WTO & th role of soverign nations

Recently the Nirobi round of talks has ended in World Trade OrganizationĀ  (WTO). The picture being painted is grim for developing worlds atleast. The talks are an attempt to talk-down on developing & under-developed world. What it is in actuality is a tool of the oligarchs or Multi-National Enterprises(MNE) who own a large capital world-wide to make the sovereign republics to act on the vihims of these oligarchs.

The heads of many a committees in WTO are associated with MNEs. They publish reports which best suits the interest of these MNEs & also lobby in their home countries(which are mainly western) to comply with their demands.They do not respect international treaties or the rules & regulations of international organizations.

This has turned the international relations, economies, businesses into dirty waters. For example, the signing of Trans-Pacific Partnership(TPP) & other such agreements. Unilateral sanctions on countries & declaration of war & invasion with considering sentiments of international community(After all, these wars happen for market-share & crude).

In the end, I would like to say that such un-dharmic attempts can only b suppressed by united spirit of people called governments. ForĀ  this governments need to function, in the same manner as a child has to educate(in literature, sports or any other form) himself(there is no better alternative).


India & the overall developement of society

India has traditionally been a peace loving country before, during & after british rule on this sub-continent. That does not mean has never used force against its external aggressors. The purpose of bringing this sentence in the beginning is to clear the reader of the prejudice. From about 5000 years ago when this sub-continent has seen the rise of ‘Harappan’ or ‘Indus valley’ civilization, this country has seen overall development.

The desire & urge for overall development among the people of this sub-continent is was so strong that they had artisans, craftsmen, technologists, traders, engineers, soldiers, merchants among them along with intellectuals(however, there is no solid proof for the same & it can only be analyzed).

During the later years upto the time of independence Indians(I am people of Indian sub-continent) were not eager for any kind of any majorĀ  war as they sincerely felt that military development could alter the social balance. For this they resisted many-a-invaders, but never let the society degrade. This is the beauty of this sub-continent.

But in the post-independence India this has taken the past glory has not been reflected in the governments that have ruled this sub-continent. Being socially, economically, technologically & militarily developed serves a greater purpose to this world as a whole.

For this the countries have to come out of their ego clashes.
