Since #COVIDー19 pandemic, indian media is buzzing with news about "(some govt institute/pvt co) made (x) in 10,000 rupees. Imported (x) costs 100000"

For someone like me it means a few things -
1. These govt institutes were sitting on their asses just polishing off fat salaries till now, not even thinking about how can they contribute to nation development.
2. We can barely make low tech things like mechanical ambu bags and sell them as ventilators ONLY during pandemics. Not fulfill real need of excellent quality reliable equipment.
3. There is SO MUCH entrenched vested interest in throttling local innovation and continuing import that an innovator, businessman has no chance in India.
The path that we should have walked on since 1947, still lies almost empty.

India should have looked at what so many other countries did e.g. Israel, South Korea, Taiwan, etc.

But even now we are happy with just slogans.
We are doomed to spin charkha and wear whatever it produces.

Do we not realise that we got our independence long time ago?
All that innovators and businesspeople are asking for is "reasonable freedom from licence permit quota raj" and they will take care of the rest.

But NO goverment since 1947 is really interested in it.

Yes. As a common man, this is the truth as I see it.
