The Story of Our Name
In Sanskrit, the ancient mother tongue many of our languages are based upon, the word Vichara (विचार) roughly means “Sustained Thought for the Greater Good.” For us at Vichara Partners, our corporate name grounds us in three important truths:
We engage in deep thinking, analysis and evaluation. We actively pursue knowledge, understanding and data. We look at problems from a variety of viewpoints, bringing our best thinking to the clients we serve,
We possess a deep-rooted desire to have a positive impact on the world, and
We believe that the world's greatest accomplishments come when we partner to generate solutions.
