Capitalism and Communism (for India)

Yesterday a very good phrase occurred to my mind "Fairy Tales of Capitalism and Horror Storied from Communism". In relation to that....

Post 91 changes have transformed the vision of policy makers and executors. We as a nation are looking at prosperity and growth from another perspective and I, some times doubt about  that being an imported vision. I am not content with the 'kind' of growth that is happening and kind of people those leading it. But I was even not content with pre 91 days and the growth then.

So I have been asking myself  what do I want and what is that I think is the best for this nation. Obviously it is not the communism (-as it is) as (personally I think) the fundamental notion of individuals  being more productive and forward looking than the collectives (as opposed to individual) is correct and realistic. So is it Capitalism? Surely another 'no' here too. Individuals are important and should be awarded differently but can not be treated and favored for too long, which I think capitalism does a lot.

We being a nation divided into different social structures; wealth and power being centered to very few, can't afford to adopt capitalism. Yes mixed economy is answer, but then the ratio of capitalists and communist approaches is a factor to debate on.

Many say we are a mixed economy but I still think we have been moving to capitalism slowly. The poors being not able to visualize the move and not able to raise their voice are quite. The only hope is new world capitalists being not the believers of 'suck it all greed is good capitalism' and that they believe in enterprises for the mankind. That can happen only when those lower strata of this society understand this new world and the new capitalism for mankind as in fairy tales and some what similar to what communism expects from the societies.
