Seychelles former President Sir James Mancham attends Global Energy Parliament

Seychelles former President Sir James Mancham attends Global Energy Parliament ( The Seychelles former President, Sir James Mancham and Mr. Shashi Tharoor, the former Indian Minister for External Affairs and until recently assistant to the United Nations Secretary General, were the guests of honor of the Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust (IVPT) at the launch of the Global Energy Parliament. The parliament, held from November 12-14 in Trivandrum, Kerala, brought together academics from different disciplines on a common platform with the aim of setting up programs for human action to bring about a better world where every human being will act as an indivisible part of the rest of the universe.

The IVPT was founded in 2000 by the great religious leader Swami Isa to give a wide range of services to society in the fields of education, holistic living, healthcare, human resources development, and other related areas. Through an array of programs, the trust propagates a new system of education described as a balanced integration of “objective knowledge" (explanation of what is happening in the physical world) with “subjective knowledge" (explanation of what is happening inside the human being, along with an interpretation of how he or she relates to the rest of the world).

In a statement from Trivandrum, Sir James Mancham referred to Mr. Mahatma Gandhi's famous statement: “You must be the change you want to see in this world.”

Mr. Mancham said: “It appears that humans do not observe the world in an independent manner, but are constantly taking part in its evolution through actions, thoughts, and emotions in the same way that one is influenced by his environment.”

From India, Sir James Mancham went to Nairobi, where he will co-chair the Global Peace Festival Convention, which opens today at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre with a keynote address by Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki, who is patron of the convention. Sir James Mancham is expected back in Seychelles on Sunday, November 21.
