Imagine

"Imagine"

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Tata Nano’s much needed revamp







If you want to cut a tree in ten hours then sharpen the axe for nine hours. Tata Nano’s catastrophic failure in terms of product positioning clearly acumen the purpose of my first sentence. Tata motors’ ambitious project on the world’s least expensive car left people around the world hankering to have a glimpse of it in auto expos. The project was unique, leveraged the benefits of being the trendsetter in low cost car market, while the 100 thousand price tag & controversies created the much needed initial hype around the product. People started turning their heads seeing a Nano on the road & everyone consented that this revolutionary product is going to shape the future of four wheeler markets.
So what went wrong?
Tata motors should have done an innovative, extensive and accurate market research in order to understand the demographic & non demographic traits of Indians prior to the launch. The only major USP behind the marketing campaign was the low price tag which caught lots of eyeballs but went awry while catering to the needs & sentiments.

Now that the market dynamics have changed substantially, it has got very few tough measures to survive. The new brand positioning targeted by the “celebrating awesomeness” campaign must adapt to youth sentiments & concerns. Customizing the vehicle and making it an Eco friendly car will serve this awesome purpose & people will take pride in driving a Nano rather than viewing it as a cheap substitute.

How ineffective content marketing strategy can be catastrophic for your business in a B2B environment.

People don’t buy what you do; rather they buy why you do. In today’s ever changing competitive market place if you want to stand out of the crowd, you have to travel those extra miles to connect with your potential costumer. Now that everyone is having access to huge amount of information, people will question your motives undoubtedly & their emotional quotient will play a major role in judging your proposals. By 2010, 22 percent of the world's population had access to computers with 1 billion Google searches every day, 300 million Internet users reading blogs, and 2 billion videos viewed daily on YouTube.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet). According to Euromonitor, by 2020 43.7% of the world's population will be users of the Internet.The world wide web has almost 232000000 no of websites with newer ones coming everyday & if your content is not engaging with specific keywords then you have less chances of getting noticed in your costumer’s busy schedule. Here by content I limit myself to web content only as other forms of content are getting obsolete day by day.
Now let’s imagine a situation where your potential costumer has just returned from his office & resting on his couch with his Ipad. He may come across your content while checking out his mailbox, watching his son’s old photo on Facebook, commenting on a LinkedIn group topic, while reading a tweet from his favorite soccer fan or looking at a new movie trailer on YouTube.


So he has got very less time & doesn't give a shit about your product. His emotional stage can be at any level & he will generally be pissed off if you force him to read your content and might dislike you on his personal social media. So how do you connect or invade into his personal space without creating a negative effect. While browsing he suddenly finds out a video showing the new technology developed by your R&D team which can help solve municipal solid waste problems & he comes across a video showing its prototype working in a city. So it will trigger his thoughts towards your company as he faces these problems in his city on a daily basis and he can pride himself if his company becomes a part of your societal endeavor  So content marketing is being able to put forth the unique stories in formats like podcast, video or a small article but must give the reader that Aha moment. If your content is that good he might share it to rest of his connections or maybe talk about it in their company’s get together party.
Many marketing maestros argue about the frequency of content; whether it should be on a daily basis or more infrequent. What I personally believe is in a social media environment you should have that unique story to tell, else you may misfit yourself there. Hence you should appear when you are eligible to appear with your new story and remember to keep it brief and simple as you are taking a person’s personal time to tell your story & he is not in a working mood. Few studies suggest that content marketing is the next most major focus for companies working on a global platform after big data. Data was always there but it became relevant when companies realized that they can retrieve new data about their customers with less hassle now & with the passage of time their historical data became the real treasure while taking decisions. Companies have realized the worth of content marketing now & getting geared up to take it further but while doing so they must not create a negative effect by disturbing costumer’s personal spaces. Companies are making sure that their content doesn't get duplicated by competitors and it gets scrutinized by search engine optimization techniques to give better results. For a good content you definitely need a good team of website developers, professional writers, multimedia developers and graphic designers who can analyze situations & deliver according to that. Content marketing is not about selling; it is about disseminating information to people to gain the emotional connect & maintain your loyal consumer base.In today’s globalized market, it makes more sense gaining a personal attention & stand out of the crowd.

happy Ganesh Chaturthi


Lord Ganesha is worshiped throughout the world as the god of education.knowledge,wealth & wisdom.We worship Ganesha first before initiation of any ritual as per the provisions offered to him by his father lord Shiva.Ganesha's ubiquitous presence at all places justifies why people believe him to be the deity who grants prosperity & success during adversities.Great Lakes Gurgaon students organized Ganesha Chaturthi with huge enthusiasm to seek the blessings of the almighty for their overall academic endeavors and well being.

Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations at great lakes happened to be a sweet remembrance of the golden school days.I have spent sleepless nights during my school days waiting curiously to watch my school buddies marching towards the school gate wearing recently bought attire with a package containing coconut,incense sticks & fruits.It used to be a festivity season for all of us spanning over a week long working on different activities around the school like cleaning,painting & decorating to invite elephant headed Vinayaka into our premises.The best part about it all was witnessing new kids joining the club scripting Om sign on a chanted slate.The clay made Ganesha comes into life once the puja starts & the idol itself teaches us life's greatest lessons like the big belly prescribing us to digest all the good and bad things in life wholeheartedly,the broken tusk teaching us that a sacrifice is needed for the pursuit of wisdom,large ears to listen to others carefully and the big head suggesting us to think out of the box.I wish everyone on this planet learns these lessons from the idol of Vinayaka.The mouse that he uses teaches us to be humble towards everybody & the sweets he holds are the testimonies to hard work that is needed to add sweetness into our lives. Ganesha was born due to his mother Parvati's requirements for guarding her and the brave Ganesha guarded it till his head got severed by his own father Shiva.The name Ganesha was given by Shiva because "Gana" means followers of Shiva & "Isha" means lord.Man's eternal strive to be part of the nature is clearly portrayed in Ganesha's idol which is a combination of four creatures-man,elephant,mouse & snake.Ganesha signifies the nature of elephants who are very warm and don't kill anybody in the jungle but become ruthless for the evils.I wish all readers a happy Ganesh Chaturthi and pray for the well being of planet.

What excites us Indians the most

What excites us Indians the most?

This question struck me recently after the Mumbai gang rape incident. The answers I got from my friends were very diverse. Some said it is cricket, some said politics & few said Bollywood movies. I agree with them all but my question was what excites us the most and I couldn't find a justified answer. We are ready to break houses of cricketers if they lose a match, we demolish a famous Mosque for some historical myth, we even go insane for rising fuel prices. All of these actions we perform is tantamount to our cultural beliefs, our collective ego and economical priorities. But we never rise up to a cause which is basic and will affect our generations. Our ancestors were rich in knowledge but for them priority was our well being but we Indians have become so selfish today that we don't think about our children even. We have grown a habit of acceptance to whatever bad is happening around us. Media looses focus on a topic as soon as it sees the TRP going down. We can't blame the media because they are running a business and they are no way justice delivering agencies. The TRP goes down because we are not really concerned about the girl who suffered; rather we forget everything as soon as our family members are safe. The justice delivery system in India is slow, the government policies are bad, police is inefficient & a lot of other excuses to hide our own inability is causing the problems our society is facing today. We never react to a person passing some lewd comment to a girl on the road because we think it is casual but how about a person passing a comment at you & that too a vulgar one. We think it is casual in India but the person who passed the comment, gains the confidence & moves a step forward. In India every 20 minutes a woman is raped and it makes the woman of India less confident & more pessimistic. We teach our daughters to stay at home as much as possible but isn't it hampering India's growth as they can add so much value to our economy. The day we won't be able to digest our food while listening to a rape case, that day will call for a true national awakening.If we don't wake up now there will be a time when we will be like Taliban countries & believe me that will be a hell of a country for our daughters.

 Our country derives it's roots from ancient religious mythologies & I remember the Mahabharata where lord Krishna came for the rescue of Draupati. We need the intervention of lord Krishna now to save our daughters from the evil and Krishna resides in each one of us.If we don't act now our future generation will never forgive us for the mess we have created for them as a country.

RENEWABLES IN INDIA

Renewable Energy in India: addressing future opportunities for companies.

As we are fast venturing into the energy climate era & there is a growing concern of rise in global average temperature which in turn is becoming disastrous day by day. So every country is looking into renewable sources of energy addition as an important factor for their economy & climate. Renewable energy sector in India is far lagging behind in terms of utilization of solar or wind potential due to non deployment of large scale solar or wind power plants .The main reasons for this is lack of proper planning, lack of effective subsidy schemes, land acquisition problems (large scale solar or wind power plants require huge land) & bottlenecks faced by companies to recover the subsidies announced by government. The electricity sector in India had an installed capacity of 223.343GW as of March 2013, the world’s fifth largest. Captive power plants generate an additional 34.444GW. Non renewable power plants constitute 87.55% of the installed capacity & 12.45% of renewable capacity.
A new World Bank program known as renewable energy mapping program will carry out mapping of renewable energy resources that will for the first time produce rich, nationwide data for each country. Coordinated and financed by the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program , the initiative will cover mapping of solar, wind, biomass, and small hydro-power potential.Thus the government will be able to view the granular data to understand it’s solar or wind potential which till now is underutilized. India’s cumulative grid tied renewable energy capacity (excluding large hydro) stands at 26.9GW,of which 68.9% comes from wind making India fifth largest in wind. Solar PV contributes 4.59% to the total renewable energy generation. 
In December 2011, over 300 million Indian citizens had no access to electricity. Much of India doesn't have an electric grid which provides scope for distributed power systems which are grid independent and small. Due to rapid economic expansion, India has one of the world’s fastest growing energy markets. Limited domestic fossil fuel reserves & the environmental constraints put up by the dirty fuels is witness to the future renewable energy prospects in India. The development of grid interactive renewable power took off with the coming into force of the Electricity Act 2003, which, among other things, provides for regulatory interventions for promotion of renewable energy sources through determination of tariff, Specifying renewable purchase obligation (RPO), Facilitating grid connectivity, Promotion of development of market.
The international energy agency estimates that India will add between 600GW to 1200GW of additional new power generation capacity by 2050.India is most active player in wind power sector & a rich destination for companies wanting to acquire wind power assets. The national solar mission, under the National Action Plan on Climate Change aims to add 20,000MW of solar power by 2022.Indian solar panel manufacturers are dominated by cheap export from China, Taiwan, Malaysia, and USA.India has been ranked as 7th in solar photo-voltaic cell production & ranked as 9th in solar thermal power generation. This growth is exponential due to several private players entering the business and various subsidies & reforms put up by the government of India.
The major players in solar power are as follows.

Moser Baer Photovoltaic Limited, Tata BP solar, photon solar energy system, HHV solar technologies private Ltd,Titan energy systems Limited, Sun energy systems, Applied materials, signet solar,Punj Lloyd delta renewable, Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd,Reliance industries limited etc.



 In March 2007 the Indian government announced a semiconductor policy under its Special Incentive Package Scheme (SIPS) which will provide 20% of the capital expenditure during the first 10 years for semiconductor industries, including manufacturing activities related to solar PV technology located in Special Economic Zones (SEZ) and 25% for industries not located in an SEZ. India has among the highest solar irradiance in the world which makes solar PV all the more attractive for India. Odisha and Andhra Pradesh  also houses some of the best quality reserves of silica (basic feedstock for metal grade Si). India has demonstrated globally proven metallurgical processing capacities and capabilities. India is already an established low cost producer and assembler of solar PV cells and modules. The major barrier for solar projects is their high upfront costs while putting up the project. Companies around the world are planning & developing production facilities that run into gig watts while India has not yet put enough on R & D for implementation of such projects. While it is obvious that to keep in pace with the growing economy India will add renewable assets to utilize its wind & solar power fully.
Wind power plants face land acquisition problems as well as the reduced subsidy & high operation costs are driving large companies to sell off their wind energy assets, which is non-core for them, to renewable energy based companies. As far as hydro sector is considered it is facing several issues like long wait for forest & land clearances, inter state disputes on water sharing, inadequate transmission capacity, large construction periods & geological surprises as in Uttarakhand tragedy.



Thus as the Indian society is getting more aware of the clean fuel compared with the bad carbon footprints left by fossil fuels the renewable energy sector in India is confident & poised for growth.

THE THEORY OF DOTS

We should never judge or view our lives connecting the dots forwards as future is extremely uncertain & volatile. We should connect the dots backwards as every dot in your life had a purpose. Whether it seemed a black dot does not matter. When you will be joining the dots backwards all of them seems right to you now. I will be definitely connecting my life’s dots backwards after 30 years or so & all of my decisions will seem fair to me as I did justice to each of them & the black dots won’t come to any picture then.


After graduating from my undergraduate engineering college my times flew in a nut shell. But it all seems fair now when I look back & connect the dots. I got transformed into a whole new professional avatar. I underwent a whole new era of aluminium industry witnessing the largest single site aluminium smelter of Vedanta Aluminium Limited in whole Asia being nurtured from a green field stage to the verge of a successful investment in a very short span of three years. It was fascinating & exciting to be with such a young bunch of group who were truly driven by passions & hard work. Delights came either in the form of a senior’s appraisal or a brand new gadget. I was either busy with a new challenging project or partying at a new wonderful hangout. I derived a lot of skills from my colleagues or senior managers either in the form of technical knowledge, team playing or at times decision making. It was always a new learning experience & a feel of achievement when a successful project was getting implemented. I got delighted seeing the machines going into action & the programs driving them fine, the things which I fantasized about during my engineering. I got a lot of fat, I toured lots of kilometres on my royal enfield  & made some amazing friends who are going to stay with my life forever. I learnt that it takes lots of sweat to generate a product and make it sellable. It was a challenge every time we received a new costumer complaint & we used to take oaths together to remove the flaw from the processes to ensure the costumer stays back with us. The business of aluminium metal fascinated me a lot just like the fascination I had for machines during my college life. We got successes in our team either implementing 5S on the shop floor or getting our smelter site ISO50001 (Enms) accreditation. All these fast & busy things kept me out from my blog for whole three years.
The fascination of machines grew towards the fascination of business & I resigned from my job to study business processes at great lakes institute of energy management & research. I observed the nuances caused by energy issues on the world economy. The resource primary for any business or basic living today is energy which is the core concern of almost all key policymakers around the world. I realized that the machines I had always fascinated about or my bike itself will stop the moment it will lack energy. So the biggest contribution to the society one can make is to make the hotter, flatter & crowded world energy efficient as well as energy sufficient, by the mean time sustaining the mother nature for our upcoming generations. The time has come for a true global revolution where we will witness a tremendous change in energy structure of economies either in the form up scaling of current technologies or whole new alternatives derived from the nature itself making the planet self sustainable with energy for us.


Many people complain about life not being fair for them when it is a universal truth that life isn’t fair for any person at all. It is always about making the moments count so that it seems fair in future when we connect the dots backwards.

Seems like I will be earning my own penny soon


By the way I have forgot to download my interview experience, first one of my life.It was awesome actually.whole day-
[morning 9.30A.M. to evening 6.30P.M.]

morning 9.00A.M;--I prepared from R.S. agrawal, recalled about last night and went ahead .Our placement officer instructed us about the eligibility criteria.Then the team arrived and for one hour presentation on vedanta resources  was carried out.
morning 10.30A.M.-Written test was started.Most of the questions were from R.S agrawal quantitative aptitude.
morning 12.00A.M.-Results of the written test was declared & I heard that two people from our branch are selected, me and one other.I suddenly prepared for the interview as they canceled the G.D. round at the last moment due to less nos of written qualified students.I looked at my project details,my summer training about PLC handbooks,PMS book by J.P. Bently within half an hour.
1.00P.M.-I reached the venue and the interviews were already started.My turn was 2nd from the last side.I was called at 3.30P.M.
3.30P.M.-I asked for permission and entered .Then I wished them and they offered me seat.They were two, one lady  looked at the CV only very thoroughly .The other sir took my interview asking about why less percentage in +2 and reason for one year gap between +2 and engineering.Then he asked me for about one hour on my project,SCADA,PLC,BMI,PMS,SS,float sensor,LVDT,PID controllers,ECG.He threw some jokes about his college life in the beginning.I told him about our ragging,late night games in the hostel. 5.00P.M.-I was selected and i signed the offer later immediately.I was happy and grateful to god. Then I underwent a lot of tests medical[ECG,TMT,Blood,etc etc long list] the next week.

mid exam goosebumps


hiii all.I just love blogging.Here I m able to confess anything .It is like an open mirror.Since the moment I am into blogging I feel like having a friend to whom I can speak out anything with few exceptions though which I manage to bring in as some facts cannot be published on internet,Hey guys do u know that I m writing this post in the midst of my 4th semester exams.Really I couldn't stop myself as our exams are going to be over by Monday and then I will be on my way to Joda --a mining city in Keonjhar district in orissa.This city is famous for iron ores .Elephants may come across you while travelling.Really I m not joking.Elephants come across the roads and block the vehicles often but I have never seen them harming anybody.They take away offered foods along with them while verifying each and every vehicle on the highway.Actually their jungles are being cut for mining purposes, so where will they go?Believe me the city is heavily polluted due to mining activities by industries.There are hundreds of big industries in the city.There was a day when it was pretty dangerous during night near the jungles but now the city is overcrowded with outsiders.
The price of commodities are very high there and there is no good living place as all are filled out with smoke.But venture out of Joda and you will find about more than 15 tourist places .Beautiful jungles and rivers.The nearby villages are full of tribal people and now they are suffering from the bad impact of industrialization.So ten days there as my brother is an Engineer out there in Tata sponge plant.I will undergo some industrial training as I have planned.Then I am returning to Bhubaneswar ,city of temples,city of comfort for me, the capital of orissa for summer training.I am planning to do some advanced java classes along with dot net classes.Actually we are a group of friends who are planning for some outing in the summer to some nearby place which will give us a nice break from this graduation rush.Then after 45 days of holidays I have to be back for my 3rd year and I am excited about the fact that we will be super seniors by then waiting eagerly for new people in the campus.Hoping to do some friendly ragging of the juniors but the principal seems to be very strict this time.It is time for dinner and I m feeling very hungry irrespective of the bad smell of our canteen in the college.Anyways appetite makes one forget everything like I have forgotten all tastes.

Just another girl

Woke up round a half past ten

Can’t believe that I'm late again

Put down about a quart of caffeine

To stop my pulse and then

I grab my jeans off the floor and i hit the door

Just the same old same

It goes to show

You never know

When everything is about to change

Just another day

That started out like any other

Just another girl

Who took my breath away

And then she turned around

She took me down

Just another day that i had the best day of my life

Can’t say exactly what it was

She’s not the usual type

She wore a cowboy hat with the red Prada boots and a Gwen Stefani smile

Then she pulled out a pen and surprised me when she wrote her number on my hand

Then she was gone

And from now on

I'm gonna be a different man

Just another day

That started out like any other

Just another girl

Who took my breath away?

And then she turned around

She took me down

Just another day that i had the best day of my life

I guess it goes to show

You never really know

When everything's about to change

Just another day

That started out like any other

Just another girl

Who took my breath away?

And then she turned around

She took me down

Just another day that i had the best day of my life

Just another day

That started out like any other

Just another girl

Who took my breath away?

And then she turned around

She took me down

Just another day that i had the best day of my life

Started out like any other

Had the best day of my life

Best day of my life

Took my breath away

Had the best day of my life

So how to achieve Self-Improvement/Positive-Attitude

No one enjoys hearing negative comments from others, especially if there is no constructive value to them. So why put up with these comments when they come from you. Negative thinking makes you less attractive to the abundance around you and more attractive to all that you don't want. You attract what you think about and focus on. The main reason why people fall far short of their desires in life is self sabotage. Most of it happens at a very subtle subconscious level. Many of those negative thoughts that you get, even the little tiny ones that last only milliseconds are part of your self sabotage. Deleting your automatic negative programming and replacing it with positives is a monumental task, but it can be accomplished in a number of ways. You can change your body and even your whole life and make it what you want if you start by following these guidelines to set yourself up for success:

1. Recognize your potential We can't all have a body like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Elle McPherson. With the right genetics and self-determination you might come close if you're prepared to do what it takes. But with a realistic assessment of your body, natural attributes and limitations you will be able to avoid the disappointment from unrealistic expectations. Be careful not to sell yourself short though.

2. Define your purpose the whys behind what you do will lend power to your success potential. If your reasons for working out, dieting or training at something are strong enough they will pull you toward the outcome you desire. Keeping in mind the compelling reasons for what you want will help keep the dream alive. If you don't have compelling reasons you will drop the goal when the going gets tough.

3. Decide the goals you want Keep your long term goal in mind but focus on the little steps that achieve the short-term goals that lead to your ultimate desired result. Make your timeframe realistic and be patient with yourself. You can always make adjustments along the way. Remind yourself that 'Rome wasn't built in a day'.

4. Discipline yourself Focus on your goals, see yourself already there and put in the action that is necessary. Working out and eating right require discipline. Discipline focuses your attention and draws you to your goal. Train yourself to every day do at least one thing that you don't want to do, that if you did it, would advance you closer to your goal.

5. Get motivated Keep your purpose foremost in your mind for that extra push toward achieving your goals. Keep the negatives at bay when setbacks and procrastination arise by focusing on the end product rather than the process to get there. If you think about the cold early morning start rather than the good feeling of completing your workout you won't get past first base.

6. Develop self-confidence Believe in your ability to achieve your goals. Don't allow yourself the luxury of indulging in complaining, expressing self-doubt or frustration. Visualize yourself achieving the success your want. Do activities that give you feelings of success and accomplishment.

7. Replace negatives with positives This may be easier said than done but you've got to start to develop the positivity habit. Catch yourself whenever you hear a negative thought and stop it. Enlist the aid of a partner to help you.

8. Avoid negative people and situations You wouldn't choose to breathe toxin-laden air or eat poisonous food would you? So why stay in the presence of people and situations that are emotionally toxic. Negativity is contagious... just as positivity is.

9. Accept what is Accepting things for the way they are does not mean you have to like it or that it can't be changed. Once you accept it you remove your subconscious resistance and you can actually proceed to change it. Moaning and complaining keep you attached to that very thing you are whining about and push away the very thing you say you want. Your thoughts create your reality. Negative thinking will drag you down and obstruct your goals. Change your thinking and you change your world.

Digital signature -A new era of secure economic transactions.


Digital signature is the most fascinating application of cryptography these days and as per my intuition it is going to be utilized and developed all over the world in few more years.We were having a techfest called ADVAITA this year .I decided to go over there and present a paper with my branch colleague Sumeet.Thinking of some good papers I had the idea of this paper on my mind.At first I was not at all confident of getting success because being in 4th Sem means there is no way of having knowledge about cryptography still we managed to mug up some of the cryptographic algorithms alongside loads of research in the development activities in this area.Luckily we were not asked any kinda questions about core cryptographic algorithms & that is how we had a narrow escape.So after all we managed to get the second position but what I feel good at is I got some special kind of confidence after presenting the paper due to the fact that we were able to present our assessments and analysis.It is not about winning something but the place is for proving yourself before nobody but yourself only.Below follows the abstract of our paper .The links for full paper and presentation are as follows.

There are many ways of applying cryptography and one of the many is “Digital signature” which is also known as “advanced electronic signature”. The person who is signing a document can see his signature is an ordinary signature whereas his signature is invisible is digital signature. This is a basic difference between an ordinary signature and a digital signature. This paper presents you an overview of the digital signature concept.
Digital signatures can be used to authenticate the source of messages. Authentication provides the means of ensuring the identity of a user; a digital time stamp bound to information can establish when it was created; the digital signature itself can be used to prove who sent a document, and prevent the originator repudiating ownership. When ownership of a digital signature secret key is bound to a specific user, a valid signature shows that the message was sent by that user. The importance of high confidence in sender authenticity is especially obvious in a financial context. If a message is digitally signed, any change in the message will invalidate the signature. Furthermore, there is no efficient way to modify a message and its signature to produce a new message with a valid signature, because this is still considered to be computationally infeasible by most cryptographic hash functions.
So digital signature thus helps cryptography to prove itself. Assistance is required from the law to help it attain the functional element of non-repudiation. Once non-repudiation has been achieved, then and only then, can electronic commerce be expected for any constructive purposes?

something worth motivating by abdul kalam..

The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam 's Speech in Hyderabad .

Why is the media here so negative?
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements?
We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a
self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters.
I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.

In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime. Why are we so NEGATIVE? Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? We want foreign T.Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology.

Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance? I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture, when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed India . For her, you and I will have to build this developed India . You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation.
Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.

Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours.
YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke. The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.

YOU say, say and say. What do YOU do about it?

Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give him a name - 'YOURS'.. Give him a face - 'YOURS'. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International best. In Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground links as they are. You pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall irrespective of your status identity… In Singapore you don't say anything, DO YOU? YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai . YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah.
YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in London at 10 pounds (Rs.650) a month to, 'see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone else.'YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop, 'Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. Take your two bucks and get lost.' YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand .
Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo? Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston??? We are still talking of the same YOU. YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the same here in India?

Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay, Mr. Tinaikar, had a point to make. 'Rich people's dogs are walked on the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,' he said. 'And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect the officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels?
In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan.
Will the Indian citizen do that here?' He's right. We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility.
We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick a up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms.
We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity.
This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service to the public.

When it comes to burning social issues like those related to women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse? 'It's the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I alone forego my sons' rights to a dowry.' So who's going to change the system?
What does a system consist of? Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbours, other households, other cities, other communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU. When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away.
Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England . When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.



'ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE INDIA WHAT AMERICA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE TODAY'

Lets do what India needs from us.
