It is not charity but education and development that are key to growth and entrepreneurs should work towards generating more jobs, according to Mahatria (formerly T T Rangarajan), founder of Alma Mater and proponent of infinitheism.
Addressing 111 successful entrepreneurs, Rangarajan, who propounded the infinitheism path to satisfy the world’s hunger for a new way of life, said that charity kept a poor person poor while stressing the need for entrepreneurs to generate jobs, which would help in the growth of the nation.
Hitting out at vote bank politics and subsidies Mahatria said this had resulted in the poor remaining poor. “Charity is like telling people, stay where you are and we will feed you,” he said. “We need entrepreneurs, not Mother Teresas,” he said.
Talking of transition management, he said it was an integral part of life and there was no book available to guide one. He pointed out that in the bid to attain success, entrepreneurs think of money as an efficient resource and forget the importance of time.
He said entrepreneurs should set employment goals rather than financial goals.
Mahatria added that entrepreneurship was a key driver of the economy and wealth and a large majority of jobs are created by small businesses started by entrepreneurially minded individuals, many of whom go on to create big businesses.
Urging entrepreneurs towards the need for a larger vision, he said they should work on creating a global brand rather than thinking locally. “Don’t die as just another human being, do something historic. Can you be an Indian who can create a global brand?” he challenged.
Infinitheism is a path that provides breakthroughs and allows the human spirit to realise its boundless potential.
