  • Within doodlebean mam overall guidance, we lesser mortals like yo yo and IWRA et al will also be available here for knowledge sharing and learning. Our participation will depend on the zeal which newbies show here in writing answers and asking queries irrespective of our frequency of replying. We shall reply up to best of our time, knowledge and mind. ATB !

  • @doodlebean mam i had this query in mind as how to adress this question ... like a generalised answer(like how taxes, revenue security, justice, policies, good governance are important in present times and a government at present cant be imagined without these features).... or I should stick to the kautilya saptaranga theory in particular..
    we can write about the saptaranga theory as what administration was according to kautilya..about importance of

    1. king(prime minister),
      2.minister (group of ministers, council of ministers),
      3.territory (center n relation with states) ,
      4.fort(internal security)
      5.kosh (economy n finance)
      6 army
      7 allies (international relations etc)

    ps: i am a novice and was unable and confused about framing the answer with the little knowledge i had so i asked it here and and thats really so generous of u to respond to my query. 😊

    @doodlebean mam kripya aage bhi hamara margdarshan krte rhein

  • @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh wah wah sare ache log on this thread eksath.... keval iwra sir ki kami hai 😁

  • @prowess he shall fall in. Mandamus issue ho gyi h unko bhi 🙂

  • @prowess I will write this in 3 4 parts

    Intro - Kautilya in his seminal treatise Arthashastra mentions the statement to highlight importance of coordination and cooperation in various organs of the government and governance.

    Body- As per Kautilya

    1. Chariot of governance can't run without coordination and cooperation of multiple departments/actors/aspects of governance.

    2. King alone can't govern. He needs cooperation of CoM and other angas (total 7) for proper governance.

    3. If this is not done sooner or later governance will fail >> there will be Kopa/anger in public + Matsaya Nyay (anarchy and rule of force) >> the king will be at the ultimate receiving end.

    Relevance of these wisdom words of kautilya today -

    (Link here with all possible things in Current times like impact of emergency decision by Indira Gandhi without CoM will or Multi actor governance era of today or Success of flagship scheme depends on cooperation of silos working deptt integration or recent approach to tackle naxalism with cooperation of all rather than only one wheel ie center govt/army or GST council etc etc)

    Conclusion- Thus we can say that synchronized movement of all wheels alone can move chariot of governance, development and trust with not just better balance but also with better speed, in desirable direction and for reliable assured journey.
