On India and world future. Take on Mankind

Dr. Rajeev thinks India does have a bright future. If it can get rid of its vices (e.g., corruption, lackadaisical attitude, stagnant educational system, etc.) and enforce the scientific thinking in its population, specifically young generation, then it can reclaim its glorious position in the world.

Dr. Rajeev is also very optimistic about the future of the world – despite the current uncertainty and chaotic scenarios all across the globe, he thinks the human spirit of “never-giving up” and ingenuity will prevail. Many exciting innovations in science and technology, when properly merged with arts and humanity, will lead for a much better tomorrow for the entire human-kind. In his words, “the problems that we are going to face (e.g., water and food shortage, climate change, super-bugs, etc.) are going to require a multi-pronged and cooperative approach for us to succeed. We all will really have to go back to the philosophy of ‘vasudhaiva kutumbakam’ (the concept that the whole world is my home) to be able to not only survive but to achieve success of unprecedented scales.”

Dr. Rajeev’s words of advice to fellow Indians and young generation: “We should never forget our roots and traditions.Any civilization that tries to only imitate others (perhaps as a fad or due to onslaught of the never ending marketing gimmicks!) is a rudderless ship! Do learn and imbibe good things (e.g., scientific thinking, discipline and cleanliness from the western world) from other cultures and try achieving a symbiosis of these new things with your own roots.”

He always remembers and is dedicated to the path shown to him byhis teacher and mentor Prof. Kulkarni:Athato Brahma Jijnasa – now is the time to inquire about the absolute/ ‘Here starts the quest of Truth’.
