India needs different thinking for innovation

India is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic country with rich cultural heritage. Different kind of ground based innovation is needed to solve these complex problems.

PROBLEM SOLVING THROUGH IDEATION AND INNOVATION

  • Work where there is a problem rather than in a lab.

    • Isolated population

    • Difficult terrain.

    • Conflict zone.

    • Poor health services

    • Poor penetration of life changing science & technology

  • We make students from across India & tribal areas gain hands-on experience in setting up Innovation labs and skills in entrepreneurship development.

  • We train students to

    • Develop problem solving technologies and processes specific to India with global application.

KNOW INDIA

  • It’s a civilization not merely a country.

  • 16.7% of world population occupying 2.4% of land space.

  • Indians are the original inhabitant of this sub-continent since at least (50K or later) and are comprised of a racial mix of Australoids (from 50K), Dravidian (Indo-Caucasoid) spread across Indian sub-continent extending from Indus valley to south india and more recently Indo-European–Caucasoid & Sino Tibetan (3000-1500 BC) assimilated in india.

  • They speak languages derived from either Dravidian or Sanskrit/Prakrit branch and Sino-Tibetan in Himalayan belt ( Kashmir to NE).

  • They predominantly practice Vedic way of life (Indian culture) that has developed due to the assimilation and fusion of all the races & sub culture since the people stated inhabiting the sub continent.

  • Belief and practice:  “All the path leads to one GOD" "Peace and Nonviolence”, to attain the purity of soul and to realize the purpose of self for the welfare of entire mankind of the world " world is one big family".

  • Predominant amongst them are Hindu Sanatan dharma, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and may other sub sects, which continues to evolve…

  • Many other (from outside of the sub continent) religious believes & faiths such as Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Zoroastrianism was also bought into India  by the invaders, traders, travelers and asylum seekers over the last 800 years' however, their practitioners continued to practice Indian way of life i.e., language, food, customs, culture etc. while their religious practices and rituals varied to some extent. 

  • Indians live in Metro, Urban, Rural and Tribal sub-groups, and interestingly living in different time-space concurrently.

OUR CULTURE

  • The system of shared beliefs, values, customs, behaviors, and artifacts that the members of society use to cope with their world and with one another, and that are transmitted from generation to generation through learning.

  • We adapt to our environment through cultural strategies rather than genetic predisposition

GLIMPSES OF RECENT HISTORY

  • Foreign invasion after 1200 AD By Turk, Persian, Mogul and English were mainly restricted to military or trade.

  • They developed their own residential areas (fort and cities), and remained secluded;

  • Whenever they tried to mix with local Indian population, they or their next generation generally adopted Indian culture.

  • They had no cultural influence on the vast hinterland, in fact  due to the threat of cultural intermixing, Indians developed more rigid & stricter rules and codes in order to survive and save the local culture.

  • When they forced  or encouraged religious conversion, population largely continued with the local tradition and culture even when they incorporated certain way of rituals and prayers as it was not possible to adopt to alien culture brought in by a small population of foreigners.

  • In modern times, influence of English has  spread due to globalization and communication but Day to day life remained very much Vedic or Indian developed over the last 10000 years (assimilation of pre-indus, Indus (Australoids & Davidian or Indo-Iranian or Indo-caucasoid)  and Indo-European (Caucasoid or later Iranian, central Asian and European) ) & Sino-Tibetan (post Indus and gangetic) over the last 10000 years. 

  • It is for the first time now that a massive change is going on from within as threat of foreign invasion has died down.
