I know I am posting this almost a month late but y'know its better late than never :)
So the other day I talked to my dad on Skype for the first time. He was so much awed by this, I can't explain. He talked about how the world has changed and how simple it is to be in touch with our loved ones. Although he finds it difficult to use his new touch screen mobile phone but every new update makes it easier to use for him. He talks about how difficult it was to keep in touch with loved ones, when there were nothing but land line phones, no internet, no video calling. Only hearing the voice of your family member used to make us happy. It is so better and so easy now, he says.

In the recent few years I've seen a huge race in mobile technology sector with new Indian companies cropping up almost every year. I believe it is very good for our economy. This has increased competition and fueled innovation. The low cost devices by these companies have connected millions of people to the internet. Did you know that 50 % of India's users are online through a mobile device? It is because of this. This is surely going to be like this for the coming years and I see Indian companies going on a global level selling low cost handsets and making the world digital.
I hope that many parents are connected to the world from the remotest place of India. All parents should be be able to video call their children and connect with them. That is why I say that it the Tech Future ahead for our country and I'm proud of being a part of it.
