It is now established across the globe that India is the next growth engine of the world. The country has been growing steadily due to many of its industries, notably IT, Automobiles and Pharma, performing exceptionally well for many decades. These sectors have not only established India as the country of exceptional quality products and services but have driven India's tremendous growth story. It is time that we identify our other strengths given the diversity of our land and its rich cultural and art heritage and invest in them as the next drivers of growth for our country.

Choose one industry from the following and suggest from the manager’s perspective as to how you would bring changes into them to grow them exponentially and help making India a force to reckon with in that sector.


The plethora of options available in our country from old monuments to religious sites to varied natural features make India's tourism a sector wanting structured approach and right investments – both in terms of ideas and finance. Suggest a model which would bring India amongst the Top 10 nations in the world for the International tourists to visit.


The success of various Premier Leagues on the country have made sports an immensely endearing sector. IPL is one of the richest sports league in the world and BCCI perhaps the richest sporting body. The consistent growth of sports like soccer, hockey, kabaddi, badminton and boxing can be major reason to invest and professionalise these sectors which may lead to many business and hence employment opportunities. How can we strengthen the sports infrastructure in the country to make it one of the powerhouse of employment and growth and also make India excel at the world stage in sports.


Rich with art, culture, traditions and now a happening film industry, Indian entertainment software is being lapped up across the world. Indian movies are consistently breaking records at the box offices in countries like China and US. India's Culinary traditions are being embraced with a renewed interest. Suggest how India can capitalize on its rich heritage to emerge as the Entertainment capital of the world.


It is often said that technology is a great leveler. Today the developing countries can hope to do a catch up game with the western world on the back of remarkable strides that technology has made into through mobile and digital penetration in terms of mobile phones and internet. The common belief is that technology would bridge the gap for the next 6 billion people in the world and India story would serve as an example for them. What are the endemic problems of India and how can they be solved through the use of affordable technologies?


Infrastructure is an area which has been much maligned sector can potentially be a high-growth sector and can generate direct and indirect employment to millions of people given India's rapid urbanization and need for quality housing. The sector needs strategic orientation, fresh impetus and substantial amount of financial investment. Suggest ways in which India can have a robust and reliable reality sector which can take care of country’s massive need for housing both in the urban and the rural areas.
