INDovation -an INDIAN INNOVATION
(it is the part of my article on Indian innovation,needs innovative initiation)
India is the country of innovation & reverse innovation since ancient time. But today it seems to be confined in a small, better to say in very small groups. Innovation is a very reputed word, but we don’t try to understand its meaning & benefits. The reason of it is our MYOPIC VIEW; we have been learning to get good marks, good jobs & good money instead of getting good knowledge, good application & good innovation. Think about the world if Aryabhatta, Charaka, Birwal Sahani, J.C. Bose, H.J.Bhabha, Swami Vivekananda, M.S.Swaminathan, C.V.Raman, S.Ramanujam, V.Sarabhai, A.P.J.Kalam, T.Thomas etc. studied for marks, money & jobs? Now a day SOCIAL MEDIA is said to be the 5th pillar of our society, there is no doubt in it because
1. it is the plateform where we, the common people easily express ourselves
2. we can also judge the psychology of our so called ACTIVE SOCIETY.
But it is also important to note the PERCENTAGE of our ACTIVE SOCIETY who is giving some new ideas or concept for our society, our country? - they feel good in using CUT, COPY & PASTE or in RECEIVING & FORWARDING.
I opine that importance of INNOVATION must be taught to student since school level by teachers & parents in more simplistic & practical way.
“INNOVATION is nothing but the process of developing the ‘NEW’ from the EXISTING/NEW RESOURCES by using NEW SETS OF TECHNIQUES & TOOLS for MAXIMISING THE IMPACT”_shreekant
“Innovation & reverse innovation only flourish when we develop the skill to understand the PROBLEMS because PROBLEMS & DESIRE TO DO BEST is the base of innovation.”_Shreekant
Simplest Explanations: One day my 4 years old son made contact between a steel plate containing soup & the plastic bottle containing chilled water kept in a tea table. I asked him the reason of the same he replied that he was trying to cool the soup- it is not an INNOVATION for us but it is certainly an innovation for a four years old child because he understand the problem-‘soup is too hot to take’, he showed the desire to do best-‘how to cool the soup quickly to drink’. In other word he get NEW-‘cool soup (in less time)’ from NEW RESOURCES-‘bottle containing chilled water’ by using NEW SET OF TECHNIQUE & TOOL-‘made contact between metal plate & plastic bottle’ for MAXIMISING THE IMPACT.
If student develop this type of qualities with knowledge, they certainly become the part of “INDovation” team.
