Decentralization of IT

Today Information Technology is not just a wealth creation tool for India. As we see, the contributors to it are from the diverse linguistic and geographical regions, it is flowing through the veins of nation. And that is why the more and more overseas companies are coming here. I said people from diverse background are contributing to it, but I am very sad to say IT has not reached to the geographically remote locations. As we know, IT can grow independent of the accessibility (in geographical sense), it should have reached to the at least district places.

MY comment on globalization...

Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (two of the Earth's greatest peacemakers) have taught us through their lives and sacrifices how to be GREAT. If any nation truly wants to be great then it should be characterized in their goals of service to other nations. It will be great when globalisation is more influenced by Gandhi and King.

--- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

India is linguistically rich nation with 22 national languages recognized by the constitution of India, of which Hindi is official Union Language.
