Patenting is a western practice and I am against that. Yoga postures, haldi, neem many things are patented, we dont know how far these patents madness would go. I believe Knowledge is eternal, it is like the water that flows. It should not be stopped by the interest of few. For every new creation, innovation, design, etc., I am also accountable to all those who have contributed for my thinking and knowledge, both living and non-living things in the universe.
We should recognize ones contribution but we dont have the right to patent any knowledge. Please see my website to understand why I am against patents.

Against Patents

I have declared all my innovations as Creative Commons.
