Mohan Bhagwat, one of the most powerful persons in the country today, has said that his organisation RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) does not believe in the theory of exclusion. At a time when slogans like ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ and “RSS Mukt Bharat’ gain prominence, the statement made by RSS chief assumes great significance.

‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ and “RSS Mukt Bharat’ are political statements. RSS has nothing to do with it, and the Sangh always believes in the ideology of inclusion-Bhagwat made it clear during the book launching event of Dnaneshwar Mulay, the secretary of Ministry of external affairs.

RSS has been engaged in a process of nation building, and there’s no question about excluding someone in it. We need to include even those who oppose us-Mohan Bhagwat said.

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.
