A tweetstorm on the book 'Bridgital Nation' by N Chandra

The book exudes positivism. Optimism, after all, is the fuel of audacious dreams. The book underlines India’s limitless potential for a spectacular digital India of tomorrow. (1/8)
Our potential is unmatched and our challenges are unique too.
It establishes 3 foundations of – vision, talent & tech – that need overhauling for digital India dream to be fulfilled. (2/8)
Vision - The book boldly advises breaking away from the western model overly dependent on automation aimed at replacing humans. Digitalisation & automation are scary if they are merely seen as replacing humans. (3/8)
And human drudgery unaided by tech in this digital era is equally repulsive. The Indian digital dream has to harness, enhance and compound human contribution and not replace it. We are a country of 1.3 Bn people. (4/8)
Talent - prepare talent by inculcating learning, unlearning, relearning and lifetime learning of skills.

Tech - Use AI, ML, IoT etc for developing citizen services and creating employment by reimagining-reconfiguring these by augmenting human capability. (5/8)
It also underlines 2 key pillars to drive this – especially important for our times and the times to come – promoting women enrolment (almost 50% are unproductive today) and enabling millions of entrepreneurs. (6/8)
There are good business books and then there are great ones that do equal justice to the big picture as well as attention to detail with research. This is one of them. It is also deeply grounded in common sense and street smartness, which makes it ‘real’ and relatable. (7/8)
