|India@IT Revolution||India@IT Revolution a 13 part series show base on information communication technologies.
When the Internet and information communication technologies (ICT) first took seed in the 80s, very few could project it as anything other than an ‘elite’ technology to meet niche needs. But some were able to foresee the future and peg ICT as a highway to accelerate development across India.
Today, nearly 4 decades on, IT has changed the landscape of the nation. In seen and unseen ways, the silent revolution of the Internet, Telecom and related technologies have enhanced, simplified and made processes more efficient. Above all, ICT has played the critical role in the ‘democratization of information’ – no mean task in a vast country like India. From essential services like banking, government schemes, booking rail & bus tickets to remote access to quality healthcare & education; from computer-savvy panchayats & mobile applications for farmers to cutting edge scientific research in top institutions; from giving every Indian voice expression (through blogging, social networking, community radio, uploading videos, audio files etc. online) to matters of personal & public security and e-governance, there is no aspect of modern life – be it urban, rural, remote or metropolitan – that has not been transformed by IT.
This 13 part series will touch on this remarkable transformation and attempt to understand its evolution, present-day status and future prospects. While, much has been achieved by the early architects of the IT revolution, much still needs to be done to tie the Indian people into a network that can ensure that everyone has access to the same opportunities, services, information and possibilities no matter where they live or what their background is.
TThe series will highlight the exciting technologies that support ICT. How does e-governance across a billion strong population work? What supports the mindboggling, computing infrastructure of the Indian Railways? How does a satellite in orbit ensure that a farmer in a remote village knows the weather forecast? How can ones genome be used to customize medicine? How has the new technological age affected our notions of privacy, security & safety? And much, much more…
