Artificial Intelligence : Brahma , Vishnu or Mahesh ?



In Hindu mythology ,


·          Brahma  is the  CREATOR


·          Vishnu   is the  PRESERVER


·          Mahesh  is the  DESTROYER,

of the Universe .



Of late , there is a fierce debate as to the role of AI in this Universe


No one doubts that AI will CREATE things we have not even dreamed of


Over the past one month , AI is helping in PRESERVING the computer networks against Cyber Attacks


Then there are ominous indications that AI may even DESTROY the civilization !




Hindustan Times ( 01 July ) carries following news snippet :



“ Hackers can guess a user’s passwords , PINS by monitoring their thoughts , according to scientists who suggest that brainwave-sensing headsets need better security. Electro-encephalograph ( EEG ) headsets allow users to control robotic toys and video games with the mind



An earlier report ( Business Line / 28 June ) reads ( extract ) :


·         Scientists have developed a new ‘ mind reading AI system that can decode COMPLEX HUMAN THOUGHTS , just by measuring brain activity


·         Marcel Just ( from Carnegie Mellon University ) , said :

“ We have finally developed a way to SEE THOUGHTS of that complexity… The discovery of this correspondence between THOUGHTS and BRAIN ACTIVATION patterns tells us what the THOUGHTS are built of “



·         By measuring the activation in each brain system, the PROGRAMME can tell WHAT TYPE OF THOUGHTS are being contemplated



·         This advance makes it possible for the first time to DECODE THOUGHTS , containing several concepts




The rate at which technology is advancing , it is a matter of 2 / 3 years before :



·         
Those sensors strapped to the head and picking up brainwave patterns , get replaced by human fingers touching the screen of smart phones ( replacement of headsets till Smart Wrist Bands replace those smart phones ? )


·         Smart phones are configured to relay the picked-up “ patterns / thoughts “ to a CENTRAL SERVER for analysis / deciphering those “ thoughts “ on a scale of 1 to 10 ( 1 being “ Extremely Anti – Social / Violent “ to 10 being “ Highly Beneficial to Mankind “ )


·         Smart phone manufacturers ( later on , Wrist-band Manufacturers ) are mandated to build their devices with above-mentioned features )


·         Mobile Service Providing Services are re-configured not to service those phones / wrist bands which are not embedded with ARIHANT


To know how this ARIHANT scheme will SAVE the World from being annihilated by AI , read :






01    July  2017


An Instinct for Survival ?



You may also call it :  Competition ,  Oh What a Wonderful  Thing  !


Times of India ( 30 June 2017 ) carries a news report titled :




“ GPS-based fares to replace meters in all kaali-peelis soon “



Highlights :


·         Download the mobile app “ Aamchi Drive “


·         Enter the DROP LOCATION to get an estimate of how much the ride would COST and how LONG it would take for the cab to arrive


·         The GPS enables you to LOCATE taxis in the vicinity and once a cabbie confirms your ride, he will be provided only your name and contact number , not your DESTINATION


·         Once you get into the cab , the driver will get the DESTINATION and he will have to ACCEPT the ride


·         The trip will be MONITORED through a CENTRAL CONTROL ROOM over GPS, so there is NO CHANCE of METER TAMPERING


·         Even if you do not have the App, you can give your mobile number to the driver and register for a single ride , for which an E-RECEIPT is sent on your smartphone at the END OF THE TRIP


·         Unlike OLA and UBER , there will be NO SURGE PRICING ! The drivers will ply as per RTO-approved fares only





I am glad the owners of Kaali-peeli woke up in good time to read :




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


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


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


I believe , in Mumbai alone there are 38,000 Kaali Peeli taxies



All over the country , there could be LAKHS !



If ALL these LAKHS were to work under “ Aamchi Drive “ ( One Country , One App ? ), that could give OLA / UBER , a run for their money !



It could be END of SURGE PRICING !



I suppose the Kaali Peeli owners realized in good time that if they fail to “ reform and compete “ , they would meet the same fate as that of Air India !

Resumes Exchange : A Job Portal Earthquake ?



In April 2016 , I read a book :

WHAT’s MINE  is  YOURS  ( Authors : Rachel Botsman / Roo Rogers )


As I continued reading , I could not help making notes in margins ( see below )
-      notes re my own concept of “ Sharingof Resumes among Employers / Recruiters , as briefly outlined in :




I have no doubt that it is a matter of a few months before some Start Up translates this concept into reality . I would be happy to help


With regards

 ,
Hemen  Parekh


30  June  2017
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page   XV ( Introduction Chapter )
·         Without an offline “ Search Engine “ , ownership of “ text “ resumes on hard disk, has no value . Hence , mere sharing / swapping of TEXT resumes cannot interest anyone !



Page   XIX
·         Employer ( and Recruitment Agencies as well ), have no “ NECESSITY “ to exchange text resumes lying “ unused “ , on their hard disks . And no one will “ pay “ for “ buying “ old text resumes lying on someone’s hard disk !

·         The only reason, they would want to be a MEMBER of “ ResumesExchange “ , would be the GuruSearch ( Resume Search Engine , developed by us ) , that would be to turn unsearchable TEXT resumes into a “ SEARCHABLE DATABASE

·          That would be the only motivation



Page   XX
·         ResumesExchange , if quickly developed and implemented in India , could get replicated elsewhere

·         I have started giving away the Source Codes of my old job portals ( so far 3 takers )



Page   XXI
·         Diagram showing > Jobseekers depositing resumes on several job portals > All employers sourcing resumes from job portals, but NOT sharing among one another .  ResumesExchange will enable them to exchange resumes

·         Should we rename , “ Resume Exchange “  to  “ Resume Synchronize “ ?  Since , we wish to convey that you are not giving up your text resumes – only synchronizing your “ resume database “ with ALL registered users’ databases ! Sounds much more appealing !



Page   8
·         I have repeatedly said that SAME ( or same type ) text resumes get downloaded from job portals , again & again – even when an Employer’s hard disk is full of similar resumes – only because these are NOT SEARCHABLE !

·         By not allowing Employers to download its ONLINE SEARCH ENGINE , job portals ensure that Employers keep coming back , again & again !



  
Page   44
·         In Jainism , there is a VOW / PRACTICE of “ ASTEYA “, which requires a person to use / consume , just MINIMUM of EVERYTHING required to survive !



Page   53
·         If ResumesExchange ( or ResumeSynchronize.com ) gets launched , can we expect the Employers to rally around it , in order to get out of the clutches of Naukri / MonsterIndia / Timesjobs  ?

·         What could it mean to Employment Scenario ( especially to millions of jobless ) , if 50 MILLION resumes are on hard disks of 10 MILLION , medium / large Employers ?




Page   55
·         For my vision of W3F ( World Wide Work Federation ), I have yet to find a “ Platform “ and create a “ Network “ of Indian Start Ups

·         I am hoping that, one of these Start Ups , will succeed in launching “ ResumesExchange.com “ and that becomes a platform

·         It is just 5 / 6 weeks since I started my campaign ( ALLOW  ME  TO  SHARE ), and got 2 / 3 persons excited



Page   56
·         Naukri / MonsterIndia / Timesjobs etc are “ Elitists “ , charging HUGE annual Subscription ( Rs 3 / 4 lakhs ) to Employers for posting jobs and searching / downloading resumes

·         By not allowing Employers to download their “ RESUME  SEARCH  ENGINE  “, they ensure that Employers continue as Subscribers , year after year

·         RESUMESEXCHANGE.COM WILL MAKE THEM IRRELEVANT !

·         When Employers can exchange resumes , they don’t need Naukri , making ResumesExchange such a weapon

·         I suppose ( at least ) medium size Employers , who need to hire 2 / 5 persons each year , would have “ Common Interest “ of saving those fancy Subscription Fees




Page   57
·         Full / functional revival of RecruitGuru.com, is stuck due to few remaining “ errors “ , despite Kartavya’s efforts

·         I am trying to motivate Dinesh / Srinivasan etc to “ Collaborate “ and remove these errors

·         Without full revival of this “ Parsing Software “ , it is not possible to develop ResumesExchange

·         May be in my promo email ( ALLOW  ME  TO  SHARE  ) , I should pose this challenge to s/w geeks of India , with a request to share their findings with ALL . I should consult Mr Nagle for help




Page   59
·         We need to create such an “ Open Infrastructure “ for W3F ( World Wide Work Federation ) to succeed



Page   72
·         ResumesExchange would fall under this category

·         [ Author : Redistribution Markets > Social networks enable USED or PRE-OWNED goods to be redistributed from where they are not needed to somewhere or someone where they are , fueling the second type of collaboration consumption , redistribution markets….

Often exchanges are conducted between ANONYMOUS STRANGERS, but sometimes the market-places connect people who know each other…………….

Regardless of the specifics of the exchange, a redistribution market encourages RE-USING and RE-SELLING old items rather than throwing them out, and also significantly reduces waste ]




Page   73
·         Once ResumesExchange catches on , no Employer / Recruiter, will need to go back to Naukri / MonsterIndia / Timesjobs etc, again & again , in order to download “ more “ resumes , thereby “ saving “ Subscription Fees



Page   74
·         Saving “ of Subscription fees , will be “ Intended “ consequence for employers joining ResumesExchange, but “ Jobs for All “ could well turn out to be an “ Unintended Consequence “ , if Resume Databases on  MILLIONS of hard disks get “ Synchronized “ , each carrying millions of SEARCHABLE RESUMES


·         A participating Employer of ResumesExchange , may , in one year , donate ( say ) 1,000 resumes lying UNUSED on his hard disk, but , he may receive ONE MILLION or even TEN MILLION , in return ! Hence , it is in his self-interest to join



Page   75
·         We must recognize / anticipate that large companies are unlikely to join ResumesExchange, in the beginning .


·         Our focus should be to rope-in MSME ( some 20 Million ) who need to hire , just 2 / 4 employees , each year – and therefore , cannot “ afford “ high Subscription fees of Naukri


·         As far as ResumesExchange goes, it is NOT an exchange of resumes between TWO strange ( employers ) directly.


·         As far as creation of “ TRUST “ is concerned , we will upload a “ Starting Database “ of a few lakh resumes , which a “ Joinee “ gets on very first day of joining !




Page   76
·         For Employers / Recruiters , Resume Search on Naukri, is the “ Conventional Shopping “ – where ( I believe ) , they can “ choose “ , but download at a time, no more than 5 resumes .


·         As against this , on ResumesExchange, there is NO CHOICE , but they can download LAKHS of resumes , DAILY ! We would have the critical mass


·         A “ SYNCHRONIZATION STATUS “ panel will tell him,
#    how many he uploaded
#    how many he downloaded


·         Since , we propose to build into the OFFLINE TOOL , a RESUME SEARCH ENGINE, users will be able to “ search “ , several thousand resumes on VERY FIRST DAY , and get satisfied with quality



Page   77
·         I too , am inclined for “ ResumeSynchronize.com “ , instead of ResumeExchange.com .  Indeed , “ Synchronization of Resume Databases “ , is what will happen


·         Only , in our case , we have no means to check the “ Quality “ of resumes being uploaded




Page   80
·         There is nothing “ local “ about ResumeSync.com



Page   81
·         For ResumeSync.com , very likely this core group could be hundreds of medium size RECRUITMENT AGENCIES , who today, depend upon Naukri for their supply of resumes. They would be delighted if they can find all the “ suitable “ resumes on their OWN hard disks – and , thereby , avoid paying subscription to Naukri



Page  82
·         Dynamically increasing “ List of Subscribers “ ( counter ) is a must

·         How many joinees ? ( subscriber list )

·         How many resumes did each donate yesterday ?
·         Total cumulative donations



Page  83
·         This is precisely the logic behind ResumeSync

·         There are , may be , 100 MILLION resumes lying UNUSED ( because Un-Searchable )  on a million hard disks



Page  84
·         ResumeSync is not merely meant to be a BLACK HOLE that sucks up all resumes , from every hard disk , like a Vacuum Cleaner , but it adds VALUE to those “ TEXT RESUMES “ , by parsing and converting those into a STRUCTURED and SEARCHABLE database ,

And,

Then “ Re-distributes “ those to the participants
This “ Parsing “ is the KEY to converting what is essentially TRASH into useful stuff



Page   86
·         My BIG DATA analytic project for 4 million job advts , downloaded over past 8 years , is to be able to PREDICT :

WHO ( which Company ) , will advertise

WHAT job ( Vacancy ) , and

WHEN  ( date / month  )


·         On Uber ( share – a – taxi ) app, you can see cars available for hiring , in your locality – and , even their movements in real time !



Page   88
·          Can we build-in a software constraint , so that the minimum number of resumes that can be uploaded ( ie; synced ) at any given time, is 100 ? -  to ensure , minimum of “ Reciprocity “ ?



Page  89
·         It will be a fact in ResumeSync , some small employers may “ contribute “ no more than 5 / 10 resumes in a month , but continue to download ( through SYNC button ) , millions ! So , an employer who is capable of donating ( say ) 1,000 resumes per day , may wonder :

“ Why should I be a member of ResumeSync ? “


Ans :

“ Those 1,000 per day and may be 50,000 already lying earlier on your hard disk , are of NO USE to you , since these are NOT SEARCHABLE .


Only our TOOL can parse these and make these searchable, provided you join ResumeSync 



Page  91
·         Does this mean , on ResumeSync , we publish :

WHO has donated HOW MANY resumes , so far ? ( in descending order ? )

Such transparency is desirable




Page   92
·         Job Portals ( like Naukri ) are such a middleman – but , between jobseekers and employers




Page   97
·         One may say :

Why should any employer want to have millions of resumes on his hard disk ( ie; OWN ), if he can ACCESS the same, at any time on Naukri ?


That would be true , if there was no subscription fee !


Like when I am listening to music ( Youtube ) on iPad , I am not paying anything !  So , why keep ( OWN ) cassettes / CDs ?



Sure , if Naukri were to become a FREE service, ( for Employers ) , no employer would feel interested in joining ResumeSync !



Turning this around , if ResumeSync were to make it possible to find all the resumes that you ever need on your hard disk , then why would you want Naukri ?




Page  98
·         Employment for greater number of people “ > Could that become an “ Unintended Consequence “ of ResumeSync ?


·         If it becomes VERY EASY to “ find and hire “ , a person you want, from among those millions of resumes , would you be more tempted to go ahead and appoint him ?


·         I suspect many MSME put off their hiring decisions , only because it is too much of a hassle



Page   100
·         This is where ResumeSync differs



Page   104
·         Since “ RESUME   RATER  “ will be an integral part of SYNC, each resume will have a SCORE and resumes ( in each FUNCTION category ) , will get arranged in descending order of this SCORE .


·         Beyond that , we could incorporate a feature whereby , every time an Employer “ Shortlists “ any resume ( after searching his hard disk ) , the “ Number of Times shortlisted “ appears next to each resume . That number would indicate its popularity



·          

·         See writing on our page “ Job Suggest “ on





Page   105
·         One day soon, will these toy-rental services become obsolete with arrival of Virtual Reality and Holograms and Hepatic devices , through which you can feel , manipulate toys , thousands of miles away ?


Page   106
·         Read my today’s [ 25 April 2016 ]  blog : No Use Fighting





·         It is all about turning 500,000 sq km of floating plastic called “ Great Pacific Garbage Patch “ , into a LAND MASS ( floating ) , to house 126 million migrants, through technological innovations ( 2 times the area of UK , which has a population of 63.6 million )




Page   108
·         How do we decide,who can become a MEMBER of ResumeSync, and who cannot ?


·         To keep things simple , we can insist that the company ( not individual ) registering, must have been a Registered Corporate Subscriber of Naukri / MonsterIndia / TimesJobs etc., so that we know , he must have downloaded a number of resumes from these sites in the past.


·         That number could be around 50,000 large / medium companies . These are also the parties who will be most interested to join , in order to save subscription fees



Page   109
·         Can  www.GlobalRecruiter.net , ( properly revived by one of the Start Ups and vigorously promoted ) , spawn around itself, hundreds of “ Partner Web sites “ ?


·         Could this , eventually rope in other types of members ( Government / ISP / TV Channels / MSP etc ) , to become W3F ? Jobs for All  =  Peace  on  Earth



Page   110
·         This is same as some large subscribers of Naukri, having a million resumes on his hard disk , but thoroughly UNSEARCHABLE , since these are plain TEXT !


·         It is high subscription fees of Naukri ( Rs 4 lakh / year ) which deters 20 million MSME to use it



Page   111
·         Will USP of ResumeSync spread among Recruitment Agencies / Employers , by such word of mouth ?


·         I have heard a lot of people talking about the great utility of UBER & OLA


·         A member of ResumeSync, actually becomes “ Owner “ of millions of Resumes , without having to “ pay “ for them , by way of job portal subscription


Page   112

·         If , in the beginning , we focus on membership of Employers ( some 50,000 +) who are already “ Subscribers “ of some or other job portals ; and therefore – have, on their hard disks, few hundred to few thousand TEXT resumes , then they will not feel like “ FREE RIDERS “ and feel GUILTY , because they know that , they too are donating some resumes. They are also “ giving and sharing “



·         All the resumes ( whether own or downloaded ) in ResumeSync, are always immediately “ accessible “




Page   114
·         Punch line >  ResumeSYNC : All the resumes that you will ever need  !



Page   115
·         Most certainly , ResumeSYNC , has the potential to disrupt traditional job portals , by making them , irrelevant ! – but partially only , since Employers will still need to post their JOB ADVERTISEMENTS and jobseekers will still need to go / search those jobs and “ Apply Online “



·         But then it is also likely that jobseekers may get many interview calls directly – without applying – from members of ResumeSYNC  !! . They will email their latest / revised resumes DIRECTLY


·         DANGER of RESUMESYNC 


Very Senior Executives ( VP / GM level ) , generally do NOT submit their resumes on job portals but send as emails to Headhunters .


So , if a headhunter becomes a member of ResumeSYNC, even resumes of such VERY SENIOR executives will find their way onto the hard disks of thousands of members ! We need to address this problem





Page  116
·         Another punch line >  Hire all you want : Without subscribing to Jon Portals !


·         Recently , Anand Mahindra said the same thing !



Page   118
·         Of course , for altogether different reasons, in 1966 , IBM ( India ) would not “ SELL “ its model 1401 computers in India . At L&T , we had to “ lease “ it from IBM ( - and those were reconditioned / imported machines – not manufactured in India )


·         Recruitment Process Outsourcing ( RPO ) , owes its existence to Employers not having HR RESOURCES of their own



Page  119
·         If ResumeSYNC , not only parses resumes to create a STRUCTURED / SEARCHABLE database , but also generates PROFILE GRAPHS for each resume , then it will provide a different kind of EXPERIENCE to recruiters


·         SaaS instead of enterprise-based software & of course CLOUD services , instead of owning your own servers




Page   124
·         Same as saying : For every job , somewhere out there , is an IDEAL candidate and for every jobseeker , somewhere there, is a PERFECT job . Problem lies in each finding the other !


·         All other things being equal, employers prefer LOCAL candidates, and vice versa . In crowded cities , jobseekers would be willing to sacrifice / compromise ( salary / title etc ) , for a nearby job



Page   126

·         RESUMESYNC IS ALL ABOUT THIS “ REDISTRIBUTION “



Page   127
·         An employer posts a job advt on a job portal and in next 3 days , receives 300 resumes .


·         After screening / interviewing process of 4 weeks , ONE person gets appointed . Thereafter , rest 299 resumes are not “ needed “ or seldom “ re-looked “



Page   128
·         Over a period of few years , ResumeSYNC may have resumes of MOST of the jobseekers ( - and those who are not actively seeking a job ) .


·         Every resume gets “ obsolete “ within a year . Can we think of some method , whereby any person can directly “ DEPOSIT “ his latest resume on ResumeSYNC , when it overwrites the old one ?




Page   129
·         After a few months , a member employer of ResumeSYNC , may not need to go to a job portal to download fresh resumes


·         Another punch line > ResumeSYNC : the instantaneous mass synchronizer of resumes



Page   130
·         We must find a method to record / log, each & every resume-search that a member ( of ResumeSYNC ) conducts on his hard disk, using “ Guru Search “ search engine . That massive data can be analysed ( using BIG DATA software ) .



·          That will tell us – and the World – “ a database of employers’ intentions “ , ie; what kind of candidates are employers searching for ? A Job Market Analysis , up to date !



Page   132
·         I have started this ( giving back ) early – at age 82 !

·         I started to experience this !




Page   134
·         Concept of “ Partner Web site “ of  www.GlobalRecruiter.net , is very similar



Page   135
·         In ResumeSYNC too, all that a member has to do , is to click on “ SEND / RECEIVE “ button ( like in Outlook ) and watch “ Synchronization Status “ panel . We are not in the picture !



Page   137
·         At the gate of Sikorsky Helicopter factory in USA , a plaque on gate reads :

“ By all known laws of aerodynamics , the ratio of weight to wing area of a Humming Bird is such that it cannot fly . But the Humming Bird is ignorant of this law , so it goes ahead and flies anyway ! “



Page   139
·         We launched  www.3pJobs.com  on 14 Nov 1997



Page   142
·         In ResumeSYNC, there is no question of any trust ( or trust gap ) between any two members , since there is no direct BI-LATERAL exchange of resumes between the two . It is an exchange between a member and the CENTRAL SERVER . No member knows which resume got donated by whom .

 Questions of Quality , Style and Speed , do not arise



Page   176
·         Value for W3F , will be :  Jobs for All = Peace on Earth


·         I hope to create such an Online Platform for W3F , where software developers will keep writing new software code or improving existing codes of  www.GlobalRecruiter.net  /  www.IndiaRecruiter.net  /  www.RecruitGuru.com  /  RESUME  RATER etc ( an OPEN SOURCE platform )



Page   177
·         Someday , can www.GlobalRecruiter.net , succeed in getting thousands of job portals in 100 countries , to become “ Partner web sites “ – and enable jobseekers ( in those 100 countries ) get “ Job Alert Broadcast “ of “ Matching Jobs “ getting posted on ANY of those PARTNER WEB SITES ?




Page   188
·         Design of W3F must “ facilitate “ several persons to participate in developing a network of :


#  Job Portals / ISPs / MSPs

#  Employment Exchanges /  Media Companies
 
#  Colleges  /  Associations  /  Advt Agencies

#  Device  Manufacturers etc




Page   192
·         In   www.GlobalRecruiter.net  , it was planned that anyone wanting to start a “ Partner Web site “ could do it within hours ( or minutes ) by simply copy / pasting , a small piece of code ,from GlobalRecruiter , onto his web site




Page   193
·         In   www.B2BmessageBlaster.com  , we enable our subscribers to blast their “ Marketing Messages “ > City wise > Industry wise > ( City + Industry ) wise


·         Similarly in www.CustomizeResume.com , we enable jobseekers to search for jobs , > IT wise > NON-IT wise > Conventional > Archival



Page   194
·         A “ Resume “ has a long time – may be 20 / 30 years ; even as it undergoes many EDITS – at least once a year


·         A good part of resume remains same , year after year . A few things do change



Page   195
·         Resumes are text documents which can be easily updated



Page    200
·         If www.B2BmessageBlaster.com , was making enough money ( revenue ) from subscribers blasting their Marketing Messages to Corporate and Chambers , then I would have made “ Influence Policy Makers “ totally free


·         Tweeter has millions of users because it is FREE, even though :

#  Messages can be only 140 characters

#  Messages do not get “ delivered “ ( as email ) to anyone . Only those who visit that page get to see the message




Page   201
·         Another issue / reason , why “ Influence Policy Makers “ has not picked up , is because it is like a ONE WAY TRAFFIC !  Apply , Apply , no Reply !

 People ( who take the trouble to compose and blast their suggestions ) , will feel “ engaged “ ONLY if , at least , a few of those recipients , take the trouble to respond – like Minister Prakash Javadekar’s one word reply to my email , ( GOOD ) !



·         If Recruitment Agencies are our “ Targeted Early Adopters “ for ResumeSYNC, will they talk and persuade other agencies to join ? I have doubts


·         Like Skype , ResumeSYNC too , will be FREE




Page   202
·         A possible promo message :

Recruitment Agent / Headhunter :

The more your coprofessionals you persuade to join , the more all of you benefit , through sharing with one another , resumes that lie unused on your individual servers . Just look up the list of OUR  MEMBERS




Page   203
·         This morning , my visitor was Mr Amal Das , CEO of www.GoodPeopleConsulting.com . He volunteered to share my message (  ALLOW  ME  TO  SHARE  ) , with his contacts and NHRD Network members . I hope his help works ( 28 April 2016 )




Page   205
·         May be on W3F , we can request “ Members “ to welcome “ New Members “ – instead of same / one person greeting new joiners

·         In 1989 , I had submitted to L&T Management , a report titled :




Where, I had pointed out this ( Networking ) scenario, in my cover letter


·         In Mumbai , I had booked a landline phone in 1959 , which got connected after 7 YEARS ! – after an advance payment of Rs 3,000 !

·         In this connection , today , I emailed my following blogs to Shri Prakash Javadekar – Minister for Environment :

“ What business are we in ?  If you don’t make yourself obsolete , someone else will “
