Mangalyaan – When Mangalyaan happened – the Entire world congratulated us. NASA was among the first to do so even though Six months earlier they did not think it could be done.
When we launched many satellites – the entire world hailed the achievement.
When we achieved the Triad Ability – we got the due respect and admiration of the entire world.
The basic problem is – For every real achievement we tout 200 Worthless achievements which dilutes the value of a real achievement.
When we Tout – FAU G as an Indian Replacement for PUBG – any foreigner out there will take one look at go HUH????
When we claim that we have found the answer to Twitter and the world sees Koo – they go THOOO
Every single “Achievement in Science and Technology” that is touted by us – is either a carbon copy rip off of a Western Original Idea or is an utterly inferior product that never works or is a total and outright lie.
Indian Predatory Startups roping in bogus advertisements of Achievers to sell fifth rate products or services is another thing.
Thats the Problem – We praise and tout so many mediocre and worthless achievements that the real ones get a short stick.
- India does achieve in Science and Technology
- India also promotes a lot of mediocre and fifth rate achievements – a Kid flying drones at 15, a plastic robot with a tablet presented in front of the Presidents daughter as a cutting edge piece of technology, an outright liar who claimed to build 600 drones from e-waste, IIT Delhi geniuses developing miracle products which either never see the light of the day or something that was developed much earlier by other countries, Miracle Ventilators that never serve their purpose, Coding companies for kids which use freeware and still sell for $ 300 Million etc.
- So we feel that somehow our “Achievements” are not being given any due importance whereas in reality – most of these “achievements” are too worthless to be given 10 seconds unless they really evolve.
