India’s Vice President Venkaiah Naidu launched the Elyments app, which is available in eight languages and already has over 1,00,000 downloads on the Google Play Store.
“I am happy to note that more than 1000 IT professionals, most of them youngsters, volunteers of Art of Living have come together to create this indigenous app named Elyments. It is available in 8 languages. Ultimately we will make efforts to make it available in all languages so that all the people can use it in their own mother tongue. This is a big step towards an Aatmanirbhar Bharat. I hope this app would prove to be the one desi alternative to the many foreign apps being used by the people today,” said VP Naidu
Elyments has been formulated under 1000 IT professionals and is touted to be India’s own one of a kind social media networking app. The creators of Elyments have designed the app remembering the user’s privacy as one of the essential keys of concern.
While speaking on its launch, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said, “I want to congratulate this young team. A few months ago, I expressed the need that we should have an app made in India. I had asked them how much time it will take? They told me 1-2 years. I insisted that I want it to be out on Guru Purnima. It was such a shock for them, but that is the spirit of the youth of India, they can think of the impossible and make it possible. I want to ask the giants of India to continue advising them, and help them.”
The app also says that it has given importance to privacy and all the servers are hosted within India.
“It is aimed at giving a new boost, a quantum jump to the economic potential of the country by strengthening infrastructure, using modern technologies, enriching human resources, and creating robust supply chains,” said Naidu.
