In a recent article on The Hindu, author Deepak Srivastava has stated that people are living in a world where they are no longer able to purchase a large desktop computer because of the cost of making one.
“What is going on here?
The fact that people cannot buy a desktop computer is because they are not able to buy a big desk and can’t afford to buy one,” he said.
“The only thing we can do is buy laptops.
And if they cannot afford one, we can buy laptops.””
A lot of people are getting rid of their laptops to buy laptops, and the only thing that is going to come out of it is a small PC that will cost us Rs 10,000 to buy.
We are talking about a laptop with a price tag of Rs 10 lakh,” he added.
Srivastav also questioned the current state of technology in the country.
“When the average salary in India is Rs 10.50 lakh, the average Indian spends Rs 8 lakh on their smartphone.
We have gone through a phase where the average person in India spends Rs 3 lakh on a smartphone.
But now we are not talking about Rs 3,000.
We spend Rs 1,000 or less.
So how do we get the average wage in India from Rs 3 to Rs 5 lakh?”
Srivartav said that people can easily buy a computer in the market and they have to spend a lot of money to buy it.
“I have a friend who is spending Rs 15 lakh on an HP laptop.
If he had not bought the laptop, the laptop would be worth more,” he asked.
“But the fact is, the computer is not cheap in this country.
And in the world of India, the price of a laptop is not the same as that of a PC.
The price of the laptop is very low compared to the price that people spend on a PC,” he concluded.
The author further questioned the state of the country’s infrastructure and infrastructure needs.
“People in the states of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Bihar are living on the land, and they cannot get enough electricity for their homes.
They have to buy electricity for the villages that they live in.
We know that the price per kilowatt hour is very high, which is why we are seeing people who are buying electricity for free, and people are not being paid,” he pointed out.
