Telangana Day celebration by ATF was superb and enjoyable

Sydney, 16 September, 2018

I had the opportunity to be with Australian Telangana Forum (ATF) members today at Upjohn Park, Rydalmere, NSW, while they celebrated Telangana Day.

This celebration included Telangana style Barbecue at site and home-cooked food, sweets and drinks.

I was made at home and was asked to give away certificates and prizes to various people and kids.

Their hospitality, zeal and “can do” attitude is worth admiring. No wonder that Telangana people are my very close friends.

Jai Telangana! Jai Bharat!!

Hindi Diwas: Let’s do something for Hindi language in Australia

Sydney, 15 September, 2018

I attended Hindi Diwas, organized by Rekha Rajvanshi (ILASA Group), at the Consulate General of India in Sydney.

आप सभी को हिन्दी दिवस की बधाइयाँ और शुभकामनायें। हिंदी भारत की राष्ट्र भाषा होने के साथ साथ हमारी संस्कृति को भी अभिव्यक्ति करती है. हमें हिंदी पर गर्व है. आईये हम सभी हिंदी को आगे बढ़ाने के प्रयाश में सम्मलित हो जायें। #हिंदीदिवस #HindiDiwas

I spoke and outlined the following for Hindi language promotion.

1. Collaboration & networking among Hindi supporters

2. Team building with welcoming and inclusive approach

3. Brainstorming and strategy formation re campaign mechanism and necessary resources

4. Lobbying with relevant authorities and its mechanism

5. Accepting and encouraging the pluses of team members (Hindi speaking community) and less of “Me only” syndrome. Less of jealousy bhav (emotion) and more of Vashdhev Kutumbkam bhav (team feeling)

6. Effective working with Govt agencies-Indian and Australian, again using the best people for a particular segment of the total job (Horses for the courses).

I was pleased that several participants appreciated and agreed with my comments.

We need to take it further.

Briefing by DFAT/Austrade on Austraila’s India Economic Strategy to 2035

Sydney, 5 September 2018

I attended an enlightening briefing on Austraila’s India Economic Strategy to 2035 (IES 2035) by DFAT/Austrade. This was organized by AIBC and hosted by Deloitte at its Sydney offices. The key speakers were Australian High Commissioner to India, Her Excellency Mrs Harinder Sidhu and New Delhi-based Austrade official, Ms Leonie Muldoon, who outlined the opportunities and challenges for Australian business in India.

With 8.2% annualized economic growth (based on the GDP growth in the last quarter), India offers great opportunities for Australia for the next half century. The key sectors are education, retails and services, and agribusiness. IES 2035 outlines sector-based strategy with descriptions of opportunities in various states.

Happy Janmashtami 2018

Sydney, 3 September 2018

Happy Krishna Janmashtami

May Lord Shri Krishna give you & your family success, peace and health!

Remember, Lord Sri Krishna took a principled stand at the most contentious political battle of his era and guided the side of dharma to victory. His example exhorts us to reflect regarding what we should do when we face a situation to decide the right from the wrong in our lives.

PS: It was enthralling and uplifting to be at the Shri Krishna Janmashtami celebration at Sri Mandir Temple, Auburn NSW yesterday, 3/9/18. The crowd, the Bhakti (devotion), joy and arrangements were spectacular. Jai Shri Krishna (JSK) to all.
