First things first, A very Happy Independence Day to all the Indians, and to our neighbors Pakistan as well. It’s the Independence Day today, and really all the focus seems to be in all the wrong areas, like every year, the media is picking up the bad in the country to highlight on this day. From Terrorism, corruption, Maoists, Bandhs, CWG Vs Food, Bollywood, IPL Scandals, Babus, all the flaws of India are being highlighted. I am sure as a child, if you were to point out his/her faults on his/her birthday, I am sure the child would not be really happy, and would be damaged for life. Then why is it that we are doing it to our country ?? Anyway, for this Independence Day, like the Republic Day in January, I would like to prepare a report card for the technology sector in the country. Of course it is the most shining one and the one sector where it does look India is shining and moving ahead.
First of all If you did not manage to read the report card during the Republic Day, here are the links :
- India Shining: A Technology Update – Part 1 – Military
- India Shining: A Technology update – Part 2 – Space
- India Shining: A Technology Update – Part 3 – The Government
The above links will definitely take you through the advancements like ISRO Bhuvan, Military might of the Indian Armed forces as well as developments in the government. It is pretty clear that in the field of technology we are moving only one way, UP. This year is no different there are numerous reasons for companies, Individuals and India Inc in general to smile. Starting with the Awesome Rupee symbol that could give a boost to local electronics manufacturers in India, right until the $35 tablet and more. In this half yearly report I would like to highlight the awesome innovation that is overflowing out of all corners in the country. First from what I have already posted :
