Japan Rising

With an India panel member seated right in the middle of four Japanese panelists, the session was a perfect representation of Japan’s and India’s harmony and keenness to blend.

He said this to impress upon the fact that we are stepping into a world which is increasingly getting disruptive. In such an environment it will not suffice to simply know this, but to comprehend the exact nature of this disruption, and where exactly is its source.
