Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

10 Day Deadline ?

DNA ( 30 June ) reports :

In a meeting to review PRAGATI ( Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation ) , Prime Minister Shri Modi , pulled up officials for the large volume of complaints related to the e-commerce sector and asked for taking steps to decisively address issues and an effective follow-up action within next 10 days

There is no doubt , the concerned officers will , in turn , pull-up those e-com companies , all of which are in private sector

Are we barking up the wrong tree ?

If they fail to quickly resolve customer complaints , managers of those private sector firms stand to lose their jobs when their bosses discover that such non-redressal means losing sales and market-share

But citizen's complaints to Government officers are perhaps , a thousand times more !

And when these go un-attended , no one knows and no Government officer need fear losing his job !

But , on the other hand , if they perform and deliver , no citizen will grudge that Rs 1 lakh*crore annual burden that 7th Pay Commission recommendation will impose on the treasury

Whether we like it or not , nothing motivates a person to perform , as much as the " FEAR INCENTIVE " - which is sadly missing in the Government Sector !

The only way this terrible situation can get corrected is to implement following Mobile App ( I SIN > < U SIN ) , repeatedly sent by me to NDA ministers , over past 2 years

What is more , there will be no need to fill-up those 2 lakh planned vacancies in various government departments , over the next 2 years !

Allow me to " prophesize " :

There will be no need to even fill up vacancies arising out of resignations / retirements / terminations / deaths etc , during next 2 years  !

Expect current govt employee strength to shrink from 32 lakhs to 30 lakhs by Dec 2018 !

I   SIN  >  <  U  SIN

That could be the name of an android app ( I Seek It Now > < U Solve It Now )

To be developed by India’s Central Home Ministry for successful implementation of proposed,

“ Delivery  of  Services  Act “

The app will come pre-installed on those mobile phones which Government of India plans to distribute FREE , to some 400 million “ Poor People “ of India , before the 2014 National Election ( and on those 220 million Aakash Tablets )

Issuer will enter the Mobile No and that person’s Aadhar Card No, in a computerized central database , before issuing the phone

Hence , no need to login to the App , whose screen will read,


·                  National Commission for Women

·                  Garbage Clearance

·                  Water Supply

·                  Electricity Supply

·                  Roads Repair

·                  Rationing ( Food Distribution )

·                  Police

·                  Bus Transport

·                  Railways

·                  Post

·                  Employment

·                  Education

·                  Irrigation

·                  Building Permits

·                  Revenue / Land Records

·                  Anti Corruption

·                  Other ……………………………………….etc
(List should not exceed 50)

Touching name of any department name will open a SMS message box where the user will type out his complaint ( in a language of his choice )

There will be option to speak-out and record voice message , for illiterate users

Touching SEND button will transmit the complaint and within minutes, user will receive SMS reply , giving,

·                  Name of Officer responsible

·                  Office Landline No

·                  Mobile No

·                  Email Id

·                  Complaint No

·                  Expected date of solving

Bingo !

Then publish online , a tabulation of departments , arranged in the descending order of the no of complaints received / cleared / pending!

This frugal innovation will bring in Good Governance all over India

Request Nandan Nilekani / Sam Pitroda to help out , even though they may be busy implementing my earlier suggested app , 

“ VotesApp “

I have no doubt that the political party which promises , “ I SIN >< U SIN “ ,  will get voted to power in 2014
