Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'

My important career decision
In the 1990s I faced problem of obsolecence of I&C items in a big way,as newer microprocessor based products were flooding the market. Even though my bosses were interested to throw away those items and go for new purchase, as it involves big money. I,maintenance Engineer stood firm on alternative development and keep the existing things working. I was successful against lot of pressure. And of course I had to pay a heavy price of my career for standing firm on the matter ofOrganisation interest.
