Do you have an idea that could improve the lot of Indians? Is the idea so good that it could help the daily lives of Indians in urban and rural India - but the idea is still born, because you do not have the resources - monetary and otherwise - to make the idea a reality?
If you want to change our country, Firstpost, in association with Mahindra Spark the Rise, is here to help you. All the details you might need to transform your idea into a solution can be found here.
Spark the Rise is an online platform for change-makers across India to connect with one another, collaborate and exchange ideas, procure volunteers and donors, and to compete for monthly grants from Mahindra.
Submit a "Spark" - a Project or Idea that aims to drive positive change - and work with the Spark the Rise community to make it a reality! Browse through existing Sparks and support your favorites by voting, volunteering, lending your expertise, or providing funds and equipment.
Hop on over to the Discussion Forum, introduce yourself, and Spark a conversation. The Spark the Rise Community is growing and thriving - join today and play your part in India's Rise! Watch the video on the STR section home page and you will get a better sense of what this movement is; a better sense of how YOU could be one of the many, we hope, who spark rises.
For Firstpost readers, it's even simpler. We do not expect you to have a readymade business plan and a watertight solution. Send us your ideas as you might describe it to a friend - just 'scribble' your thoughts down and mail them to us. Firstpost's editors will go through the ideas, and the best will get a wild card entry to Spark The Rise and go straight to Mahindra's Spark the Rise jury for their assessment.
Don't just sit on your idea. Write in now. And, with a little bit of luck, you could see the germ of your idea get transformed into a solution that changes the lives of fellow Indians.
