Narendra Modi government has made it clear that India is with Tibet despite of its fluctuating equations with Communist China. The participation of Union Minister Mahesh Sharma and BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav in an event to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s arrival in India is the correct message to China over the Tibetan issue.

Sharma and Madhav shared dais with the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, marking it as significant development in the backdrop of a recent circular suggesting political leaders and senior bureaucrats not to be a part of the Tibetan event.

The event was organized by Central Tibetan Administration at Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh.

Jews came, Parsees came and many others too landed in India seeking refuge. India has welcomed them with open arms and with an open heart

“His Holiness The Dalai Lama, together with his followers, has decided to host a Thank You India event on the eve of the 60th year of his exile into India. It is a natural gesture directed not at any leader or party, but to the age-old civilisational and cultural values of India, which truly deserve a thank you. Life of a refugee in exile is not easy,” Ram Madhav said at the function.

“India has always played an affectionate and endearing host to all those who chose its lands as temporary home and spiritual abode. Jews came, Parsees came and many others too landed in India seeking refuge. India has welcomed them with open arms and with an open heart,” he pointed out India’s culture of hosting the refugees.

Meanwhile, he made it clear that India’s bond with the Tibetans is least political and intensely religious-cultural. “For hundreds of years, we have exchanged trade; India offered spices and essential condiments to Tibet while our traders in return got precious metals and minerals.”

S Gurumurthy

Narendra Modi-government has appointed Swaminathan Gurumurthy and Satish Marathe as part-time directors on the board of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), indeed, a move that would please the Swadeshi group in Sangh Parivar.

Gurumurthy, a chartered accountant by profession, has been a staunch advocate of Swadeshi economics, known for supporting Narendra Modi’s crucial reforms including demonetization.

For him, the Swadeshi philosophy is contrary to the idea of protectionism

Gurumurthy is also the co-convenor of Swadeshi Jagaran Manch, an organisation affiliated to the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh), which has been promoting national self-reliance since its inception in 1991.

“Story of my appointment as director RBI. This is the first directorship ever. Never accepted any private or PSU directorship. Not even audit of PSUs or Pvt cos.  Wanted to be free to speak. But when pressure built up I am needed to do something in public interest I had to accept,” Gurumurthy tweeted.

One of the most influential figures in the Sangh, Gurumurthy has succeeded in projecting ‘Swadeshi’ ideology as an ideal platform for India to take her growth to next level.

For him, the Swadeshi philosophy is contrary to the idea of protectionism.

He belongs to the league of Hindutva idelogues who think that India has to bank on development models that will work for India instead of importing the economic ideas from the West.

Sathish Marathe, founder of Sahakar Bharati, has also got entry into the RBI board along with Gurumurthy.

Marathe has been associated with the cooperative movement in the country as the head of Sahakar Bharati, an organisation functioning under the aegis of the RSS.

The speed of fourth industrial revolution seems to be amazing. Changes are happening in an unprecedented manner, revolutionising every area of public life with great impact.

And the conventional mode of learning needs to be restructured in this manner. Education methodologies have to be shaped as per the standards of emerging technologies which include Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning.

The 21st century will be crafted by the ideals of fourth industrial revolution

The president of India, Ram Nath Kovind, got right about the change. While speaking at the seventh convocation of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad, on August 05, 2018, he emphasized this particular point. As he said India’s aspirations are no longer limited to the heavy industrial base that the nation built in the past.

The 21st century will be crafted by the ideals of fourth industrial revolution. Obviously, institutions like IITs have to remain relevant to the ecosystem of Industry 4.0.

“Colleges, universities and other higher institutions of learning are not degree factories. They are sources of innovation and incubators of technology-driven startups,” the president said at the convocation. He also pointed out the example of Silicon Valley in the US to promote a culture of innovation in the higher education space.

It needs to be noted that the resounding success of Silicon Valley as the global hub of entrepreneurship is the result of Stanford University’s unparalleled contribution to ignite the innovation spirit among young entrepreneurs.
