I am writing not because I want the supervisor of the property of the Waqf Board Shahi Imam, Syed Ahmed Bukhari, to invite the flag-bearer of India in the ceremony that would see yet another appointment for the position of 'successor to Shahi Imam'. But, because the 'politics' involved herein is not what that the Indians thought of while voting in the 2014 general polls or legislative polls in Maharashtra and Haryana.
When BJP was not in power, it was quite clear about bringing back the huge piles of black money stashed abroad. The leaders, from the top wing to the bottom, seemed promising and goal-oriented in their approach, and the general public that voted in favour of saffron too anticipated that what belongs to the common man and the country would ultimately be brought back.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi cherishes a commendable vision to take India to new heights on the socio-economic front. For this to happen, first our country has to catch up with the developed world in the manufacturing and industrial sector. Unfortunately, even after more than two decades of economic liberalization, India has barely managed to scratch its existing potential.
This suggestion is much-inspired by PM's recent measure of launching the 'attendance.gov.in', aimed at biometric attendance of government employees. The pluses of digitization were hardly known to former administrators; however the use of digital media, for augmenting nation's productivity, during his control has been far than promising.
