About Us

A New Ideology

The Ideology that the Relevant Indian subscribes to is one that is independent of any overarching principles that are far too idealistic and is therefore a more contemporary idea for contemporary India inspired by the works of Dr. Shashi Tharoor.

To understand this Blueprint for Positive Progress, follow us regularly as we delineate the working of each principle and its mechanism.

Excellence and Professionalism 

Inspired by my Mentor and AIPC Chairman, Dr. Shashi Tharoor, the core idea of the Tharoorian school of thought works on 3 broad principles: Pluralism, Liberalism and Soft Power. While these core principles seek to Revive the ideologies on which the foundation of India has stood for centuries, we are here to also reclaim what is ours in terms of values, principles and ideologies and Re-build India on the principles of harmony and brotherhood that are slowly eroding in some parts of India.

Why this Project Matters to Us

It's easy to sit on the fringes of a politically driven, emotionally sensitive society, calculating what would pass off as politically correct only to sit as silent spectators intermittently resorting to social media to vent our frustrations. But there is more to India; a more positive and inspiring story that awaits our participation. What matters today is for YOU, ME, US to join hands if we want to see the land we belong to free from bigotry, hatred and divisive forces. The time has come for the thinking, level-headed Indian to become Relevant to the political, social and economic framework of the country.  

Disclaimer: The Relevant Indian is inspired by the works of Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Author, Diplomat and Member of Parliament for Thiruvanathapuram.  It is however, independent of him and neither seeks nor receives instructions or guidelines on any content published.

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.
