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,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISION

Shri Jayant Sinha ( Minister of State for  Civil Aviation )

Shri Arindam Bhattacharya ( Senior Partner, BCG Henderson Institute )

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Sirs :

I enjoyed reading your article ( Leapfrog Beyond Manufacturing ) in Times of India / Jan 23 , 2017, where you write :

·          Our hypothesis is that digital technologies will power mass services in the 21st century just like industrial technologies powered mass manufacturing
·          
·         The rapid growth of digital trading platforms , is giving rise to new form of enterprises and supply chains
·          
·         Digital technologies can dramatically lower the cost of service delivery
·          
·         Once a digital service is launched via the cloud, the marginal cost of servicing a new customer is virtually zero
·          
·         We believe that India must proceed on a different development journey which accounts for different global circumstances and leverages India’s strengths
·          
·         Digital technologies are impacting economies and industries / services and creating massive opportunities for growth and jobs


I hope your vision gets understood and gets implemented . That is the ONLY HOPE for India  !

You may want to look up my following blogs ( each sent as email to NDA Ministers / Secretaries / MPs / MLAs / Economists / Business Leaders / Editors / TV Anchors etc ) , where , I have echoed your arguments

With Regards,

" BACK FACTORY " OF THE WORLD ?


China is known as the " Factory " of the World


India is known as the  " Back Office " of the World


Can India become the " Back Factory " of the World ?


Wrong question !


Right question is : WHEN can we become the " Back Factory " of the World ?


Answer is " hiding in plain sight " !


This week , an astronaut , sitting in a satellite 400 km above the earth and hurtling through space at 16,000 km per hour , operated a robot on the earth


Earlier , scientists sitting in NASA space centre or  in Shri Harikota space centre , have operated Mars Rovers / MOM ( Mars Orbital Mission ) remotely


From a distance of millions of miles


And soon , astronauts  will be sending emails to earthlings from millions of miles away , using " Space Internet " on their Mobile phones


Invariably , each such team of scientists , comprised Indians !



So , WHEN can our scientists - and software Start Ups - enable Indian workers , sitting in Hyderabad / Chennai etc , to operate / manipulate , machinery in factories of Europe / America / China ?


I believe this can become a reality by 2020 , if Central Government and State Governments , just get out of the way of our scientists / Start Ups and leave them alone !


Then tell them :


" You are our next generation of Freedom Fighters . Free our millions from
poverty / starvation / jobless depression / ignominy / suicides


Like war - ravaged people of North Africa , Indians cannot invade Europe / Australia / Canada , in search of jobs / better life


We depend upon you to bring the jobs to India - jobs such as ,


  *   Operating Machinery in Factories abroad

  *   Controlling Air Traffic at Airports around the World

  *   Operating upon patients in Hospitals , all over

  *   Teaching students in Schools , in remote Africa

  *   Any job that currently requires immediate presence of a worker


And , if you set up a " Back Factory " , you don't need to pay Corporate Income Tax for next 10 years !


Simply register on web site of Income Tax Department as a " Back Factory " owner and file annual " Zero Corporate Tax Return "


When this happens ,


*  Millions of skilled Indian workers will operate factories around the World ,
    sitting in , internet connected " Back Factories " in small Indian towns


*  Foxcon will not need to replace its high-wage Chinese workers with one
    million robots ( as officially announced sometime back )


    At half the wages of those Chinese workers , Indians will operate Foxcon
    factories , all over the World , remotely !


*  " Contract Labour Act " will need to be replaced with " Back Factory " Act


*  " Minimum Wages Act " will need to be scrapped !


*   India will not need to fight with WTO on " Manpower / Service Exports "


*   " Make in India " will morph into " Make from India "



I hope NDA Ministers and members of NITI Aayog will ask , Narayan Murthy / Sam Pitroda / Azim Premji / Sundar Pichai / Satya Nadela / Ray Kurzweil etc :


"  How soon can this be done ? How can you help ? "
