Will world see a techy takeover by India?

A new book suggests, India is  world's ' most geeky nation'.

A book published in the UK on Sunday ( March 3) and due to reach India next month, suggests that India might just be the most ‘geeky’ nation in the world, creating the world’s next scientific superpower -- where, significantly, technology actually reaches the less advantaged.
“Geek Nation”, subtitled, ‘How Indian science is taking over the world’, is written by Britain-based science journalist Angela Saini, whose work has appeared in New Scientist, Wired and The Economist, and who also regularly reports for BBC radio science shows. Angela was named European Young Science Writer of the Year in 2009, and in 2008 won a European television news award for a BBC investigation.

The book reminds readers that almost one in five of all medical and dental staff in the UK is of Indian origin, and one in six employed scientists with science or engineering doctorates in the US is Asian. By the turn of the millennium, there were even claims that a third of all engineers in Silicon Valley were of Indian origin, with Indians running 750 of its tech companies. 

The book is a self proclaimed “journey to meet the inventors, engineers and young scientists helping to give birth to the world's next scientific superpower - a nation built not on conquest, oil or minerals, but on the scientific ingenuity of its people”. The author explains what this means for the rest of the world, and how a spiritual nation squares its soul with hard rationality.Angela lives in London with her husband, who is also a journalist.
Geek Nation has been well received in the UK and The Observer carried extensive extracts on Mar 6 ( see Image of the Day feature)
