What is public leadership?

Our vision of Public leadership is rooted in the civilisational ideals of seva and tyaga, and aimed at uniting the jnana, ichcha and kriya skati towards Nation building. We guide and incubate the journey of selfless individuals, who go on to lead various systems and institutions inspired by the spirit of dharma—devoted to the all-round prosperity of our country.

Jnana Shakti: Power of Knowledge

At every turn, thinkers produced ideas that animated the imagination of the people and created hospitable conditions for change. These ideas produce ‘Identity’ that give a sense of purpose and meaning to people – This is the process through which a random collection of a people, become a Nation. In today’s world, this mandate of producing good ideas is given to academia.

Icchha Shakti: Power of Will

Procedural justice is the vehicle that takes the ideas from the minds of a few to the hearts of many. It is this journey that confers legitimacy to the ideas and creates agency in people. Legitimizing right ideas through the creation of agency leads to ‘Stability’ – Guiding this journey and embedding nourishing ideas into the fabric of a Nation is the real job of Politics.

Kriya Shakti: Power of Action

‘Prosperity’ is a function of the energy of people channelized into productive avenues. The mandate for the state should be to create the conditions for Stability in which people can exercise the natural human genius for enterprise and creativity. The lifeblood of Ideas around Identity and Stability needs to flow through the veins of the civil society to create prosperity.
