What is National Growth?

Growth of individual character only can be considered as National growth,every other growth in the absence of character-growth is only bloating.

Are there not enough resources already to happily share among all the people of India?

Will there be enough resources any time for even one person's greed to accumulate and hoard?

What is the need to accumulate resources meant for others and show off?

Is it not the most harmful mental disease which harms the society the most?

If one person builds a house for 4500 crores when he already has a 1000 crore house,what is the example he is setting?

What is the message he is sending?

That everyone should aspire to build a billion dollar house?

Are there resources for such extravaganza on earth for 6 billion people,even for a million people?

What he considres as his personal property?

Ultimately he is only using the Nation's natural resources which are meant for building 4.5 lakh schools and 1 lakh hospitals.

If he depletes the resources for his show-off how can Nature create so much new resources for others?

It never happens and the whole of the country and the world have to suffer and pay the price for one man's madness!

Is not materialism a childish madness?

Only children are mad after toys.Grown-ups need not be.

Why should India follow the quality of life of America which only sanctifies quantity in life?

Can't American way of life and its civilisation be identified as in the childish phase of evolution?

Has not Indian civilisation gone through the Childish phase,Adult phase and reached the Wisdom phase long back,many millennia ago actually?

Should our ripe old civilisation which balances the spirit,emotion,mind and matter hanker after a silly civilisation which glorifies only matter because it is now only beginning to civilise?
