India Today launched India Tomorrow, an initiative that features the biggest leaders sharing their vision and dreams for India Tomorrow. The India Today Group on its 41st anniversary has launched this initiative as a movement to build a better nation by engaging the current perspectives of the people and curating an ideal India. This initiative is a reflection of the spirit of the India Today Group towards constantly mobilizing powerful positive thoughts to shape an evermore admirable India.
Since its launch in 1975, the group has played an active role in empowering and enlightening the nation. On its 41stanniversary, we present a vision for the future. The films by the leaders for #IndiaTomorrow follow the five similarly themed short films by top directors in the country launched earlier this year. Imtiaz Ali, Pradeep Sarkar, Rohan Sippy, Hansal Mehta and Meghna Gulzar created their expression of India Tomorrow through short three minute films for the mobile generation.
The different directors brought their unique storytelling styles in these short mobile format films that touched a million hearts across mobile, digital and the television medium. All these films highlighted social issues like gender and caste and tried to sensitize societal perceptions.
Leaders and visionaries across Politics, Business, Arts, Sports and other spheres share their vision for a better India Tomorrow in these films.
Among the many leaders, Amitabh Bachchan shared his vision for #IndiaTomorrow where “India today is democratic and secular and that’s how it should remain and India Tomorrow should be Rape free”. While Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister, sees an “India freed from the curse of poverty, any form of oppression and injustice”.
Whereas for N.R. Narayana Murthy “Overcoming regional and ideological and religious barriers are necessary to leverage the power in India today for an India that we all want tomorrow” is how he views India Tomorrow. Along with veterans from these varied fields, Sri-Sri Ravi Shankar perceives India Tomorrow as “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – The world is one family, this thought within our youth can create wonders on our planet”.
People who have been an active part in progress of the nation by their work in varied fields speak about the matters of importance according to them i.e IndiaToday and how would they like to see #IndiaTomorrow.
