What is your “ONE THING” you would like to contribute towards making Vadodara a smarter and happier

Dear Young Vadodara Citizens, I have written this blog with an intention of inspiring the “Young Citizens of Vadodara” ( age 18 to 45 years ) for getting connected to the development of their city.

In this blog, I am sharing my story of :

1) how I discovered my connect with my city Vadodara & it’s young citizens?

2) how I discovered the ONE THING which I will contribute towards making my city a “smarter and happier” place to live in?

Here is my story ….

Two events of May 2016 connected me more deeply towards my city Vadodara & Young Citizens of Vadodara.

I participated in “Smart Vadodara Summit” organized by CII and VMC, where I got connected with my inner voice of Young Citizen of Vadodara for contributing towards development of my city.

Two days later, I went for a walk with my daughter to “Happy Sunday Street” , where I experienced the awesome positive energy of “Young Citizens of Vadodara – the young generation”

Inspired with this connect , I decided to take on the commitment of contributing towards Vadodara development for making it “Smarter and Happier” & also find a way to connect the positive energy of Young Vadodara citizens with this cause.

I decided to invest 3 hours per week for this commitment.




I started by asking the following question to myself :

As a Young Vadodara citizen, what “ONE THING” should I do which can :

1) contribute towards making Vadodara a “smarter and happier” city to live in

2) connect the positive energy of Young Vadodara citizens towards development of the city

I started to find answer to this “ONE THING” & applied the below three questions for finding my answer :

1) What is the “one area” which excites me the most or I feel connected to the most for contributing ?

My Answer : I love connecting with Young Indians as I believe they have enormous potential & positive energy.

Hence, I chose my area as “Young citizen involvement” for development of city by engaging them for contributing towards “Smarter & Happier Vadodara”.

2) What is the ONE method I love expressing myself ? ( eg writing, execution, liaising, creativity, leadership, etc)

My Answer : I love to express through writing blogs as a hobby.

3) What group do I want to create or join which has common interest of the “ONE THING” which I would like to achieve ?

My Answer : I joined the organisation “Young Indians – Vadodara Chapter” who is focussed on engaging Young Indians for nation building.

After answering the above 3 questions, The ONE THING for me came out as :

“To write and share blogs with Young Vadodara Citizens for connecting & inspiring them to get involved towards development of Vadodara.”

In addition to contributing towards development of Vadodara , this purpose also :

  • Opens up possibility to create new memories with my current “Young Friends & Family” from Vadodara

  • creates new possibility to connect with Young Vadodara citizens

This is my story on finding my “ONE THING” towards making Vadodara a smarter and happier city to live in.

What is your “ONE THING” you would like to contribute towards making Vadodara a smarter and happier city to live in?

I am sharing the list of areas with you which Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India has shortlisted for a smart city.




This list can help you to connect with your “ONE THING” which excites you for contributing towards making Vadodara a “smarter and happier” city to live in.

I would love to hear your sharing of your “ONE THING” which you can post as a comment to this blog or email me at shamik247@gmail.com or what’s app me. Cheers,
