The Tipping Point for Modern India

History scripted – Madison Square Garden, New York

There are definite points in a Nation’s history when an astounding and progressive change begins. A change that is non-trivial and mostly revolutionary.

There was adequate hint of this for India, when Narendra Modi took charge as the Prime Minister early 2014, and the hint seems like evidence after hearing Modi share his vision at Madison Square Garden, New York this Sunday, 28-Sep-2014.

What works?

Stunning focus on fundamental governance while maintaining the confidence and panache of a leader in the modern world, Modi weaved the pre-freedom struggle into the new age effort of nation building. Remarkable simplicity.

What’s refreshing?

It is great to see a Leader who thinks it is not because of him that dreams will become reality, but it is because of the potential of the people who will help him make it real. Enlisting each Indian to participate in this movement and evoking a sense of accountability and pride at the same time is a vision that is compelling.

From the farms of India to Mother Ganges, every aspect which is a priority to the Indian government today is one that will ignite passion in Indians for a much larger mission of building a great nation, India is destined to be.

Yes it is a long road ahead and a bigger yes… that the first few strides have been taken. India has arrived.

First day of Autumn

Celebrate change

A tiny wave of excitement as today marks the ‘First day of Autumn’. Also, it is an Equinox which means the day and night are almost exactly equal. The start of ‘Fall’.

Who moved my leaves

Autumn brings – an endearing transition to an earthly brown shade, cool gentle breeze ushering the winter to wade and fallen leaves on earth like a carpet you made. Nature in inspirational form.

Like trees in autumn, there is a cycle of change our personalities live through. If put to a time scale, an year is a good measure of when you pause and reflect on your own evolving identity.

If we take the analogy of trees in Fall, we as individuals could follow suite and shed a few leaves ourselves. It could be habits we want to break, attitudes we want to drop, activities we no longer enjoy or for some of us merely the weight we would like to shed, physical or otherwise!

Like trees cast aside leaves only to grow green with renewed life we should grow new habits that are of value, wear attitudes that help succeed and embrace ways of living that bring vitality to our existence and to those around.

So this autumn, I look to shed the burden of purposeless thought, enjoy the “now”, learn new skills and do more for someone who needs help the most.

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. – John Wooden

To the spirit of Equinox, we should continue to strive for a balance in our identities that generates strength and compassion. Everything else follows.

What thoughts come to your mind with autumn and equinox? Tell you story.
