Often many have more than one opinion. No Indian is shy of sharing his or her opinion. This is what makes us an absolutely thriving, dynamic, noisy democracy. We are a continent in every aspect of the world, size, diversity, culture, languages, cuisines even the clothes we wear, the way people look across India. I feel technology will play an important role in spearheading Indian’s next phase of development. As it has become impossible to create jobs for everyone, start-ups have become important hence the use of technology becomes important in every Industry.”
