What should India learn from Japan?

“India truly values the relationship with Japan and we look forward to further boosting our bilateral ties in a wide range of sectors,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted ahead of Shinzo Abe two-day India visit on 12th September.

Since the Modi led BJP government came into power five official tour of Prime Minister from both the country has been made. Modi Visited Japan twice in three years while Invited Japanese counterpart for three times. In three years of Modi regime, significant FDI inflows from Japan has been observed. The coordination and ties between both the country have been very smooth so far.

However, Buddhism playing major role and Modi has used this symbolically to influence ties. India and Japan trading plenty of things to improve their respective economies. Despite the fact India is exporting efficient technologies from Japan, it should also export values of democracy, liberty, and justice. The value of spending on the welfare of its own people.

Besides, claims of being one of the fastest growing economies, Prime Minister need to understand that one-third of hungry people live in his own nation. Bullet train might make true his dream of showing off to the world, but this in no way going to help 270 million people who are still below the poverty line. One in Nine Indians who sleep hungry can only make their night shelter under those tall bullet train bridge which Japan is going to build.

India may carry the pride of its spiritual history of Buddhism which brought scientific temperament in Asia region and also become one major factor in establishing Japanese civilization but unfortunately, India never came out of its oppressive caste system. The cruel oppression on caste identity is still prevalent in India.

The Modi government can export lot on education also on the course of tolerance and acceptance of diversity.

The Modi government wants to boost ties with Japan to make India more technological and infrastructural advanced. True! But it should also borrow a social sense of equitable society. The idea to free India from Brahaminical caste structure.
