About The Event

5 to 8 April 2013, Patanjali Yogpeeth, Haridwar 
Patanjali Yogpeeth is located between Roorkee and Haridwar 

 

India is undergoing a major crisis of governance. Poverty, injustice and corruption are firmly entrenched, made increasingly worse by the corrupt actions of most political parties and leaders. Despite India’s rich cultural heritage, fertile land and abundant natural resources, we remain one of the poorest nations in the world. Nations much poorer than us in the past are doing ten times better. 
 
Soné Ki Chidiya (SKC) was launched as a concept for a new reform movement on 26 January 2013 by a few well-meaning individuals. The purpose of SKC is simple: to deliver good governance to India, so we can put the era of corruption and injustice behind us and start achieving our potential. 
 
A few individuals, being supportive of this reform idea, are convening a National Reform Summit where reform can be discussed over the course of four days from 5 to 8 April 2013 in Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. 
 
Key questions/decisions at the Summit
 

A draft Agenda is provided in Attachment A. 
 
1) Do we share a broadly common vision for India?
 

SKC organisers have proposed a preliminary Vision for new India, available at http://sonekichidiya.in/vision/. It is an expectation that this vision is broadly acceptable to you or your organisation (including political party, if applicable). If your vision is significantly different, the chances of reaching a consensus on reforms and methods to achieve them will become much harder. 
 
2) Can we create an umbrella of organisations and individuals to work together?

India has over 350 political parties, each with broadly similar goals. However, the two main parties get only around 25 per cent (each) of the popular vote. The balance, being scattered across tens of different groups, has made it easier for corrupt forces to stay in power. A common strategy is to divide Indians on the basis of caste and religion, making it difficult to achieve common reform goals. 
 
The Reform Summit will ask whether an umbrella (non-political) organisation can be created using which a coordinated campaign for reform can be launched. Preliminary draft Memorandum of Association and Rules and Regulations of a proposed SKC Federation will be uploaded on the SKC website a few days before the Summit. These documents will be discussed at the Reform Summit. 
 
3) Can we agree to a common Agenda for Change?
 

In addition to a shared high level vision, having a shared Agenda for Change will be crucial if we are to succeed in getting governance reforms in India. SKC organisers have prepared a draft Agenda for Change that will be uploaded on the SKC website a few days before the Summit, for detailed 
discussion at the Summit. A lot of related details will also be discussed, e.g. fund raising, attracting volunteers, process for finalising documents and messages. 
 
4) Formation of Advisory Committee, and Action Plan to implement the movement 

It is hoped that this Summit will take a number of authorise various steps to implement a national reform movement. It would be desirable for an Initial Advisory Committee and action plan to be agreed at the end of the Summit deliberations. 
 
Eminent speakers will be invited, including Swami Ramdev, to provide views on national reforms. 
 
Event manager 
The organisers have delegated event management to the Freedom Team of India (FTI).
