On September 9, the G20 Summit in Delhi is scheduled to get underway. Representatives will have conversations about various economic reforms during the meeting.

What is G20?
The Group of Twenty (G20) is an organization made up of twenty of the biggest economies in the world. It was founded in 1999. On September 26, 1999, a collective of 19 nations along with the European Union (EU) came together to establish the G20 group. Its primary objective was to establish a forum for key industrialized and emerging economies to meet and discuss issues pertaining to global economic and financial stability. Together, the G20 countries make up around 85% of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), more than 75% of its commerce, and almost two-thirds of its population. The G20 is a significant international organization made up of 19 different countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Türkiye, United Kingdom, and the United States), as well as the European Union.
G20 Process: How does it work?
For one year, the G20 Presidency sets the agenda and hosts the Summit. The Finance Track and the Sherpa Track are two concurrent tracks that make up the G20. Sherpas run the Sherpa Track after the Finance Track, which is led by finance ministers and central bank governors. The Sherpas of the participating nations, who serve as the Leaders’ personal envoys, oversee the G20 process from the Sherpa perspective. Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors from the member nations oversee the Finance Track. There are topically focused working groups within the two tracks, in which representatives from the member countries’ relevant ministries as well as those from invited/guest nations and numerous international organizations take part.
The Ministry of Finance is primarily in charge of the Finance Track. Throughout the course of each Presidency, these working groups convene frequently. The G20’s substantive work is coordinated by the Sherpas, who also discuss Summit agenda items and monitor discussions during the course of the year.
Additionally, there are Engagement Groups that bring together individuals from the G20 countries’ civil society organisations, legislatures, think tanks, youth, labour, businesses, and researchers.
There is no permanent secretariat for the Group. The past, present, and incoming presidents—the troika—support the presidency. The troika will consist of Indonesia, India, and Brazil during India’s Presidency, accordingly.

G20 India 2023 : Logo and Theme
The brilliant hues of India’s national flag—saffron, white, green, and blue—were used as inspiration for the G20 Logo. Planet Earth is compared to the lotus, the national flower of India, which symbolises growth over adversity. India’s pro-planet philosophy of living in complete harmony with nature is reflected in the Earth. “Bharat” is inscribed in Devanagari script below the G20 logo.
The theme of India’s G20 Presidency – “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth · One Family · One Future” – is drawn from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad. Essentially, the theme affirms the value of all life – human, animal, plant, and microorganisms – and their interconnectedness on the planet Earth and in the wider universe.
The theme also emphasises LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment), with its associated environmentally sound and responsible decisions made at the level of both individual lifestyles and national development, leading to globally transformative actions that result in a cleaner, greener, and bluer future.
As we navigate these challenging times in a sustainable, comprehensive, responsible, and inclusive way, the logo and the theme together deliver a potent message of India’s G20 Presidency. It is a message of striving for just and equitable progress for all people in the globe. They exemplify an approach to our G20 Presidency that is distinctly Indian: living in tune with the local ecosystem.

India will Become World Leader
In the last few years, the country of India is once again earning name in agriculture, science, sports and many other fields. India getting the presidency of G20 is a proof that India will once again become a golden bird. And all this became possible because at present Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji, the incarnation of Supreme God Kabir Saheb Ji, has appeared on this holy land of India. Even most famous Foreteller Nostradamus has said in his prophecy that at the beginning of the 21st century, there will be a rise of ‘Chyren’ on the horizon of the world. Whatever change will take place, will not be by my (Nostradamus’s) wish; rather, all the changes will inevitably take place by the order of Chyren according to the wish of Niyati (destiny).
Among that, the new change means Hindustan (India) will become the most superior country. Not seen for many centuries, such a prosperous empire of the Hindus will become visible. The religious saint born in that country only will be Tattavadrshta, the saviour of the world, and the giver of the knowledge to the world. Similarly According to “Mr. Charles Clarke”, an astrologer from America, before the end of 20th century, one country, India, would overcome all other countries in the field of science, but the fame of India would be specifically from her religion and philosophy, which the entire world would adopt. This religious revolution would influence the entire world in the first decade of the 21st century, and would force man towards spirituality.
In today’s world Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the only Saint who is eradicating social evils and giving true Spiritual Knowledge because of which in the future, India will once again be renowned as the World Guru.
