Innovation and application of technology will not only fuel India’s aspiration to become a $ 5 billion economy, but will also provide the country a big leap to become a competitive economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday. Delivering the convocation address at the IIT Madras, he said IITians were making Brand India stronger globally.
‘No matter where you work, where you live, do also keep in mind, the needs of your motherland, your Mother India. Think of how your work, research, innovation will help your motherland. It is not only your social responsibility but also makes immense business sense,’ he advised.
Pointing at the graduating students, the PM said he saw in them both a mini-India and the spirit of New India. ‘There is energy, vibrancy and positivity, I could see dreams of the future in your eyes,’ Mr. Modi said.
