Science and Technology shouldn’t be confined in one department or laboratory, where good ideas may evolve but are often stuck in silos. While it is critical to have teams in place whose job is to focus on science, technology and engineering. Innovation needs to be a process and culture cultivated across the country. Everyone needs to contribute to it, asking themselves: What can I improve? How can I do it better?

Objective: To unearth disruptive ideas and concepts in emerging technologies identified by DRDO for enhancing defence capabilities.

Dreaming is essential to make meaning of life, find your inner voice, truly grow up, and show the next generation how to dream.

There is a time to be a spectator, supporter and cheerleader – but also a time to get into the game and be part of the action. A series of no’s or short-term sacrifices in the near term is worth if it leads to a good successful yes or major achievement in the long term.

You must boldly follow your dreams as well; become the hero of your story; make space and time for your dreams; map and track your competencies; know your beliefs; build on your strengths; and fine-tune your dreams as you align them with current future security needs of the country.

Having fleshed out your dreams, you need to embrace discovery, explore your domain, create your dream team, bootstrap your dream, and ‘date’ or dabble with your dreams.

Some of the more powerful dreams are those that engage the mind, soul and heart. It helps to put the dreams down in thoughts on paper and visualise them through actions (‘think it, then ink it’). Sometimes you also need to reach out to ‘strangers of consequence,’ or people who you may not know but who believe in you and help you; they have a ‘helicopter view’ of the ecosystem.
