I don’t know what would be the outcome of this blog of mine, I started topic first and then started hitting keys on my keyboard, so may Rajnikanth will help you with this, though the topic might suggest something related to me but I guess not as nowadays i am not the big picture however and yes I am eyeing bigger panorama still restricting or refining my focal point to india only.
As an entrepreneur (whatever mere projects I handled, as an Indian, I am proud to be an Indian, me being the smallest entity in this land crammed with entrepreneurs all around , right every corner of this country , we can see so many “jugaads” walking around here and there.( “Jugaad “ in my words is a temporary arrangement made as substitute and then used as permanent object later…) and its true that “need or necessity is the originator of inventions”.
From our childhood, every Indian is programmed for compromises, arrangements, substitutes and reuse with equally effective outputs and results as in india we believe in destinations no matter how we reach it coz sometimes we need to fly, swim or need to perform time travel to made it as roads are not available for everybody.
I still remember the plight of an Indian child who belongs to a Joint Family one way or other , his struggles starts from day 1 of his life , coz his clock is started and till the age of self independence he needs to wait for his share of cloth , toys , books of his elder cousin brother and sisters, myself being a victim of this situation , I still remember once i said to my elder cousin brother that next year I want your green jacket , don’t give to my other brother .I still remember there was a shirt and the reason of” was “ that I don’t know the location of that shirt right now, but I pray it must be in existence in this “kalyugi” world, so whatever, this was the shirt that was shared by 9 brothers and sisters of my family , I use to love that shirt when I was a kid. Same thing happened to my first computer , it was imported from Canada, it was Cyrix 333 MHZ processor , with two high speed 32 MB SDRAM’’s in each slot and it had 4.7 GB of hardrive t , it had huge color CRT monitor , its tower was Huge with a 32 X CD ROM drive , well this was normal but abnormal thing was till the time it reached to me , I was in college , I guess I got this machine in May 2005 , it had undergone so many surgeries courtesy my elder electrical engineer cousin brother and he constituted it to be a masterpiece or a legend of its own kind when I opened it first . ( God knows how I assembled it back ) , I saw so many jugaads in it, specially the Fan over the CPU socket, those were the days of technology for me, I was playing with the technology since then.
Today we play with Technology, apply “jugaads “on technology which is completely ethical in nature which require simple intellectual treasury as application “compromises, arrangements, substitutes and reuse” being riders to it , some of the perfect examples are Nehru Place (biggest IT market hub in ASIA where you can build you ALIENWARE for the cost an INSPIRON) and Gaffar Market ( where you can buy any cell phone even if you are expecting telescopic camera lens on your mobile phone) .
Well these were only few examples that are actually accepted globally, though some movies has good speeches for india , that are available on youtube lke “Purab and Paschim” or “Namastay London”.Well india is a developing country and now emerging as strong world leader , After all, what constitutes a world leader? If it’s population, we’re on course to top the charts. We will overtake China by 2034. Is it military strength? Well, we have the world’s fourth largest army. Is it nuclear capacity? We know we have that. The Americans have even recognized it, in a formal agreement. Is it the economy? Well, we have now the fifth-largest economy in the world in purchasing power parity terms. And we continue to grow. When the rest of the world took a beating last year, we grew at 6.7 percent. Infact my own growth last year for was 200% financially and 2 inches in waist and 20 kgs in weight physically…
The usage of application constitutes and provogues the entrepreneur in you, I hope most of us had read the book by shashi tharoor “ the elephant the tiger and the cellphone “ he once stated a story or rather a journey of fastest evolution of culture ever in any part of the world ,following is the transcript of his narration on “Soft power” in a TED show:-
“what I think India really can aim to contribute in the world, in this part of the 21st century. And so I wondered, could what the future beckons for India to be, be about a combination of all these things, allied to something else — the power of example, the attraction of India’s culture? What, in other words, people like to call “soft power.”
Now the reason I shared this with you all is that how India is an Entrepreneur country as a Whole , how we are different from others and still part of them , connected with them not only by the means of compromises, substitute, arrangements and reuse but by commitment , talent , education and self respect.
This is for the day from my end , this is something making me think about creating another blog on my entrepreneurship skills and where I delivered my best with minimal resources for maximum output.
