The mystical Indian subcontinent has fascinated millions of people. It is the cradle of various spiritual teachings of relaxation - from Tantra, the Indian art of love, to relaxing Yoga. The focus always lay with the union of the body, mind and soul. Let yourself, therefore, be carried off into in the realm of inner peace and enjoy moments of tranquility and happiness. For painting soothes the soul and is the simplest form of anti-stress training.

India s Hegemonic Design in Bangladesh

India is a postcolonial Third World country, rather a conglomerate of diverse nations, who either became parts of a 'mega nation' at the time of the Partition, by default; or were coerced into joining the artificial, fractured entity.

India is a postcolonial Third World country, rather a conglomerate of diverse nations, who either became parts of a 'mega nation' at the time of the Partition, by default; or were coerced into joining the artificial, fractured entity. Kashmir, Hyderabad, Goa, Mysore, and several other princely states are examples of territories grabbed by New Delhi. The real India--as opposed to the so-called 'Shining India'-is where about 70% people are neglected and about 35% people are below poverty line. The Seven Sisters in the northeast (Arunachal, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura) are completely different from the rest of the country, both in economic and political terms. Rest of the world looks at India as 1.3-billion-man market. Interestingly, while educated and well-versed Indian strategic thinkers do not believe their country has the potentials to become a superpower, ever, sections of Indian politicians and Hindu nationalists - suffering from the delusion of grandeur - want their country to become an empire, as it once existed in the ancient period, stretching, broadly speaking, from Afghanistan to Indonesia, as also dreamt by Nehru. However, while India cannot make peace with itself, with its own diverse nations - some nurturing centrifugal tendencies - its BJP-RSS supported hegemonic 'Akhand Bharat' designs in the neighbouring countries are bound to backfire. Seemingly, India will have to cede some territories to China in the south of the disputed McMohan Line, eventually! In any case, India, since the first electoral victory by the proponents of Hindutva Fascism under Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1998, and especially since the second round of victory under Narendra Modi in 2014, has almost become a totalitarian Hindu State with the façade of parliamentary democracy. Amendments of citizenship laws, the National Register of Citizens (NRC), 2003 and the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 are grossly prejudiced against Indian Muslims. Millions of them have already been earmarked as intruders from Bangladesh and Pakistan. The marginalization of Muslims in India - like the Nazi social exclusion of the Jews in Germany - is the first major step towards India's transformation into a full-fledged proto-fascist country. Meanwhile, the ongoing violent physical attacks on Muslims and demonizing Islam and India's Muslim rulers have become the norms in Modi's India. The Hindutva fascists not only publicly declare to undo the Partition of 1947, but also have virtually turned Bangladesh into a client state by installing the pro-Indian puppet regime under the Awami League of Sheikh Hasina in 2008. It goes without saying that the Hasina-led Awami regime, while being a bootlicking Indian lackey, is an utterly corrupt, overwhelmingly oppressive, and widely election-rigging fascist regime at home in Bangladesh. The combined result is an unfailing demonstration that the long-term consequences of the rise of Hindutva fascism are going to be disastrous not only for India, but also the smaller neighbours like Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, Burma, and Sri Lanka.

After World War II a select number of countries outside Japan and the West--those that Alice Amsden calls "the rest"--gained market share in modern industries and altered global competition. By 2000, a great divide had developed within "the rest", the lines drawn according to prewar manufacturing experience and equality in income distribution. China, India, Korea and Taiwan had built their own national manufacturing enterprises that were investing heavily in R&D. Their developmental states had transformed themselves into champions of science and technology. By contrast, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico had experienced a wave of acquisitions and mergers that left even more of their leading enterprises controlled by multinational firms. The developmental states of Mexico and Turkey had become hand-tied by membership in NAFTA and the European Union. Which model of late industrialization will prevail, the "independent" or the "integrationist," is a question that challenges the twenty-first century.

This book emphasizes the need for experimenting with more deliberate and rigorous policy processes to attain balanced regional development, which can promote both equity and efficiency in India’s development discourse. The institutional mechanisms for dealing with regional imbalance in India have not been very successful so far. With rising discrepancies in development, demand for autonomy continues along with a new dimension of regionalism arising from submerged identity along with political and economic aspirations, which demanded new channels for solution. So far, attempts to create space for autonomy have possibly not optimally accommodated the conceptual mechanisms like equity and democratic process. Thus democratizing policy process using six pillars of voice: knowledge, objective, fundamental values, implementation framework and public awareness can ensure a better policy outcome for dealing with the persistent challenges of regional disparity in India. This book further focuses on the need for democratizing the policy process for regional development through discussion and inclusion. Such a transition needs innovation in policy regime, which can be attained through following six pillars (i) Democratic voice of stakeholders in policy development and implementation; (ii) Clear policy objectives that advance the common good, based on voice; (iii) Unbiased, sound and comprehensive knowledge and data bases. (iv) Consistency with constitutional values; (v) A sound implementation framework ensuring user-friendliness, transparency and rationality of decision-making processes, effective grievance redress, clear accountability and independent evaluation; (vi) Public awareness and support of policies with relevant and public participation in implementation.
