India is respected as one of the fastest growing democracies in the world. Just recently, Indians celebrated 66 years of independence. There were inspirational speeches and flag hoisting on every corner. For once, radios and TV channels seemed to have taken the onus of carrying forth the spirit of patriotism by playing songs, showing documentaries, inspirational movies. Though there were some who treated it as a mere holiday and rushed to spend the day shopping and watching movies. As we look back, one thing is for sure that the country has grown by leaps and bounds. From the uncertain 40’s to the confident 90’s and the current economic climate, India has registered milestones. Indians have made their motherland proud by donning important roles in leading organizations across the world.
A few years ago when veteran Anna Hazzare took up the cause of corruption free society, the world thought that the Indian middle class had awakened. But, before the movement could have any major impact, it lost steam. This year India woke up to an independence that was stained with an increasing crime rate, atrocities like rape and domestic violence towards women and a lot more that needs to be corrected. The apathy of the people is even more shocking. The country woke up to the Robert Vadra land deal scam and there was no opposition or eyebrows raised.
Today, India has grown to a stature when no company can afford to neglect its market. We are growing and are also the cause for their growing revenues. Most of the major companies have their branches in India and are keen to carry forward the businesses. A clear indication of this is the growing revenues and the increasing opportunities for future managers. However, there are few things that we need to be cautious of. After all, this development doesn’t have to be incessant. Instead it has to be inclusive. The need of the hour is socially responsible managers who are able to take charge of the mantle and spearhead the country’s development plans.
Schools like SIIB, stress on such holistic managerial education through their curriculums that include management training sessions, projects and mandatory participation in socially relevant causes. This keeps the managers grounded and helps them develop a proactive approach towards taking socially responsible decisions.
As soon to be future managers, it is our responsibility to propagate the cause of inclusive development that leads to a better community and a happier society.
