Design with purpose
When i heard Dr. Garikipati Narasimha Rao “Maha Sahasraavadhani” at JNTUK Alumni hall about how our ancestors preached design as one of the most important aspect of any new product creation it immediately reminded me about Steve Jobs Apple products. Apple and many successful corporations today give lots of importance to design and aesthetics with simplicity of use when they bring products to masses. I felt sad that our ancients knowledge and experience is not used by us effectively in developing products and we become only good in service sectors. I’m hoping our young and hungry generation of students will pick up the best from our ancient knowledge resources and create a world class enterprise with made in India products.
