Replace the “Mai-baap Sarkaar Raj” with ‘Dharma/Justice’.
The subsequent questions are,
What is our idea of Development & Success ?
What is Dharma, Consciousness & our idea of India itself ?
- OUR IDEA OF DEVELOPMENT & SUCCESSThis is the Dharmic society that Bharat evolved into over long periods of time. This is what we wish to restore & re-establish. This is the idea of Ram Rajya & not Hindu Supremacy. The ancient gurukuls, ashrams & vidyalas, in essence, did not indoctrinate people to believe in a certain way of life only. Even if they apparently did, those beliefs were designed & programmed to self destruct after a certain point & destroy all other baggage of beliefs which is often collected with “learning” during the journey & make way for pure consciousness to sprout & spread. This is the reason, thoughtlessness or thoughtless awareness is emphasized more than anything in different Dharmic traditions. Cultivating a sphere of “No Influence”, neither good nor bad, on the self for short, long, prolonged & finally for infinite periods of time gradually created innumerable known, less known and unknown Shankaracharyas, Buddhas, Vivekananda, Nanaks, Mahavir, Prataps & Shivaji.
- WHAT IS CONSCIOUSNESS & HOW DOES IT INFLUENCE THE INDIVIDUAL & SOCIETY?The socio-political discourses of western universalism do not talk about Consciousness. At best about Awakening.

Hence understanding it through the mind is impossible. The more it develops within us, it changes our motivations & aspirations. It changes the shape of our mind. We aspire & act in ways like we never had. Our destinations change & hence our journies to change
