Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai
Inventor of Email and Systems Scientist
Inventor of Email Press Conference
Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai was honored in a press meet at RKV Studios in Chennai, India on August 25, 2015.
Dr. Shiva later addressed the gathering. His speech was focused on how Indians have been brainwashed by the British settlers systematically to believe that we cannot innovate. Even now, when we think of innovation, we think of only whites like Edison. It is time we changed this narrative and realize that Indians have been innovating for over five thousand years. Great Indian innovators like Aryabhata, Charaka, Ramanujan, Dr. J.C. Bose, and Shiva Ayyadurai, who invented email as a 14 year-old boy should be the role models for youth in India. The press meet was organized by Dr. Karthikeyan of the Svasam Group.
