What we do?

  • We help people act with insight.
  • We help companies grow from the inside.
  • We help employees turn into thinkers.

We ignite thought

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.

When worldwide, universities are transitioning to become engines of economic growth, the self-created domestic disaster of India's education system going into a free-fall in terms of academic standards and the irrelevance of the education it provides has been India's biggest bottleneck in realizing its economic growth potential. In terms of knowledge creation, scientific discoveries, technological inventions, and even in imparting education at all levels, there has been a rapid decline in quality in the past two decades, leaving the country with an acute shortage of employable, university educated knowledge workers. Skill gaps are alarmingly high where higher-order skills are needed. Skill shortages in most industries continue to plague the growth of the Indian economy. Given these ground realities, rather than becoming the world's third largest economy by 2030, it is likely that India's economy will head towards a meltdown by then.

Rajendra K. Bera, Sunish Raj, Hiten Balsari
In this critique of the Planning Commission's draft Approach to the 12th Five Year Plan, the authors focus on two key aspects of the Indian economy - its rapidly declining education system, and its lack of a robust intellectual property system. If India is to maintain its economic growth these two systems must be overhauled thoroughly and quickly. We reason, barring a miracle, that India has no reasonable chance of becoming a country with the third largest GDP in the world in the coming two decades.
