Mother Earth is Terminally Ill: Is Circular Economy Enough?

Under the current model of consumption ‘take-make dispose’, energy, labor, and natural inputs are all termed as waste right after consumption of the product. The resources are finitely available and our demands are increasing exponentially. To conserve the natural resources, we need to vertically retain their value in the supply chain via innovations in technological, social, and business operations – A Circular Economy Model.

Unlocking Human Potential

1. The Project has studied the factors maximising human potential. The existing approach solely focuses on Education, Health and Skills (Human Capital Index, World Bank), which are pseudo-tangible but give a narrow view of human potential. Beyond these factors, a whole gamut of intangibles plays a crucial role in unlocking real human potential. This is the study of Real Intangibles leveraging human potential in the context of achievements and success, irrespective of the availability of material factors. These intangibles are expandable and can be managed, and should become part of the Human Development Ecosystem.

Fortune Tellers or Fortune Sellers

The project aims to scrutinise the predictions and suggestions made by consulting companies, etc., vis-à-vis the realities of the past few years. The report will assess the cost that the government and other institutions pay to implement the myopic and fancy recommendations. This report will debunk the false prophecies by the big consultancy companies with facts and numbers.

Real Cost of Natural Disasters

Based on the geo-climatic and socio-economic conditions, a few states in India are more vulnerable to specific natural disasters than others. Frequent natural disasters have resulted in human casualties and the loss of physical capital. Moreover, natural disasters adversely affect different sectors of the economy and livelihoods of millions of poor people in developing nations. During the Covid-19 pandemic, natural disasters also increased the government’s fiscal pressure through rehabilitation and relief distribution measures.

Civilisation by Design

A country’s contribution can never be measured in numbers or by the number of wars it has won, but rather by the impact it has left on the world over the centuries. One of the oldest civilizations in the world, India, is a mosaic of multicultural experiences. With a rich heritage and myriad attractions, the country covers an area of 3.28 million km2, extending from the snow-covered Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of the south. As the 7th largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which gives the country a distinct geographical entity. Being the second most populous country in the world, the country has contributed in numerous ways one could think of. The Project aims to throw light upon the country’s contribution to the world through ancient times and encompasses various dimensions.

Culture Policy for India: A Framework

India has a rich history and culture, but no “National Culture Policy” exists. India is an old, even prehistoric, civilization. Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro are living proof of this. Even though foreigners have ruled us for hundreds of years, we have a deep sense of culture, a way of thinking, and beliefs that will never change. Indian culture brings people, nations, and the whole world together. India has a culture full of peace and spirituality to share with the rest of the world. Culture is like the roots of a tree. If the roots are deep, storms cannot uproot the tree. Famous people from India with strong ideas and beliefs have a message for a changing world. Also, as digitalization spreads into every part of our lives, people will likely hear things that are not true. This changes the way people think and threatens democracies and societies as a whole. Countries worldwide dig deep into their pasts to learn more about their cultures and civilizations, so they can live in harmony with each other and be happy.

Caste Census & Its Consciousness

The research paper aims to delve into the historical evolution and socio-political implications of the caste census in India, tracing its journey from the colonial era’s first-ever census in 1881 to the most recent census in 2011.
