Abstract:: The policy that the king adopts to run the state is politics.According to Aristotle’s Politics that
“The state is the highest form of community and aims at the highest good.” According to Kautilya, the
author of the book Arthashastra, the meaning of state policy or politics is diplomacy. According to
Babasaheb Dr. Ambedkar, one of the architects of modern India and the architect of the Constitution of
India, Political power is the Supreme power. He asked for the capture of political temples (Powers). He
added that political power is like that the master key by which it is possible to open all closed windows
and doors. In the Indian subcontinent, it can be observed that those who have been involved in politics or
are still there have always become wealthy, healthy and powerful. They don’t have any economic
shortages. It has been found that those who are from the lower strata of the society or the lower castes
and the female class are relatively less inclined to do politics and their economic misery is also high. Dr.
Ambedkar of Maharashtra, a member of the so-called lower caste, understood very well how much it is
necessary for people from the lower castes to come into politics. Similarly, Jogendra Nath Mondal of
Barishal (“in the ten years from 1937 to 1947, he was the undisputed leader of the Namasudras”) and
Guruchand Thakur of Orakandi, two Namasudra community figures of undivided Bengal, were also able
to realize this. However, not the political issue of Jogendra Nath Mandal, the main purpose and topic of
this research paper of mine today is Historical Review on the Political Philosophy or Thought of
Guruchand Thakur which is discussed and thoroughly analyzed below.
