The Socio - Economic Thought of M. K. Gandhi

Dr. Biswajit Baidya [9]

Abstract: India is imitated and appreciated worldwide for the biggest victory of history, accomplished with the greatest weapons mankind has ever used - - - nonviolence and truthfulness. However, in the recent times violence has become the order of the day and moral values have stopped down to an all time low. People are increasingly being influenced by the western culture and in the process moving away from our traditions, culture and value systems. At a time when the entire world is keen on practicing Gandhian principles, we are avoiding Gandhi. It is high time academicians, intellectuals and elders in the society should review seriously the situation and capture this dangerous phenomenon by carefully nurturing the right values in the younger generation who are the future of the nation. This is very important at this moment when the nation is poised to take off as a global economic leader because without the right social and ethical environment, no amount of economic development can contribute to improvement in overall quality life. At this moment Gandhian philosophy is of more relevance and Gandhian values and principles for human development must be actively promoted among the present generation to help them lay the right foundation for a happy tomorrow. If we observe the works and achievements of Mahatma Gandhi?s entire life, we can see that he put people above all; he also gave immense importance to the socio - economic life of the people. There were various types of social ills in India at that time; Gandhi was preoccupied with the deep thought of rooting them out. Mahatma Gandhi tried to solve these problems through his principled social and economic thinking.
