In the demise of the old' Kerala Model of Development', it is time for the new Kerala development model and strategies based on the solar power, water, land and knowledge under Public-Private Participation for Mega Projects with international funding, expertise and technology. Within five years, Kerala can be transformed as the True God's Own Land'. The proposed New Kerala Model will be useful for the international community and the students of developmental studies.

  2. 2. EUROPEAN UNION RESEARCH ON THE FUTURE INTERNET • Some of the researchers from the European Union, especially Finland, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain and Portugal who are engaged in the European Union funded projects on the Future Internet, have found my works on Knowmatics, Cybernetics of Knowledge, Theories of Knowledge and Knowledge Banks useful and contacted me. • They have also brought my attention on some of the successful Public-Private Participation Projects in the European Union in harnessing the Solar Energy, Water Purification System and Waste Management. In stead of some solar panels put on house roof and producing electricity in a very small scale, they have developed very big solar energy projects to produce energy on a massive scale. • For the last thirty years, I have been conducting research on the nature, structure, flow, production, delivery and consumption of Knowledge besides the technology for knowledge processing, though I am basically an economist. I formulated two theories of knowledge consumption and production, propounded Knowmatics – Cybernetics of Knowledge and proposed Knowledge Banks for augmenting the accessibility, consumption and production of knowledge and thereby knowledge intensification in all social production processes. Since the publication of my work on Knowmatics in 2011 by the World Universities Forum, the higher education wing of the World Economic Forum, the world is getting realized the strategic importance of Knowmatics.
  3. 3. THE FALL AND DECLINE OF THE ‘KERALA MODEL OF DEVELOPMENT’ • During 70s and 80s, the ‘Kerala Model of Development’ was hailed as a great miracle. Since 90s, it met with a fall and decline with depletion of farm lands, increasing water pollution, acute shortage of pure drinking water, frequent power failure and mounting garbage not only in cities but even in remote villages coupled with declining farm products, obsolete education and deteriorating public healthcare.
  4. 4. KERALA MEDIA AND CHANNEL CULTURE • Till the early 70s, country toddy shops, barbershops and tea shops in Kerala served as the centers for gossips and heated political or social discussions. Now competing TV channels have taken up the role of the old country tea or toddy or barber shops in gossips and heated political debates and spreading the news of crimes or scams that too in a mediocre way. • These channels are a clear indication of the declining intellectual caliber, educational standards, political maturity and moral values of the people of Kerala. Pseudo intellectuals and mediocre public figures dominate these channels with their ugly and poisonous words and mannerism. It is time for the media in Kerala to adopt a mature and socially responsible role.
  5. 5. FOOLS RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD • The famous quotation of Alexander Pope “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” is very much true in the case of Kerala politics, business, industry, culture and religion • Every issue in Kerala is capable of turning into a scam or controversy and a matter of heated media debates and political or legal battle so as to deviate people from socially productive activities and engage them unproductively. • While reputed firms or people with integrity, character and expertise in Kerala fear to tread, criminals and mediocre rush in politics, ‘solar energy’, ‘teak plantation’, ‘goat farming’ or ‘real estate’ to cheat people in terms of millions with attractive investment offers. • People in Kerala can easily be cheated with the lavish offers of easy money and unreasonable profits, for their aspiration for high standard of living beyond their means. • The latest scam is the solar panel scam engineered by a group of hard core criminals, even bluffing the former Marxist Party lead left government and the present Congress Party lead right Government, re-establishing the low or mediocre intellectual calibre and poor practical political wisdom of these leaders. As a result, their political debates or visions or strategies do not rise above the level of elementary school dropouts.
  6. 6. KERALA IS HEADING TO SOCIO-ECONOMIC CATESTROPHE • Though Kerala is endowed with gifted youth with best brains and talents, natural beauty, fertile land and frequent rain over six to eight months, heavy investment for education, it is heading towards impending crisis for the poor governance coupled with corruptions, controversy-loving and problem-making political leadership, irrelevant education system, short-sighted and disintegrated developmental strategy, frequent power crisis and above all inefficient waste or garbage disposal and high level water pollution affecting the health of the people. • The prevailing hopelessness and pessimism drive many youth towards crime, suicide, alcoholism and even religious terrorism. An economic or social catastrophe is inevitable for Kerala, though it has a great developmental potentialities. Kerala needs urgent measures and integrated socio-economic development strategies and even international collaborations to make the life of over 35 million people better.
  7. 7. THIRTY FIVE MILLION PEOPLE QUESTION • Kerala needs a realistic and integrated development strategy taking into account the inability of the government to mobilize resources for development. Who ever comes into power, either the left or the right, the role of the government is limited to just running the system with some minor adjustments for the resource shortage. Lack of capital, poor infrastructure, frequent power failure and non-availability of land and water for industrial or agriculture purposes do not encourage private entrepreneurs to emerge and flourish. • To save the lives of 35 million people, the only option for Kerala is introducing integrated Projects with Public-Private Participation and mobilizing international support and expertise in tapping the Solar Energy on a massive scale, introducing the water purification system and eliminating water pollution, high-tech garbage or waste management system, optimal land utilization for the development of agriculture, non- polluting industry and urban development, modernizing the education system, developing knowledge industries for the optimal development and utilization of brain power and knowledge resources.
  8. 8. PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTICIPATION • Recently, the European Union has successfully developed the technology for the massive utilization of solar power and to provide electricity to millions of people and introduced the latest water purification system on a massive scale besides effective waste or garbage management. • The Government of Kerala must come forward to introduce Mega Public- Private Participation (PPP) Projects on solar energy, water purification, waste management, farm development, educational reforms and knowledge industries with the financial support and technology of the European Union and other international agencies. People will be ready to invest in terms of billions, if well worked out PPP Projects are introduced. • The political leaderships must be ready to realize the aspiration of the people and writing on the wall and thereby dedicate and commit themselves for such an integrated development strategy rather than following the scam, controversy and corruption oriented political manipulations. The media must also adopt a bit more responsible and pro-people and pro-development approaches, in stead of involving in negativism, controversies and mediocre political debates.
  9. 9. FUNDS AND EXPERTISE • If the leaders and the people of Kerala are committed for the cause of the New Integrated Development Strategy, international funding, expertise and technology will flow to Kerala in terms of several billions. Non-resident Keralites with money and expertise will be ready to rebuild Kerala. • Within five years we can rebuild Kerala with clean environment, pure and perennial drinking water supply, uninterrupted power supply, high quality infrastructure, most modern education system, well developed farm lands and poison-free vegetables, fruits and diary and other farm products and above all highly sophisticated Knowledge Industries to engage every educated person in Kerala with high income.
  10. 10. MEGA PPP PROJECTS • Kerala can successfully and profitably launch two or three mega solar energy projects to meet its entire power needs; five to ten mega water purification and supply projects based on sea, lake and river waters; a chain of the most modern waste and garbage management projects, a series of infrastructure projects, most modern education system comparable to Finland, scientific land utilization projects and the New Generation Knowledge Industry Project covering the entire Kerala house holds. These projects must be under Public-Private Participation. We can mobilize capital, entrepreneurships, technology and expertise besides international support for these projects for the Integrated Development of Kerala so as to eliminate poverty, pollution, religious terrorism and alcoholism.
  11. 11. MAKE THE SHY AND TIMID ANGLES COURAGEOUS • Kerala has several well established business and industrial firms, like V-Guard Industries, Anna Groups and etc. Keralites in other parts of India have established successful enterprises such as Joythi Laboratories. There are so many Keralities who are the captains of multi-million dollar business or industrial enterprises in other countries like Lulu or Shoba Group . • There are so many rich families in Kerala having millions of dollars worth investable capital. But they are shy and timid to make use of their wealth and expertise for the integrated development of Kerala for the lack of favorable conditions and high level corruption of the politicians and bureaucrats coupled with jealous and angry political leaders, religious leaders and trade union leaders who are the beneficiaries of the crisis and poverty of Kerala. • It is a historical necessity to emerge a new breed of political, religious, cultural, industrial, business ,media and trade union leadership in Kerala for the Integrated Development of Kerala. In the coming election, both the Congress Party lead UDF and Marxist Party lead LDF besides the BJP have no other option but to adopt the Integrated Development Strategy for a New Kerala Model and implement mega projects for Solar Energy, Water Purification, Waste and Garbage Management, Infrastructure Development, Educational Reform, Knowledge Industries and above all Scientific and Optimal Land Utilization.
  12. 12. AN HUMBLE PLEA • This is a humble plea put forward for the consideration of all political parties and their leaders, all religions and communities and above all media and channel people in Kerala for safeguarding the interest of 35 million people in Kerala. • We have to mobilize funds and expertise or technologies for the integrated development of Kerala. Otherwise, we are doing an unpardonable crime against 35 million people and the generations to come. • Leaders and Politicians or Governments may come and go, but the people will remain forever. Without bothering the people, especially the young, nobody can enter the Heaven or Paradise whatever maybe one’s faith and religious practices. • Let the people enjoy at least some of the pleasures of Heaven or Paradise while they are alive and thereby make Kerala God’s Own Land for over 35 million people.
