Two things from Modi's vision for India appealed to tech industry -- Including technology among the 5 Ts and focus on private partnership model -- says Debjani Ghosh, VP Sales & Marketing Group & MD South Asia, Intel Corp. Talking to BW| Businessworld. Ghosh says for the next phase of India's success, technology will be a building block and has to apply to all sectors cutting across the nation and it has to be made a part of the national agenda. 
 
According to Ghosh, the government has to ensure three things. The next gen of Indian consumers are gorng to be non-urban, unfamiliar with English and with different lifestyles. Technology for them has to be different and the industry has to go to grass-root level to cater to them. sO, government has to ensure that local  players are motivated to create products for them. Plus, broadband has to be made a reality. India has so far failed to do so.
