Rashtram School of Public Leadership

“Nations are built by leaders who master their senses.” This was famously said by Kautilya. While leadership is popularly defined by external conquest of territory, wealth, or position, in the Indian context, inner conquest is the prerequisite of leadership.

Rashtram School of Public Leadership is our humble attempt to create self-aware and civilisationally-assured public leaders of India, through three key domains: thought leadership (academia), community leadership (civil society) and political leadership (politics) to bring about a systemic transformation in India’s polity.
