The Relevant Indian A Note From Dr Shashi Tharoor | The Relevant Indian


"I am impressed by The Relevant Indian, the idea behind it and the urgent sense of compassion and commitment to the welfare of our nation that animates it. I am delighted that this initiative, run entirely by young people, keeps alive the spirit of openness, respect for diversity, emphasis on harmonious co-existence and acceptance of difference that have long characterised the best of India and are reflected in our immortal Constitution. The Relevant Indian confirms to me that the future of India is safe in the hands of our young fellow citizens."

I grew up with the lines of the song, 'iss desh ko rakkho mere bacchon sambhal ke' (keep this country safe, my

children). It's the youth who are always the future of every country and on you lies the responsibility of safeguarding our country's syncretic and cultural heritage. We've been doing it all these years and I pass the baton on to you.
