Parallel in Ekistics & Vedic Philosophy towards Ideal Human Settlement

Harish Tripathi [2] | Taiyaba Rashid [2]

Abstract: Man, since he has set foot on the earth, has always strived to maximize his potential contacts with nature, with his fellow human beings, with other works of man while expending minimum possible energy and efforts for optimization of mans protective space so that he can fulfill his aspirations for a better life without compromising with his own personal space. This paper is based on a doctoral thesis which discusses the idea of ideal human settlements in the light of the Ekistics and the Vedic philosophies towards the common goal of welfare of mankind in totality. The paper aims to look back at these two theories and establish their greatness and relevance in addressing the common issues of human settlements in totality. It is an attempt to rediscover the gems that these two theories are but does not represent either of the two philosophies fully. This study, hence, looks at the philosophies of Ekistics and the Vedas parallel to each other based on an assumption that the ultimate aim of humanity remains onesaving time and energy for the well- being of mankindthough different pathways might exist and different approaches might be adopted.

Keywords: Optimization, Ekistics, Vedic, Human settlements, parallel
