Description

The Hindustan Times Leadership Initiative is an important intellectual landmark in the capital. Every year, the country’s most respected newspaper gathers together key figures from India and the world to discuss pressing concerns as well as to look at areas of political and economic cooperation.




The theme for the leadership Initiative for 2004 was India and the World: A Blueprint for Partnership and Growth. Held in New Delhi in November, speakers at the initiative included prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, United Progressive alliance Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, former British Prime Minister John Major, former US Secretary of State Dr Henry Kissinger and Sri Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga.



Over two days the speakers and delegates deliberated on ways to build bridges of economic prosperity and political peace that would benefit not only the South Asia region but the world of large.



This volume is a compilation of their speeches, along with the questions and answers that followed. A collection that brings together reflections of some of the finest minds of our times.



One of India’s most eminent media groups, the Hindustan Times Group includes Delhi’s largest selling English daily, the Hindustan, and an online paper hindustantimes.com. The flagship paper, the Hindustan Times was launched in 1924 to lend voice to India’s freedom movement. Today, the paper is printed from eight locations and continues to highlight the concerns and aspirations of contemporary Indians.



Stanford University graduate NAMITA BHANDARE is a senior journalist and works for the Hindustan times.



REVIEWS



The defining feature of the twenty-first century is not that it will be marked by a clash of civilizations, but that it will be shaped by the confluence of civilizations.
-Dr Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India 2005



The remarkable resilence of our democracy, gives us the voice that is heard and respected throughout the world. -Sonila Gandhi Chairperson, United Progressive Alliance, 2005



The issue of unilateralism against multilateralism arises or should arise, basically only in emergency situations-when a country feels that its vital national interests are threatened and it cannot achieve consenus.
-Dr Henry Kissinger, Former Secretary of State, USA
