In today’s episode of Figuring Out, Raj is in a conversation with Srijan Pal Singh. A social entrepreneur, former Advisor to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, and founder of Homilab and Kalam Centre, Dr. Singh is also an author who's deeply committed to nurturing the next generation of inventors. In this discussion, Srijan shares his mission to create a new generation of inventors, echoing Dr. Kalam's belief in giving dreams to children. The conversation navigates through India's democratic spirit,Srijan’s formative years, his education, and his serendipitous encounter with Dr. Kalam.
The conversation drives into India's historical shift in the field of science and innovation. Dr. Singh traces the roots of India's scientific accomplishments, delving into the pre-colonial era and the unfortunate transformation post-British rule. He unveils how the nation that once excelled in areas like botany, Ayurveda, and binary numbers was systematically derailed by British policies and colonial education.
Srijan’s Homilab, which has over 40k subscribers, focuses on 2050 and beyond, tackling topics like Mars colonisation, fusion power, quantum computing, and the often misunderstood AI. Delving into future technologies, he explains quantum computing, envisioning a world where devices can predict astrological events and where humanoids could even engage in love relationships. He sketches an exciting future where machines have rights and lawyers.
The conversation turns to energy independence, a dream championed by Dr. Kalam. He elaborates on India's strategic advantages in the hydrogen sector, foreseeing the nation's transition to hydrogen-based energy. Addressing India's perception, he highlights the nation's history of innovation through significant achievements like BrahMos, nuclear capabilities, and space exploration. He also scrutinizes the West's role in leaving India with challenges, like economic decline and societal fragmentation, which were intended to weaken the nation.
