Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

WHAT MAKES AAKASH DIFFERENT ?

There can be many opinions about Aakash tablet , but it is worth remembering that ,

  • At its price-point , Aakash is the only tablet capable of bridging the digital divide between the urban and the rural India

  • It will be used by persons who have not even seen a smart phone or a computer – much less used these

  • Aakash is its own benchmark. Much like Walkman and iPod , it has created a new category - hence there can be no comparisons

  • More than 2 million orders are a proof that , it is a product which millions have been waiting for

     No doubt there will be hiccups – as with any innovation

    With regards
