5 things India needs to improve in terms of Technology
1) 2G Internet vs 3G
3) Special Hardware and Hobby Stores
4) Practical EducationLets face it, India's education is not very good. Still importance is only given to theoretical knowledge. Educational institutions are only concerned with how much you can write, rather than how much you know and how much you can do. For example, lets take Computer Engineering. They dont teach you how to format a computer or install a software or troubleshoot problems in most courses. They only teach you the instructions, diagrams and theories. I have seen many people who have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, but cant even format their own pc, some cannot even install softwares and games. Now this is happening currently in India. The engineers who have the task of improving the technology in India are bounded to only theoretical knowledge. This greatly hinders the technological development. Many times you must have found the salespersons in electronic shops have no idea about the products, in fact you know more about the product then them.
Also talking about the Technology Education in India, most institutions providing technical education, for example C language, computer programming, etc are not upto the mark. They only teach the basics in the courses, and that too very badly. I once had a friend who took up a course of C Language in CDAC, which is a government recognized institution. He found that most of the time he was teaching the teacher, and at the end, he didnt learn a single new thing. All he got was a government recognized certificate. With this types of institutions, how can India develop technologically?
