They conceptualized and founded "Bharath Gyan" as an endeavour to
fill the void in creating a positive and open enquiring mind set about
the knowledge, practices and culture of ancient civilizations such as
the Indian civilization, with an objective of going to the root of social
problems and finding comprehensive solutions for the same.
The knowledge of the Indian civilization is available scattered in
various forms - books, manuscripts, oral tradition amongst scholars,
various art forms, customs and traditions of the land.
The current generation faces a barrier in reaching out to this knowledge
due to the limited access to such sources.
The ancient languages, the style of expression used and their approach
to the subjects, which differ from the present way of expression, pose
a challenge too.
With the help of

ABOUT THIS WORK AND ITS NEED
This work is a narration of the transformation of India into a New
India, which was set into motion from 2014.
It is about a New India that looks likely to emerge, changed in many
respects, from around 2020.
Many a time, work done by successive Governments, are seen in
disconnect from one another. Likewise, different steps taken by
different ministries of the same Government, are also seen in isolation.
The vision, the purpose and the impact, behind the various steps taken
by a Government are not known to the common man due to various
reasons such as:
• the size arid scope of the entire system being as big as the
Government and the country
• the lack of " socially minded" people I bodies without political
and commercial media agenda to speak about the work of a
Government in a wholesome manner to the common man
• the lack of steps to educate the people on the knowledge and
information needed to understand the rationale behind the
• the lack of efforts to rationally connect the decisions being
taken by the Government of the day, with the happenings of
• the larger past which is the legacy and at times, baggage of
the nation, that is actually carried by the Government of the
• the absence of steps to place a Government's action vis-a-vis
the ethos, character and assets of the nation, to enable people
to emotionally relate to the Government's policies and actions.
For, each step taken by the Government, affects mainly people
and their progeny in the short and long run and
This work looks at the schemes and programs launched by the Indian
Government of 2014, in the context of the progress of India. For, it is
context, which can help in gaining an understanding of anything in a
This work therefore includes where possible, the context for
understanding and knowledge for appreciating what has been taking
place in India since 2014.
It is a work aimed at using the Transforming Governance in India
from 2014, as a model for educating a common-man about.
• the fundamentals of Governance,
• the work of a progressive Government and
the larger issues that confront a Government,
using the present Indian Government, as a good example of a forward
looking, democratic Government in the present world and in the
present state that India is in.
Care, has hence been taken to avoid too much data, charts and
economical and technical terminologies in this work.
WHY FROM 2014?
India is fortunate in that, it has two layers that go to form the
A Bureaucratic Layer for administration
A Political Layer for policy making.
While it is the political layer, which gets a mandate from the people to
run the country for a maximum of 5 years at a go, the administrative
layer, more or less stays the same, to provide continuity to the various
tasks as per the established vision and policies of the nation.
Unless there is a strong override from the political layer, the
administrative layer can continue to keep the nation going with the
existing policies and system.
Policies and systems get formed / reformed / transformed only with
the initiative of the political layer, which in turn represents the people's
will and mandate.
Hence, major changes can happen in a nation like India
only when a nation gives a unanimous mandate and
that too, to a political layer which projects a clear vision of
where it would like to take the nation in the next few decades.
2014, was one such eventful year in India's history when both these
criteria happened to be met.
The rest is history in making.
WHY IN 2019?
In 2019, at the time of the 1st edition of this work, 5 years since the
time of the new leadership in India, history indeed seems to be in the
The political layer that moved into the Government, had stepped in
with a promise of transforming the Governance system itself, so that
the future decades of India, can run pretty much in a development
Starting 2014, the system of Governance has therefore been
undergoing a transformation at a scale and speed, the likes of which
are startling to all - the majority of the population who stand to benefit from the change as well as the few who will be losing their advantage from an earlier leaky system.
