New Delhi, July 24 (IANS) Indians are better at imitation than innovation, Vice President Hamid Ansari observed on Monday.

“As a people, we are better at imitation than innovation. We take hesitant steps and make what is known in common parlance as ‘jugaad’. But transition from jugaad to innovation is what we need to make,” he said as he released a book titled “The Innovation President” at a function at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

He hoped that outgoing President Pranab Mukherjee’s interest in, and emphasis on, innovation would give the desired results.
