Topic Description:

Addressing the 66th Convocation of IIT Kharagpur through a video conference Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged students to work towards creating startups and innovating things that can change the lives of crores of people in the country. The Prime Minister asked the students to adopt the mantra of Self 3 -Self-awareness, Self-confidence and Selflessness to overcome self-doubt and obstacles. We are witnessing a new ecosystem in startup, innovation and research areas. We have to work today to get results in the next 10 years. There is no scope for hurry in the field of technology. A technological failure always leads to a new innovation. The PM also said that now is the time to work towards the futuristic solutions of health technology. The situation of 21st century India has changed; needs have changed and aspirations have also changed. Now IITs need to be taken to the next level in the case of Institutes of Indigenous Technologies, not just Indian Institutes of Technology. When the world was fighting climate change, India started work on the International Solar Alliance. Today, several nations are working closely with India on promoting solar energy, the PM added.
