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?"

POLLUTION   SOLUTION , aka " PollSolv "

It is said : Necessity is the Mother of Invention
Let us rephrase :  Essentiality is the Mother of Intervention
This is in response to Odd / Even driving rule being experimented in Delhi from Jan 1 2016
Equally applicable to any other city , threatened by vehicular emission pollution
This solution will be named : PollSolve
It will be in two parts , as follows :

#  VEHICLE BASED DEVICE

All vehicles (existing and future registrations) to be fitted with a GPS locator ( compulsory )
Each of this locator will carry Vehicle Number ( hard-coded )
A software in Delhi Transport Department , will then , be able to track in real time , movement of each vehicle ( 24*7 ) , on several computer screens
If a Odd numbered vehicle is travelling on Even date , it will show up as a RED colored dot on the screen and through linkage with RTO records ,an automatic alert will be issued to the mobile phone of the nearest Traffic Police to catch / stop that vehicle and take that vehicle, off the road !
The owner / driver can take it back after one week of grounding !
This technology is available , commercially and off - the - shelf
Should not take more than 6 months to implement


#  MOBILE BASED APP

Each citizen of Delhi will have to ( compulsorily ) download and install on his smart phone , an App called :  CarPool
He / she will enter following data in the App :
*   Name / Gender
*   Email Id / Mobile Number / Residence Address / Work-place Address
*   From / To ( in the morning ) / Time of travel
*   From / To ( in the evening ) /  Time of travel
*  If owning a vehicle , then :
    #  Vehicle type : 2 - 3 - 4 wheeler
    #  Fuel type     :  Petrol / Diesel / Electric
    #  Vehicle Capacity : 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 persons ( including driver )
    #  Vehicle Number :
    #  Vehicle Registration Date ( to compute " Age " of vehicle )
    #  Serial Number of GPS locator fitted on vehicle ( must be unique / Mfrr to take care )
    #  CarPool Number (Unique Serial No allotted by App) : To be entered after joining a Pool
With this data , software will analyze / display , a list containing names / contact info of other citizens ( matched gender-wise ) , travelling on same , approximate " route " and the nearest pick-up points , on Google Map
Citizens will then contact other vehicle-owners and form a CarPool
Then , they will enter their CarPool Number ( as mentioned above )
The software will reanalyze / redisplay the list if any entered data gets EDITED later
After compiling data about ONE BILLION actual cumulative travels undertaken by each type of vehicle ( 2-3-4 wheeler ) , BIG DATA ANALYTICS software , will carry out ,
*  Millions of permutations / combinations of " Car Pool Universes " possible
*  Using ( updated version of ) " Karmarkar's Algorithm " , figure out the optimum Car Pool
    Universe which minimizes the overall pollution level in Delhi
 *  Calculate for each citizen , the " LEAST POLLUTING ROUTE " based on data compiled
     from the " Optimum Universe " and  send " Car Pooling Recommendation " to each
     citizen thru CarPool app
  

This could be somewhat like " Travelling Salesman Problem " in Linear Programming ( - improved versions could be found in Fuzzy Logic / Neural Network / Artificial Intelligence )

Given the prevalent START-UP wave in India, any number of Indian Start Up companies would be happy to take on this " Two Part " challenge and implement in 6 months . It is the least expensive / permanent / replicable solution , suitable for the entire World
All that is required is a POLITICAL WILL and some genuine cooperation between Shri Gopal Rai ( Delhi Govt ) and Shri Nitin Gadkari ( Central Govt )
It is time to offer to the World , an INDIAN ANSWER to vehicular pollution

POLLUTION SOLUTION


Dear Shri Gopal Raiji,

At the outset , I wish you all luck with the odd/even driving rule from tomorrow

As you have repeatedly stressed :


There will be some unanticipated problems but , eventually , satisfactory solutions will be found for each of these

Allow me to submit my own SOLUTION as follows

I will be happy to hear from you , what you think about the same

You may want to get its feasibility examined by IIT-Delhi's Computer Science / Telecom Professors

BLUE-PRINT FOR START-UP NATION ?


BLUE-PRINT   FOR   START-UP  NATION  ?

On  27  Dec  2015  , in his " Man Ki Baat " address , with reference to planned launch of " Start Up India , Stand Up India " on 16 Jan ,  Shri Narendra Modi said :
#  DEFINITION  OF  A  START UP
"  If a youth conceives a new idea that can give employment to poor, that can be called a Start Up .
#  ACTION  NEEDED
The banks should help these youth and encourage them
#  INNOVATION  CULTURE
Be it manufacturing , service sector or agriculture, this new initiative will bring in new ideas, new ways , and new innovations
#   SCOPE
The scheme should reach out to the last person in the country
#   REACH
They are made for the poorest of the poor  "

No doubt , a great initiative
#   QUESTION
When finally announced on 16 Jan,will this initiative be BOLD enough to make a difference ?
#   ANSWER
It can be, if the concerned Minister will incorporate following suggestions sent , through
*   A New Economic Order / Start Up Act - 2015  (  12  Sept  2015  )
*   Create Wealth to Create Jobs  (  26  Feb  2014  )
*   Get  Out  of  the  Way  ( 02  Dec  2015  )

But , if the concerned Minister stays paralyzed by " Fear of Failure " , or " Fear of Finance Ministry " , then expect a damp squib  !

EMPOWERING PEOPLE


Dear Shri Ravishankar Prasadji,


Thank you for your Mass Email Message , outlining various initiatives taken by your Ministry to " Digitize India "

In the past , I have sent to your Ministry , a few of my own suggestions , in this regard

But , no acknowledgement  !

I realize that there will be problems while trying to implement some of my suggestions

But endless thought-analysis ( If this, then that ) , can only lead to action-paralysis !

Americans are the greatest " Innovators " , because they are the greatest " Experimenters "  !

For them , every failure , brings them closer to a practical / viable solution of a real life problem

I list below , some of my suggestions and request that , at least , these get " examined " by domain-experts

with regards,

Is Uma Bharti helpless ?


Is Uma  Bharti  helpless  ?

She is Cabinet Minister for Water Resources / River Development / Ganga Rejuvenation
Immediately after taking over in May 2014 , she launched " Swatchh  Ganga " project
After struggling for past 19 months , Ganga continues to be as polluted as before
As it flows through the Northern States , thousands of factories continue to dump their untreated chemical effluents into it , despite laws prohibiting this
And hundreds of cities / towns , continue to discharge  their untreated sewage into it
I am sure , if she were to read following news report in Business Line ( 26 Dec 2015 ) , she would want to cry in anguish and even wonder :
"  Of course , democracy is a wonderful thing - provided
   *  MPs / MLAs server the interests of the people who elected them , whether they are in party of power or sitting in the opposition 
   *  And the government officers / police were to enforce whatever laws exist and book the offenders, without fear or favor ( no " parrot in the cage " syndrome )
   *  And the Courts hear the cases and pass orders on the same day ( no dates )
But , if none of this is likely to happen in a democracy , can I have the powers of the Chinese Ministry of Environment Protection , which :
#  Received 12,369 telephonic complaints
#  Inspected 14 lakh companies between Jan - Sept ( 5091 per day )
#  Ordered 28,600 companies to suspend their operations ( 102 per day )
#  Shut down 17,000 polluting industries  ( 61 per day )
#  Found 46,800 companies discharging pollutants
#  Discovered 63,700 companies involved in illegal constructions  "

It is time citizens of India asked themselves :
"  To 480 million BPL ( below poverty line ) people of India , what matters more ,

    *  Right to vote / select , MPs / MLAs , once in 5 years ,  or
    *  Freedom from hunger and freedom from pollution / diseases ?

For a solution , read my blog " ROMP - a panacea ? " at www.hemenparekh.in

ONE CLICK


Dear  Amitabh ,


Just read attached news report in today's Hindustan Times , which talks about your plan to hold a series of meetings with Business leaders , in various State Capitals

Apart from sending out " Invites " to selected Business Leaders , I suppose , you would also want to inform the " Domestic Indian Companies " re these meetings - and the " Outcome " of these meetings


From our page , " Influence  Policy  Makers " , you can send out your messages to the following groups of persons ( each group , needing just ONE CLICK of mouse ! ) :

*     Business  Leaders................... 154   ( If desired , we can upload full database of 4000+ leaders )

*     Economists............................  106

*     Editors...................................  163

*     TV News Anchors...................     22


Of course , apart from these , you can also send out your messages to some 2,62,000 Indian Companies

from our page , Blast Message - City wise

Once again , it takes just ONE CLICK of the mouse to email your message to all the Companies located in any given city  !

That means , with just   ONE CLICK   each , your message will get delivered to :

*    Mumbai.............. 40,906   Companies

*    Bangalore...........25,930    Companies

*    Gurgaon............ 22,674    Companies

*    Delhi...............   20, 217   Companies..........etc


With 38 CLICKS , you can send out your message to some 2,10,000 ( 80 % ) of the Companies , located in 10% of the Cities  !


You will recall that during our meeting in Mumbai on 05 Sept , you had expressed desire to use the Mass Messaging Platform of B2B , to reach out to Indian Companies


This is your chance to do that  !

BOOSTING START UPS


Dear  Amitabh ,


Merry Xmas  !

Here is my today's blog

hemen / (M) 0 - 98,67,55,08,08

PS :

I hope you can find some time for us to meet during Make In India Week - Mumbai ( 13 - 15  Feb 2016 )

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

Ditch   Historical   Baggage  !


In Aug 2015, SIDBI launched a Rs 2000 Cr " Fund of Funds ", to support Venture Capital Funds

By now, proposals from 24 VC Funds for an aggregate amount of Rs 930 Cr have been cleared

A report in Economic Times ( 23 Dec 2015 ) quotes Shri Mohandas Pai :

" If Rs 10,000 Cr is given as seed capital, it can enable at least 30,000-35,000 Start Ups with the multiplier effect in the next 5 years, with a total impact of Rs 60,000-70,000 Cr on the economy "

Now , what can Rs 20,000 Cr manage to do ?

Simple but compelling arithmetic !

If Mr Pai was our Finance Minister , he would :

*   Sell of 53 loss-making PSUs ( or at least close them down )

*   Save Rs 20,000 Cr of losses these PSUs have been making , year after year

*   Invest this Rs 20,000 Cr in " Fund of Funds "

*   Help create 60,000-70,000 new Start Ups

*   Add 700,000 new jobs ( @ 10 jobs per Start Up ? )

*   Boost economy by Rs 140,000 Cr ( Capital Output Ratio of 1 : 7  )

But , if we are really keen to help create millions of Start Ups to raise India's GDP from Rs 2 Trillion to Rs 10 Trillion in the next 10 years, then Rs 20,000 Cr just won't suffice  !

We would need Rs 20 Lakh*Crores ( 100 times more )

Not possible for Union Government to raise that kind of money - either by borrowing or by raising taxes

But not at all difficult for 3 crore tax payers , if we

*   Abolish Personal Income Tax

*   Introduce Black Money Investment SPVs

Read following blogs ( sent to all Ministers / Chief Ministers ) at www.hemenparekh.in,

*  A New Economic Order / Start Up Act - 2015

*  Create Wealth to Create Jobs

*  Agenda  for  Reforms
