43 to 44: Part 5

The past year has seen me make four short trips to the US. The single most important reason has been Atanu. The “think time” that we spend together helps me in working through the roadmap going forward. The only thing then left now is to make the time to ensure I can now start implementing all the things that we have been discussing. That will be the most important thing I do in the coming year.

As an entrepreneur, I have done many different things over a career spanning twenty years. It is a mixed record. I now have to use much of that entrepreneurial thinking in the “blue ocean” political landscape as we seek to build out the elements that lay out an alternate agenda and future before the Indian people.

This will require getting millions of people in India to change their minds. That will not be easy. And that is why I am excited. It is a hard problem, but one that is not intractable. Only when people’s minds change will India’s political and policy future change.

So, it is on to a new year, and a new chapter. I do not know how long this book is. What I do know is that, in the spirit of a true explorer, I am ready for the “mountains beyond mountains.”
