Recently appointed Union Human Resources Development Minister, Prakash Javadekar told the students on July 7, 2016, Thursday that in order to innovate they should rebel and fight the status quo.
Javadekar is the appointed in place of Smriti Irani who was previously holding this position in Prime Minister's Cabinet. During the recent reshuffle of the cabinet, Irani was sent to head the Textiles Ministry, whereas Javadekar was appointed as the new Union Human Resources Development (HRD) Minister. He said, "unless you rebel unless you challenge the status quo, how can you innovate anything". He mentioned that improving the quality education in the nation is the biggest challenge for him. "Why do we lack innovation in India? Because we don't allow questioning. We don't promote inquisitiveness. If a child asks questions in school, he is asked to sit down. This should not go on. We need to promote inquisitiveness, children should ask questions," the newly appointed HRD Minister said.
He was recently having a discussion at an event, 'Infocom 2016' which was organized by the Ananda Bazar Patrika Group. He said "Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mantra is a sustainable development which does not impact adversely nature, but ensures progress of all, in which innovation is the key. The development in IT Sector has brought a revolution in the media industry and transformation is the result of new ideas. There are doomsayers, but one should always be positive and look for innovation."
Lastly, he recalled his interaction with Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple Inc. He was very much fascinated as Jobs discussed the evolution of smartphone and its varied functions in late 1990's.
