Livelihood

As a child progresses in life, after being healthy and educated, the next BIG question to answer is the livelihood. What to do, how to do, and how to become self-sustaining. If every individual is self-reliant, there wouldn’t be any trouble in the society. No beggars, no thieves, no police, no lawlessness, no disparity, no dependency. But to achieve this, we need to have laborious people in society, not the ones who need quick bucks. So we need to build a culture of earning the livelihood through legitimate means. But the efforts and the labor should be well paid off. The idea under this domain is to create ways and means for the people to earn and live without discrimination, without dependency and with dignity. In short, another Sanskrit verse, describes the means of this pillar of TGHF;

उद्यमेनहिसिध्यन्तिकार्याणिनमनोरथैः। नहिसुप्तस्यसिंहस्यप्रविशन्तिमुखेमृगाः।।

“It is by virtue of hard-work that the goals are achieved, even the deer don’t enter the King of Jungle’s jaws without efforts. So the Kings also needs to work hard to achieve targets”. Projects are for making people self-reliant at a place where they belong and thus avoiding the mass exodus to the cities where the crunch of basic living resources makes life miserable, leading to crimes and exploitation. It’s not about moving the opportunities to the people right where they are, leading to growth of society in totality, without pressure on any of our natural resources.

अनन्तशास्त्रं बहुलाश्च विद्या अल्पश्च कालो बहुविघ्नता च ।

यत्सारभूतं तदुपासनीयं हंसो यथा क्षीरमिवाम्बुमध्यात् ।।
