Causes of the Crises

Causes of the Crises:

Though the malice is rampant, it is not difficult to identify the root causes of the crises. Mainly this has resulted due to neglect and erosion of ‘Human Values’ at all levels. Some people attribute it to colonization of Indian minds under foreign rule of over a thousand years, lack of nationalism, criminalization of politics, acculturation, vulgar and promiscuous advertisements and programs on TV, major shift in life style in which instead of imbibing good values of the West the bad ones are being adopted in the name of advancement. The stu­dy, based on 40 years of past re­search on nine mil­lion young adults, that ap­peared in the Jour­nal of Per­son­al­ity and So­cial Psy­chol­o­gy, pub­lished by the Amer­i­can Psy­cho­log­i­cal As­socia­t­ion, says “Young are becoming increasingly selfish, caring less and less about the en­vi­ron­ment, pol­i­tics, and the world around them in gen­er­al; even the idea of seek­ing a mean­ing­ful life is out of fash­ion.”

Urgent need is, therefore, strongly felt in all the circles of the society today for passing on uplifting values and practices. While values and conduct are learnt at different levels in the family, society and workplace, education plays a significant part in shaping the character of individuals and is perhaps the most effective factor for bring about a qualitative change in outlook and thinking.


Youth –The Turning point in human development:

Different traits are formed at different stages – broadly speaking eight, namely infant, toddler, child, adolescent, youth, adult, matured and elderly - in life of an individual. It all depends on age, mentors, exposure, training and influences. Youth bursting with energy, enthusiasm and dynamist is the stage for taking life challenges, deciding the direction and purpose of life.


Desiderates for becoming an Excellent Human

Life-histories of great persons show how at a matured age, coming from varied family and adolescence affects, powerful influences, education, challenges and pursuit of ideals turned ordinary persons into great personalities. From recent Indian history,Gautam Buddha, Mahabir swami, Dayanand Saraswati, Swami Vivekanand,, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Baal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpatrai, Bipin Chandra Paal, Subhash Chandra Bose, are shining few examples of the same.


When we talk of excellence as a human trait, we mean a person with strong commitment, high aspirations, well founded self esteem, trust in self, faith in capability, patience for success, firm in following fundamental values, confidence in the future and full enthusiasm necessary to take up tasks before him/her. 

The Need

Intellectuals and youth of this country are slowly getting bereft of Indian cultural values causing thereby negative feeling towards their country, culture and society. Due to this negative feeling, a great heritage of Eternal Wisdom has been shunned causing thereby adoption of adverse foreign influence which is destroying the very fabric of its society and country. Similarly in our country, copy-culture has taken place which is destroying the `originality' in its younger generation. In Today's education, issues related to foreign influence is neglecting the traditional Indian culture. Hence institute takes up those courses and curricula which fulfils the gap in today's education in helping the individual to become a better individual.
