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,

What Skills Are in Demand ?

Hindustan Times ( 14 April 2017 ) carries following news report :

Democracy works on Bhagidari “ :  Modi

Speaking at the 50th anniversary of the Ladies Wing of Indian Merchant Chamber , Shri Narendra Modi said :

“ The government is not an ‘ elected contractor’ but think what you can contribute for the country “

Shri Modi asked if Corporate India can develop an “ Online Platform “ that helps the youth to know which skill is in demand in which country “

Dear Shri Narendrabhai ,

It pains to realize that you had to “ request “ Corporate India to do something which is :

·         Its moral obligation ( besides capable of serving its own “ Self Interest “ ! )

·         Not a rocket science

·         Possible to be developed / launched within 2 months by ( even ) a Start Up !

I urge Corporate India ( - represented by ASSOCHAM / FICCI / CII ), decides to implement my following suggestion to Shri T C Anant , Chief Statistician , Govt of India , on 26 Oct 2015 :

I am willing to help with the database of over 2 million job advertisements ( posted online by some 50,000 Indian Companies over the past 7 years )

  1. With robotization taking over most of the skills future appears to be highly hazy.

    So it needs to be identified by industry experts those skills which cannot be taken over by robots.
