Mumbai: Calling internet as the greatest invention of mankind after the printing press, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani said Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of self-reliance can be attained by making use of internet and technology.
Talking about internet in particular, he said that this is the greatest invention of mankind after printing press.
“I am a big believer that technology shapes mankind. Internet is the biggest discovery after printing press. The internet is still in nascent stage and the impact it will have after 100 years from now, will be for all to see,” he said.
He also said that India with a higher youth population, can give a development model to the world by embracing technology.
“India is one of the youngest countries in the world and I have great faith in the youth of India. If the youth of India embraces technology and Gandhian values, we can then chart a path for us that not only make us the greatest country in the world, but (can) give a developmental model to the world,” he said.
