It might sound harsh to our ears but the title is a fact. India, because of its lack of innovation in technology and huge popular, has become the dump-yard for all global corporations to dump technology and cash-in from the levftovers. And we Indians – with no spine, no pride, no patriotism, no innovation, don’t mind being one. We’ll always keep patting our own back for being the third world ‘developing’ country and having our GDP grow at 8+ per cent. Shame on us.
Since most of you reading this directly or indirectly belong to technology background, I hope you’ll agree with me. We’ve been producing communication & electronics engineers since many years (decades) and it took us bloody 10 years to see ‘3G’. Oh well, my BSNL 3G doesn’t even give me 30kbps. The world is already on 4G and we’re still trying to welcome 3G. Something’s seriously wrong with Indian Technical People.
Apple introduced iPad in India few days ago. Why? Because they were ready to introduce iPad 2 in the USA and the rest of the world (excluding India, of course) and had to get rid of the unsold iPad 1. Isn’t that common sense? Now people in India will happily buy iPad 1s for the price more than what it was in the USA. The same is true with everything – even our defense purchases!
I wonder why Indians take pride in showcasing ‘Sukhoi’ planes at Raj path on Republic and Independence day. We just bought them and Russians surely know better technology and war technology than India. Otherwise, are they nuts to sell their latest technology to us?
Things are going wrong. No one cares.
