    Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy said Indians are good at applying ideas and concepts generated elsewhere, adding that it will take time to invent new things.

    “The reality of India is that at this point of time, by and large, we have upgraded ourselves to the orbit of applying ideas and concepts that are invented outside India and do some innovation and become experts. What India today is, is a nation that is ready to seize the ideas that have been generated elsewhere and use it for our own betterment. This is the first step. That’s a very good thing, what has happened”, Murthy said in an interview with Moneycontrol.

    “We too will be able to invent new things. It will happen. I am very positive it will happen. But it is a gradual process. It takes time. We have to be positive. We have to be enthusiastic,” he added.

    He said the progress, abundant access to information, and enthusiasm amongst the youngsters need to be cheered. “Let’s do whatever little we can do to provide them opportunities so that they too can indeed touch the sky,” Murthy said.
