Necessity is the Mother of Innovation—An Example

  • A. SanatkumarEmail author


In the context of technology development, ‘invention’ may be seen as creation of a hitherto unknown concept, design, material, or process etc., through the all-important one percent inspiration ‘gifted’ to the inventor (seeker of answers) by evolutionary processes of Nature, and who subsequently by his/her own ninetynine percent ‘perspiration’, successfully achieves the end result. Inventors are rare persons, born too few and far between, although their inventions can have tremendous impact on society and mankind.
