Bharatiya-origin professionals are occupying top posts in various multinational giants across the globe. They are successful in all the fields in the UK and the US. That is why President Obama recently said ‘I want more and more Indians to settle in America and help in its progress.’
Even after Independence the country’s traditional glory and genius was systematically consigned to the dustbin of secularism propounded by Nehru Gandhi family, with the result of that “India during these 60 years has failed to create intellectuals of global stature”, complains Shri Narayan Murti of Infosys, who made India a world leader in software. Yet due to their inherent genius, as reported by Time in issue dated May 8, 2015, Bharatiya-origin professionals are most successful in the UK. In America they are successful in all the fields of life. That is why President Obama had to say, ‘’I want more and more Indians to settle in America and help in its progress.’’
Bharatiya born Sunder Pichai living in the US was recently appointed CEO of the Google. Two of the world’s most valuables five companies are now led by Bharatiya people. Not only this, more than one dozen more Bharatiya IT genius head various wings of the Google. They also hold top posts in various other companies. It is a cause for celebration that dozens of Bharatiya have made it to the very top post of some of the world’s most valuable companies.
Today, Bharatiya entrepreneurs are everywhere like Laxmi Mittal (one of the world’s richest man), Mukesh Ambani (ranked fifth best CEO in world), Anil Agrawal of Vedant and Venkat Ramkrishnan who shared Noble Prize for chemistry with his colleague. Three Bharatiya Americans—Khurana, Chandra Shekhar and Ramkrishnan—have won Noble Prizes in Science.
Prasoon Joshi has been elevated as chairman of the McCann, the biggest agency network in global advertisement. Prez Obama has picked Vinita Gupta as head of the US Civil Rights Department, Harish Manwani, former top executive of Uniliver, has joined the investment major Blackstone as a global executive advisor. World famous investor Warram Buffett is contemplating of making Ajit Jain as his successor.
Here juniors also do not lag behind. Thirteen year old Granth Thakkar from Vapi (Gujarat) has been crowned as the world’s fastest mental calculator. Thirteen year old Shubham Banerji of California, has launched a Company to develop low cost machine to print Braille. More than 25 names of such luminaries have recently appeared in The Time. The list is endless. This is pure Bharatiya Genius.
Bharat provides leaders of talent who are able to help solve the problems of the country where they are designated. Unfortunately, they do not get much respect in their own motherland Bharat. Industrialisation has been possible in Bharat because of the genius of entrepreneurship of our capable industrialists. Development in all sectors of Bharat was invented and generated by our agriculture experts, academicians, innovating scientists and doctors by their own individual capability. They are creating a resilient self-generating and self-sustaining economy in contrast to Government controlled economy of China, now in trouble. Such men and women gave Bharat a world class status in these spheres. But unfortunately they have been restricted through our wrong practices and corruption all these years.
After destruction in 700 years of slavery, when Bharat achieved freedom, then within a span of 50 years only, industrialists brought great industrial development, amazing the whole world. Great persons like Ashok, Vivekananda, Gandhi, Tagore, Ambedkar and Abdul Kalam took birth in Bharat.
Today when superpower countries are still under recession, our Bharatiya entrepreneurs are busy acquiring companies overseas. Their genius is second to none in the world. They are capable of making Bharat an economic superpower, solving the problems of poverty and unemployment provided they are granted full liberty and respect, as provided to their counterparts in America.
Today one third of Silicon Valley engineers are Bharatiya, Wall Street is replete with Bharatiya. They are rising fast in politics. Bharat’s women genius was on full and radiant display at the Obama’s White House banquet. Among the invitees were four Bharatiya women CEOs Chanda Kochher of ICICI, Pepsicola’s Indra Nooyi, Bicon’s Kiran Mazumdar and Apollo Hospital’s Preetha Reddy.
Hence Rabindra Nath Tagore said “India is destined to be the teacher of all lands.’’ Swami Vivekananda said “India in future will be the centre of knowledge for the whole world.’’
Maxmullar said, “If I were asked under what sky the human mind has reached its zenith and solved some of the greatest problems of life, I will point out to India’’. Hence in future sky will be the limit for progress of Bharat.
All this is due to the self-restraint Atma Sanyam of Gita and family values of Ramayana taught to Bharatiya from their childhood, which unfortunately is being neglected, today. We should remember that if our next generation forgets our culture and heritage, our source of genius will dry up. This is the main concern of the organisations like the RSS. Bharatiya philosophy believes “the whole world is one family,” which ensures peace and cooperation from all sides. Our ancient Rishis have authored 36 books of great importance on science. They have also made about 25 discoveries which modern scientists falsely claim as their own. Fortunately, today Modi’s vision brings hope of all round resurgence in the destiny of the nation, though it will take some time to amend all the horrible wrong done to the country earlier.
