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,

ENABLE ELON TO CATALYSE !



Business Line ( 16 June ) carries following news report :




“ Tesla seeks import relief till it builds e-cars in India “


In a tweet on Thursday, Musk said :


“ Tesla is in discussion with the government of India requesting temporary relief on import penalties / restrictions until a local factory is built “





THIS IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY WHICH WE MUST NOT MISS  !



WHY  ?


Because , only Elon has the imagination /  resources and the passion , to transform the transport scenario of India by implementing the following initiatives of our government :


·         6 million e-cars by 2022 ( acting as a CATALYST for Indian Car Industry )

·          
·         All e-cars by 2030

·          
·         Small swappable Li-ion batteries for 3-wheelers

·          
·         EV charging Stations based on Tesla’s Solar Roof Top Tiles

·          
·         PowerWall ( solar ) storage solutions for domestic use / grid storage

·          
·         Solar roof top tiles ( to replace Solar panels ? )

·          
·         Solar Panel roofs for cars ( translating ISRO design into reality )

·          
·         New Urban Transport Policy



HOW  TO  PERSUADE  ELON  ?


By agreeing to set off  “ import penalties ( import duties ? ) “ in exchange for Elon accepting :


#  “ Export “ commitment for equivalent amount in 3 years


#  Accepting the following PMP ( phased manufacturing program ) , as suggested in my following blog ( earlier sent on 24 May 2017 , as email to NDA ministers / Secretaries and to Elon , as well ) :






Dear Elon :



For immediate approval ( in 24 hours ) , pl submit your PMP as follows :



2017-18  :

Set up factory next to Mundra Port ( Gujarat ) to facilitate world-wide exports




2018-19  :

Source locally , Tyres / Chasis / Body / Electricals  / Windows / Dashboards ..etc




2019-20   :

Manufacture in your own factory , Li-ion Battery  / Wall-mounted Powerwall Storages /
Solar Roof Tiles




2020-21  :

Manufacture  RFID Sensors - Cameras – GPS locators




2021-22   :

Augmented Reality  Devices  /  Autonomous Navigation Devices ( Radar – Lidar  )





Now , it is very possible that neither Shri Gadkariji , nor Shri Goyalji , would be satisfied with such a slow PMP , spread out over a period of 5 years



They may , well request  Elon to cut it down to 3 years



And , if they do, I get a feeling that Elon would telescope the entire PMP , in 2 YEARS !



After all , Elon is the biggest proponent of :






Dear Shri Nitin Gadkariji :

Only Elon has the passion to implement YOUR dream


It is time to send him an SMS ( ala Shri Narendrabhai ‘ s SMS to Shri Ratan Tata to relocate NANO at Sanand ) , which reads :

“ Welcome to India
