I like that the government wants to get involved in the technology ecosystem in India. I just wish it felt less like FOMO and more like a long-term vision for real impact. We need people -- smart people, educated people, motivated people. If you really want to spend a bunch of money, let's build schools. Let's make them state of the art. Let's teach coding. Let's teach innovation and creativity.
