frankly, I don’t see much problems with it. Do we want a city Mumbai with more than half the land area as slums? No we don’t want that. in fact China’s urban villages are having more facilities than these abysmal slums of Mumbai , which look like a horror show straight out of an apocalypse movie. Whatever Chyna’s problems are, they do march ahead with a single minded intent, which is how countries like South Korea Japan and Singapore developed. Let’s take the domain of space as an example. China has been able to undertake space launches including putting a rover on Mars in a pandemic stricken year. Meanwhile ISRO has gone to sleep and has not launched anything worthwhile in the last two years. That is not going to give people a lot of confidence in ISRO’s capabilities. Even existing programs like the Gagan positioning system chip has not been commercialized. Frankly, I am not happy with the way we handled the China virus situation. Slowing down of infrastructure projects and industrial projects and advanced technology projects should not be happening. There should’ve been an all party consensus that these types of projects must go on for a developing country like ours, no matter the circumstance. I feel that PM Modi has not been able to forge or force this consensus and double down on growth and competitiveness. The world is super competitive. And we need to be very focused on how to compete even in very trying circumstances. Until we become single minded just like these east Asian countries we cannot just take consolation from such videos. There is a reason Vietnam exports as much is India these days. They found a way to take advantage of mistrust in China’s supply chains, by building their infrastructure rapidly.For those who say Indian coties should be like china, lol.
U see mate till 1800s next to no modem industry existed across the globe.Industrial machinery ,compressor , filters , engines , generator , motors ??
Nothing much really we are good at assembling stuff for local consumption that's it. Notable sectors Pharma, Automobiles, Jwellery, Petrochemicals.
Ya'll Nibbiars in the Mid 1990's BPL was a 4,500 crores 1.5 billion dollars, Onida was a 3,000 Crores 1 billion dollar's, IFB was 2,100 crores 700 million dollars and the Videocon was the 7,500 crore 2.5 billion dollars firm's until the Foreign OEM's destroyed them. And we destroyed our own industries. When the PV Narshima Rao given the foreign Firm's to import in India it's created other but destruction of the Indian Electronics Industry's.Industrial machinery ,compressor , filters , engines , generator , motors ??
The qualification for being IAS, IPS, IFS etc. Is not highest education + experience in relevant field. No. It is simple general knowledge test and some BS interview. Anyone from any field can join. An Arts or social science graduate can crack UPSC and become IAS, afterwards he/she can get appointed to run a major scientific institute. That Arts guy now gives orders to real scientists. While talented people with years of experience are not even qualified because of nonsensical age limits and stupid GK exams which has nothing to do with job profile.The Civil Services are smoking pile of shit no matter how u look at it. The iron frame is rotten since inception. It was a British made Structure and it remained British.
Sardar Patel was one of the many jokers who praised them.
IAS, IPS, BDO, SDO, CO, IRS, IRS, SSC are all joke and a employment scheme for the filthy unwashed masses.
No matter how much few eminent intellectuals on this forum want to deep throat UPSC it is the truth that there has never been a more heap of shit administration than this.
If India is in Ruins than next to politicians they are the biggest culprit.
I spit on UPSC fuck dem.

Losers who waste years being unemployed and reading newspapers are rewarded with highest position in our country's bureaucracy. Isn't this sad?
His first point is right, we can provide electricity 24 hours, but 24 hours “pure water” supply is doubtful. Semiconductor fabs need purest water to use.This Gaurav Gupta guy saying india cnt provide 24hrs electricity and water thats why nt possible for Fab companies to invest here .. He also said 2nd wave of covid exposed health system of india so cnt go there ... So people who think optics created in washington times , bbc , CNN by our DU JNU graduates dont have impact think again ..
by the way a good article on fab in india
Then, by the same token, China also should've extended the same courtesy to non resident Chinese for building its reserves. Remittances have remained relatively stable for the past 10 years, while crude import bill have gone up substantially. And then we have examples from countries such as Pakistan, whose FOREX reserves are significantly smaller than the annual remittances they receive, putting paid to such oversimplification.Remittances from overseas workers should be thanked，They contribute 70 to 100 billion dollars a year.
Videocon and BPL screwed up their big market leads due to their inept CEOs.Ya'll Nibbiars once we had a large electronic base capable of manufacturing most of the parts and also R & D but instead opening of the JV we opened all the FDI in the electronic and lost 30 years. The Videocon, Onida, BPL, NELCO, Zenith, Voltas sold their Consumer business to Electrolux and then rentered, Godrej Appliance was almost at the branckptcy in the 90's, IFB revived only in the 2000's, Mitashi, Wipro and many more.
There is hardly any work done in Even the education sector by AAP in their two terms so far.Frankly education policy by Delhi govt. is positive.
But he has not worked on the infra front, which even previous congress govt. did
Remember TV from company called "National" formed by Panasonic in India with Indian govt association. It rules the cheap tv market in 90s. We had their 12 inch flat screen black n white TV at home for over 10 years.
Damn man! bringing Nostalgia!We had a beltek color TV in the 80s. It was a good TV, we still have it in working order at my grandfather's place.
Indian Electronics Industries had grown quite healthy in 80s and 90s.Ya'll Nibbiars
The NELCO was not an unsuccessful stint. It was very successful in terms of wiping out losses and making it a dividend paying company again. What went wrong was that the Tatas never adequately capitalised the company. So while it became positive, it could not scale up and grow. The were in radios, the company. And had only 2 per cent market share. Then it's took that to 20 per cent. The NELCO were second to Philips and just under Murphy, that was the big radio company at that time. And given the capital that never got and because we were made a part of Tata Power which didn’t have any real interest in consumer products, The TELCO went into industrial electronics. And it was a tremendous because it was a company under terrible financial stress.
It had losses equal to its capital and were literally pulling out every drop of water from the bucket. And never knew if it's would be able to meet the payrl requirements at the end of every month. Those 8 or 10 years in NELCO was what drew upon in later years. Yes, the general misconception was that NELCO was a failure but that failure was, if I can say so, the Tata Group’s failure. They did not see the importance of electronics or the need to take it further. They just wanted to get out of radios. The older directors like Nani Palkhivala and others like the. felt that the Group shouldn’t bother with textiles, and shouldn’t bother with NELCO and other smaller companies and should focus entirely on the major companies like Tata Steel, TELCO, Tata Chemicals. In the case of NELCO, And must say that's, The had it not been for the JRD Tata, the company would have been liquidated. He saw the future in electronics. He saw the future in air travel. He saw the future in computers, IT. Many of his colleagues did not. A good example is watches. If it was not for JRD, The Group would have not had a viable company like Titan. The NELCO can be called a company of lost opportunities. It concentrated on manufacturing when it needed a marketing foused's. It stuck to radios while others diversified. It got into a groove.
From the NELCO's Book's.
Micromax started in early 90s as contract manufacturer for making TV for other big brands in India. Their core strength was making TVs and some other home electronics but they found broad success when they entered into Android market when no other Indian brand was there.Micromax has improved somewhat , also bpl , ifb ,godrej , are getting back in game
