Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Climb Every Wall / Cross Every Sea



Following is an extract from the Editorial in Times of India ( 20 April 2017 )

 Contrarian play: When others are building walls, India should build opportunity and growth


Walls seem to be going up all around the globe. US President Donald Trump is tightening the screws on guest worker visas such as H1-B, a move causing concern to the Indian IT industry.

 How should India respond to such walls ? Trade wars won’t serve its interests.

If India is to endure as the world’s fastest-growing large economy, it will not be on the back of protectionism or economic nationalism no matter how much they are trending globally today.

Instead our tryst with destiny depends on reforms, liberalisation, deregulation, becoming a better place to do business…….

India has to turn others’ walls into its opportunities.

It’s becoming tougher for Indians to work abroad. If that talent is looking to return here or stay on instead of emigrating, let’s not waste these human resources.

Let’s innovate, reform our markets, BUILD NEW BUSINESSES and GROW NEW COMPETENCIES, which will even incentivise overseas corporations and foreign workers to relocate here.
