Does ANYONE Know The Meaning Of 'Indigenous'??

THAT is the definition.

Now, here is an article from TOI:


UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon praised India as a "super-power" in the field of information technology as he unveiled the country's first indigenously created low-cost Aakash 2 tablet here.

Emphasis Added.


How can this be indigenously created when the parties involved have issued statements like:

Some of Aakash's components were made in China - Suneet Singh Tuli, DataWind

DataWind, the London-based company that won a government contract to produce the first 100,000 Aakash tablets, "does only sales". The tablets we sell to DataWind are ready to be sold. They are finished, ready-to-use products. All parts are made in China. We buy the touch screen from a Chinese manufacturer and make the rest of the parts ourselves. We then assemble the tablets into finished products - Li Junhao, Trend Grace (a company based in Shenzhen, China, that is one of several Chinese manufacturers making Aakash-2 tablets, according to invoices sent to DataWind that were reviewed by The Times).

Digital Circuits, in Bangalore, signed an agreement to produce tablets in August, but the managing director of the company, Subhash Goyal, said it had not produced any so far. Goyal said that his company had no experience manufacturing tablets.

An executive from another subcontractor based in Noida, on the outskirts of Delhi, said his company had not yet started production
