Firstpost gives readers a wild card to Spark the Rise

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.

Don't just sit on your idea. Write in now!

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.
