From The Editor's Desk - Fifth Issue, September, 2006


August is a special month for us in India. It was on the 15th of August 1947 India became finally free from the foreign yoke. That was a long time back, almost a sixty years. The present generation was born in an Independent India and never faced the indignity of the time before India was free. A lot of struggle ,innumerable valuable lives being laid down to the cause of freedom and dignity has given us what we have today. The honor and rightful dignity of a free democratic Republic India.

FREEDOM is a very treasured feeling. But it is time now to contemplate and review our task as a NATION BUILDER. Each one of us should review our targets for the nation and strive to make India one of the best, upcoming and vibrant nation .


In today's scenario we have achieved a growth rate of 8% in the GDP for the first quarter of the year 2006- 2007 which is encouraging. The CII report advises that the mining and electricity sectors needed to improve and labour intensive manufacturing industries should get special attention for down the stream effects all across the country.


In the aviation sector India has definitely registered a boom growth. The world all over has seen a tremendous growth in the low cost air carriers, in the USA, Australia and European markets. But India and China boasting of being the most populous countries in the world could not be left behind. A growth rate of over 8% has been shown by these countries and Asia at large. There is a mad rush in Low Cost Airlines in India, with big players like Kingfisher Airlines and Air India planning to enter the race. With the focus on NO-FRILLS, quick turn around time, choice of secondary low cost airports ,direct internet ticket selling and marketing and doing away with in-flight catering the entire generation of middle class traveller has taken to the skies. Thanks to the growing affluence, purchasing power and a rapidly growing economy.


The McKinsey Consulting Report from New York predict the BOOM GROWTH of medical tourist in India in the next decade. In the year 2005 about 200,000 foreigners came to India for medical and Dental treatment ,which is a 15% growth per year as per CII.


The present is definitely encouraging. We just need to sit down and plan our strategies and make action oriented efforts. Lets be ready when our fleet of 500 aircraft ordered for delivery arrives in the Indian skies. Lets match the speed and redesign our airports to contain the present aviation growth. Lets also concentrate on our weak areas and do something about it. THE FUTURE IS DEFINITELY OURS. SO, LETS GET IT.
