Today is a big day for Indian technology and innovation. In 1998, our country demonstrated its immense defense capability on this day by testing three nuclear bombs in Pokhran. One year later, we had our first, indigenous aircraft ‘Hansa-3’ test-flown, again on the same day. Naturally, May 11 has been chosen to commemorate the technological advancements we have made over the years by declaring it as National Technology Day. Today, we have moved further than ever on the path of innovation. The latest technologies from the West penetrate the Indian market almost immediately, and the first ones to buy them are usually our celebrities! Like most of us, B-town biggies are fans of cutting-edge technology as well as the latest trends in social media.
