Structuring The 21st Century For Asia

| | | Share |

India is one of the earliest civilisations to produce an exemplary volume like Arthashastra which became the touchstone for rulers in endearing the concept of governance. Ancient philosophies by Chanakya are being touted as the genesis of modern economics and politics in India. Where history has engendered a proud antecedent and is conspicuous of the eminence of Ancient India, the precedent aeon is being configured to hold latent probabilities to be explored for India.

Every individual is equipped with innate favourable or constructive aptitudes or with a prepossessed inclination towards being dissentious, bleak and obstructive which bears a resultant effect in his prosperity or degeneration, an equivalent analogy is permissible on the States around the world. Every country has its distinctive ethos which works in conjunction with its executive force to propel towards knowledge, efficacy and to being the epitome of opulence. We can also construe and decipher adeptly the deeper cynicism, ignorance and defeatism of some countries. Only by the suppression of the negative attributes and by providing a fillip to the richer idiosyncratic values of the diversity of the State, it will burgeon.

Change plays a pivotal role in the proliferation of progress for any society. India in its own right, has always maintained an untarnished image and for an umpteen times, it has demonstrated its calibre as an independent Nation-state in terms of its policies and diplomacy. Although, India had been stereotyped as a Land of rivers, mountains, Gods and Goddesses, one cannot refute the fact that it has always been the epicentre of wealth and intrinsic grandeur that had lured its invaders. Post-Independence too, India has validated to the world its forethought for calibrated growth and deliberated policies that invited a blandishment from the power houses around the world. Due to its persistent beliefs and travail despite oddities, India is fast emerging as a power pillar in Asia that also serves for different countries around the globe as the world’s largest service centre.

Apparently, the best way to ascertain the prowess of a nation in the current world environment is to examine its magnitude of prosperity. India is making headway in its development process which has eventuated the locus of world’s scrutiny to be shifted to India. The depth of allurement towards Asia, especially India is manifestly observed in the US’ support for India for the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) membership and how various countries have stood with India in the UN Council.

Its prime time that all the Asian Countries stand united to foster a mutual paradigm of growth and development. A flourishing country can be plausible only if nations think alike on issues and augment opportunities for each other. Although, the long standing contention amongst India, China and Pakistan is essential to be untangled to escalate towards growth, the differing states will have to deliver a consensus to realise an Asian century by diplomatic dialogues and cooperation in trade affairs. In spite of hurdles, I am profoundly convinced that this century will be of Asia’s and India will enact as a mantle of leadership to actualise the aspirations.

This edition dear reader highlights some of the challenges for Asia and some solutions proposed by the experts on the prospect of realising the Asian Century and I am sure that this edition will give some new horizons to the vision of stakeholders.

The latest announcement in the mid of June 2016 by the Indian Government to allow 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is a big move to facilitate the defence industry and procurements for the Indian defence apparatus which will for sure enhance the development of India as well as Asia in terms of trade and investments.

I hope you will like this edition as always and I look forward to your candid feedback to make DSA more readable and acceptable.
