What is Rashtram
Rashtram School of Public Leadership produces ‘self-aware’ and ‘civilisationally assured’ public leaders who are nourished by Indic Knowledge traditions and systems of thought. The specific focus of the school is to prepare leaders in three domains – Academia, Politics, and Community.
Rashtram will also design and conduct executive education programs, engage in research to align institutions with Indic thought, foster an ecosystem of young leaders in India and abroad and strategically partner with organisations across the world.
India needs leaders in three domains to progress
- Academic Leaders, who can research on various policies and governance practises, and produce original thoughts and solutions to national problems
- Social Leaders, who can pilot these solutions on the ground in communities
- Political Leaders, who can scale-up these solutions and implement them on a national level. Coherence between these three sets of leadership is fundamental to India’s progress in the upcoming epoch, as well as in elevating global consciousness.
Our Vision - Reawakening Bhârat, elevating global consciousness
