In the life of a nation, seventy-five years of independence is not too much time. The important thing to take into consideration is where we were and where we are today. In 1947 when India attained its independence, the average life expectancy of an Indian was twenty-eight years. Today it is seventy plus years. This is a phenomenal achievement, and this is what nation building means – that people are living longer and living better.
Isha Foundation Founder Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on Monday said India is the direction the world will move in the next decade.
In these 75 years as a nation, we have come a long way. Of course, we can always complain that we could have been better, but in 1947, when the British left us, the average life expectancy of an Indian was 28 years. Today it is over 70. Businesses have developed, infrastructure has come up, and science and technology have evolved. India is in space, going to Mars. Many things have happened. And above all, many qualified Indians across the world are managing some of the top businesses.
India is the direction that the world will move in the next decade, Isha Foundation founder and spiritual leader Sadhguru Jaggi on Monday said during 76th Independence Day celebrations in Coimbatore.
The Secretary-General has earlier shown her support for the global Save Soil movement when Sadhguru went on a crucial 100-day, 30,000 km solo motorcycle journey across 27 nations to bring urgent policy interventions in the world to save the dying soil.
Isha’s Save Soil movement reflects what the U.N. agencies and the Commonwealth are aspiring to do, Commonwealth Nations Secretary-General Patricia Scotland has said.
Human resource practitioners, entrepreneurs, chief experience officers and business leaders from across the country are attending the 5th edition of the programme, which started with an introductory video from Sadhguru, explaining the insight behind the programme.
Sixteen-year-old Sahil Jha is on a mission to save soil for the future generations. A native of Kolkata, Sahil started his journey on May 1 on his bicycle. He will travel 25,000 km through various States in one-and-a-half years to convey the message of protecting the soil.
"Inspiring to see “Save Soil” in action at an Agroforestry Farm in Pollachi #India,” tweeted Secretary General of the Commonwealth Nations The Rt Hon Patricia Scotland after her visit to the Tamil Nadu farm, which is one of the model farms for the Save Soil initiative, guided by Isha Agro Movement which started in 2007 and is pioneering a turn towards natural organic farming.
“To make your life pleasant within you is a very simple process. Unfortunately, a large segment of humanity is struggling and grappling with that. In this sense, India is the direction that the world will move in the next decade for sure,” said Sadhguru, Founder-Isha Foundation, during the 75-year anniversary celebrations of Indian Independence Day at Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore.
As wave of celebrations commemorating 75 years of India’s independence sweeps across the Nation, Sadhguru, Founder-Isha Foundation, has shared a soulful rendition of the National Anthem with the message: “A Mother who has stolen a billion hearts. My Beloved Bharat, may you be the beat of our hearts, and a song upon our lips and a beacon to the world.”
