In industrialization drive lobbies should think hard, say the truth

TRUTH is a much-vaunted term, and hardly anyone wants all of it in life. Despite that in the final analysis it is the only thing which really matters, where none of us can deceive others, or his or her own personal awareness.

Truth has two aspects, the inner truth that each of has the privilege to harbor, and it is mixed with opinion and emotion while its presence is unmitigated.

There is also a broader truth about surroundings, or society, where one can decide to say what he or she actually sees, or pretend that it is something else, close to what other people are likely to say too.

In a technical sense, truth is basically what has been scientifically tested and overly established, or at least corresponds with firm awareness grounded in experience.

Truth is something that doesn’t just show what is likeable or possible, but contains safeguards as to what is potentially unlikely to happen, on the basis of dynamics of what an individual or a class of individuals (which could be a company or state) wish to see it happens.

That is why truth has always to be tested by contrary views, opinion as no one has a monopoly of truth; narrow truism needs exposure to thrive.

The country at the moment needs all the truth it can muster to figure out the best way to reach an industrial economy, and what roadblocks are raised in the way we try to organize the present environment into an industrial ‘take off.’

Studies and theories contest in that area, and we are taking off on the basis of what we know best – the whole idea of five year plans and reviving industries which collapsed earlier.

It is possible those plans are feasible as there are reports that industries are being opened in many areas or being revived, but issues must be faced squarely.
