No one can stop an idea whose time has come

The Hon’ble Sri Kalvakuntla Taraka Rama Rao, Industries and IT Minister of Telangana, speaks about the power of ideas and what India needs today — our own local solutions catered to the diversity and challenges that lie before us, unique to our society alone. He stresses on how we do not need venture capitalists but ‘adventure capitalists’, and outlines a 3D mantra –  Digitize, Decarbonize and Decentralize for a paradigm shift.

The Minister certainly was the headliner of Road to GES: Beyond Boundaries, ending his talk with a inspiring quote, “The best way to predict the future is to create it. We live in an age of uncertainty where ideas are the only tools to help”. Listen and be enthralled by his powerful oration!
