I had long wanted to tell trials and tribulations of Indians abroad and those who returned home that I registered the domain name ‘theglobalindian.com in 2000 when we were making a name for ourselves on the global stage.

For nearly 20 years the idea lay incubating found expression as Global Indian – A Hero’s journey during the lockdown a time which allowed me more time to pursue things that I value most. I thought it’s time for remind us to give back and find a greater purpose in our life and career.

The stories are meant to inspire those who aspire to go on a journey abroad, fight the odds, explore the world and discover themselves.

We like stories in which the hero goes on a journey, fights the odds, transforms himself or herself and then returns home – in our case to serve the community and country.

One of the sections I am particularly fond of is the Youth Section. Have you checked what our youth are pursuing? It will only make you proud – they are a lot so obsessed with the future – and why not?

The Global Indian is constantly changing and I would love to hear your comments, stories, ideas or any way you would like to contribute. This stage is meant for you.

Come, tell me what’s your Global Indian story?

It boils down to mindset, impact and giving back

How can I become a Global Indian? In answering that one question, you will find a purpose and meaning to your life and career. In understanding its significance lies the clarity of what you should do with your life.

Becoming a Global Indian is a hero’s journey who leaves the familiar, goes into the unknown, gets transformed by the experience, and returns home with something that would change his or her old world for the better.

Becoming a Global Indian is a process of discovering who you are and evolving to reach your full potential.

How Global Indian do you feel? Where do you stand in the spectrum of this consciousness? Do you feel Indian? Do you feel more loyal to your language, religion, or culture? Do you feel more loyal to your adopted home? Do you say I am humanity? What bothers you? Where you feel a sense of belonging comes from your own depth. That is your own identity and pride.

The real question is not about identity or loyalty, but where do you find your calling. Do you find it in serving the problems of India? Would you return to India?

What is essential to be a Global Indian is to have made a difference to India or their adopted homeland.

Even by being a good student or teacher on campus, a reliable team player in a company, an innovative entrepreneur, or friendly neighbor and community member you would have contributed to Brand India as its ambassador.

By bringing home ideas, networks, and capital that impact the quality and dignity of life, India would be a better place because of you. India is a land of opportunities that can make you. You can find your purpose here. It is in being compassionate to India’s challenges and finding solutions that matter that you will truly find yourself and your purpose.

If given a chance, What would you do for India?
In finding purpose, in striving to serve and impact those who need it most, you will become a Global Indian and a Global citizen.
