we are not in CRT age anymore. Just look around the corporate sector how many jobs are there in hardware sector compared to software ??? Everything is becoming more automated by the day. So the requirement of good programmers are also growing. There are many local companies who want to automate but can't cause there are not enough small firms to provide the service with local costing, and can't go to the big ones cause brand value means the cost outweights the benefits.
This has a direct link to India's import as we know 80% or more consumer goods are imported. We have man power and resources but the people incharge are of old thoughts(read: either don't know benefits or simply don't know how to grow) and lacks innovation. Some of current generation( born between 1970-1990 ) changing the trend but the flow is very slow cause before Atalji's Govt. came there were little to none venture capitalists were in India(one had to go to US to seek meetings with VCs). Now there are few available and investing $1-10mil+ in Indian companies specially in software fields and also in VLSI manufacturing R&D.

Now coming to the op, why these knowledge are required apart from IIT/NIT and few premier institute the BTech/BE graduates coming with degrees in Engineering most of them are unable to write code apart from what was taught in syllabus. Current Indian syllabus taught how to score marks . So to be able achieve critical thinking some sort of home schooling also required(where you as a parent come in), so that these next gen can have the knowledge and guts to be entrepreneurs of our country.

My dream is to see India become 21st century's "Land of opportunity".
Just go read how many companies are owned or co-owned by IIT alumnus in San Francisco Bay Area so you will get the idea.

There's a saying goes like this:' charity begins at home.'

Free will also comes from parents and family.

hmm!! kids who grew up with iphone 1(2007-08) are belong to a class whose family income way surpass 30% tax slab, so they won't/don't need to have any idea about Storage & Memory.

Forget about the kids, how many of your associates know about everything that they use daily?? Or even better, do you know about everything that you use daily?

Forget about that, how many of us read manual before using a product. Many don't even know what is a SAR.

Read Steve Wozniak's interview.

Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days - Jessica Livingston - Google Books

Lack of resources creates an intense motivation matched by none, which creates geniuses like Woz. Devices like ipad/iphone don't help with that in any way. A computer makes much more sense.

Geniuses are not created, they are born(atleast until now).

Computers were being built and sold for decades and it has done nothing special to make the General public aware of technologies.
Tablets like Ipad or whatever, will also make no difference to them just like any computer in the world.

i have to completely disagree with you.most of the people have the potential to become a genius,they just have to realise it.a person needs to understand himself,what are the places he can excel,what are his interests and what are his capabilities when everything falls in line you will get a great successful person but most of them fails to understand this because of mere ignorance.

If computer or tablets or phones fails to create awarness or generate knowledge among the people about technology,then is it the mistake of these gadgets or the people? if guns or bombs kill people then is it the mistake of guns or the humans?
my friend bought a 50k laptop and he is 23 year old and one day he asks me "how to copy and paste a file" and the year it happened was 2013.In my class most of them have smartphones but i can surely say hardly few people will know what is android or ios or windows.if you keep a computer cabinet infront of them and ask them what is this they will say CPU whether it be empty or filled with lime stone.
Its just the ignorance and lack of thirst for curiosity and knowledge.just byheart things get marks and get a job and earn money even if you don't know or like the work you do whole day in your job.
For us "IGNORANCE is a BLISS" just ignore these people and move on.

You are talking about success and I'm referring to Genius/Natural talent, Let me put it differently...... Fast bowlers are born and not made....makes sense ???
