India is at an inflection point. Since independence, we've put in the hard yards. We've established the world's largest democracy. We've created global businesses. We've bred visionaries who've shaped economies, ideologies, and institutions. We've established a soft power that makes the world look at us with admiration. And with 90% of our population being under 60 years of age, we're entering a phase of rapid economic growth.

Building a new India will require passion, long-term commitment and, most importantly, a pool of public policy professionals formally trained in evidence-based policy making, implementation and leadership – which is precisely what we, at Kautilya School of Public Policy, aim to do.
