From Digital Mindset to Digital Transformation to New India

Digital Transformation in context of New India-The Summit

There is a Chinese proverb,

"If there is light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the family.
If there is harmony in the family,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world"

Only the peace of individuals can leads to peace in the world eventually. In a similar way, creating digital mindset (nurturing traits such as creativity, collaboration and transparency) in individuals will lead to New India in the long run. To elaborate:-

If individuals develop digital mindsets

There will be transformation in organisations

If there is transformation in organisations

There will be a better society

If the society keeps evolving

We will create a New India of our dreams.
