As a futuristic visionary dedicated to progress across the world, Global Thought leader Dr. M has sought to promote and uphold universal human values in his multiple social, cultural and business efforts. For over four decades, he has created an impressive and expansive legacy of interfaith and value creation activities through conferences, events, books, discussions and business.
Global Thought Leader Dr. M has authored multiple books such as Hinduism – The Universal Truth (1993), Performance – A manager’s challenge (1995), One God (2000) and India & Hinduism (2004) based on his life experiences. An exponent of interfaith activity for global progress, Dr. M was appointed by the United Nations to lead the Asia contingent at the UN millennium world peace summit in the year 2000.
A firm believer the power of immigration for global unity, Dr. M has envisioned and executed several events such as the India Splendour event in 2007 in Los Angeles (USA) and New India event in 2017 in Singapore to mobilise India’s vast OCI community to work towards better cultural relations between India and the world.
His thought leadership soon expanded to include the vast network of global expatriates and he formed the Global Citizen Forum in 2013, a not-for-profit that unites people and encourages them to go beyond gender, religion and nationality. To incorporate his motto of ‘going beyond’, Dr. M also formed in 2019 the Foreign Investors India Forum – a global investment platform that promotes FDI in the world’s fastest growing economies and Hindu 2020 – an initiative that seeks to promote the concept of ‘Advaita’, oneness of humankind.
Through the Singapore Film Fund, Dr. M’s independent production house, he is developing a growing reputation for producing films and TV series that constantly highlight universal peace and brotherhood. In 2012, he co-produced a Bollywood blockbuster OMG! (Oh My God) and followed it up with an independent TV series on Lord Buddha in 2013.
Global Thought leader Dr. M’s most recent initiative, called ‘Beyond Gender’ advocates universal gender equality and is a two-year campaign that unites men and women in the support of a gender equal society which will culminate in a mega event at the United Nations.
