This was nothing short of history in making. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with the top hierarchy management of IT Giants in Silicon Valley, USA. This was done in order to present India as a promising investment option and promote the Digital India Campaign. Akash Nangia, Founder, SISL InfoTech, views this move in good spirit expecting it will lend India the much needed ‘digital’ fillip. Through technology India hopes to embark on a journey to be in the league of developed nations.
Many politicians and renowned analysts termed Mr Modi’s last visit to USA a ‘wanton odyssey’ but perhaps they are still oblivious to the magnanimous benefits it is manifesting already. Techno Giant Google has decided to make 500 Indian railway stations WIFI equipped. Thos who understand the convenience this would offer to people would laud initiative by Google. Many think this would lead to a monopolization of the market by international giants. To this, Akash Nangia has a plain reply- Nobody has stopped Indian telecom companies from doing what Google plans on doing in India. If anything, incoming of IT giants in India will be good for consumers as the competition will be stiffed.
By going to Silicon Valley, Mr. Modi ascertained India’s claim of being ready to incorporate technology at its core. The results have already started showing up. India’s ties with the super-power America are getting stronger. This is certainly going to do much good in putting our country as a favorable investment option. There are many who are skeptical of such advances India is making. But this all is a part of the making of a better nation, a nation that offers development to all its citizens.
