"What China or Taiwan is in the product manufacturing space, so should India be in the global software product engineering space. We have a chance to be the leader in the software product manufacturing. What it means is that we become the thought leaders in innovation, and robust maufacturers in product development. And Symphony that I visualise is to be like a Bose in audio, or a Michelin in tyres.
