On March 29th, at the lunch meeting at the Lincoln Center, Rotary will hear from fellow Rotarian Rajiv Mehta, following his introduction by Stacy Plemmons.  Rajiv will present the social, political and economic realities of India today through it’s history and mythology.   Rajiv is a graduate of Harvard Business School of Executive Training, and holds an MBA and MS in Engineering from Colorado State. He is the CEO of Synergetics, a cloud service provider for civilian and defense sectors of the U.S. federal government, as well as state and local agencies.

While the club was meeting at the Drake Center, we were favored by a presentation by Rajiv’s wife, Bina Mehta, on the subject of Indian cooking, and her recently published book, Turmeric and Spice.  For this week’s meeting, Rajiv will draw on his familiarity with the nation of India, which is now the most populous in the world, and according to an Economist report, has the 5th largest economy, displacing Great Britain.

As this nation assumes a more central role in the world’s affairs, a better understanding of its unique characteristics becomes essential.
