Dr. Koshy, Author of 3 major books including the “Indian Design Edge” published by Roli Books is also an internationally acclaimed Presenter and powerful Orator. Above all, Dr. Koshy is well respected as a teacher and guide by hundreds of students and faculty members whom he has taught and mentored in NIFT, NID, IAM etc. over the last quarter of a century. Dr. Koshy has been named twice (2006, 2008) as one of 50 Leaders shaping Indian Higher Education.
This book is indeed a 'must' read for all design professionals. Dr.Koshy has brilliantly tried to communicate the power of design to one and all. He highlights the need for India to become a creative manufacturer rather than being a factory to the world. Truly inspirational work. I enjoyed reading it.
