India is a young country with half of its population below the age of 25. India has a myriad of social problems of poverty, women empowerment, financial inclusion etc that inhibit country’s progress. The youth power can assume the avatar of social entrepreneurs, while employing the use innovative entrepreneurial techniques to solve these issues and foster wealth creation.

Nation Building is a multidimensional concept, and it involves the active participation of its citizens in various walks of life.

In their pursuit of personal goals, Indians are intensely competitive. Yet we lack consensus on a shared national essence and hence a dire need for psychological bond between citizen and nation. National identity is to a nation’s well-being what the immune system is to the body’s health.

Critics worry that national identity promotes fascism. While many civilisations have used identity for conquest, the idea of Indianness is driven by mutual respect. Indian philosophy is built on celebrating diversity — in trees, flowers, matter, human bodies, minds, languages and cultures, spiritualities and traditions — and does not see it as a problem to be dealt with.

Right from the discovery of ‘zero’ by Aryabhata to the use of flush toilets to other modern technologies, we come across several inventions and discoveries in India, which are accepted by everyone all across the globe, and for which we should be proud of.

Unfortunately, India is yet to achieve this kind of intellectual repositioning. It continues to be depicted through “caste, cows and curry” images all too often. Indian culture is frequently portrayed as being mystical in the sense of being irrational, and in lacking a sense of advancement in the material plane of society.

Ideally, India’s post-colonial governance system should have been founded on its own unique culture.
Ironically, even after seven decades of independence, the legacy of the British continues in almost all sectors of administration, judiciary, education, socio-economic governance, etiquettes and most important – a colonial mindset to approach in life, that still gives a glimpse of the British regime.

The net result of all this is that India is no longer a civilization in its own right. It no longer satisfies the criteria for a society to be a civilization. It is merely a nation-state, an emerging economy at best.
The 19th-century popularised the idea of the “nation state”. The 21st could be the century of the “civilisation state”. Make no mistake: a nation-state is several degrees of magnitude lesser than a civilization.

Join us to building a nation with the glory of its ancient and influential civilisational continuity for the benefit of mankind.

We organise a series of talks on heritage of India for moulding a national narrative based on its indigenous culture and civilisation for accentuating its prosperity and global positioning.
Some of the sessions we organised were: Decolonisation of Indian History, The Invincible Brahmaputra and Operation Red Lotus: Indian war for Independence
