Yogakshema: The Indian Model of Welfare State

M.M. Sankhdher (Author)
Synopsis The Welfare state is perhaps the most constructive innovation of modern times, open to continuous revision and keeps alive the spirit of reform by which is was originally prompted. It has been conveniently used to cover a complex of socio-economic-political changes, synonymous with 'freedom from want' 'social' 'security', social justice', 'national insurance', 'equality', 'social' and 'public', services', 'full employment', 'abolition of poverty', and the like. Early classics and philosophical wisdom of ancient India provide us with enormous literature to formulate de novo Indian political theory, on the one hand and a rich concept of the welfare state, on the other. Kautilya over reached the modern concept that Yogakshema aims at an all-round development, material as well as spiritual, of the society as well of the individual. It ensured freedom, happiness, prosperity and full fledged development of human personality. Yogakshema demanded a higher moral consciousness both at the elites' and common peoples' levels. Yogakshema has all the ingredients of a modern welfare state. A new spiritual consciousness should inform the widespread material concerns in a manner that the essential liberty of man is secure in a system of obsessive democracy. The present book may be recommended to a very wide range of readers, not only those with a specialist in political science, but all who are concerned as citizens with the social conscience of the modern world.
