We all talk of various problems in
We have left governance to people who are not really our representative, policy to people who do not feel they are accountable to us, and we have left all the other problems like slums, environment etc to NGOs who struggle without Citizen's support – the list can go on and on…
We are very fond of talking of our RIGHTS but shy away from even talking about our responsibilities as a citizen of the country. Many of us do not even bother to vote and then criticize the people who are elected on vote bank politics.This INERTIA is the root cause of many of our problems and we are partly to be blamed.
So came the idea of
So, what is the Vision of INDIA Redefined? It is simply – CREATING A HAPPY INDIA. And how can we create a Happy India?
Most of the ordinary people want to do something for the country, they just don't know how. The idea is to mobilize these masses and bring them together. How does INDIA Redefined do it? By giving a structure to this 'Desire to do Something'. By creating an opportunity for them, to achieve small successes in doing something for the society… Something within his resources and available time – a simple successful activity, that would not only be beneficial at a larger scale but also provide the motivation to strive for bigger changes.
Developing this behavioral change across Indians of all strata, INDIA Redefined plans to tackle problems, leveraging the power of individual. It is a citizen’s empowerment movement – a platform for ordinary citizens by ordinary citizens – each fulfilling his own ISR – Individual Social Responsibility.
What makes this movement unique or even different?
Well, there are many wonderful organizations, NGO, Charities which do a lot of
wonderful work – But it never seems to be enough. Most of them work within a
context or for a specific cause, that the overall positive effect
….. is lost in the gaps. One of the biggest reasons is
that we have not tapped efficiently into the potential of the individual. INDIA
Redefined is a platform for people from different, different social class,
having different outlooks and opinions to come together and work towards
That is why INDIA Redefined’s vision is created by an amalgamation of different visions that ultimately leads to a HAPPY INDIA. It is important to understand that we are not affiliated with a single political party or motive. But do not hesitate to work with any and every political party, business houses or NGO for the right cause. By bringing drops of people together on a common platform INDIA Redefined creates an ocean – Ocean strong enough to make government, politicians, public servants not only accountable but also make each Indian an Awakened Citizen…
So where is INDIA Redefined today? In one year
time the membership has already reached more than a lakh.
This shows that there are people out there who want to 'do something'…Make a
difference. All they need is the platform. The idea has not only got support of
people but also some– it was adjudged “The Best Humanitarian Initiative” in
December 2009 In this long journey of redefining
This idea…. Idea of a movement that is trying to tackle most, if not all, social issues and help citizens become empowered by the means of behavioral change, asks you for only one thing – DONATION. Not of MONEY. But of TIME.
