We were often questioned about panache and endowment of our countrymen for being at power to the innovations of next Indian Google or Indian Microsoft. But, satirically those companies are lead by Indians. But, it was by 2010, that we realized that recognition in India is important showcasing innovators and their innovations that are changing the life of millions
