Straight Angle™: Dont get me Wrong!
Tuesday, August 15, 2006
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.
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:
I rest my case. I don't have much to say..I only wish we come out of the Magical Pill obsession.
