Till recently, domestic constrains imposed by the socio-economic imperatives faced by an emerging and developing nation, lack of economic or military superiority, and the preoccupation of the developed world with the cold war have restricted our ability to be an influential global player. Within these limitations, we have, by and large, managed to uphold our national interests without making many compromises.Today, the situation is completely different. An emerging economy, strong conventional forces and acknowledged nuclear capability and our ability to influence international affairs has been recognised by the world at large, and the major powers in particular.
Conceived by a diverse group of professionals including retired civil servants, service officers, businessmen and academia from all over India, the Foundation is an initiative to contribute in India's efforts to realise its aspirations of playing a meaningful and constructive role in regional and global affairs and promote international interdependence. The Foundation will strive to enhance the spirit of Indianness through its projects and explore measures to strengthen national resilience in its various facets .
