On 29th July, while addressing the business and investors community in Uttar Pradesh, PM Modi has said: “The current pace of our progress is a beginning for me” India’s fast-paced transformation is a matter of discussion around the world. The ‘New India’, ‘Transforming India’ and ‘Sankalp se Siddhi’, kind of phrases are now a part of the diplomatic jargons related to India. This is a major change. Sustaining this changing reality is the responsibility of India’s New Age Leadership.

Earlier for the young leaders in India, there were no concrete references/models available within the contemporary politics to follow which led them to pursue the traditionally successful path. But these replicas of previous generation leaders will not be able to drive India into a fast-changing dynamic global environment. The New Age Leadership of India needs to take some notes from our current leadership. The four years of transforming India are a bundle of knowledge on Leadership Spirit. Behind the success of every single initiative, there is a shining case study on leadership approach and philosophy.

During the last four years, we have achieved some of those milestones which were not even imagined before! Make in India, Make with India, indigenous defense manufacturing push, defense corridors, boost to defense startups and MSMEs, transformation of public sector procurement process, continuous reforms to improve EODB status, and a healthy competition among the states for EODB rankings, a successful implementation of GST, Digital India, national digital literacy mission, digital payment ecosystem, transformation of Indian Postal department, focus on doubling farmers income and reforms for transforming agriculture sector into a profitable enterprise, 100% electrification, distribution of guarantee free loans through Mudra, Standup India, Village-level entrepreneurs, Common Service Centres, Ujjwala yojana, housing for all, focus on the education of tribal youths, one of the biggest infrastructure push through Bharatmala and Sagarmala, Smart Cities, Smart villages, Skill India, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Yojana, Deendayal Upadhyaya Swaniyojan Yojana, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Unnat Krishi Shiksha Scheme, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Sanchar Kaushal Vikas Pratisthan Yojana, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya shramev jayate and the list goes on and on and on. India’s transformation from one of the ‘fragile five’ to the only ‘bright spot’ on the global economic landscape is a matter of discussion around the world.

When PM Modi initiated his vision, a number of people criticized him for thinking too big and setting goals too high! The search engine algorithms were full of negative and biased content about India. Many people used to believe that Digital India, Make in India, Startup India etc. are just flashy slogans and a part of his event management approach! And they were prepared to bomb PM Modi with questions like what you have done for the farmers? for women? for the poor? for backward? And for the minority? But now these questions are as irrelevant as their seekers!

India is a young country, 65% of our population is youth. The responsibility of New Age Leadership is huge; they have received a fertile ground for taking a quantum leap. To take this leap, this time, they need to learn from the approach of PM Modi. How PM Modi has turned every challenge into an opportunity, how he has surpassed the culture of negative politics with his constructive approach, how he always put ‘India First’ instead of politics and the way he makes the staircase with the stones that are thrown at him.

Our new age leadership needs to understand that they are the driving force of New India and ‘Hard work with Determination’ is the only path for them.
