He conceived the political philosophy Integral Humanism – the guiding philosophy of the Barbarity Kanata Party. The philosophy of Integral Humanism advocate the simultaneous and integrated program of the body, mind and intellect and soul of each human being. He visualized for India a decentralized polity and self-reliant economy with the village as the base. Hindustan Monday, 09 February 2009 BGP Philosophy : Hindustan (Cultural Nationalism) Hindustan or Guttural Nationalism presents the Pap’s conception of Indian nationhood, as explained in the following set of articles.
It must be noted that Hindustan is a nationalist, and not a religious or theocratic, concept. Integral Humanism: The BGP is proud of its commitment to the philosophy f Integral Humanism, as enunciated by Bandit Adenoidal Payday. We believe that development cannot be measured by economic indicators alone. Development must be holistic. It must fulfill the material and non-material needs of all individuals and promote a symbiotic relationship between the individual and society, in which the individual works for society, and society, in turn, cares for the individual.
Development must also keep in mind environmental concerns, local and community traditions, and the quality of life. The BGP believes that economic progress should not be at the cost of family aloes. The family constitutes the social unit of stability, welfare, and continuity of cultural traditions. Its importance can never be undermined. Integral Humanism teaches us that our nation too is a family and that India itself is a part of the larger human family. Cultural Nationalism: The BGP draws its inspiration from the history and civilization of India.
We believe that Indian nationhood stems from a deep cultural bonding of the people that overrides differences of caste, region, religion and language. We believe that Cultural Nationalism for which Indians, Birthday and Hindustan are synonyms is the basis of our national identity. Contrary to what its detractors say, and as the Supreme Court itself has decreed, Hindustan is not a religious or exclusivity concept. It is inclusive, integrative, and abhors any kind of discrimination against any section of the people of India on the basis of their faith.
It rejects the idea of a theocratic or denominational state. It accepts the multi-faith character and other diversities of India, considering them to be a source of strength and not weakness. It firmly upholds secularism, understood as Sara Pants Samba (treating all faiths with respect). 1 http://www. BGP. Org/index. PH?

INDIAN’S MIDDLE CLASS What Does the Future Hold? As Indian’s middle class grows in number and political clout, it has found a new hero in Guajarati chief minister, Neared Mood, who has emerged with a bold, eight-wing narrative in a country with a staunchly socialist past. Many Indians are still appalled over his alleged inaction or complicity in the 2002 Gujarat riots, which killed 1,000 people, most of them minority Muslims.
But Mr.. Mood’s supporters and efficient public relations machine have positioned him as the panacea to Indian’s slowing economic growth. The success of Mr.. Mood’s narrative among the urban middle class is not surprising if you look at global trends in developing nations like Turkey, Sir Lankan, Russia and China. In countries where materialism has been unleashed after cascades of self-effacement, people have told their politicians that they don’t really care about democracy, free speech or religious tolerance, as long as they help people get richer.
As Richer Sahara, Morgan Stanley head of emerging markets, writes in his book “Breakout Nations,” many developing world regimes are “subconsciously internalizing the lesson of China: a leader who gets the economy right, can get away with almost anything in politics. ” Some say Mr.. Mood is getting away with a pogrom, but he has grasped the global pattern well and positioned himself as a an who delivers, with the prosperous ends justifying his crude means.

He has used a kind of religious nationalism known as Hindustan as the wedge issue, a rallying call for his hardliner fan base. Further, he has won over the business community and the middle class with promises of smaller government, encouraging private and foreign capital and focusing on fast growth rates rather than government welfare spending. He has leveraged the disproportionate Edie attention to position himself for Indian’s leadership after the 2014 general elections. Members of Indian’s rising consumer class, who now blame big socialist governments of the past for thwarting their aspirations, have turned Mr..
Mood into a star on Twitter, where many of his more than 1. 5 million followers vocally drown out his critics. “Patriots are pleasantly surprised and traitors are running scared,” writes one Neared Mood fan on Twitter. “Guajarati Lion’s roars r heard with respect in India. NV let us down Sir, u r my Biggs hope 4 turn India of my dreams in reality,” writes another fan. Better than any other Indian politician, Mr.. Mood seems to have figured out that India has moved on from being a middle- aged, poor country to a young, lower-middle-income country that now believes it can get rich quick.
In the last decade, Indian’s annual per capita income has almost trebled from $530 in 2003 to nearly $1 ,600 today. The average Indian is now 25 and lower middle class. The people in this group are young and poor enough that their income can grow at a fast rate, but also rich and confident enough to consume, make some small investments and aspire to break into the real middle class. They are already connected to middle class dreams through their television and mobile phone, and want more.
If India follows the trends of other developing nations, this hyper-materialistic streak is set to continue until per capita income reaches global middle class levels, when hunger for growth is replaced by a desire for social security and complacence. Until then, Mr.. Mood’s narrative of growth at any cost is likely to be the dominant political theme in lower-middle-income India. Omit Bargain/The New York Timeshared Mood, left, talking to L. K. Divan, then deputy prime minister, inside the Seminarian temple in Mohammedan, Gujarat, on Swept. 25, 2002.
The governing Congress Party, which has historically been the centrist party, is struggling to grasp this narrative to appeal to Indian’s new middle-class voter. The center of Indian’s economy, and that of its middle class, has moved appreciably since the Congress’s 2004 successful election campaign focused on the “common man,” or the median voter. That voter in 2014 will be much richer and more confident than in 2004, and is unlikely to be satisfied with minimum-wage guarantees and free doles. But it will still not be easy for Mr.. Mood to translate the middle-class adulation into an outright win for his Barbarity Kanata Party.
This was proved again this month in Karakas State, where the party lost dismally in spite of Mr. Mood’s campaigning spree. Interestingly, the recent Gujarat winner could not swing Cornstalk’s urban middle-class seats for his party. Indian’s national elections are now a sum of many state elections, where pan-India leadership projections garner great media attention but little electoral gain. Mr.. Mood has been trying: he has been traveling around the country, speaking o fawning businesswomen and men about his “Gujarat model” of development, which he wants to replicate across India.
And when it comes to Mr.. Mood’s overwhelming popularity with Indian’s middle class, it’s more than the economy. In fact, there are striking similarities between the rise of Mr.. Mood and the rise of Boo Axial, the now-disgraced former Communist Party secretary in Cocooning, China. Both were ambitious regional satraps who aspired for the country’s top job. Both became darlings of the middle class and business community for their “can do” persona, but were labeled autocratic by critics.
Most interestingly, both played the nationalist card in wounded ancient civilizations whose elite now believe they are the future of global power. A member of a radical faction of the Red Guard in his youth, Mr.. Boo fashioned himself as a animations, out to revive traditional Communist morality. The Cocooning government would send out Mao quotes through text messages, and vast SUms of money were spent on organizing mass singings of Cultural Revolution-era songs. Mr.. Mood joined the Hindu nationalist Restrain Seamlessly Gangs in his teens, which shaped his early political philosophy.
He has refused to apologize for the anti-Muslim riots that happened under his watch and for which some of his party members have been convicted. He is fond of quoting and celebrating the life of Swami Vaccinated, a 19th-century Hindu seer of aristocratic descent. “Neared Mood’s politics represents the intersection of caste, class and educational privilege of the Indian middle class,” said Waggoner Hydra, a veteran political analyst who is now a member of the Am Admit Party, or the Common Man Party. “Indian nationalism was a dominant middleman’s construct, which has mound voice in Mr..
