India Japan Global Partnership Summit (IJGPS)
For students of India it was a global learning experience to visit Japan for the first ever Indo-Japan Global Partnership summit, held on 5th - 7th September 2011.

THIS PARTNERSHIP summit aimed to create a new socio-economic framework, which is energy efficient, environmentally responsible and sustainable. It promised to develop a global model of this framework for India, Japan and also the rest of the world. This declared a mutually beneficial partnership in which the two countries will work together by pooling their strengths and expertise to benefit not only the national interests of each other but also other countries.

One of the major hubs of economic growth in the East, Tokyo, had the privilege of hosting such a big event. On the first day, we were warmly welcomed by the officials of the summit. They had an impressive start by inviting some prominent leaders from both India and Japan. The visionary and eloquent, Sam Pitroda, Advisor to our Prime Minister, addressed the gathering and spoke about commonalities in culture and creating new models of opportunities. India and Japan in their collaborative efforts could reach new heights. What was really inspiring, especially to school students, was the power of conviction and his great motivational words. As much as he emphasised on the economic growth of our country, he also stressed upon the personal growth of the individual.

 He was very keen on the 3 P's:
1. Private
2. Public
3. Partnership
The most impressive speech was by yogi Satguru who stressed upon the importance of increasing one's spiritual quotient, which could help build a spiritually elevated society. The first exchange between India and Japan was the teaching of Buddhism and martial arts. What we learn from Japan is organisation and resilience. And we believe that this resourceful partnership will bring peace, stability and prosperity to Asia and also to the rest of the world.
