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?"

With regards,

HELP MAY BE ON WAY !


Shuklendu / Nitin,


Look at the following exchange of messages between me and IBM Watson Analytics Team , on my Facebook page

As soon as I have their reply , I will forward to you . I hope it is positive !

In the meantime , I suppose you must have downloaded the Microsoft Charting API and experimented with it

While waiting for IBM response , can you please install HiSTAT and FeedJIT counters , on all pages of CustomizeResume  ?

PS :

Incidentally , last evening , one party ( Vishal Infotech ? ) registered on B2B web site ( I could find this from our Statistics page - Subscriber No 582 )

But ,

I did NOT get a copy of our email to Subscriber , welcoming him and telling him about Joining Bonus !

Pl investigate and phone me soon

YOU ARE THEIR ONLY HOPE


Dear Narendrabhai ,

You can save 1.2 million starving kids from dying , every year , by leveraging JAM ( JanDhan - Aadhar - Mobile ) , as suggested in my blog below

If you like my suggestion , it would encourage me to get your views / comments

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

Saving  1.2  million  Kids

Monday / 27 June :

Shri Amitabh Kant , CEO -NITI Aayog , holds a consultation meeting with experts , Ministries and State departments on ,

" National Nutrition Policy  / India's Malnutrition : A Call for Action "

Tuesday / 28 June :

UNICEF releases a report which says, in India , 1.2 million kids ( under age 5 ) died in 2015 , due to " preventable " causes

Even though the eventual manifestation could well be pneumonia / diarrhea / sepsis etc , the root cause is starvation ( - although , to remain politically correct , UNICEF uses the term " malnutrition " ! )

That is 3288 kids daily - 137 kids per hour !

This need not come as a shock , despite the fact that the Integrated Child Development Scheme - ICDS - was launched in India , as far back as 1975


In 2013 , a CAG report had criticized the Women and Child Development Ministry ( which is piloting the ICDS ), for diverting ICDS funds !

CAG further pointed out that the State Governments had diverted Rs 57.82 crore from ICDS to other activities !
Finding faults will not save these kids !

There are 74 millions of them in the age group of 3-6

Of these , 54 million go to schools , where , I presume they get some nutrition thru Mid-Day meals , even with all the associated deficiencies and corruption scandals !

That leaves 20 million who do not go to school , hopelessly mal-nourished

How can we ensure that they get some nutritious food everyday ?

If there is a will , there is a way - the following way :

FOOD

    India's own " Energy Bar "  ( a Chikki ) , made of a protein-rich mixture of Peanuts + Jagerry ( 50 gms )
    Call it NEUTRA-KID ( - may be our Food Research Institute can come up with a better product )


PACKING

    Eco friendly paper wrapper and paper boxes



MANUFACTURERS

    FSSAI approved units located in Food Parks planned by Smt Harsimrat Kaur , Minister for Food

    1000 Food Processing Units , each producing 20,000 NEUTRA-KID bars per day and delivering to 100 nearby
    post offices ( for 20 million kids )



DELIVERY POINTS

    1.45 lakh post offices of India Post . May be they can pick-up / collect their daily consignments from Units



TECHNOLOGY

     *  Each NEUTRA-KID bar wrapper will have a bar-code ( till such time inserting RFID sensors become a reality )

     *  Bar code will carry all normal instructions + Delivery Destination ( Post Office )

     *  Each NEUTRA-KID bar will pass thru a Bar Code Reader on the Assembly Line , before dispatch

     *  Info collected thru this reader will get transmitted to the Central Server of concerned Ministries

     *  After taking his / her weight and entering in a online Database , hosted on the Central Server of
         the concerned Ministries, each targeted child will get registered at the nearest Post Office

     *  Each registered child will be issued a blue tooth enabled Smart phone, duly pre-installed with a Mobile App
        called " BANMALI " ( Banish Malnutrition in India ) , in which Child's data / Aadhar No will be entered

     *  Every day , the concerned child ( and parent ) will visit the post office to collect the NEUTRA-KID bar

     *  Before handing over bar, child will be weighed on a weighing machine and the weight entered in BANMALI
         The weight record graph will appear on the screen of the PC located at the Post Office ( Blue Tooth )

     *  This record will also get transmitted ( of course , automatically ) to the COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRE where
         the concerned child is " registered " ( this will be compulsory in order to be eligible for this Scheme )

     *  Every time , a child is taken for his/her monthly HEALTH CHECK UP ( also compulsory in order to receive
        next month's NEUTRA-KID bars ) , concerned doctor will examine the child and enter his findings in BANMALI
        Doctor will be required to enter medicines prescribed as also , increase / decrease in the QUOTA of NEUTRA-
        KID bars recommended for the next month

       All of these data will get relayed to the Central Servers of the concerned Ministries


As to the roles to be played by various agencies involved , I conceptualize as follows :


WOMEN  and  CHILD  DEVELOPMENT  MINISTRY :

#  Preparation of overall Policy and Procedures

#  Laying down of targets for each agency

#  Preparing and Monitoring Project Implementation

#  Making available funds to various agencies ( Rs 5 per bar = Rs 10 cr per day for 20 million kids )

#  Creating / hosting IT Infrastructure and disbursement of hardware / software / weighing scales / phones etc

#  Publishing on its web site , " Targets Vs Actual Achievement " graphs , every quarter


FOOD  MINISTRY

#  Laying down Nutrition Specifications for NEUTRA-KID bars

#  Selecting / approving Food Processing Units

#  Place purchase orders using Auction process / making payments thru UPI ( Universal Payment Interface )

#  Ensuring timely delivery to 1.45 lakh post offices

#  Ensuring Quality through SGS



POST OFFICES

#  After thorough scrutiny / verification , to register under-nourished kids . Central Database will ensure that
    there is no duplication ( same child registering at more than one post office )

#  Receive / Store / Distribute the NEUTRA-KID bars to registered kids , as per direction of doctor at Community
    Health Centre

#  Enter all data in BANMALI mobile app of each child and sync it with post office server , connected to Central
    Servers

#  At the end of the day , enter DAILY TRANSACTION DATA ( Receipts / Disbursement / Balance ) in server


COMMUNITY  HEALTH  CENTERS

#  Resident doctor to examine each registered ( and eligible ) child , once a month and prescribe ( into BANMALI )
    medicines / next month's bar-quota

    Medicines to be handed out ( Free ) , on the spot ( no visit to chemist )


#  All these data to be entered into BANMALI ( and then synced with server of Health Centre )

    In turn , all these data will get transmitted to Central Servers of concerned Ministries

If there is a way to physically move the COMMUNITY HEALTHCARE CENTRES into the premises of nearby Post Office , that would save a lot of hassle to the parents / kids

You will notice that my proposal tightly integrates ALL the concerned Agencies through internet enabled hardware and a SINGLE / COMMON software database , which not only prevents any " Benefit Leakages " but broadcasts actual " Achievements " ( Weight gain / Reduced Mortality ) , instantaneously / automatically / transparently

I hope the concerned Ministers and Secretaries and Shri Amitabh Kant , will debate my proposal

It is quite likely that they may improve upon it

Dear Hemenji

What a generosity, indeed! My gratitude to you for this gesture. I am eagerly looking forward dive into the treasure you have created long, long ago, even before any of us thought of it.

My total awe for you arises out of my curiosity : how you keep generating ideas - how you compile & organize them - how you simplify them in presenting - how you utilize and manage your time - how you cope with the inevitable exhaustion [physical/mental] - what you do for self-renewal and staying fit - what is your routine of a typical day - have you been mentoring some individuals to continue this legacy of producing out-of-the-box yet practical suggestions.

Oh, yes, when do you plan to write your autobiography if not already started? Has anyone not approached you yet with a proposal to make a video-film covering the above aspects of an inspiring and fulfilling life?

Would love to meet you some time, for sure.

Warm regards and best wishes = Gurudatt

In lighter vein

I just received an email from one of the contributors to the book L&T Stories “As per the trade practice, a contributor is supposed to get a complimentary copy. What should I do to get that?”

I could not delay replying. Here is what each contributor (roughly 40) has to do to get a complimentary copy.

1                   I have been working like crazy on this book, sometimes at 5 am and sometimes sleeping late. I have taken a lot of firing over the months from my wife. Each of you has to take 2.5% of that.
2                   I have devoted nothing less than 2 man months for the project (You may say that it is because of my inefficiency; we never got paid for efficiency; we got paid for number of days punched in.) At Rs 1 lakh a month, that would amount to Rs 2 lakhs. I am sure if I had continued as SAP consultant I would have earned more (may be I would have been dead by now).
3                   Professionals have helped me free. Their cost could be a lakh of rupees, if I were to pay.
4                   Tomorrow I am going to pay the publisher Rs 46,000.

So the total cost is around Rs 4 lakhs. Divided by 40, each person has to bear a cost of Rs 4000.

So anybody who wants a complimentary copy should send me a demand draft for Rs 4000.

I am eligible to get 10 complimentary copies as the person who pays the publisher. So each of us is eligible for one fourth of a copy of the book (you can chose which quarter of the 300 page book you would like to have). Else I will tear each copy and send each one who pays 75 pages, packing and forwarding extra.

If you want to join this bandwagon of enjoyment, please reply to all. If you want to fire me, do it with ‘reply to me only’.  I do not want to get fired by my wife more, though by now I have developed thick skin.

Salvaging Life On Earth

The biggest cause for the degradation of environment is burning of fossil fuels

Burning of coal / gas / oil etc produces green-house gases , leading to global warming / floods / droughts etc

Everyone knows that the real long term solution is switching over to renewable energy sources such as wind / sun / tides etc

Can we tap earth's magnetism to produce abundant / unlimited / clean energy ?

I believe so and would request the scientists to consider my following suggestion :

Every school child knows that ,

>  Electricity is generated when a copper wire is
     rotated in any magnetic field

>   Earth is surrounded by a very strong magnetic
     field

>   This magnetic field is generated by the rotation
     of molten iron deep inside earth's core

>   This magnetic field also protects us from harmful
     ultra-violet rays / gamma radiations from space

Now , suppose we find a way to ,

>  Construct a hollow cylinder of woven Copper wires
     to envelope the earth , 100 miles above the

     earth's surface ( like those thin rings of Saturn )

>  Then , using small rocket thrusts , rotate this

     cylinder in the direction opposite of earth's

     rotation , to cut through its magnetic field

Will that generate electricity  ?

I think so

With international co-operation such a project would take less time - and possibly money too - than the already successful international projects of the International Space Station or the Large Hadron Collider of CERN

It may be exciting to discover the God Particle and understand what makes up mass but I think , it is far more useful to find a permanent / clean source of energy to prevent the extinction of all life on earth by burning fossil fuels

For Today's Discussions


I have a database of over 5 million job advts , downloaded over the past 6 / 7 years from various job portals of India

Each job advt database consists of :
Ø  Advt ID

Ø  Designation ( being advertised )

Ø  Company Name ( Advertiser )

Ø  Job Description

Ø  Desired Profile

Ø  Compensation Offered

Ø  Experience ( desired ) – Years

Ø  Industry Type

Ø  Education Quali ( Min )

Ø  Location ( Posting City )

Ø  Keywords

Ø  Advt Posting  Date

Ø  Expiry Date


Some years back , ( when our website , www.World-Wide-Jobs.com , was up and running ) , we had developed a feature to analyze this database and display the findings visually , in different ways 

We were displaying PIE-CHARTS of :
Ø  Industry-wise Jobs

Ø  City-wise Jobs


You will observe that , with a much larger database available now , it is possible to analyze / display the “ No of Jobs “ , in many more ways

Not only that , it should be possible to analyze this huge database to predict the future expected PATTERN of the occurrence of jobs , in many different ways !


At any given time , the number of jobs getting advertised , is an important Economic Indicator

If economy is booming and company Order Books are getting fatter , then more jobs will get advertized – and vice-versa

Hence , a time-series analysis of the no of new jobs getting posted on job portals , has a  straight line relationship with the state of the economy ( a high co-efficient of correlation )

Apart from that , can a Data mining of 5 million jobs , answer ( even partially ) , the following questions ?
Ø  Who ( which Companies ) are advertizing and when ?

Ø  What jobs / vacancies / positions are being advertized ?

Ø  What is the frequency with which a particular job gets advertized ? By entire industry ? By a given Company ?

Ø  Which regions / cities have max / min no of new jobs ?

Ø  What are regional disparities due to ?

Ø  Which Industries are advertising most – creating most jobs ?

Ø  What Edu Qualifications are in max demand ?

Ø  What kind of jobs demand what kind of Edu Qualifications ?

Ø  What is the level of co-relation between , Position and the years of Experience demanded ?

Ø  For identical positions being advertized , how much do “ Job Descriptions / Desired Profiles “ differ, from company to company ?

Ø  Are there significant differences in the “ No of years of Experience “ being demanded , for identical positions ?

Ø  What is the probability of finding the “ Keywords “ in “ Job Description / Desired Profile “ ?

Ø  What is the extent of duplication ( redundancy ? ) between , “ Job Description “ and “ Desired Profile “ ?

Ø  What percentage of Advts fail to make any mention of , Compensation Offered ?

Ø  When a company posts an advt for same / identical position , at different points of time , are there any differences in values ( fields ) ?

Ø  From an analysis of all the advts posted by a given Company ( over past 7 years ) , can any conclusion be reached as to the changing nature of that company’s business (by co-relating the “ Skills related Keywords “)?

Ø  Can the algorithm predict what job a company will advertize next – and when ?

Ø  Is there any correlation between , “ Designation / Position “ and the “ Keywords “ ?

Ø  From analyzing this huge data , can software auto-generate , a complete / editable job advt , as soon as a Recruiter simply types the “ Designation / Position “ ?

I believe , so far , no one has undertaken such a Data mining project

If carried out diligently , I am sure , the outcome would be of immense benefit to :
Ø HR Managers

      for Manpower Planning / Compensation Planning 

Ø Recruiting Managers

      for framing Man Specifications / Job Description Manuals 

Ø Educationists

      for deciding what Edu Quali are in demand and tailor the Courses 

Ø Students

      to figure out what “ Skills “ are in demand by Industry and prepare 

Ø Planning Commission ( NITI Aayog )

      for allocating Resources to States / Regions , based on imbalances 

Ø  HRD Ministry

       For long term Macro-Planning in respect of Education 

Ø National Skills Development Commission

      for chalking out Skills Development Programs in collaboration with Companies / Industries 

If undertaken – and executed seriously – then this Data mining project has the potential to place 

Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation , 

 
on the Centre-Stage of National Education Planning Scenario

What can / will such a project yield ?

Without exaggerating , it would be safe to assume that , this vast database of job advts would contain :

Ø  50 million phrases / sentences

Ø  500 million words

Obviously , each word / phrase / sentence , is nothing more than a

 Database of Intentions “ of the Employer Companies

( to borrow from John Battelle’s well-researched book about Google )

Our goal shall be to make this ( Data mining Algorithm ) a dynamic / continuous “ Process “ , so that , we can measure the changing nature of these “ Intentions “ , over a long , long period

And we must enable a “ Researching Visitor ( of web site ) “, to benefit from these trends / patterns

Even though 5 million job advts may contain 500 million “ words “ , these are not Unique

 

Most of these are used again and again , hundreds or thousands of times

 

Thru data mining , it is not difficult to compute their “ Frequency of Usage “

 

And then , these frequencies can be graphically plotted against any particular time-period

 

Such Graphical Representations can be further broken up by ,

 

Ø  City Names

 

Ø  Company Names

 

Ø  Industry Names

 

Ø  Function Names

 

Ø  Designations ( Vacancy Names ).. etc

 

And such graphical analysis can be done , not only for “ Keywords “ but even for “ Key Phrases “ and “ Sentences “ !



Take a look at this project paper ( NOT ENCLOSED )

It is all about data mining of some 150 million records ( location points ) and about uncovering “ trends / patterns “ of physical movements of 300 human volunteers , over a “  period of time  “

I quote from article in Times of India ( 19 July 2013 ) :

“ ..the first system of its kind to predict long term human mobility in a unified way , parse the data. " Far Out " does not need to be told exactly what to look for  --- it automatically discovered regularities in the data “

“ Do you know precisely where you’ll be 285 days from now at 2 pm ?

Researchers have developed a new tracking software that can tell you exactly where you will be on a precise time and date , years into the future “

What we want to do with 5 million job advts database , is quite similar, viz ;
 predict ,

 WHO     ( which Company / Industry ) , will advertize

 WHAT   ( vacancies / positions / designations ),  and

 WHEN   ( time )



I am talking about developing an “ Expert System “ , thru discovery of specific “ Co-relations “ amongst various Data Fields of 5 million job advts

Eg :

Ø  What is the Co-relation between , any given

Ø   Designation / Vacancy-Name / Advertized Position ,

 and

Ø   Educational Qualifications  ?

Here are some examples :

Ø  Any designation  such as “ Production Manager “ would call for an “ Engineering Degree / Diploma “ ( but never a CS / CA )


Ø  Any designation in “ Finance Function “ will require,
·       B Com
·       M Com
·       CA    etc
       But never a BE(M ) / BE (Chem )


Ø  Any designation at Manager level will call for a minimum experience of 5 years ( but never a Fresh Graduate with NIL experience )


Ø  MBA / BBA / MMS etc are the most preferred Edu Qualifications for positions in Marketing



Ø  No vacancy in an Automobile Manufacturing Company , will call for a degree in Pharmaceutical


Ø  No Electrical Machinery Manufacturing company will ever demand a Medical Degree (MBBS )


To a human mind , these ( rules ) are so obvious !


But , no human mind can write-down ALL of such RULES , in 2 minutes ! – something that your Data mining Software can – and will – do in 5 seconds !


All that you need , after computing “ Frequencies of Occurrences “ , is to :


Ø  Plot the Co-efficients of Co-relations between various Fields ( of job advts )

Ø  Compute Probabilities for each and create hundreds of Probability Tables


And , since a thousand new job advts are getting added to our Job Advt Database , daily , the SAMPLE SIZE is perpetually increasing – thereby , increasing the Accuracies of your Predictions !


Having done this , imagine the following scenario :


Recruitment Officer of Wipro , comes to our “ Post Job “ page and , in the field for “ Designation “ simply types ,

“ Business Analyst “


And Presto !

The entire Job Advt Form gets auto-filled , with MOST PROBABLE values !

Would not that amaze her ?

All that our software has done is analyzed job advts of all “ Software Companies “ ( an Industry ),– and of WIPRO – for the position of Business Analyst and filled in the most probable values


This is no rocket science !


We had actually , partially attempted it – albeit in a crude way – in our earlier web site ,www.IndiaRecruiter.net


What surprises me is , how come no one has attempted this so far !


Especially , Naukri / TimesJobs / MonsterIndia , who have accumulated millions of job advts !

Anyway , the fact that they have , so far , ignored this  Line of Examination , will work to the advantage of


Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation


 – making YOU the very first person in the entire world to come up with a PREDICTION MODEL in the area of JOBS
            

However , without applying some simple data mining tool , it would not be possible to answer the following questions :

Where is the greatest decline of jobs being advertized ? 

How much is the percentage decline ?
Ø  In which Industry ?

Ø  In which Company ?

Ø  In which City ?

Ø  In which Region ?

Ø  In which Skills ?

Ø  For which Positions ?

Ø  For which Education Levels ? ………… etc


With a data mining tool , such individual graphs could emerge ( within fraction of a second ) at the click of a button !


One could even co-relate these graphs with other ,
 publicly available statistical data such as :
Ø IIP   ( Index of Industrial Production )

Ø Stock Market Index

Ø Currency Exchange Rate ( eg; declining Rupee )

Ø Decline in GDP / Increasing Fiscal Deficit

Ø CAD ( Current Account Deficit )

Ø Foreign Investments

Ø  Primary Bank Rates of RBI…………………………….etc


With proper co-relations , one could even predict how much the job market will further shrink , over the next 6 months ! or grow ?

Such” Predictive Model of Job Market “, would be of immense interest to , not only the economists but also to the HRD Ministry / Planning Commission / Educational Institutions and of course the students themselves
