What the Fourth Industrial Revolution Means for India
Talking about the fourth revolution, and his book Kranti, was Managing Director of Here and Now 365 with Pranjal Sharma.
In Sanskrit, the word for revolution is kranti. It has been associated mainly with India’s fight against British occupation, but the word defines revolution at a very grassroots level. A new kranti is happening in the country now. This kranti for India has a larger meaning. To coin an acronym, KRANTI is Knowledge, Research, and New Technology in India. Indian industry is now being driven to invest in research and knowledge on how best to grow with these new technologies. For India, the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings tremendous opportunities to leapfrog many stages of development, hastening its journey towards becoming a developed economy.
