Think Big! Start Small! – India : Challenges or Opportunities?

– Almost 88% of Indian Economy is unorganized
– The companies, big or small, that we want to work for constitute only 12% of the economy
– Over 70% of Indian population is non-urban and reasonable chunk is well-off
– Majority is still looking for basic amenities and services
– In 2009, The number of work Visas issued to foreigners to work in India is more than number of Visas Indians applied for, to work abroad!!
– Over 30,000 Korean children are studying in Indian Schools under South Korean Government’s Focused program –> to conquer the 88% of the economy!!

So what are the implications?

– India is a vast nation with immense possibilities
– High potential to organize the unorganized
– The world is heading to India to take advantage of this vast potential
– Mukesh Ambani recently said, “There will be over a dozen companies as big as Reliance in 2025, many of those are yet to start their entrepreneurial journey!”; “India will create 20million jobs every year”;

Indian Universities do not cater to a couple of million, where will the rest come from? Watch this youtube video…

– Indian economy has grown leaps and bounds in the last two decades due to a great deal of entrepreneurial activity in IT/ITES sectors. The next two decades will see such huge activities in a range of small and medium enterprises, organizing the unorganized.
– The real opportunity with the statistics that we have, is in the space of entrepreneurship and nowhere. Are you game for it?

Watch more videos on these entrepreneurial endeavours in the unorganized spaces at IWSBINDIA channel on YOUTUBE. Wah India Wah!!

Think Big! Start Small! Watch out for my next tour of India on Entrepreneurship this December!!

Children Children Everywhere….

Children Children Everywhere...

Children Children Everywhere...

Children Children Everywhere…
Hardly anyone to care !

One can see them in hoards on the roads,
winding through the traffic at the signals,
touching or knocking at you,
begging to have a note or two,
young girls carrying another young ones,
telling all the stories that they only can,
refusing to take bananas or biscuits,
insisting only on you dishing out cash,
Leaving me wondering, who are those,
that are really controlling these young wonders !!

Young, yet smart !

Young, yet smart !

Children Children Everywhere…
Hardly anyone to care,

Oblivious to what is happening around them,
Pappu, pinky, Lallu, ….gudiya,
are in their own world of joy and merriment,
happy playing, teasing, caring and sharing; or
getting ready for their world of survival,
quarreling, pulling, fisting and bruising,
with the elders out to gather a fair squire meal every day,
these promising jewels are left to fend themselves all the way,
in the squalid surroundings of the juggis and jhopris,
that are far cry from the basic needs;

Ingenuity and promise

Ingenuity and promise

Children Children Everywhere…
Hardly anyone to care,

Only you have to give a little bit more time,
to see what they are upto, even in such a grime;
watch the flurry of the activities chintu will get into,
when the water tank arrives at his colony,
the first one to climb on the top of the tank,
to insert the hundred conduits that downloads water; or
Pappu manning that street corner chai-ka-dukaan,
when the lala is gone to his makaan;
ingenuity everywhere, waiting to be cared,
nurtured and blossomed;

Kids entertaining on the busy roads

Kids entertaining on the busy roads

Children Children Everywhere…
Hardly anyone to care,

what am I doing, running running all the time,
not even knowing which direction and where,
Can I pause a moment and spare a little,
to think what value could I be of.
Yes, I can make a difference to people around,
and to myself too… in the true sense,
If Only I emerge out of my world of
I, me, Myself !

A small step, but a big leap !

A small step, but a big leap !

Children Children Everywhere…

Let us help him to be a learner,
stoke her curiosity and ingenuity…
instill a few humane values that can
make the child a better citizen of tomorrow
