Dear Respected Mr. Hariharan,
I greet you with warmth of my heart and congratulations on the idea, concept and leading initiative taken for evolving an Indian Institute for Global Governance. The ideology and greatly felt need of such an institute reflects your concern and pragmatic vision for man-making education, nation building leadership and responsive global society.
In your sharing of the above, as you have rightly pointed out, the imaginary beginning point of shaping IIGG is wonderful and great. When I could perceive the great ideology and social vision that you have envisioned for the country and for the young Indian society, I became emotional and tears flew-out my eyes.
I salute sir for the clarity you have on the procedure of establishing such an Institution. Not only in forming the governing body of great visionaries but also the curricula, courses, contents, value ridden methods, outreach training strategies and scope, responsibilities & future of the passing out graduates.
The philosophy, the Indian psychology, the spiritual ingrained personality development with cultural and historical intelligence; not to speak of embedded IT /ICT, Communication and English language dimensions.
I fall short of words while wishing the success and happiness [ananda] of undertaking such an initiative. I have great feeling that assistance will volunteer from both the within and the outside source; again not speak of divine help and direction.
You are blessed with resources, contacts, mindset. And last but not the least you are bound to meet with success.
With lots of love and regards...

Dear Sri Hariharasubramaniamji,
I do admire your concern about the progress of the country after wading through sufficient number of years in social service.
As I have mentioned to you, I hope I can react in streaks in various hues and colours which I have gone through in the last 70 years.
It gives me confidence to observe that people of your age with about 20 years of difference from my age are there to take care of the country. Wish you all success.
Hope this finds you and your family in good health and cheer.
With very best wishes and warm regards,

Dear Mr Hariharan
I had gone through your website on the proposed IIG. The discussion that we had in Chennai about a month back was insightful. I am unable to do justice to the idea in the few lines that I have written here.
The idea of IIG is a highly useful and timely one. While higher academic institutions turn out a number of managers and some leaders, we see that most of these people are transactional in what they do.
Building capacities that help in taking a larger view of interests of all stakeholders, preferring long-term strategic action over short-term tactical solutions, examining how personal/institutional interests can be aligned with greater good of the community and encouraging creative collaboration even among competing entities are the challenges facing governance today.
At a personal level, those in governance need a complete understanding their personal ethics and morals and their concept of equity, sensitivity to others and acceptance of diversity. Some of these are part of your thinking in curriculum development. The ideas that you have articulated seem to contain the seeds of turning competent people in to transformational leaders through a structured learning event - in and off classroom.
I particularly like the attention to practical action as part of the course through internships. The involvement of many thinkers in developing the idea ensures that the outcomes are tested in the light of long experience of achievers that you have assembled in to a think tank.
While the task is complex it is doable. If the idea is shaped in to a good institution and a well structured course, it has the potential of making a lasting contribution to different spheres of social and economic life. My best wishes are with you for the success of this ambitious - but necessary - venture.

I went through the web site and I read some of the contents.
I think the Vision, Mission and Values is the part of the web site that concentrates the thoughts behind your (and your partners') idea. I found the initiative interesting and very ambitious and I really wish it can be successful because this is exactly what all the countries around the world need in order to become a better place to live in.
India in this context needs to bridge a bigger gap and must cultivate capable and honest leaders with deep roots in the country's traditions and simultaneously with a stronger international connections and vision. The way politicians behave today is far away from you are trying to achieve, so the path won't be an easy one but you and the advisors have a lot of experience and apparently good connections to make it happen!
I wish you all the best and good luck!

M S Pillai | Sep 22, 2015
He is the Founder Director of SCMLD, Pune. India (Sadhana Centre for Management & Leadership Development) (SCMLD).
This institute happened due to the initiative of his former students of SCMHRD and SIBM. Perhaps this is the only institute
in the history which was created by former students of a teacher, for the teacher to continue the work which touched their
lives positively. In 1993 he conceptualized and established SCMHRD (Symbiosis Centre for Management & Human Resource
Development) for Symbiosis, on offering the opportunity to create a brand new institute free from restrictions (license raj)
by Dr. S.B. Mujumdar, the visionary and President of the Symbiosis Society. SCMHRD was started with 32 students in 1993
and in 2004 when Prof. Pillai left the Symbiosis group, SCMHRD had more than 20,000 applicants although it had no approval
or recognition from and affiliation to any government, statutory authorities or university. Prior to that he was the lead
faculty at SIBM. (Symbiosis Institute of Business Management). There he made the then MPM programme (Masters in Personnel
Management) as the third best in Human Resource Management after XLRI and TISS. In the year 2000 or so he headed SIBM and
SCMHRD at the same time for a while till SIBM found a new Director.
He has been instrumental in facilitating almost 10,000 of the youth of the country find their path to prosperity and well being. Set up three campuses for Symbiosis. Built SCMHRD from concept (1993) and nurtured it upto (2004) as a unique institution of value based leadership. Established SCMLD ( Sadhana ) for ordinary students who were / are not competitive enough to be in elite institutions and converted 1600 plus such students as corporate executives/ entrepreneurs. Now he is in the process of complete restructuring of SCMLD - the Sadhana of re-inventing Sadhana the institution. It is being changed to an institution for developing women.
