P.U.R.A. - Providing Urban Facilities in Rural Areas, was his great dream. In case we fulfill that will be a great tribute to H. E. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

P.U.R.A.- Providing Urban Facilities in Rural Areas, was his great dream. In case we fulfill that will be a great tribute to H. E. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

I had privileged to talk to him via email. Twice.

1. During Ph.D. and Post-Doctorate, I had send him email and hard copy letter too on 25th July 2002. It was based on "Indigenisation" and told him that in case we don't act quickly on indiginisation, we'll not have even bullets for some foreign made guns and may be we'll lose our independence on technologies issue/ front due to patents and copy rights, etc. He liked the concept of my Ph.D. and he thought it's very much relevant.
Our heartfelt thanks to H. E. the then President of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, replied, "All the best for Ph.D."

The first ever President of India while sitting in the Presidential Palace / Rashtrapati Bhavan/ Office had answered student like me in 2002 by email. 

2. When I came back from Canada, in 2005, I was searching for job. I contacted him and told that I'm interested to work for P.U.R.A.- Providing Urban Facilities in Rural Areas, in the domain, where it requires most. I authored a publication on it: 

http://www.slideshare.net/DrAshishManoharUrkud/faster-developmnt-of-india  , 
i.e. F.D.I. using Rapid TC4T i.e. Faster Development of India using Rapid Time Compression Technologies, Tools, Technologies and Talents. Then, I was asked to contact Dr. Indiresan. He told me in one word, the problem they are facing is....."FUNDS".

Imagine, even as the President of India and later as a Former President of India, had problems of funds for such a dream project of him.

Why, such idealistic projects fail? Is it not a failure of the whole of the human kind itself? Time and again we are failing our existence on earth. Why can't so powerful people in politics, spirituality, business, science and technology, ... get such idealistic projects done? PURA in India and Globally MDG goes hand in hand, and failure of one is failure of other. Why can't Millennium Development Goals (MDG) being ...done? 

Hence, I feel, if we Indians can fulfill his dream of PURA, it'll be a great tribute to him.

One student asked me, "Sir, Indian economy is growing but where are the jobs?"

One student asked me, "Sir, Indian economy is growing but where are the jobs?"

I asked him in return, "You're already in job, then why this question boy? Also, you're well skilled as well?"
(Verbatim) He said, "Our skills are useless Sir, it's of no use. Some companies do not like honest but skillful people like us. They earn a lot but they're not pay masters. Sir, we've taken loans from Bank for this degree, and we've to pay back it. In case company pays us Rs. 15000/ month i.e. almost 45 USD/ Month, then how can we pay back the loans and survive our daily lives? Why can't we have minimum wages act for each degree holder? We don't mind you Ph.D. holder people get highest salary but, our salaries are less than even illiterate people.....".

I was listening to his agony and pains he was going through. He was about to cry.

Hence, I became speechless, I had no answer.

Unless Indeginised, Made in India or USA or China or Russia or Japan or Germany or UK or France or ABC or XYZ, is a show off...Importance of indeginisation in the era of Globalisation

Unless Indeginised, Made in India or USA or China or Russia or Japan or Germany or UK or France or ABC or XYZ, is a show off...Importance of indeginisation in the era of Globalisation 

One of the Chancellor of the International University asked me, "Why the research and books on indeginisation, which shows it's a obvious that if everything is manufactured in India then it'll be cheaper and will be better serviced for customers as well?"


My answer was, "How about Robotics and Manufacturing Technology? How about Patents and copyrights and trademarks? Where the royalty is going? Where the credit is going? Where the profit for all these activities are going? Any Advocate can understand. I'm not against Globalization or against the Multi-National Companies (MNC), but more the indigenisation by all the countries we'll have multiple ways as well as cheaper ways to manufacture, and these variety all over the world can sustain the economies of each and every country. Why we talk only about one particular country? Why not all countries have sustainable economy?"


Another senior person in 1998 asked me, "It's Indianisation or Indigenisation, you always talk?" He heard my guest lecture in some colleges about my this argument and Liberalisation, Privatisation and Globalisation (LPG) talk of the town and the world at large. I asked him, "Where would Legal rights go?" He said, "Obviously to the country where it's patented?" Then, I said, "Sir, hence, indegenisation of technologies, resources, manufacturing technologies, etc. should be owned by India, e.g. Cars, if Mercedes-Benz or BMW or Honda or Toyota or Ferrari or Bentley or Rolls-Rice or Lamborghini or .....is manufactured in India, and still it's patent, trademark copy right is hold by Germany or USA or Japan or UK or France or Italy then it's not 100% Indian made?" He further said, "Are you against MNC's and Globalization due to their profit sharing and these royalties we pay to them?"


I asked him, "Please allow me for this question back to you." He said, "Ok?" I asked him, "Why, not all but most of the foreign literate people in India are so myopic? Why don't you realise, what ever you publish your copyright goes to publisher who are sitting pretty in foreign land of Journal's origin? Why don't you realise that even if you buy a Suzuki car in India still royalty of patents and part of profit goes to Japan? We also hold Maruti-Suzuki but at present we don't have choice hence we do. Once, even Tata's and Mahindra's start indigenous the manufacturing robotics technology and software, then we'll call Tata's and Mahindra's as indigenous vehicles and then we'll buy it, they are also not fully indigenous." It's a fact still today in 2015.

The old boy was adamant, "Do you know how much investments are required? Now, if all the top technologically advanced countries lose their domination then what?"


I asked him, "Sir, with due respect, in our GSLV program, which country is ready to provide us cryogenic engine?"


He said, "None?"



I said, "That's the reason not only India, but, all the countries should have indegenisation program. This total indeginisation can make all economies self reliant and self sustaining and self propagating as well. I'm not against Capitalism or Communism or this political view or that. I'm not against relationship building nor against any country or business. However, when we talk about every village should be self reliant then what about nations and organisations and individuals, shouldn't they be self reliant? Also, in case 100 countries and 100 companies manufacture the car or space age technologies in their own ways then, wouldn't they be developing in their own ways? One of them could be a break through technology for the future....trust me when in use...it can got any level further."

He said, " True. I thought this thought will be against the globalization, hence, was the objection."

Then, I told him and all that, in this globalization and competition war cheapest manufacturer with high quality will win the race but in case that country/ organisation is economically giant entity and captures the global market then it could lead to monopolistic condition again. Any how left to this world, what to do and not, but I can visualize this is not true globalization as it favours only limited or few economies or few companies only who can survive the law of survival of the fittest and not survival of the weakest. If humanity has to survive and sustain then "Survival of the weakest is the law.....for all economies in fact to all the species especially, it's a lesson for the humans.....Let weakest survive and then fittest will automatically will take care of themselves, and indeginisation could be the best solution as it favours locals and glocals as well."

I said, "That's the reason not only India, but, all the countries should have indegenisation program because they know their own conditions and people very well and can implement the plans according to their own conditions. This total indeginisation can make all economies self reliant and self sustaining and self propagating as well. "

No questions were asked further and slowly students and staff came forward and supported the idea of Indeginisation in the era of Globalisation.


My all the 5 books worth 2200 self typed and published by god's grace, right now, in the name of "Indeginsation" proves this. They are available on URL: http://ijordgroup.in/books-by-ijord/ 


You can download and if you wish can submit USD 5  or INR 500, in the account given on the website. We trust all and the whole humanity. 

I wish all the best to whole humanity and all the countries.

Merit or Favoritism, problem with high handed approach at the top

Merit or Favoritism, problem with high handed approach at the top

Biggest problem with any country, any institution, and any organisation is HIGH HANDED APPROACH. We're Ph.D. or we're politicians or we're employer or we're from HBS/ IIT/ IIM/ MIT/ or this and that.
After just 1 month, none listen to them, even if they are great in their field.

Institutions cannot be great and remain at the top, for a millennium unless they respect each teacher, each student each employee, get feed back, like I did in UPES and other organisations worked.

However, problem is it cannot run for few years, as it's always someone at the top from these places comes and kills the routine....that kills the process of going upwards and with such in human approach India cannot have better Universities.

One more example, I applied to IIM Indore in 2004, when asked the HR personnel said, "Your waiting list number is 2228 for the position of Assistant Professor in Marketing". That too in 2013, and at that time I was selected as Senior Professor and was VPAA/ Pro Vice Chancellor-Academics, too in UPES. Now, such is the criteria of selection of faculty at top ranked Institution in India or anywhere in the world, tell me, how can they have global rankings? Another factor is, one of the candidate (who was inside) told me you need to have some top jack to get selected in top places or even at Professor place in IIT/ IIM/ NIT/....(which I don't agree to do), can I get selected?

Where are we going, Towards favouritism or towards merit based society in the world? There are many methods to check background information. In fact, in this transparent world, everything is on LinkedIn or Facebook or .....then, why such things? Another factor is, when student pass out or are studying/ working/ teaching in top institution/ organisation/ governments in the world, they say,  (HINDI) "Upar se tam toom, andar sey ram janey" :) meaning (ENGLISH TRANSLATION), all institutions/ organisations/ governments look beautiful from outside due to their marketing strategies, but when you go inside, all are total void and lack stuff or humanity or this or that.... :)

Sorry for frank and free remarks... but, when...it hurts your whole family and clan, someday I had to come out... to build this world beautiful and just.

Thus, unless we've merit and just, only the criteria, we can't make these places top class may it be institutions, governments or organisation...
In fact, humans should realize at the end of the day every one is human being.

After going through the 39 pages book "The Solution Master", someone said, "Why not it be considered for "Booker Prize" or for "Noble Peace Prize" or "Sahitya Academy Award" or "Bharat Ratna"

After going through the 39 pages book "The Solution Master", someone said, "Why not it be considered for "Booker Prize" or for "Noble Peace Prize" or "Sahitya Academy Award" or "Bharat Ratna", but I know, it's not marketed by any top book publisher, neither it is favoring any political system in the world, nor the thoughts are liked by even near and dear ones smile emoticon, neither it's going to be viral nor it's going to be liked by anyone though I'm speaking in every human's favor, then how can it win Noble Prize or Bharat Ratna or Booker Prize or Sahitya Akadami Award....? smile emoticon That's the problem Truthful, Honest person faces in this world. smile emoticon Still, I've raised questions that would be raised by our great, great grand sons and daughters would raise on us. smile emoticon Amen. Aum. Amin.

One of the solution provided by author is "NO WAR PACT between all the UNO nations for Development of this world...." ...hope everyone got the idea what this book contains. :) 

That's what is this world since eons. :) . During Ram it was the same, During Krishna it was the same, During Jesus it was the same, During Mohammad it was the same, During Ramkrsihna it was the same, During Kalki it will be the same. However, I've satisfaction that it's a drop into the ocean of Knowledge by God's grace.
