Story of barefoot knowledge

Just as Harini mentioned in her blog post, I too am wondering why Sanjit “Bunker” Roy isn’t a household name in this country. Why does it take a foreigner to tell us about the innovators and social entrepreneurs like Bunker Roy? Why is it that only someone like Steve Jobs with his hi-tech gadgets can inspire Indians? Why does it take a Time 100 list or a TED Talk to tell us the story that could change the whole of rural India or the lives of the poor in the whole world?

I haven’t seen such a path-breaking, innovative and unconventional approach that has the potential of changing the lives of a large chunk of world’s population. More power to Bunker Roy!
