The chairman of Aga Khan Development Board, Nizar Juma, a Nairobi-based businessman of Indian descent, on Sunday said in the coming years, India will become a world power through its traditional knowledge and intelligence.

He said this while inaugurating the ‘The future of power’ programme, organised by Brahmakumaris at Kaloor A J Hall.

Juma said the economic downturn, that began in 2007, shows the loss of power of the Americans. 

“India is the only hope for transforming the world from its current hard corrosive nature to a more benevolent nature with its ancient wisdom and knowledge. The 21st century belongs to India. The onus is on the leaders of India to be custodians of this world power,” he said. Over 500 intellectuals of Kochi and leaders from Australia, France, Kenya, the UK and Zimbabwe participated the event. A talk show with M C Dileep Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady, and T K  Soma Sajeevan, executive vice-president of Manappuram,   and Valerie Magnieux, trainer with Living Values Education Program, UK, was held.

Dileep Kumar said power is the internal source of experience for solving basic questions like what is right or wrong.
