Book Review: Once Upon a Dharamyudh: Vibhor Tikiya



Once Upon A Dharamyudh by Vibhor Tikiya is an easy and simple tale of two Punjabi brothers setting up textile company in Bombay and trying to develop and carry on the production in opposition to all odds thrown by a small number of unruly employees, greedy politicians and so on and tells the account of Prakash, a youthful bloke, his mission in verve, his enthusiasm for it and the trip of an era.

The battle is fought for the survival of a spinning mill called Dharam, a dream organization for its founders and workers equally, who offer it their sweat and blood which prospers due to the fine expertise of its owners and pains of its workforce and the challenges they countenance gives immense management lessons on how to run a firm, as some principled plans are pooled.

Prakash, a deep-seated scholar equipped with contemporary traditions of functioning is trapped in the muddle of gratifying his father's last hope and give up his dream career to seize up the veil of conscientiousness at Dharam, a company that he sets on a course of growth, despite a lot of opposition to his methods caused by worker revolt against management and from his brother Uday who raises his voice against any unfairness, acquiring magnanimous proportions.

An extremely intense and candid storytelling through two generations of a business family and how the central character Prakash faces and conquers loss, damage, despair and power of the crooked system to at last arrive at the target of his ideas as he endures to face the inconveniences and gain knowledge of and put together an enterprise.

Since the company is not based on a contract but on a convention and that the convention is an agreement instrumental to the realization of the needs of men, the classic problem of obedience policy almost does not arise. Even in this respect, therefore, the author stands out from the contractual theory, as well as for an explanation of the right of resistance.

The centrality of the individual is not lost with his entry into an organization. It is indeed a necessary condition for the existence of man, but that is why it can not take on greater importance to man himself. From this was born the real emancipation of the individual in a horizon of meaning that can also provide for the utopia of overcoming the rule imposed by the implementation of individual projects within a changing social order.

In the track of the crisis and criticism of modern rationalism, they were tried different routes that gave impetus to other ways of reading, going to the places of production philosophical canonically considered secondary in the path marked by the large current rationalist. In these explorations, which it would be difficult to fit into a common concern, the rediscovery of the large development that modernity devoted to the theme of suffering is one of the most significant aspects of the new historical and philosophical approaches.

Currently, it is almost obvious the place occupied by passions in modern thought, as well as its relevance to understand the approaches epistemological, ethical and political rights; whether they are autonomous works as these attempts clashed again with critical rationalism, denouncing a relationship with the desire in terms of repression or administrative and which, in many cases, found in the original dimensions by a desire whose liberation would follow a new ethic and a new policy.

Just a straightforward narrative with a silky recounting there’s extremely modest individual being, bare minimum love and romance and it is further about entrepreneurship, the battles, deceitfulness, trade and politics, over and over again easier said than done to make a distinction.

All the characters are realistic and there are no explicit black and white characters here and are all unlike shades of grey be it Prakash, Uday, or the others, who are all convincing characters and there is a right guy undertaking the correct things often strained by the system to resort to incorrect means to accomplish the precise results and then there is a right guy undertaking immoral things while appearing to make himself come athwart as correct.

The book is, without doubt, an incredibly enthralling interpret with munificent smattering of verses from the Gita that forms the underpinning of a confrontation connecting two ideologies to a certain extent than two people with its straightforwardness and point of view of a factory owner makes it worth a read.
