Generations of Indians have grown up recounting jokes about how the only contribution their nation has made to the world is the invention of zero. Innovation was something other people did.

The article also discusses a number of examples of innovation happening in India. I will be writing a series as part of my Tech Talk columns on Innovation in India sometime soon.
