In a recent interview with Economic Times, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that Indian measure success purely on academic performance and how good Job they get but lack creativity. In the interview, he said “ The culture here is purely based on one’s success based on academic excellence, studying, learning, practising and having a good job and a great life. That’s a lot like Singapore where its study, study, work hard and you get an MBA, you will have a Mercedes but where is the creativity? The creativity gets left out when your behaviour is too predictable and structured, everyone is similar .“ and also added to it “Look at a small country like New Zealand, the writers, singers, athletes, it’s a whole different world,” said Steve Wozniak.
Steve Wozniak, the man behind Apple’s first ever computer Apple 1 and co-founder with Steve Jobs, says that Indian education system is based on around studiousness and really doesn’t encourage creativity. Steve Wozniak said that he does not believe that there will be any big tech company or innovation in India similar to Facebook, Apple or Google. According to Woz India has just one Tech company Infosys as an example of a big tech company and even that’s not innovative. He also added to it and said he doesn’t see any big Indian Tech company making a breakthrough in technology or another field internationally “I am not an anthropologist and I don’t know the culture of India well enough. I don’t see those big advances in tech companies. What is the biggest tech company here, Infosys maybe? I just don’t see that sort of thing coming out of Infosys and I have done keynotes for them three times.”
When asked about coding schools. According to Steve Wozniak coding is very important but should not be taught to any kid before 12 years of age. He said that human brain gets the power to reason only after 12.”You don’t get to a stage of symbolic reasoning until you are 12 years old. Some people get there early, but most people at 12, and that’s why algebra can’t be taught till you are that age. And programming can be taught only when you are ready for algebra,” he said.
Presently, we as a whole realize that someplace what he stated, is right. Our instruction framework gives more weight to scoring great than it does on being innovative.
Most guardians in India would need their kid to take the commonplace designing MBA course, rather than going for something flighty, so dislike they need inventiveness but rather they don’t get an opportunity to indicate it.
