Ideas India is an initiative of the fellows of the Kamalnayan Bajaj Fellowship of the Ananta Aspen Centre. It has been a time of growth, transformation and new vistas for the nation. Economic, political, social, religious, environmental, almost all factors are rapidly changing, perhaps faster than we can manage. India embraces both unconstrained hope and unimaginable fear. We need courage to grasp hope and face fear - the courage of fellowship in action. We gather at Ideas India to raise difficult questions, to ideate, to confide, to act and to do so in the community of the Aspen Dialogue.
The pandemic has plunged much of the world into a state of suspended paralysis. In the process, it has exposed the fault lines that separate ‘us’ from ’them’; the fault lines that inconvenience some and fatally harm others; the fault lines that leave our society bereft of the strength of our diversity; the fault lines that shrink the circles of our concern.
Our theme for this year is “How Big is your Circle?”. Join the Ananta-Aspen community as we challenge ourselves to redefine our circles and act.
