Yes, definitely. The hype given to facebooks of world is not coming from someone who knows technology. Having google deploy wi-fi in railway stations is a silly step. Our IITs are quite capable of it. Google is known for search engine, not wi-fi exertise. CISCO probably is a better choice. We need to be able to understand difference in hype technology and core technology that means something.
India needs advisers who propel India for valued innovations, and not silly retail commerce in name of entrepreneurship, facebook and twitter in name of connecting people, and google for wi-fis. I know of at least 20 path-breaking home-bred technologies that Indian government is not looking into seriously, and has capability of being global game-changer. Think of stuff like increasing food productivity by 40% without impact on soil or DNA or anything, at virtually zero price.
Yes, we need more pragmatic technology advisors.

For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.
