National Competition for Young Managers, 6 July - 27 July 2018

Reimagining India: Contribution to make it Innovative, Inclusive, Invincible

India continues to evolve, as geopolitical, technological and trade conditions change. While the country has reacted reasonably well to the change, its leaders need to reframe its aspirations and expedite new capabilities. During the recent decades, India has moved from self-reliance to globalization and from seeking superpower protection to joining the league of the major powers. The country has moved to capability-based opportunities from legacy-based entitlements and from survival jugaad to disruptive technologies.

India is still a low-income country with pervasive poverty. It still has political, economic and technological exclusion. The country relies on foreign innovations for its technological progress and on imported arms for its security. Time has come for India to accomplish disruptive change and its leadership must deliver a country that is truly innovative, inclusive and invincible.

Reimagine India – prioritize the areas of immediate and urgent importance – Health, Educational and Skills, Infrastructure and Financial robustness and taking its rightful place in the world. Let us be Innovative to bring the benefits of technological advancements around the globe to the last person, to have a balanced and inclusive growth with India and Bharat marching ahead together and Invincible when it comes to competitiveness and quality of life.

  • What are steps or actions that your organization has taken to be Innovative – basically to device products or services keeping the realities of this country in mind?

  • What are the actions undertaken by your organization to contribute to make this country Invincible from the standpoint of competitiveness and improving quality of life?
