A very large constituent of people in this world are untouched by modern technology. They are also plagued by poverty, malnutrition, lack of health-care, lack of basic education and amenities. We all know about these. In spite of large funding & missions, these people's lives hardly change.
I firmly believe, that apart from "funding" various alleviation schemes / programmes (which are welcome anyway), we require a very simple and basic change in the mindset of affluent people (like us).
That change will NOT make us poorer or less-privileged (as many charitable initiatives do or are perceived to be).
And that simple change is "gradual reduction of our wasteful nature", leading to "optimum levels of efficacy / efficiency" in everything that we do, now.
The resources to heal the world is already hidden "within each of us".
My designs try to unlock such resources through simple products / ideas that can be easily replicated & scaled up without any limitation.
