India Celebrates 57th Republic Day


Today India celebrated its 57th Republic Day. 26th January 1950 is one of the most important days in Indian history as it was on this day the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly sovereign state. In this day India became a totally republican unit.

This day is even more important than 15th August when some outsiders left the nation and other politicians took the charge. The real Independence, our own system and our own law was implemented on this day. This is the day we promised ourselves by means of constitution to build a republic, liberate, socialist, secular and democratic Nation. We gave ourselves the right to Vote. We made ourselves free from not only a Foriegn government but also from our own rivals, the social bounds, the caste slavery, the communal diversities and much more. One Man One Vote! One law for billions of people. Can there be a better example of equality than this! The worlds biggest, greatest and most stable democracy was founded on this very special day. This is a day to thank our constitution.

All great! But does the dream comes true? I know most of the voices would say no. Why? Why our religious identities still more prominent than national. Why the caste poison still alive? Why some castes still assumed superior than others? Why someone is blessed by birth and someone cursed? Why do we stilll fight in name of god? Why is the justice still out of reach? Can't we ever keep our own promise?
Will constitution replace our Geeta, Kuraan and Bibles? Shall we ever establish the true Democracy?

Lets not get too negative. After all we celebrate this day to remind ourselves our duties. Let's build the Nation! Happy Republic Day!!!

Designing for scalability – a startup perspective

What is scale? Is it the number of customers a company has? Is it the number of products that are sold? Is it the amount of revenue the company makes? Is it the amount of infrastructure one has? Or is it the number of features the product has? Well, it can be all of this or none of this. When an organization talks about scale it is not just a number. When an economist talks about it, again it’s not just a number. For an economist, the scale is about doing more with less. Scale is about perspective, about relationship between two or more variables that ultimately help you generate optimum value for your efforts.
Consider this, let’s say you are into making a lollipop. Selling 10 lollipops you earn $100 revenue of which $10 is you profit and $90 is the cost. When you increase you production you start selling 100 lollypops and earn $1000 revenue with $100 as your profit and $900 as cost. Did you really benefit from the scale here? In absolute terms, of course. In terms of ratios though,…

Asking for a slate that already is written into!

If I give you a slate or a notebook and a chalk or pencil, would you respond by complaining that it does not have anything written on it? Well that is how most educationist view technology as and that is what the problem with technology providers is.  We are so habituated to fast food instant noodle, that we want even our slates to be pre-written by someone else. The marketeers have lost the vision of utility of slate so much that they are still busy in selling slates with pre-written alphabets on them, and they are not giving you any chalk for your own writing as well.

Sounds absurd? Then remove slate and notebook, and put in its place the modern technology, computers, laptops, tablets and online learning solutions. In place of chalk and pencil, consider your ability to create and modify your own digital knowledge.  Of the hundreds of e-learning, online tutorials, online courses, are there any that focus on giving their learners the experience of creating knowledge on their own, put…
