NewsVoir | 23 Jul, 2015
YES BANK has launched the YES Culture ‘Idea of India’ series, which will bring together scholars, thinkers and leaders under one roof to provide fresh perspectives on the idea of a modern day India. YES Institute believes that a diversity of thought on this topic is core to defining the culture of modern India so as to strengthen the country’s domestic and foreign policy.

H.E. Lt. General A.K. Singh, Lt. Governor of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands & Puducherry graced the convening as the Chief Guest; while Shri Tarun Vijay, member of Rajya Sabha, was the Guest of Honor. Mr. Anant Nath, Editor, The Caravan and Mr. Aman Nath, Chairman, Neemrana Hotels also spoke at the event.

Mr. Rana Kapoor, MD & CEO, YES BANK and Chief Mentor, YES Institute, said, “Banks are the building blocks of any society. YES BANK is proud to be a ‘Made in India’ bank. As a bank, it is our privileged duty to recognize and nourish the right resources in our country. The aim of the YES CULTURE Idea of India Series is to bring together distinguished individuals who have been working tirelessly towards the building India. We want to talk about significant Indian projects that require the attention of the world, and truly complement the Idea of India.”

According to UNESCO, we are at the dawn of the knowledge civilization, where we are constantly challenged to develop innovative and creative solutions to problems we couldn’t comprehend earlier. The answers to most modern challenges may lie in the practices we followed in our past and contemporizing them for greater effect and relevance. Therefore reviving our culture by going to its roots has become a strategic endeavor for the Institute.

Speaking at the event, H.E. Lt. General A.K. Singh, Lt. Governor of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands & Puducherry said “Youth is India’s strength and we need to provide them opportunities to leverage the potential and demographic dividend.” He also delved into the important role the Indian Army plays in the ‘Idea of India’; and gave relevant insights into the need to uplift tribals in the country. Shri Tarun Vijay, member of Rajya Sabha, said “India is unique, let us build a great India that is reassuring to its neighbours, with a noble virtuous power; that is my Idea for India.”

“We at YES Institute are proud to present our third convening, The YES CULTURE: Idea of India series. Great ideas come from great conversations. We want to bring out the Idea of India through conversations with some of the best minds in the country. We will see an emergence of new and creative ideas through the talks among our diverse speakers and select audience”, said Ms. Preeti Sinha, Senior President & Global Convenor, YES Institute.

This series will recognize and document the work and ideas of distinguished individuals who have worked tirelessly towards the preservation of Indian culture. These perspectives and ideas will be compiled in the form of a compendium and shared with key stakeholders in India’s cultural and policy development, adding to the discourse of India’s developmental and cultural trajectory.

About YES Institute

YES Institute has been established by YES BANK as a private sector global think tank, to channel private sector capital towards India’s development, with a strong focus on India’s manufacturing potential. The institute believes that India’s economic growth must adopt a low carbon pathway, leapfrogging to a scenario of unique and resource-efficient high technology manufacturing, sustainable agriculture and services and also that India’s glorious past and rich culture that is anchored in arts, crafts, frugal innovation and diversity must be leveraged to define the country’s growth trajectory along a knowledge driven pathway.

YES Institute’s approach on taking these themes forward is to encourage innovation, skills development and convene public and private sector multi-stakeholder engagement. The institute aims to partner with other leading think tanks as well to strengthen its approach and in essence to merge intellectual silos. Therefore, the YES Institute has sharpened its lens on the core topics of Urbanization, Social innovation, Green Economies and Culture.
