Straight Angle™: Dont get me Wrong!

Dont get me Wrong! 

Please don't get me wrong!!..If you think that having a web site will cure all your ills, then you aren't alone in this Cricket and, off late IT Crazy nation. No- Don’t pass the judgment yet. It's not that I am a cynical person to the core. Not Yet...but going by the way the Nation goes on it's 59th Independence Day, I am afraid I might be one, before the dye dries on my hair!!

Happen to read this write up by Giga Om!!..The Reuters story, as Om Says, had been picked up by many news papers around the world. I was intrigued when I saw the story. It seemed like a perfect pill for the woes of the villages. Surprised and enthused, I went to the site given in the web site. And then, all my hopes crash landed. Boom!!

Typical of all the initial hype, the website has nothing more than the history, geography, civics, social science of the village- and ofcourse, the Legislative Set up, which has only the photo and the contact details of the Hon'ble Minister of Transport, Public Health and Parliamentary Affairs, Mr. Randeep Singh Surjewala. I searched long for the Legislative Setup. I couldn't find one..I am convinced that the Minister is all that is there for the "setup". Hmmmm..

Have a look at his profile.

The Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi had nominated him as the President of the Indian Youth Congress in March 2000 and he held this post till year February 2005. He was the first person from Haryana to become the Indian Youth Congress President. He is the first person from Haryana to hold this office. He is again the first to hold this office for five years.

Mrs. Sonia Gandhi had appointed him as Secretary of All Indian Congress Committee and Office In- charge of Uttar Pradesh affairs in August 2004. Therefore, Mr. Surjewala became the youngest member in the team headed by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi. He was appointed as working President of Haryana. He is the youngest member in the team by Mrs. Sonia Gandhi. Mr. Surjewala was appointed as working President of Haryana Congress Committee in December 2004. He is the Youngest person in the Country to hold this office.

He takes keen interest in redressing the grievances of the people and organizing constructive activities for youth. He likes trekking, camping, long walks, listening gazals and poetry.He has been to a number of foreign countries including the USA, England, Canada, China, Taiwan, Hongkong, Philippines and Thailand. He also visited International Rice Research Institute, Phillipines.

I am convinced, he is the youngest person still alive in Indian National Congress.

Let all these rest. What is the purpose of the site? You can do all that is claimed the web site will do, without that website! I wonder how much money was spent in creating this page. I really believe, had that money been spent on even clearing the garbage on streets, it would have been more productive. No- I am not saying web pages are useless. Set your priorities right is all that I am saying.

Read a sample page:
Power Supply
Power distribution timings are not stable and power cuts happen abruptly. The condition of electric wires is awesome (Emphasis added) and needs to be replaced at a number of places.

There are a number of unemployed youth. [Reproduced from the page]
I rest my case. I don't have much to say..I only wish we come out of the Magical Pill obsession.
