I saw on - Dr.Darlie Koshy as part of new board team....congrats to Dr.Koshy !!
It indeed is appropriate that an Indian is part of ICSID board.
Hope that would make India some force to reckon with in field of Design and bring rejuvenation.
This I sees as perhaps opportunity for all of us to showcase India as place not only for cheapest man-power in number game but also force to reckon with in coming times in creative areas like Design and Art.India before was invaded was hub for great thinkers - right from our Vedas,Ayurveda,Upanishads etc are rich source of wisdom which is still source of lot of current thought leaders even in developed countries.
