Inventor of ‘Dolby Digital’ sound dies

Ray Dolby, pioneer of ‘Dolby digital’ sound and audio systems, has died at the age of 80 in San Fransisco. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24075429

I wonder when would India produce such pioneering inventors (individuals as well as companies) who touch peoples everyday lives. Or are we doomed to be just the jugaadu kinds who will forever be on the fringes and not occupy centre stage in the world cutting edge innovation.
