comes to be accepted long after. Some token experiments succeed. They spread as
an initial wave. Slowly either the government or the society or both take it
up, give life to it, sponsor it, and give support in the form of a new
organisation. That has been the history of any successful social movement until
such an aim is fulfilled copiously and to saturation by a technology.
someone turns bad or anti-social, he cannot live any longer in his place. He
migrates to Madras. It is a frequent experience that he becomes a VIP later and
is welcomed by his own native place. What happened here is the urban centres
create innumerable opportunities which are suspect in the eyes of the
population. Castaways readily clutch at them. They rise quickly. Persons in the society have no courage to
resort to the new opportunities created by the society. But one who is thrown
away by the society takes to them. People can see the results, not the
history of any flourishing town like Madras or Bombay is replete with such
instances. The history of USA has standardised this phenomenon, as there was no
inhibiting influence there for progress since the social context and mental
attitude were fresh all over.
NIIT Physicist and educationist, Dr. Sugata Mitra, in his website, tells of:

which will otherwise cost $ 4 billion.

phenomenal, infinite and frightening.

that cost which, if it can be true, will eradicate poverty from India.
seems poverty itself is nothing when the potential is seen fully.
fact that someone can learn something implies that there is a way to earn
through that learning.
It appears that such a project will create its own market which will
raise the prosperity level of the population.
this happen, society will take upon itself the sacred and dangerous work of the
pioneer, usurping the role of the Planning Commission.
social endorsement occurs by the creation of an organisation which later
becomes an institution.
such approval is there and an organisation emerges to fulfill it, trade and
commerce see an opportunity there. That is how new products or technology
a NEW technology seems to have
arisen to fulfill social aspirations.
there be any evolution and any truth in what Dr. Mitra has found and in further
thought about commercialising the process, it will be the Self-conception of
the Society to Self-generate Prosperity, a consummation of the Theory in
this is true, it needs no sponsor, no support from government, no endorsement
by social approval. It can begin by itself if someone tries a token experiment.

is a world phenomenon.
