India is a country where we walk the talk about ‘Nanatwathil Ekathwam’ or ‘Unity in Diversity’. We are also on a variety of ways ( Vividha) to reach the Oneness (Ekathwam) – i.e. a better and beautiful world, which is universal, inclusive, compassionate and contented.
We have aligned all our solutions with Sustainable Development Goals, which is the universal buzz word now for creating a better world. We are also a member to United Nations Global Compact Network, the UN agency who is implementing this universal movement.
For many Alchemists are fools, for us they are explorers to ultimate. We love and excited to be in a community they don’t get disheartened in failures, stops on adversities but keep failing, born again, succeeding and making this world moving. They forget everything when they got distracted by a burning need or a problem. Dedicate themselves into it, sometimes a whole lifetime and coming out with a solution. The wheels, cars, medicines and everything new came from them. They got excited with ideas, blushes, sometimes fails to understand how this world treat them, but keep going. We have 100s of such persons with us, and believe they make this world a better place. We are excited to be amongst them. Anybody who belongs to this tribe can come and use the networks we have created.
We strongly believe a socio economic development issue can be addressed better with a grassroots level enterprise. Ration shops are set up as a grassroots level community entrepreneur led enterprise which supported the Govt to address the public distribution system. Akshaya Centres helped in addressing the Information and Communication Technologies and egovernance delivery. Kudumbashree was used for social upliftment of women. We have identified innovations which can be launched as grassroots level enterprises. For e.g. our innovative solutions can now address waste management, water preservation, agriculture productivity, sustainable energy and so on. This approach has multiplier effect as it creates platform for innovators to reach out to a development issue through a grassroots level entrepreneur.
Grama Swaraj to Home Swaraj
Mahatma Gandhiji talked about Grama Swaraj or the self sustained villages. We are going one more level deep and work for creating sustainable homes. With the bundle of technologies available with us, we can make a home sustainable by reaping their rain water, generating on power, making their vegetables, fruits, fish, egg, meat etc. They can manage their waste, clean their water, and live healthy than before. It’s a mission to create self sustained- inclusive homes. It is aligned with the Universal Basic Income mission too.
A Positive World Ahead
With increased awareness on the universe and the threats that is facing, world is moving towards a more positive space. We are witnessing technologies that can make rapid forests, trees that grow faster than before, production of food from a limited space, using of sun and wind for energy, invention of better public transportation systems, waste management and so on.... We are humbled that we are also part of that movement. 1000 of people around the world are on a relentless mission to find solutions, more social. This is a world movement and it was not in this scale and momentum before.
