Revisiting New Productive Communes: A foresight in realisation through the revival of India’s Ancient Cattle Based Economic Model

Background of Foresight

In the first half of 2013, The Rise of New Productive Communes: A Reality by the Year 2050, a foresight article, was shared on the Visioning 2050 . The New Productive Commune was presented as a self-sufficient, self-contained and sustainable model, that would cause no detriment to the environment, but rather help in mitigating the damage humanity has already caused upon it. It would be a highly profitable synergistic model, ensuring all needs of its inhabitants. The New Productive Commune would contribute significantly to the larger economy or the world. The article was later reproduced on the website of Asia’s leading Futurist movement, the India Future Society.

Foresight to Reality

In less than a year upon the subject first appearing on the Visioning 2050 blog, the foresight is being realised, where such New Productive Communes are on the verge of emerging. Though not quite to the extent, scale, impact or description as described in the first article on New Productive Communes that are foreseen to be in existence by 2050, the world is now very likely to see the commencement of the first commune towards that same direction and goal, before 2020.

The Man behind the Progress: Dr. Hitesh Jani

India’s renowned Ayurveda expert, Dr. Hitesh Jani has spent a lifetime conducting extensive research in and unlocking the ancient secrets of Ayurveda, to find cures or treatments for a host of ailments including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Asthma, Skin Diseases and Hyperlipidamia amongst others, as alternative means to Western medicine. Through the course of his career, he has found Bos Indicus, or India’s native cow species, to be an indispensable and invaluable natural source for much of humanity’s needed health solutions.

The Bos Indicus Secret

The milk from the Bos Indicus cow has specific characteristics, properties or qualities, that deter ailments from developing in human beings who consume it or its other by-products, such as ghee, butter, cheese, yoghurt and so on. The consumption enhances the human body’s resistance or natural immunity. It also improves the human body’s chances of recovery from various ailments, therefore forming a part of treatment in a cost-effective and non-toxic ways.

Apart from milk and it’s by-products, scientific evidence has been gathered, that from the excrements of the Bos Indicus, substances can be derived or produced to create disinfectants or medicinal drugs to treat a separate variety of human health ailments and diseases including cancer.

Building an Economy around the Bos Indicus

If the Bos Indicus is reared and harnessed, a whole medicinal and healthcare industry can be created around it. The waste from the Bos Indicus aids in growth of healthy food crops of any kind, supporting desirable agriculture, without contaminating the land or water systems. bos indicus

The Impediments to the Human Progress: A Cow Species under Threat

According to Dr. Jani’s work and statements, the Bos Indicus is a critical resource being wasted and rapidly lost to mankind. This loss is occurring, through mass slaughter of the Bos Indicus cows wherever they remain as well as due to cross-breeding that causes the genes bearing the qualities of immense health and medicinal value to us to diminish. The main human activity driving this particular cow species into extinction, is its slaughter for beef, hide and leather. As such we are killing our future generations, by denying them elixirs of life, along with the cows.


Dr. Jani and a group of entrepreneurial professionals are pooling their intellectual as well as social resources to engage both rural communities and business communities to revive the Cattle Based Economic model.

The principal idea is the adoption of village communities, encouraging them to rear and protect the Bos Indicus species, and make a living by collecting it’s milk, processing it, producing it’s various by-products and selling them. The cattle’s waste, will be used by the community, in crop plantation.

The cattle’s waste will also be harnessed, to produce an environmentally friendly bio-gas that would allow the community to generate it’s own electricity and combustion source for cooking, effectively taking it off the grid, which is fundamental for self-sufficiency. More importantly, the cattle’s waste will be processed for extracts to produce much needed and commercially viable medicinal or pharmaceutical products, from hand-wash liquids to disinfectants to drugs. This is where the promise of huge financial returns lies for major investors.

The Execution

Dr. Jani’s team has the knowledge, technology and methodology. They have social and community support. They can provide the management model, structure, concept, training, methodology and miscellaneous support for initiating and maintaining a Cattle Based Economic Commune. With funding, they will kick-start the first such commune, for acquiring the equipment, the Bos Indicus cattle in critical mass and to support the initial financial needs of the community that agrees to be part of such a commune project by giving up their existing livelihoods.
