Nations are built by leaders who master their senses


What is Rashtram

Rashtram is a School of Public Leadership rooted in the ethos of Bharat i.e. India. Rashtram develops the future public leaders of India

A new paradigm in education

A creative leap in pedagogy

A winning strategy








Bharat was not borne out of a mere political or a social philosophy. Our imagination stems from a spiritual philosophy of 'integral unity' of life , conceived by the peerless rishis in their heightened states of consciousness - A possibility for the divine in the human is at the heart of our 'Identity'. The cultural, social and political design is an extension of this magificient vision of life as a coherent whole. Reinforcing this vision is the work of the gurus or intellectuals in a society.



The life enriching philosophy was never left in the abstract nor was it reserved for a few. The master ideas of the civilization were embedded into the hearts and minds of people through the due process of representation. This was seen as the job of the political leadership



The Indian civilization does not privilege the state over the community. It understands that every community is defined by their unique traditions that ought to respected. This culture of respect created the conditions for people to exercise their innate creativity and build prosperity.

A modern day Gurukul atmosphere where the mentors and students come together in a residency model.

A consecrated space that can foster intellectual curiosity and inspired action.


Rashtram School of Public Leadership is an institute to create future leaders. The journey that this young team embarked 5 years ago has been as humbling as it has been rewarding. Our path took us into the heart of Bharat and we got a glimpse of what our great sages mean, when they say ‘Bharat is Shakti’.

This intimacy with the people of Bharat ignited our minds and hearts with a deep sense of gratitude and inspires us to push ahead and not rest until we realize our dream of living up to the dream of our gurus.

With their monumental vision as the guiding light, we reflected deeply on the work we have done and where we want to head
