Development and the importance of ‘One Rupee’
After the publication of a theoretical article on the theory of youth and interdependence in social development, I was requested to write a practical article. I would like to highlight some of the important relationship between development and the value of One rupee in the long run.
I heard that it would be appropriate to follow the example of Bill Gates and his son regarding money. One day, Bill Gates and his son went to a restaurant. They ate, and when they were leaving, Bill Gate’s son paid the waiter 100 dolor as tips for the waiter. But Bill Gates paid tips only 1 dolor. Someone asked Bill Gates during his departure, why did you pay only 1 dolor tips when your son paid 100 dolor tips to the waiter? Bill Gates replied, “Sir, my son is the son of a Billionaire whereas I am the son of a woodcutter. I know the value of a rupee.”
While linking development and rupees. In this context, the word ‘Development’ is a profound word in itself. The word development refers to totality. Development addresses consciousness, civilization, knowledge, science, technology, evolution, modernity and postmodernism. In the development today, money has always been stood as a means and sometimes a whole solution by human beings. Generally, money is a means to an end. In relevant to this context, a novel written in Greek called ‘Jorvathe’ Greek became very famous at one time. That novel supposed that currency designated the biggest thing in that century. Anyone who has this tool can do anything. After this novel confused the whole people, Gautam Buddha was looked at. He left the kingdom and went to the forest and he became a great man. Became a representation of super consciousness man within this earth. Even so, materially, the Buddha had to beg in the street. When this happens, the concept of the perfect human being needs to be materially enriched. At the same time, human beings must be able to transform themselves from the bottom of consciousness. The great philosopher ‘Osho-Rajnish’ presented the possibility of such development through his ‘Jorva Di Budda’.
Above mentioned statement was the issue of morality. Now let’s discuss the importance of one rupee. When there is not one to reach one hundred, there will ninety-nine. To reach a thousand is nine hundred and ninety-nine. To reach one Lakh, it is only nineteen thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine. Even if it is a crore, if there is not a rupee, it is considered as insufficient. It is not possible to reach a billion without reaching a billion, as the saying goes, the first step is to reach somewhere, so development is possible only on the day we understand the importance of this unit.
For the instance: the population of Nepal is 30 million. Out of this, by collecting shares of Rs. one rupee. Why can’t we do small projects by guaranteeing investment security? Isn’t it practical for a citizen who invests the same rupee to make 1000 rupees? When 30 million people invest up to Rs. 1,000 just think about how many projects of the country are not possible with this amount?Is it just for development that we put ourselves on the list of poor nations and always beg from developed countries?
Finally, it is important for the state to discourage the practice of begging in the name of development and promote such projects. If Nepal Central Bank and the official body of the state can work in a simple, easy and investment-friendly manner by ensuring this investment of all Nepalese through the bank, why development is not possible? What is needed is the development of thinking, technology and systems. In order to correct the distortions in the name of increasing economic liberalization, the need for technology, system, discretion and ethics is also needed in the process of overall development. One rupee of which can help in development.
