Are we Indians real innovators in the social / web arena?

Asked by santoshannamalai (132points) March 27th, 2011

I strongly believe that there aren’t many companies which are trying to innovate new ideas from India. Rather they try piggybacking on successful ideas in the market. I just wanted to get a clear picture about this. Are we good enough to show up some real work?

Innovation is not based upon race or ethnicity. I have no real knowledge about whether Indian companies are innovating or just piggybacking, but many companies from many countries piggy back. A good idea is a good idea no matter where it came from. There is no reason Indian companies would not be good enough ‘to show up some real work’. It is a matter of whether they are willing to take the risk or go with the tried and true.

Is it that they are stereotyped as tech service switchboard operators for American companies who no longer use Americans?

@woodcutter @optimisticpessimist Agree to your statements. All I could think is that the entire countrymen think they are intelligents in their own way and they can play risk free and lead a normal life. They do not bother about innovation. All they need is a cozy risk free working environment where they can just perform monotonous work.

Indians do have the potential to excel the technology industry. But they neither give it a try nor encourage people who do that. Sick!
