The country is now observing his birth centenary year. And what could be the most opportune time to bring forth his philosophy of Integral Humanism in the public domain. Prof B Vijaykumar’s work on this subject is one such effort to enlighten the intelligentsia about his philosophy and thoughts.
Integral Humanism or “Ekatma Manav Darshan’ is in discussion again in the recent days. The philosophy was propounded by the late Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, a philosopher statesman–cum-politician who, as a Sangh Pracharak worked in the political field, built Bharatiya Jan Sangh as a viable alternative to the Congress party and put forth in nutshell his philosophy of ‘Integral Humanism’ for the posterity to debate, discuss, and venture into new dimensions and aspects of it for the welfare of all.
He became the president of Jan Sangh at its Calicut session in 1967 but unfortunately was found dead a few weeks later on February 11, 1968 at Mughalsarai station in most mysterious conditions. His death remains an unresolved mystery even today.
Prof B Vijaykumar has deeply studied the philosophy of Integral Humanism and presented his well-researched scholarly work for the readers.
The world has witnessed socialism and communism and capitalism for long. Boat the philosophies have treated the human being as a physical object and evolved systems to fulfill his physical needs and material aspirations. But the time has proved them incapable of fulfilling human aspirations and at the same time maintaining the ecological and environmental balance. On the contrary they are trying to impose their hegemony over the third world and developing countries.
With the failure of these both ideologies, it is now time to take a fresh look at the philosophy of Integral Humanism propounded by the late Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. This philosophy conceptualizes a practical approach to achieve peace and harmony within man and society. It offers an ideal system of governance called ‘Dharma Rajya’.
