Dear countrymen we have diagnosed our perpetual maladies
and have found their cure in a true leadership and a prudent system of governance.
And then implementing the plans as discussed. Like the struggle for freedom
from feudal system now it is struggle for freedom from ignorant and treacherous
system of governance and this we plan to achieve through a Public Interest
Litigation (PIL) against the system of governance and then execute the plans
of prosperity as deciphered in the book 'Crusade
Without a rigid
foundation one cannot construct a super structure neither without a
prudent system of governance can we construct a prosperous nation.
Solution to all problems afflicting our nation and implementing the
ideas discussed in the book 'Crusade India' call for establishing
this kind of governance first.
We pledge to change the system for a better tomorrow
The government of
a country is supposed to be the guardians of its people. People look in
their government the love of a mother, prudence of a father and ability
of a guardian to show them the right path and lead them to prosperity. The
basic virtues of a good governance are sincerity, devotion and a will to
work with integrity and prudence. There must be an unflinching loyalty and
determination to achieve the promised goals. However, what was expected
has not happened. The power went into the hands of those who were incapable
by their actions and callous by their deeds. It erected a system that eroded
human values and character, such that kleptocracy and fratricidal attitudes
reigned supreme. Dwindling hopes, defeated morales and depleted strength
of the people with haunting uncertainties for the future have become the
order of the day. The sacrifice and purpose of the struggle for freedom
is long lost. Unemployment is rising and would be rising even more rapidly
in times ahead. The youth is worried because of a sprawling bleak and uncertain
future before them. The parents are worried for the welfare of their families
and future of their children (talking of a common man).
We liberated ourselves from the clutches
of the British but fell prey to the dictums of our own guardians, their
haggard philosophies and the falsely created bureaucracy. We are now under
the shackles of our own system of governance and are more caged in than
liberated. The system has bled the country dry and rendered it poor, illiterate
and backward. This system cannot deliver any good in future also. The sooner
we realise this harsh reality sooner we can save our future.
People languish miserably in their own
country under the rule of their own people.
pause and determine if we should always watch helplessly our system
glutting our fortune before our eyes and we only gasp in awe and despair
like the timid cats before the monkey! Or arise to thwart away this
We aim at a holistic approach for the whole nation in one attempt to ensure
prosperity and well-being for all through an exhaustive planning and control
of the whole nation (see the Management
at the end of the book 'Crusade
Calling for reforms
Dear countrymen, please
try to understand this message. It means a lot to our nation and the poor
we. We are not indifferent neither inferior to any race or culture of this
civilized and progressive world. Like indifferent parents our guardians
have failed to guide us and show us the right path. But we can always retract
and restart. It is never too late. we may not be able to retrieve what we
have lost neither provide solace to those who have already laid down their
lives due to wants, sufferings and miseries, but we can surely reconstruct
our tomorrow as we want - prosperous, happy and healthy for all those living
and the future generations. In the book 'Crusade
', we have shown that we can do it. The course may
be difficult but not impossible. It may be long but not unending. After
all if we have endured it for 60 years to reach this ramshackled and dilapidated
state, we can surely give a few more years to pull ourselves out of it.
Let's be determined and get started. Good parents always think of their
children; so should we for ours and the future generations. Parents do it
happily for their children, we are sure we shall do so for ours.
Much has been lost but not all, therefore
arise and start here and now, the present available moment, before we lose
it again into wilderness. Let us choose a system, that would be worthy,
and prudent and capable of eradicating our miseries, poverty, illiteracy,
ignorance and backwardness and restoring our lost values and self-esteem.
An ignorant system that leads us to illiteracy and ignorance must be shunned.
A disease not cured timely becomes incurable. Let's change the doctor before
this happens. We have seen a dream for all of us and that can be transformed
into reality if we are willing. We can build a tomorrow that will have a
purpose of our existence and bring us prosperity and dignity.
Era of illiterate
franchise, ignorant polity and novice bureaucracy has proved disastrous.
The present state of affairs of our country is the logical outcome of the
illogical system of governance, that we have erected for ourselves. The
system must necessarily be run through professionals and experts, be it
governance or its administration (legislature and executive). The leader
must be a visionary and capable of addressing the whole nation and its entire
populace, and not a group or a particular class or a part of it. Snatching
bread from one and giving it to another (policy of reservation) lacks humanity
and consideration. A true guardian of the family cannot deny food to one
to feed the other rather would keep hungry himself and search for avenues
to arrange food for all. If we could fight the British Imperialism, why
not an evil that is self-inflicted. Let us wake up to accomplish our lost
glory and reverence and reconstruct a nation of our dreams, one of the mightiest
and most prosperous in the world.
We are looking for a democracy that
can inculcate in us a feeling of patriotism (not partisanship) and love
(not hatred) for our brethren. A sense of dedication and sacrifice for a
cause - a cause for our nation and its people. We are looking for a system
where people are self-disciplined, conscientious and aware of their duties
and responsibilities, are courteous and sensitive to the fellow beings,
where there is seriousness and concern in whatever we think or do. We want
to inculcate an evolutionary feeling in our people, so that one day we are
amongst the mightiest nations in the world not by virtue of possessing nuclear
arsenals or by not signing CTBT but by our hardwork, actions and deeds.
- We shall achieve strength through peaceful coexistence practising love
and affection for all and our neighbours,
- We shall achieve prosperity and happiness through our vision, hard work,
- Collective utilisation of our mental and physical strengths and nature's
gifts to us.
The purpose of the government will be
to not only control but also inculcate in the people a feeling of love,
trust and dignity for all. The government shall work like true guardians
of its people. Our rich cultural values that have been torn and mutilated
shall be restored gradually. We shall work as one country, one people and
one race for a common goal and our goal is to make this country as one of
the mightiest and most prosperous nations in the world with no more illiteracy
and miseries of lives.
We will also form monitoring committees,
different committees for different activities (see the three charts in the
'). While the President and his select team of executives
shall be responsible for carrying out the policies and aims of the government,
the monitoring committees shall keep an eye on implementation of objectives,
health of the nation and well-being of the people.
Monitoring of all activities
This is just a brief idea which can be developed to arrive at a system that
shall be effective and work for the well-being of the people. Knowledge,
expertise, professionalism, an intense affinity with the nation and feel
for the masses shall be the essential requirements for all in the system
either as team of experts with the President or as executive members of
the governing and monitoring committees, irrespective of whether they are
selected or elected. Representation from all states and its constituencies
will be essential to ensure that the interests and aspirations of the people
of the land are taken care of. For adequate representation we may select
executives from within their respective areas of operation. For example
the CEO as noted in the charts to control a city centre must preferably
be selected from within a city centre, similarly to control a state from
the whole state, while to control at the centre on all-India basis.
One will notice from the charts that now more local representation will
be possible, as for each city centre there will be a number of local experts
chosen for different disciplines. There will be about 1000 such centres
in the country, besides state level representations. To begin with we can
utilise the services of leading software consultants Þ Wipro, Tata
and Infosys or any other, to identify the right people. We have enormous
plans in mind to engage gainfully the entire educated class of our country
from all disciplines. Similarly we have plans for the remaining youth also
to be engaged gainfully as noted in Chapter 1.
It is God's gift that we have brains that are regarded as best in the world
in their respective fields. Our present day children are very intelligent
and aware of their surroundings. Our youth and children can do anything
of the world. We will give them a chance that they have been deprived so
Dear friends, we have discussed these issues with different
people of our country and most want a change in the existing system of governance
so that we can work for the progress and prosperity of the people. The path
may be Herculean and tough but, not impossible. And we cannot give up our
efforts for the prosperity of the people and good of the nation just because
it is tough and may have a lot of hurdles in its way.
The parents of a child ailing with a dreadful chronic disease never give
up and keep trying all possible avenues to find a cure one day. Remember
the case of the conjoined sisters (Ladan and Laleh Bijani of Iran), born
inseparable by brain but wished to be separated in order to live normal
lives. Accepting the challenge more than 100 surgeons around the world joined
hands and put up relentless research to one day make the impossible happen.
And Lo! They almost did it. It is another matter that the sisters couldn't
be saved (they died in July, 2003). Nevertheless efforts put in by them
is worth praising. Their efforts shall go in the annals of history giving
a message "never give up."
Now, it is our turn as the true sons of the soil, to take a pledge for our
motherland and pull it out from the sombre clutches of our ignorant and
selfish system of governance responsible for leaving our people in the lurch
and making them suffer untold miseries and woes of lives for long 60 years.
Our utopian philosophy as some may call it, is no less difficult. But let
us not be crippled with the fear of failure. Let us dedicate our mite and
be assured we shall achieve our goal for the good of the nation and well-being
of its suffering people. A man-eater is eliminated rather than tamed. Similarly,
our present system of governance must be uprooted to rid us of our sufferings
and woes, leaving us free to progress as we may wish, similar to our demands
from British Feudal System during the struggle for freedom. Friends, you
have a sprawling future ahead and we have great expectations from you. Please
therefore, as the worthy sons of our soil gird up your loins and spread
out this message far and wide, and surely we shall do it one day. Nothing
is impossible before an unswerving resolution, perseverance and continued
If prosperity of the nation and well-being of the people has ever been in
your thoughts then let us endeavor to achieve this. A Society named "Crusade
has been formed to give shape to the
ideas outlined in the book 'Crusade
'. Dedicated experts and professionals, sensitive
and responsive to the people's need and willing to join the movement may
please join this Society which is free of cost so that "Crusade
becomes a movement in the country and
we together shape India as one of the most powerful and prosperous nations
in the world.
We also appeal to all Indians worldwide who agree
with our views to propagate this message with all their patriotic zeal amongst
all the NRIs worldwide.
Here is a chance to do this.
Let this not slip out of our hands
There is nothing great in living for ourselves.
Live for others and yea,
we will have lived our lives.
