Invention is the act of creating something new. Innovation is defined as finding new ways to create value. This book talks about innovation, and in specific, innovation in India - the barriers, and the formula to break the barriers.
SMASH Innovation: Smashing the Hand-Mind-Market Barrier attempts to guide the Indian scientific community on the path of major next-generation innovations - with real-life examples from how stage was set by Thomas Newcomen and others for James Watt’s steam engine, or Dr. P.K. Sethi’s collaboration with the sculptor Ram Chandra Sharma to produce the revolutionary prosthetic Jaipur-foot. Additionally, the book covers the entire history of innovations starting from Newton, Edison and Einstein, and finally going on to today’s areas like healthcare, energy, automotive sector, water management and lighting and appliances that will drive the innovations of future!

On the whole, this new book from Wiley India, describes individual and organizational approaches to developing a strategy and a culture tuned to innovation - including processes to manage innovation with case studies for creating an idea-rich environment, besides a model covering three aspects of individual innovation - create with freedom, nurture with passion, and transcend with detachment.
While the approaches described in the book are general, the special focus is on creating a century of Indian Innovation.

    • ONE SURE WAY FOR INDIA TO BECOME THE NEXT SUPERPOWER Published by: Wiley India
    • Have you ever thought? Will the search for a new Search Engine end with an Indian innovation?
    • Will an Indian Innovation drive the energy engines of the future?
    • “ If India is the IT capital of the world, why was YouTube not invented in India?” Or, for that matter “Why are the richest Indian corporations not taking the risks to set the nation on path to top of the value chain?”
    • What’s holding us back - despite the fact that country has a rich tradition of path-breaking scientific achievements, from Aryabhatta’s discoveries in astronomy, use of rocket-fire by Tipu Sultan’s forces to the invention of carbon-steel originally by Indian scientists?
    • Here is the answer- “Hand-mind-barrier in India
      • According to the author the reason is the hand-mind
      • barrier in India, probably a legacy of the Indian caste
      • system, which divided the population into distinct
      • categories. People who work with hands do not have the
      • education, and those that have education do not work
      • with hands. This dichotomy is not conducive to
      • innovation, as innovation happens when theory is
      • translated into practical application (Think of a dentist
      • creating a new tooth-material, or a surgeon attempting
      • a new surgical technique!).
    • SMASH: History of Innovations
      • SMASH Innovation: Smashing the Hand-Mind-Market Barrier attempts to guide the Indian scientific community on the path of major next-generation innovations - with real-life examples from how stage was set by Thomas Newcomen and others for James Watt’s steam engine, or Dr. P.K. Sethi’s collaboration with the sculptor Ram Chandra Sharma to produce the revolutionary prosthetic Jaipur-foot. Additionally, the book covers the entire history of innovations starting from Newton, Edison and Einstein, and finally going on to today’s areas like healthcare, energy, automotive sector, water management and lighting and appliances that will drive the innovations of future!
    • SMASH: Creating a century of Indian Innovation
      • On the whole, this new book from Wiley India,
      • describes individual and organizational approaches to
      • developing a strategy and a culture tuned to innovation –
      • including processes to manage innovation with case studies
      • for creating an idea-rich environment, besides a model
      • covering three aspects of individual innovation - create with
      • freedom, nurture with passion, and transcend with
      • detachment.
      • While the approaches described in the book are general, the
      • special focus is on creating a century of Indian Innovation.
