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,

Needed : A 3 Month Plan for 3 C


Hindustan Times ( 29 July 2016 ) carries headline :

" Not 5 , prepare 15 year development plan : Modi tells NITI Aayog "


The report quotes PM Shri Modi as saying :

" Main prayog karne wala insaan hoon. Mujhme prayog karne ki himmat hain

  { I am willing to experiment }

  The time for incremental change that was the norm across the World for quite some time, is now over .

   Current age requires transformational change

   Intentions ( niyat ) of policymakers are even more important than the policies ( niti ) , themselves "



To this , NITI Aayog CEO , Shri Amitabh Kant added :

The Prime Minister asserted that the government has the courage and the ability to deliver transformational change for bettering the lives of the people "



Now I wish Shri Modiji and Shri Kantji , would just stop their cars , while on way to office and ask any pedestrian :


" Bhaiyya , tumhari bhalai ke liye , subse pahile kya kare ? "

 ( Brother , for your benefit , what is the first thing you want me to do ? )



I am sure 99 % of these people will say :

" Get rid of Corruption "



Times of India ( 28 July 2016 ) reports :

" Government has recently reconstituted eight working groups of secretaries, asking them to come up with at least two projects or schemes that can be implemented within 3  months . Each group has been asked to submit its
report by 16 August "



I hope one of these groups comes up with a scheme ( 3 C / Conquer Cancer of Corruption ? ) , based on my following oft-repeated suggestion


It can be implemented in 3 months !



*  Discontinue paper-based currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000


 *  Introduce plastic currency notes of Rs 500 / 1,000 which are embedded with RFID sensors


 *  Assign to each such note, a IP V 6.0 address , linked to its unique note number


 *  Set up a IT-enabled Technology Platform which will constantly monitor any accumulation of Rs 500 / 1000
     RFID embedded notes in excess of Rs 15 Lakh within an area of ONE square meter


Not only this IT-enabled Technology Platform show up all cabinets / lockers having such accumulations ( on the

GPS maps of IT Department's mobile app - BLACK-MAIL ) but it will also provide irrefutable proof of violation of the

 proposed limit of Rs 15 lakh worth of currency which can be held by a person at any time


And , a frugal extension of this technology will even create a dynamic CURRENCY MAP of entire country by tracking

the movement of each and every currency note ( Rs 500 / 1000 ) , throughout its life !


And the CURRENCY DENSITY of any State / City / Street  / Area / Building / Floor !


No need for an army of inspectors , additional administrative machinery , search-warrants , " Panch-Nama "  !


No chance of frivolous litigations on part of the so-called " Aggrieved " !


I do hope , our policy makers will cease this opportunity of a life time ( especially in view of forthcoming elections )


And Shri Modi will be assured the whole-hearted support of all political parties by announcing :


"  Cash held by political parties in their offices or at the residences of their Members , will be EXEMPT from provisions of scrutiny / seizure / accountability "


Now this " Prayog " will be far from " Incremental "


It will be nothing short of " Transformational "


It will be " Unprecedented "


And who else other than Shri Modi has the " Himmat " ( courage ) to " prayog ( experiment ) " with this ?
