ONE SURE WAY FOR INDIA TO BECOME THE NEXT SUPERPOWER Published by: Wiley India

Have you ever thought? Will the search for a new Search Engine end with an Indian innovation?

Will an Indian Innovation drive the energy engines of the future?

“ If India is the IT capital of the world, why was YouTube not invented in India?” Or, for that matter “Why are the richest Indian corporations not taking the risks to set the nation on path to top of the value chain?”

What’s holding us back - despite the fact that country has a rich tradition of path-breaking scientific achievements, from Aryabhatta’s discoveries in astronomy, use of rocket-fire by Tipu Sultan’s forces to the invention of carbon-steel originally by Indian scientists?

Here is the answer- “Hand-mind-barrier in India According to the author the reason is the hand-mind barrier in India, probably a legacy of the Indian caste system, which divided the population into distinct categories. People who work with hands do not have the education, and those that have education do not work with hands. This dichotomy is not conducive to innovation, as innovation happens when theory is translated into practical application (Think of a dentist creating a new tooth-material, or a surgeon attempting a new surgical technique!).
