Speed Up India On Platforms and in Government

Speed Up India: On Platforms and in Government

Ten years ago, when then-prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi promised India bullet trains, he probably did not bargain for the system's resistance to high speed. The journey from an average speed of 60 kmph to a bullet speed of over 300 kmph would take longer than expected. It required an entirely new state-of-the-art infrastructure and a new mindset.

LiFE Lifestyle for Environment

  LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment)

Environmental sustainability refers to ecological balance, and for nearly two thousand years, humans have been carbonizing and degrading our planet, which has contributed to global climate change that is making existence on this planet worrisome.
