CP Gurnani, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Tech Mahindra, said, “The pandemic has further underscored the dire need to seek transformational change towards a more sustainable tomorrow. I firmly believe that young minds across the globe have the power to lead this evolutionary change. We are currently living in the era of purpose and youth is our ‘Parth Saarthi’, navigating the chariot of the economy around undulating bends. They can shoulder the responsibility of creating a new world that is resilient and sustainable. From time immemorial, their intellect and undefeatable spirit have anchored nations to safety in troubled situations. On this International Youth Day, I urge the young minds to vigorously engage their passion, ability, aptitude, and intellect in gaining relevant skills to lead the change from the front and remain in sync with the innovation-driven world. I also call upon the industry, academia, and the government to collaborate to provide the perfect mix of ‘industry-ready’ skill sets to the youth that can empower them to become job generators rather than job seekers. A collaborative approach is the key to address the skill gap for the creation of a new tomorrow.”
