Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!

Subject: The Value Of Indian Scriptures

We are no pundits. A long-time friend, Shri Ved Prakash Bhatia, has sent a copy of his recently published book, “Ethical Values And Spiritual Values In Indian Scriptures”. Although the value of Indian scriptures are generally known, and are often appreciated, first by foreign scholars. We felt we could attempt to bring forward to you some of the core values from the book.

Shri Bhatia has covered a wide field. He has touched upon the relationship between ethical values in modern day Business Management. Bhatia had, after retirement, studied business management and later taught the subject. He feels the Gita has the essence of the modern day Management Science.

He has covered the Vedas also the Bhagwad Gita. It is good to see he has covered the scriptures in the South, such as, Thirukkaral by Thirukkara. Many in the North are not aware that Indian scriptures and scholars in Vedas and Upanishad are more in number in the South. As a matter of fact, we have a feeling that the South is holding the true Indian culture more than in the North.

Bhatia contends, “The present alarming erosion of human values in management practices to ethical dilemmas could prove a threatening factor for all round development of a nation.”

Although many savants have echoed the of the “niti” shasrta have echoed many of the ethical values and instructions in their own celebrated works. Bhatia, quite rightly, referred to the “niti” shastra of Kautilya, San Sutzu of India, that has made him stand out as the most significant historical figure of all times.

Before concluding Bhata says, “There are many gems of ethical values in the Vedas and Upanishads”

So, Bhatia says, “May I conclude with the hope that all of us shall endeavor to cultivate the ethical values in order to succeed in leading a spiritual and contended life?”

Well, Friends we do hope many amongst us would follow Bhatia’s wish.

Well done Bhatia! We wish more strength to your elbows.
