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,

Constructive Criticism ?



During his “ Man ki Baat “ yesterday , Shri Narendra Modiji said :



“I am also influenced by good and bad things like the aam aadmi (common man),” Modi said during his monthly radio show, Mann Ki Baat. “Constructive criticism strengthens democracy. For an aware nation, an awakened nation, this churning is very important.”



But , how do you get a 1000 million citizens to give such a “ feedback “ to the government ?



They can neither write “ snail mail “ nor “ e mail “ !



But they can send an “ objective assessment “ of the government’s  “ performance “ if the government were to make available on their smart phone , a Mobile App ( RUN – Rate Us Now ) , as suggested in my following blog ( Figures in GREEN denote my rating after 3 YEARS of NDA regime , as on 29 May 2017 ) :

What  are  the  Chances  (  Figures in RED as on 18  May  2014  ) 





 Here are the " Chances " which I attach to fulfillment of each of BJP's following poll promises ( as mentioned in its Manifesto ) , by the end of 3rd year :


Ensure minimization of Black Money and setting up of a Task
    Force  ......... ( 50 % / 50 % )


Special Courts to stop hoarding and black-marketing. ( 100 % / 0 % )


Set-up a Price-Stabilization Fund.......( 100 %  /  25 % )


Develop labour-intensive Manufacturing ...  (  10 %  / 0 % )


Empowering youth for Self-Employment...  ( 25 %10  % )


Transforming Employment Exchanges to Career Centers   ( 10%  /  0 % )


Eliminating corruption thru E-Governance... ( 10 % / 50 % )


Rationalization / Simplification of Tax-regime.. ( 20 % / 50 % )


Insulate intelligence agencies from political intervention and
    interference..... ( 10 % )


Strengthening physical infrastructure with expediting work on
    freight and Industrial Corridors..... ( 15 %50 % )


Setting up Gas-Grids and National Optical Fiber Network up to
    the village level.......  (  30 %  /  30 % )


Quadrilateral project for Bullet Trains..... (  5  %  / 5 % )


Establishment of National E - Library.....  (  40  %  / 0 % )


Implementation of National Education Policy .. ( 50 % / 20 % )


Evolving further the PPP model to PPPP model .. ( 50 %50 % )


Building 100 Mega-Cities................  (  0  %  /  0  % )




Did I miss out any  ?


Parallel with whatever the Pollsters may - or may not - do , it would be worthwhile for BJP Tech-Team , to come out with a Mobile App ( to be named , " RUN - Rate Us Now " ? ), to find out what voters feel , on a 5 point scale


Or , an App that would let the voters prioritize among various promises

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

Dear Shri  Narendrabhai :


Such a Mobile App is THE  ONLY  WAY  to enable millions of ordinary citizens to provide a hassle-free unbiased  “ Constructive Criticism “ , in a hurry


It is also the only way to silence those “ head-in-the-sky “ PUNDITS  !
