Career : I always wanted to work on computers. I passed my tenth with A grade, however due to confusion I chose commerce stream. What options do I have to work in IT ?

First of all congratulations for scoring good grades in your 10th. As you say, that you are interested in computers and if it comes naturally to you, then you can check out one of the several options you have.

I will give example of Surat, you can check for your respective state or university.

You must secure similarly good grades in your 12th board exam. That will give you a leading edge in merit counselling and admissions. If there is any entrance exam conducted for a particular University or state to get admission into MSc IT or BCA then you must prepare accordingly.

You will however not be able to apply for engineering seats.

In Surat, you can apply for MSc IT, which has around 30-40 percent intake for commerce students and based on merit list of board results. You can also apply for BCA through central counselling which is also based on board merit. There is no separate entrance exam as of now, but that might not be the case for other universities.


Why every girl deserves a fair chance to stand on her feet

When I meet parents of a young girl who want their daughter to complete her education and get married by the age of 18 so they can feel fulfilled about their responsibility in life, I feel sad and disappointed by their views on life. They are ready to spend 10-20 lakhs on her marriage and dowry but they cannot send her to a better school nor provide her with extra facilities that may help her secure good grades or acquire skills that may help her become something in her life. And there is no question of support in case the girl wants to become something unconventional like singer, dancer, painter or likewise. Even those who have big dreams of professional life aligned with academics are not given a fair chance to prove their worth.

If you do not let them get a fair chance to do what they possibly can you are jeopardizing their entire life into a cyclic loop of compromise and confusion.

Everytime you say a girl to clean the house because that is what you believe she is going to do her entire life, you are making one of the biggest mistakes of your life.

Everytime you expect a girl to believe that it’s her responsibility to take care of family, have kids and nurture them and there is nothing more to her life, you are causing more damage than good.

Everytime you tell her to not have dreams and just follow the cycle of life, you are pulling back an entire kin to be lost about life.

So wake from your false narration and weakness. If you do not have what it takes to give them the leverage to explore life and become something, what you can possibly do is at least support her until she can stand on her feet and prove that she can do it.

If you cannot give something than you have no right to revoke anything, including her future and dreams.

So believe in her and believe in yourself. In the days things turn tough and difficult, hold on until the good times come. Make every possible attempt to give equal and open fair chance to every girl and the world will slowly become a better place. You will be liberated from your from your bondages and give her freedom to live in this world with confidence and openness.

Life inside a shell !

A ten year old who thinks she will become a singer one day practices every evening with new songs and tunes. Parents think that this is just a floating thought and it’s for fun. They never encourage. No special care or attention is given to her. She wins in school competition every year and participates in annual function. With time every year same thing repeats. Neither is she sent to any music classes nor given any training by a professional. She is not even put in the circle of such young minds. Instead she is made fun of by her relatives. She continues to live in her own world believing her self and practicing as often as she can. When reality of life will be at her door, life will uncover what’s in store.

Nat Geo Show : The Next Frontier – Smart Cities India

Nat Geo Show on Smart Cities in India has been very well documented. It features the development with respect to Smart Cities mission in cities like Surat, Vishakapatnam, Pune and Varanasi. Each city is leading it’s change in particular aspect as necessary in the city. As these cities set the benchmark for development, implementation and projects in regards to smart technologies, other cities can replicate similar implementation at their level.

SURAT

Under the Smart Cities implementation projects Surat is leading in transportation and public services. Surat Municipal Corporation managed Bus Rapid Transit System BRTS is a fully functional centralized GPS system based Bus transport system in the city with a separate corridor for the buses. The system is centrally managed and monitor with over 270 buses running across the city. Electronically managed timings shown on the display inside the bus stops provided a glimpse of the waiting time for the passengers. Online booking of tickets and schedule help to avoid queues.

To promote the use of Public transport – City mayor travels to work via BRTS once in a week. Surat also has bicycles for use at various junctions to provide last mile service. (Not shown in the show)

City is monitored from the command center and actions taken respectively to correct any course.

VISHAKAPATNAM

Vishakapatnam is leading this frontier by developing new projects in the city for beautification, public parks and various projects undertaken to set a benchmark in design, development and public awareness and sensitivity. Under such projects one of the park has been developed keeping in mind the requirements for special children who seem to be enjoying and having a good time everyday in such park.

Popularity of that park has raised curiousity in other city administrators and Commissioners who seem to be interested in replicating similar projects in their own cities. We must set such benchmark in every front of development and implementation in projects across India.

Similar large scale park is being developed with facility for skating at national level by the same team. Along with local plants and greenery, design and astetics are given prime importance. Such projects boost the morale of city dwellers and create a positive vibe for the future.

PUNE

Pune is leading in technology implementation under Smart cities. Pune has implemented Emergency Call Boxes which are attended and managed by a central help centre. Any kind of Emergencies are attended by a call and immediate action taken via various departments in place.

Entire city is under observation via centrally managed system and every occasion is planned for. Any traffic movement is routed via centrally managed display hoardings.

VARANASI

Varanasi is leading the change in restoring archeological sites and monuments of cultural importance. Once such project near the Ganga river is go restore a temple and build a complex which is connected to the river directly. Major services will be upgraded to latest modern technology and services like online darshan, pre-booking, personalized guide and similar are available.

Development across various cities and projects under taken to improve the functioning of cities along with public participation is bringing some of the cities to global standards and similar projects are replicated by smaller cities in frontiers of energy, transportation, digitization, cleanliness, hygiene, emergency and healthcare services and centrally operated services.

India is changing with it’s cities becoming smarter and people adopting new technologies. In times to come, some of the cities will be the leaders in many frontiers and set benchmark in city functioning. We wish to see many more such projects unfold and provide comfort to the citizens.
