Subject: [India-Redefined] An Idea worth Spreading

We have left governance to people who are not really our representative, policy to people who do not feel they are accountable to us, environment to NGOs who struggle without our support – the list can go on and on…We all talk of various problems in India at home, on facebook walls ,in our drawing rooms, offices, linkedin, etc.– but do little.Part of the reason is that we think that solving these are responsibility of the government, politicians, bureaucracy, economists or NGO's .Anyone but us.We are very fond of talking of our RIGHTS but shy away from even talking about our responsibilities as a citizen of the country. Many of us do not even bother to vote and then criticize the people who are elected on vote bank politics.This INERTIA is the root cause of many of our problems and we are partly to be blamed.So came the idea of INDIA REDEFINED (– A movement to create responsible and empowered citizens by bringing about "Behavioral Change". It is only when we do our duties we shall be empowered to demand our rights. It is by this change in behavior that we can unlock people's potential to be empowered citizens.This will redefine how we think and act as an Indian. …..and that is what INDIA Redefined is about.So, what is the Vision of INDIA Redefined? It is simply – CREATING A HAPPY INDIAAnd how can we create a Happy India?Most of the ordinary people want to do something for the country, they just don't know how. The idea is to mobilize these masses and bring them together.How does INDIA Redefined do it?By giving a structure to this… 'Desire to do Something'.By creating an opportunity for them, to achieve small successes in doing something for the society… Something within his resources and available time– a simple successful activity, that would not only be beneficial at a larger scale but also provide the motivation to strive for bigger changes. Developing this behavioral change across Indians of all strata, INDIA Redefined plans to tackle problems, leveraging the power of individual.It is a citizen's empowerment movement - a platform for ordinary citizens by ordinary citizens – each fulfilling his own ISR - Individual Social Responsibility. What makes this movement unique or even different?Well, there are many wonderful organizations, NGO, Charities which do a lot of wonderful work - But it never seems to be enough. Most of them work within a context or for a specific cause, that the overall positive effect ….. is lost in the gaps. One of the biggest reasons is that we have not tapped efficiently into the potential of the individual. INDIA Redefined is a platform for people from different, different social class, having different outlooks and opinions to come together and work towards redefining India.That is why INDIA Redefined's vision is created by an amalgamation of different visions that ultimately leads to a HAPPY INDIA.It is important to understand that we are not affiliated with a single political party or motive. But do not hesitate to work with any and every political party, business houses or NGO for the right cause.By bringing drops of people together on a common platform INDIA Redefined creates an ocean – Ocean strong enough to make government, politicians, public servants not only accountable but also make each Indian an Awakened Citizen… So where is INDIA Redefined today? In one year time the membership has already reached more than a lakh. This shows that there are people out there who want to 'do something'…Make a difference. All they need is the platform. The idea has not only got support of people but also some– it was adjudged "The Best Humanitarian Initiative" in December 2009 In this long journey of redefining India, we have taken only a few baby steps But then again, a journey of thousand miles begins with a single step…This idea…. Idea of a movement that is trying to tackle most, if not all, social issues and help citizens become empowered by the means of behavioral change, asks you for only one thing – DONATION. Not of MONEY. But of TIME. JOIN India Redefined.( )
