I reiterate this example again and again for intuitive minds to envision Nation driving factors..
1) Imagine Rashtra as an organism. For example, Bharat is a human species (as her geographical shape resembles to human body). Each organism has her own way of working. Humans live life different than dogs or dolphins.
2) Imagine States as organs of organism. Each organ has specific way of working. A defined goal to serve the body.
3) Imagine individual cells as citizens. They too have defined goal to serve the body as per their skills and inclination.
So, American model cannot work for Bharat. Bharatiya model cannot work for China. Yes, we may learn from each other but absolute copy-paste won’t work. Dog cannot transform into human. Human cannot become dolphin.
So when we talk about Nation driving factors. We must empower individual and from this bottom up approach, Nation should be run. Between individual and Nation, each macro identity i.e. taluka, district, state – act as per local organic environment. Everyone with single goal – To serve the Nation.
