~ Gandhian Engineering : Value for MANY, Not Just Value for Money!

Perfect solution for today’s Global Economic Crisis due to Selfishness & Greed /Consumerism  culture. Adopt Mahatma Gandhi(an) Engineering – Place  Compassion in the Heart & Passion in Mind…try to achieve MORE (Value) from LESS (Resources/Cost) ) for MORE (people)!! Think about Value for MANY, not just value for MONEY. 

How its different than Western thinking of High Cost/Resources is Better:

Attitude shown in the talk below is totally opposite to western thought of “Expensive / High Cost Means Better”…Any product or services or innovation which has developed using High  Cost and using lots of Resources (wastage)  is Best, it feels better, a perfect First World thing ….and you can sale at high cost worldwide, earn high profits and keep monopoly with you!

Anything which is developed in Low Cost and Optimum Resources..is considered as CHEAP , a 3rd world product!!  Even customer psyche has become like that too, buying high cost product is considered as a status symbol, a new social fad!

After listening to such talk (innovations), we need deep introspection about Capitalism /Materialistic / Profit oriented  attitude which is going through bad  economic crisis / recession  and dragging whole world since 2008!
