Let us join Anna in his struggle for strong Lokpal


While going through some newspaper headlines today, it appeared to me that there is an attempt to belittle Anna. Look at the following:

उपोषण गुंडाळले , 'जेल भरो' ही रद्द : सकाळ २९ डिसेंबर
असा घसरला अण्णांचा टी आर पी: सकाळ २९ डिसेंबर
मोक्याच्या क्षणी अण्णा हटले: म. टा. २९ डिसेंबर

Our press  friends should not forget that fighting for corruption is not only Anna's responsibility. The rampant corruption in every walk of life affects common man today. It is the responsibility of all of us to fight it.

No political party is genuinely interested in bringing strong Lokpal. Can anyone deny the fact that whatever is being discussed today in Parliament is only due to the agitation spearheaded by Anna.  

Let us join Anna in his struggle for strong Lokpal

India Government: Take iniriative on robotics


The Government of India need to take an initiative on robotics. Here is an example from National Science Foundation (NSF), USA

The goal of the National Robotics Initiative is to accelerate the development and use of robots in the United States that work beside, or cooperatively with, people. Innovative robotics research and applications emphasizing the realization of such co-robots acting in direct support of and in a symbiotic relationship with human partners is supported by multiple agencies of the federal government including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The purpose of this program is the development of this next generation of robotics, to advance the capability and usability of such systems and artifacts, and to encourage existing and new communities to focus on innovative application areas. It will address the entire life cycle from fundamental research and development to industry  manufacturing and deployment.  Methods for the establishment and infusion of robotics in educational curricula and research to gain a better understanding of the long term social, behavioral and economic implications of co-robots across all areas of human activity are important parts of this initiative.  Collaboration between academic, industry, non-profit and other organizations is strongly encouraged to establish better linkages between fundamental science and technology development, deployment and use.
