ennessee is in a most colorful mood, fall colors at their gorgeous best. Just got here from Michigan after a record-breaking Inner Engineering program in Detroit. Detroit – that has been the pioneering car-making city – has been on bad times, responded phenomenally to the offer of the Inner Engineering program. Detroit volunteers did an impeccable job in organizing a Mega event.
For the first time, I am flying as pilot-in-command and made brisk trips to Atlanta and Indianapolis and a long-haul to Detroit and back. Not just that, I am flying a turbine-powered helicopter for the first time. Been an experience of great value in my endeavor to walk the sky.
Two highly-rated business schools, MIT in Boston and Ross in Michigan, received us very warmly with great enthusiasm and appreciation. When I see these institutions where some serious education is imparted to young men and women, this is the most important task that India has to fulfill – creating great educational institutions that will gear our people to be able to perform and compete in any part of the world and create great enterprises that will drive the economic future of India. A large mass of people can move from impoverished existence to more humane conditions of living.
We, as a generation, have this great possibility that we can address all human issues of nourishment, health, education and wellbeing. The needed technology, resource and competence are there. Just needs people who care and some straight-forward leadership.
Hope we will do justice to this great responsibility and privilege.
