IDEAS India is an initiative of the fellows of the India Leadership Initiative of the Ananta Aspen Centre. It has been a time of change, transformation and new vistas for the nation. Economic, political, social, religious, environmental, almost all factors are actively affecting the course of the country. India is living through one of its dynamic periods and the country is at cross roads. Therefore the need was felt to convene and coverage, to raise difficult questions, to ideate, to think and to do so in one of the most mastered techniques in the world- an Aspen Dialogue. The overall theme for this year is “Borders - Within and Around Us”.
