Unfortunately, the welfarist mindsets ruling the country discourage self-reliance. But employment is every Indian’s birth right. Those who thrive on borrowed ideas alone may laugh at innovative ideas but can’t fault the potential for economic growth germane to the typically Indian ethos, environment and wholesome development. What does a big industry give? It is germane to large industry to create pollution, garbage and effluents without proper disposal. Large industry need not replace village industry but must only supplement and complement the economic needs of the nation.
Mechanisation of the order of advanced industrialised cities may not be necessary. Climate change, pollution and life style diseases have already spurred thoughtful people to move to virgin lands not polluted by noise, poor quality air, contaminated water, internet, TV, newspapers. Wasn’t that being offered by the villages? If means of livelihood are made available, people would like to live in villages. It is possible to do so as there is enough work for every hand as there is enough food for every stomach.
