Give reasons:

a. Why is India called an 'information technology superpower??

b. Why is textile industry important for our country?

India has become one of the largest markets for export of information technology and this has boosted the economy as we see a gradual shift towards the exchange of information and knowledge becoming more important than exchange of goods and services.

Textile industry employs the largest number of people in the country after agriculture-35 million people. It contributes 24.6% of foreign exchange earnings and 4% of the GDP. It is the only industry which is complete and self-sufficient in the value chain i.e. from raw materials to finished goods. Textile industry in India deals mainly with cotton, wool, silk, jute and hemp.
