Founder, Modern Pythian Games, India

I see the arts, culture, and technology as a means for social change in society and another motive towards growth and equality. I am in the process of bringing about a revolutionary change in society through the arts and preserving our cultures, and by introducing new technologies to help our environment, security and safety, and educational system. I am in the process of reviving the ancient Pythian Games as "Modern Pythian Games" soon with the support of the representatives of more than 80 nations in 2022. The Ancient Pythian Games were held in parallel to the Olympics for art and culture in ancient Greece. Since October 2021, I have been leading the global "Pythian Movement for Arts and Culture," which has obtained access to around 80 nations in a short period of time. I founded and led the "Delphic Movement for Arts and Culture" in 2021, establishing National Councils throughout South Asia and establishing 26 state units throughout India with the objective of bringing arts and cultural activities from the unorganized sector to the organized sector under the umbrella of "Modern Pythian Games." The 'Pythian Movement' has gained widespread support from all strata of society, including artisans, bureaucrats, Bollywood superstars, and the general public. It was solely through my efforts that the sentiments of artisans were transformed into a public movement. The Hon'ble Prime Minister of India also emphasized on such movement for artisans in his recent speech in "MANN KI BAAT." 2 I have already introduced a technology for onsite early warning of earthquakes in South Asia, keeping in view of the indications of severe earthquakes of magnitude 8 or more in the Himalayan Region and the potential loss of human lives, infrastructure, and economic growth. The solution has already been adopted by National Disaster Response Force and the Haryana government in India.

I started my career as an international sportsman. I am a Grand Master with a 7th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo. I am an Asian Gold Medalist in the martial art of Taekwondo in 1983 and a forefather of Taekwondo in the state of Haryana. I hail from the modest Aggarwal family of Ganaur, District Sonepat, Haryana, and started my public career as President of the Student’s Union of the Government Institute of Engineers, Sonepat, in 1984. I have been involved with the Haryana Olympic Association as Treasurer to promote sports in Haryana from 1994-2000.
