The humans have evolved a lot since the Stone Age. The thirst for exploration has given us the comfortable life what we live today. Ever since the human started thinking, the growth has been tremendous as every exploration opened up new possibilities. But these did not happen without any shortfalls. Research is a process where the human exploration may lead to both successful and unsuccessful results. The successful ones may give us a product but the unsuccessful ones would actually give a more refined process.
The advancements in technology have made the people in the developing countries to use the technology comfortably rather than building one on their own. Since the requirements of the developing countries like us are very different from that of developed ones, our scientists and engineers should design and develop products indigenously such that they can address the needs of our own people. In spite of having top notch engineering institutes in this country, we have hardly developed any great products on our own. If India has to become a technological leader in the world, then it should be self sufficient in catering the basic needs of its very own people through technology. This can only be achieved through quality engineering education that stress mainly on addressing the social issues through technology and innovation.
