No matter what views one may hold, the 21st century shall belong only to a people of ‘vision’ and those who care for the future, wrote Satish Seth—passionate, multi-faceted and restless scholar, whose love for India and the human condition drove him to become a great champion of the future. Very few civil servants would be able to match the visionary range and depth of his remarkable contributions to the making of twenty-first century India. Seth’s consistent and lifelong efforts to promote futures literacy and the culture of anticipatory management spanned every aspect of public life in India—governance, policy-making, the economy and educational institutions. Our policy makers today need to earnestly re-look at the ideas and tools he gave us for understanding and anticipating the future. We hope this book will contribute to the rediscovery of Seth’s ideas and the revitalization of his restless quest to create a beautiful future for India and the world.
