Dr Subhash Chandra advocates "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam"in maiden speech in Rajya Sabha

Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEE & Essel Group, who owns a conglomerate of companies having interest in diverse fields including media recently took his oath as Rajya Sabha MP.

Here is the full text of his maiden speech in Rajya Sabha:

Respected members of legislative assembly – India, family members and my well wishers. I’m humbled to be elected as a Rajya Sabha member from the state of Haryana. I thank each and every one of you for providing me with the motivation of starting this new journey in my life.

As an elected member and also as a citizen of the nation, it is my duty and responsibility to work towards eradicating the challenges faced by my fellow citizens, which restrict growth towards rising up and shining bright globally.

I take on the new given responsibility with a clear mindset of moving our nation towards the path of progress and with the sole objective of making public service the focal point of my work. It is time for the non-productive things like corruption and fraudulence to be wiped off completely from the nation. It is time to redefine the word politics for the nation.

Having established what I have to date, I am now giving substantial time towards the socio-economic well being of society. But I surely cannot do this alone, and so I need your support and participation. With this message, I appeal to everyone to rise up and be aware of your rights and responsibilities.

Let us together move this nation forward. I believe “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” which means the entire world is one family. And therefore we must work towards the betterment of the nation together. Our family needs us. Our nation needs us.

For Chandra, it has been a long journey to the corridors of power. Though he has established a business empire (encompassing media and entertainment, manufacturing, precious metals, infrastructure, real estate) which does billions of dollars of annual revenue, he believes the time has come for him to give back to India.

Our typical marketing budget is usually 10 per cent of the topline spend

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur. For example, <a href=http://www.exchange4media.com/company/news/amaz...

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
