Brij has somehow managed to live most of his life in either one of the hottest (Nagpur, India) or the coldest (Minnesota, USA) place in world before finally landing up in Bangalore. Software geek by training and a product startup guy by choice, he has loved working on early stage ideas, sculpting them to finished products and taking them to market over the past 10 years. While he never thought he would end up on the other side of the table, he is currently having a ball helping startups at the GSF Accelerator. He likes reading and recently devoured the entire Game of Thrones series books, but also has a special corner for non-fiction. Follow his tweets @brijbhasin
“India does not understand product creation and surely is generations behind technology creation. Product creation is a process. There is reason India has not created any in 64 years of freedom.” These are some comments that I got from the One Laptop Per Child Team (@digitalfutur & @olpcindia) in reaction to the recently showcased Tablet computer to be made available to students in India for less than Rs 2000. Here is my interaction with the OLPC lovers on Twitter, please read it bottom up.

Too often people think that an idea is an atomic entity, you just need one brilliant idea and that is it, your life is set. Based on whatever I have read or experienced, this notion is far removed from reality. Ideas are not something you “get” but are thoughts & observations that evolve over a period to something worthwhile.
