India is the world’s largest and most vigorous democracy. Today’s new economic balance of power has given the country a chance to reclaim much of its earlier glory when it was one of the world’s richest civilizations. In the current context, India’s fundamentally vital indicators reflect the country’s potential as an economic powerhouse. As Indians, we have proved ourselves in almost every sphere within and outside our country. We have all the ingredients of a resilient society, backed by strong societal support but not social security, a conservative economic system which is to an extent recession-proof but not transparent, and a great talent pool but with limited opportunities for nurturing those skills. What we lack is the right approach to policy making and the development of an ecosystem to harness our immense potential.
