We are organising the 29th Skoch Summit with the underlying theme of "Refuelling Growth" on 8th-9th June 2012 at Hyatt Regency, Near Sahar Airport Road, Mumbai. The key content of the summit is as follows:
Growth a Prerequisite for Inclusive Growth: If India had continued to grow at 3.5%, we would have been the poorest country in the world. It is the surpluses generated due to the high growth rates achieved through reforms of the nineties that have funded inclusive growth efforts like Bharat Nirman schemes etc. While some of the gains of this growth have been diluted through leaking public delivery systems, the India growth story itself seems to be slowing down.

"Whatever is true for space and time, this much is true for place: we are immersed in it and could not do without it. To be at all – to exist in any way – is to be somewhere, and to be somewhere is to be in some kind of place. Place is as requisite as the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand, the bodies we have." Edward Casey
According to the U.S. Census, in 2010 Asian Americans comprised of 18.5 million and 6% of the population. Constituted of several ethnicities and races, they are frequently lumped under one monolithic umbrella with their individual ethnicities reduced to catch-all terms of "Asian" or "Chinese" or "Indian." Yet, in spite of the many stereotypes attached to them, Asian American children and adolescents are constructing unique identities within the intersections of several communities and making their presence felt within American public spaces.
