Wah wah…It does nt get bigger than this.One of the best guy in Indian govt and head of state who is a leading

economist and undertands economics better that anyone in Govt has mentioned categorically that if India Inc does

not bring in reservations for backwards(can he please tell us how is son of an IAS officer SC by caste is

backward). How come he transformed from an economist to a politician. He could have balanced himself between both

roles. simple economics says that govt should be facilitator for all the activities in economy. growth is what wud

result by itself. and that growth is for every section of society (sorry Mr.PM, I dont consider people with

specific castes as underpriviledged,although m not an economist but i have common sense). Why on earth you want

bring those people into most competitive institutions of countyr who dont have the skill and more importantly will

to work. Jsut becoz he was born in a family of some caste does nt make him eligible to get a quota in IIM, IIT and

now private sector.Imagine what chaos wud persist if this quota lets in people who dont know anyhting.They wud be

sitting and doing nothing.COmpanies,IITs and IIMs are not responsible for clearing the basic fundamentals of some

guy who studied in a GOVT school. Mr.PM, see the way I exagerated GOVT.Any Tom Dick and Harry wud tell u that Govt

school at primary level are good for nothing.WHen u cant educate somebody at primary level and claim of helping

them, it is no help sir. You are rather cheating upon everyone.The backwards, the generals or forwards whatever u

call it and yourself. You are avoiding ur responsibilty of providing primary education and basic health in

country.and punishing others for ur own mistakes.

Sunil Bharti Mittal may have made big bucks out of the mobile telephony revolution in India, but the man says it was a saga of struggle, fight and the "mother of all battles." When he began his entrepreneurial venture in 1985, he was "ignored" and "laughed at" thereafter, before the "fight" erupted in the telecom sector leading to what he calls "mother of all battles" from which he came out "fairly successful," he said. Sharing his thoughts with students and faculty of Indian Institute Management, Bangalore, at a convocation function, the Chairman and Group Managing Director of Bharti Enterprises said: "I am a new age entrepreneur. I believe I represent the changing face of India." "When I came out of college in 1976, I was told by all my friends and people generally older and guiding me in my hometown in Ludhiana that the pole-positions…the grand-stand positions have already been taken up by those who mattered." There were large business houses, and the public sector had a huge grip, he recalled. For a young, struggling entrepreneur with very little capital, who has just come out of college, the space was indeed very limited, he said. "But somehow the heart was not willing to accept. And one had to push on and push forward with every little opportunity that one got in one's life." Mittal said the period — 1976 to 1985 — was a period of great struggle, of great pain but one of great learning. "Learning that I could not take from B-school because I went straight to business after university… I picked up on the streets. I learnt my lessons on the streets and at every opportunity, tried to assimilate, gather, absorb some of the practices that were required to create an enterprise." He said he saw his first battle with "big boys" in 1985-86 when he first launched India's first push-button telephones. "My romance with telecom started in 1985." "Mahatma Gandhi once said: 'at first, they ignore you'; these were the times when I was being ignored." "It's important that at this stage you be ignored. Because spotlight at an early time of your lifecycle does not give you any extra advantage but certainly puts you at a great disadvantage." "Gandhiji said: 'then they laugh at you.' In 1992, Mittal said he applied for mobile licence — India's first attempt to provide mobile telephone services. "I felt we had the passion to deliver India's first mobile phone services. Many thought otherwise. We threw our hat in the ring." He said 1993, 1994 and 1995 saw some major litigations around this area. Our first licence was awarded in 1995. "Bharti got a licence to provide mobile telephony in Delhi. People were still laughing. Because this was supposed to be a business with very deep pockets." It was only later that he realised that this business needed "large monies". Those were difficult times, Mittal said. "When it came to providing mobile services in the rest of the country… it saw the awakening of all those who missed in round one." "Everybody who missed out in the first round… large industrial houses to many others came and jumped in round two. Bidding that happened in that round edged out almost all entrepreneurial initiatives. The bid went at Rs 85,000 crore and this was in 1996." "Most of the bids were picked up by people who had less knowledge about this business," Mittal said, adding, Bharti then expanded slowly picking up the circles of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Chennai followed by Punjab and Kolkata, among others. "Then the juggernaut (Bharti) started rolling," he said. "Then they fight you. Then the big fight erupted in the telecom arena. They had ignored us, they had laughed at us and the fight had begun. And we were willing to fight this battle out because it was truly the mother of all battles." Mittal said the company believed that "if the business is about people and customers and not about money and technology, it thought it can win the war." "After three years of fight, we came out fairly successful out of this. As Gandhiji said, those who try hard with lot of passion, eventually win."

The so called schemes of govt of India for upliftment are nothing but farce. All the money assigned to such schemes is shown spent an all major reports by govt to gain polpularity but the effect is invisible.I am unable to find out a single successful scheme of govt which has helped in upliftment of poors abd rural India.(See the way I treat poor different from rural).Be it food for work or even flood relief funds, everything is shared between ministers,officials and their selected ones.Corruption is irrespective of state,religion and caste.everyone knows that if u want something,u gotta share a piece with another fellow wild dog. The vision at top of hierarchy is clear and may be well intented but implementation is poorest coz by the time you reach at the bottom of pyramid, the size of pie is smaller and number of people to share it increase tremendously. Never
The problem is clearly in the chain.There are so many leakages.
The solution is that people who are working in various ministries, who make the databases and are the helm of affairs in implementation process,they should clearly differente between rural and poor.Generally village is called poor.Wether it's Income Tax or any deptt,they dont differentiate between poor and rural.There are very very rich landlords in same village where you find small peasants who actually need help.Now the lazy bastards (read bureaucrats) who work in top offices, don't want to work at all.They would give details of some village without even visiting. I dont understand this attitude.If an IIM guy can drive a bicycle into villages to know the actual scenario, why not these officials use office cars or jeeps to do the same.The level of difficulty in both Civil Services and CAT is almost same.The case of Income Tax is really funny.Indian Govt doesnt tax agriculture income. It's ok if they dont.But that exemption from I.T. is being misused tremendously all over.Big landlords give cheques to black money owners and take cash plus their charges.
The best part is that farmers are not supposed to file I.T. return as well. What a fun we make of ourselves.First we encourage black money holders, then we tell them it's bad.It's ok to exempt small farmers but what about big landowners?If they file an I.T. return, we would be aware atleast about the money that came in and it would definitely reduce the size of the parallel economy of black money.
Anyways coming back to govt's claims based on spending that they sent out (or into their own Bank accounts hehe), I had a funny experience. I wrote to Punjab govt about the poor performance of Information technology in Punjab and literally no step being taken to encourage IT by govt.I put across facts and figures to compare Punjab's performance with Pune in the field of IT, a copy of this letter is still with me.Copies were marked to various senior officials and CM of punjab.After 4 days, I got a letter from a very senior official(I wont name him fearing Kickbacks for which CM punjab is popular hehe).He gave me instruction to clarify and correct my data.I had made big mistake quoting Punjab's IT export as Rs.150 crore when he claimed it to be Rs.160 crore.What a grave mistake I made when Pune alone exports software and services to the tune of Rs.6000 crore.God Bless My Punjab but I feel sorry for my Punjab and also the full army of Engineers which the 3rd grade colleges(like my own) approved by ex CM Punjab, Badal, would feel the heat when you would be out in market in front of people whom u cant fool like your teahcers in Engg college.

Anyways this guy, Capt Amrinder Singh (an educated cheat of Punjab as opposed to Badal who is illiterate Thief) claims to have added thousands of Megawatts capacity of power generation in Punjab. In reality it is only a little above 100 MW. This guy has literally shown his influence over Media by almost being a screen guy on a channel called Punjab Today which always claims many things on his behalf. Sometimes watching this Channel, you would realize that News reader is trying to garnish CM's remarks. Uff Mr. Captain, we expected a lot from you. but u are trying to feed us with your statements. You have not done anything to fulfill power needs of Punjab like your Akali counterpart(Both of them are no different). We are purchasing power from other states at as high as Rs.7.72 per unit but giving it free to farmers. Learn some economics you bastards.The more you give free of cost, more you screw the industry. The usual cut of a day has already started which was supposed to satrt in May. One month in advance. Then 2 days off for all industry units (imagine this for an IT firm) which wud sacrifice for the paddy soing which wud not be at all productive

A Letter to CM Punjab

April 18, 2006

Respected Sir,

I want to bring to your kind notice that there is rampant corruption going on in every department in Punjab. Yesterday only at DTO office in Ludhiana I faced many corrupt officers who are not scared of asking for money in front of public. I saw that 5 to 6 officer or clerks were always standing outside the offices but when it was time to go, they were punctual to leave office. People like me went there every time and came back even after bribing them but no work was done. I know u and your govt officials would not work without hand greasing but now it has become difficult with that also. Officers and clerks (even peons) under your regime are so lethargic that it is tough to get work done. People lose time in such things and your officials would not let them go without harassing the hell out of their head.

I want to make mention about one Mrs.Kiranjit Kaur who is clerk in DTO office. She likes to see people fold hands in front of her. She has some kind of patronage from Mr.DTO. I am not aware that if she has your Aashirwaad also. In case you don’t have any connection with her, please conduct a secret raid on her house you will find more money than you have in your Moti Mahal. But if you have any relation, I guess I am addressing the wrong ears.
I am afraid you would ever check your email yourself and your PA and other people who are close to you would delete the email asap. They would abuse me. But you know I have to fulfill my dharma by bringing this to your notice. Anything which happens to me now is your responsibility. Although no use reminding you.

Thankfully,

Yours Truly,

Punjab
