Piggy-back Oscars and Beauty crowns ... is this India's claim to fame.?
You may disagree, but I think this is a shame (Wow! Poetry: Fame ... Shame!)
Now here's what I would like to see India /Indians to achieve...
Pot full of Olympic golds in every Olympics till it ceases to be front page news any more.
At least one Fields Medal in the next 5 years. (I could even settle for a Millennium Prize or two)
A Nobel prize in any one of the sciences every few years till it becomes a habit.
An Oscar for a Mainstream Bollywood masala movie.
At least one world class software product or application. Just to make myself clear here ... No! Infosys is not a software product! I am looking for something like MS Office, SAP, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Linux, ... I could go on and on. Let's say something like Hotmail.
A technology company that rivals Apple or Intel in innovation.
I think I will be satisfied with 5 :-)
