The theory of Trusteeship – one which was promulgated by Gandhiji and the likes of Tata, Birla, Sarabhais and Lalbhai of Arvind Mills fame creates a culture that helps provide opportunities to the poorest of the poor. It is a realization by the corporates that there is a l0t beyond just earning money. And that lot constitutes social responsibilities too.
Decentralization by lending more power to the city or village bodies can also lead to a better infrastructure, more facilities for its people and less bending of the laws to favor the high and mighty. Delhi rocks because it is a city state and just imagine where could Mumbai be if it were provided with such an administrative structure.
