    Message to Youth

    India has passed through several stages of Industrial Revolution viz Invention of Steam Engines, Invention of Electricity, Emergence of Computers and Information Technology, Corporate Companies becoming Global Companies, and finally we are on the stage of "Digital Transformation”!

    The Protagonist of Information Technology movement in India, an Indian IT expert before his retirement suggested that, in India "Information Era" is over and now we should start " Knowledge Era". But contrary to that, the youth in India is over riding to "Digital Transformation”. The result is we are going to face acute unemployment due to Artificial Intelligence, Driver less cars, Robotics etc.

    One way to countervail this situation as the IT expert suggested is to develop "Knowledge for Creativity". This is possible for the Youth in India only by learning "Thinking Skills". Therefore, try to learn at the earliest; modern method of thinking - "Unusual Thinking", apart from Traditional Thinking such as Natural Thinking, Mathematical Thinking and Logical Thinking, to lead to creativity.

    The advantage here is only Human Brain has got the capacity to make an end result "Creativity" unlike the Computers and Digital Systems. I wish all the best the Aspiring Youth of India to become " Creative Entrepreneurs’!
