t 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.
