The stark paradox that hits as one scans the rankings of Chandigarh is that it's a city ranked ninth overall despite receiving the highest rank in quality of life and livability. It is a city dominated broadly by shopkeepers and bureaucrats, with a small number of entrepreneurs thrown in. Chandigarh is a young city and only by adopting a sustained integrated agenda can it carry on as a model city as its founders envisioned.
It has very limited local talent, almost entirely dependent on migratory workforce, and is backed by hardly any solid infrastructure. Apparently, it wants desperately to be considered as an IT destination, an endeavour that has no support due to lack of suitably educated professionals. The land is a constraint, merely 114 sq kms, and the availability of cheap labour supply is unsustainable in the long run. .
The vehicular density is increasing in the city. At times one has to wait for six red light changes before getting an opportunity to cross an intersection. Chandigarh was not planned for larger-scale economic activity. Even on the urban agglomeration front, it overly depends on satellite cities of Panchkula and Mohali. The demand conditions ranking puts it at mid level sixth. The income distribution and spending pattern are positive sub-dimensions, but the basic demography lacks size. The supporting industries facet lags at Nevertheless, the context for business this city provides is good, making it pitch at rank 2. But what kind of businesses should it focus on? What natural advantages does it possess? .
It would be best for Chandigarh to position itself as a global tourism destination, may be designing itself like a model French city. After all Le Corbusier, the Frenchman, designed it. On IT, if it insists, it should move up the value chain into highly advanced and futuristic technologies rather than ITES based on labour arbitrage. Soliciting start-ups and established players in these sectors would support its diversity of firms, where it ranks very low. Further, it should acquire a hub status for providing elite services to the rest of the country and global markets on a premium. As of now, all its high-spending population has to rush to Delhi for specialty shopping. .
Locationally, it is the city gateway to Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. But then connectivity, particularly international, has to be tremendously improved. It has to take a call in what ways it stays a transit city and in what ways, a final destination. It can surely emerge as a transit for recuperation phase of medical tourism, surrounded as it is by lovely Himalayan towns of Kausali, Shimla and Manali.
Welcome to the world of Parikrama, the circle of life. We take our inspiration from the powerful symbol of the cosmos, and its eternal cycle of life and death, and the power and energy it exudes in so doing. It is this inexorable fact, that of life emerging from dissolution, that we find significant and wish to realise in our commitment of building better and brighter lives. We therefore chose the colour red, because we felt it best epitomised the passion and excellence that all human beings share in their quest for building their ideal shelter, a quest that is not without its share of blood, sweat and tears, but which is infinitely satisfying in the end.
