Digital world, a stepping stone to successful governance.
“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. A moment comes which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation long suppressed finds utterance.”
-Tryst with Destiny
“PM Modi is World’s 13th Most Influential Person.”
Technology is helping a woman away from the realm of the world deliver her child. Technology is helping this child in a distant hill village get an access to better learning & education.
Our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the first Indian premier in three decades to visit the world’s mega tech hub with a focus on innovation & entrepreneurship that could bring marvels to our country.
Striking the right chord, PM Modi has conquered the tech Mecca of the world by his interactions with Silicon Valley’s Tech Heroes. The visit signals the rising influence and economic power generated by this technology bed. The visit was partly a reflection of the tremendous penetration of Indians at these tech majors. Statistics reveal that nearly 16% of tech start-ups have Indian founders. Indians & Indian Americans make up an outsize proportion of this technology parlance – we all have heard of Pranav Mistry, the tech fanatic, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft & Sundar Pichai being the latest pride of India in this tech hub.
What is Digital India?
It is a government programme that envisages smooth and efficient governance, by leveraging internet technology and by taking an inclusive approach so that the people of the country become the real beneficiaries. The goal of this programme is visualised in the form of nine pillars.
Digital India encompasses broadband highways, mobile connectivity, and public access to internet, governance, e-delivery of services, information availability, manufacturing, job opportunities and short-term goals such as common Wi-Fi access, biometric attendance system and e-books for schools.
PM Modi’s target tech titans are Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Tesla Motors & Google & India offers a scintillating opportunity to these tech firms as a part of the Digital India initiative.
Google & Microsoft have partnered up to deliver free Wi-Fi to 400 train stations across India, plus low-cost broadband to 6 lac rural villages, in an effort to connect some of the 4 million people who are at a disadvantage of access to internet.
The Prime Minister had also discussed ‘Apple Pay’ with Tim Cook so that ways could be explored in using it for Jan Dhan Yojna.
Tesla Motors – solar is going to be the fuel of the century. Overlooking the idea of bringing Tesla Motors to India, PM Modi has his interests on the Powerwall & how this solar battery could help us tap one resource we are sure we won’t run short of.
What is Powerwall?
Powerwall is a home battery that charges using electricity generated from solar panels, or when utility rates are low, and powers your home in the evening. It also fortifies your home against power outages by providing a backup electricity supply
This concept could help make a lot of Indian households self-sufficient in their energy needs for most of the year.
Digital India was born out of the conviction to rapidly connect the people on the farther ends of the country, with the country.
Hail Hail PM Modi!
