Reasons For the Lack of Development in India

O Learned and Devoted Servants of God,

[November 1, 2006] Financial Corruption in India: What is the reason for India not developing compared to Christian and Islamic countries? The basic reason is only corruption that always hinders the development of the country, which is based on the public works like construction of dams etc. If you see the construction of dam by Mr. Arthur Cotton on Godavari River, there is no sign of damage even after 100 years. But if you see the public constructions like roads and dams done by Indians, their life time sometimes is only a few days! Does this mean that Arthur Cotton was not as intelligent as Indians to do corruption in the project? The lack of corruption does not show the lack of intelligence in his case. It shows only his awareness of right spiritual knowledge as the back ground. Similarly, we don't see any type of corruption in Islamic countries. Why corruption is in its climax in India only? Does this mean that there is no spiritual knowledge in India? We say that such spiritual knowledge does not exist any where in the world as much as it exists in India. The reason for this may be attributed to the difference in these three religions. But the same God gave the same spiritual knowledge in all religions through different forms because only one God created the entire universe and there are no three Gods.

The concept in Christianity and Islam is that there is no rebirth. They say that this present human birth is the sole and final. After this birth the enquiry is done and the soul goes to either God or hell. The soul will remain with God or in the hell forever. You can easily imagine the fear that is created by this concept. Just for a few rupees and a temporary luxurious life on the earth, one cannot take such permanent risk. This spiritual foundation is the reason for the absence of corruption in these two religions to a very large extent. The administration of this world is Pravrutti and the field of God is Nivrutti. The basis of Pravrutti is Nivrutti and both are not different.
