Ahmedabad and Innovation

Ahmedabad - Synonym: Innovation.
If Amazon e-book reader has a competitor it has come from an Ahmedabad based entrepreneur Vishal Mehta (Engineer from Cornell, MBA from MIT-Sloan, but spirit of Ahmedabad). Without making this post long and repetitive, I'll get straight to the point. No winder IIM A is the best IIM in country. The spirit of Ahmedabad needs to be cultivated in every city, especially those looking to grow. Lucknow and its distinguished leaders can learn a lesson or two. A city is not by its artifacts or statues (of excellent pasts and glorious presents, rather not so glorious), but it is by its innovation. Vishal has made Ahmedabad,and in turn India proud.
