Since last four five years everybody knows that Delhi is going to host the most prestigious Commonwealth Games 2010 and government has already made lots of efforts for the same. Thousand crores of rupees have been spent to raise infrastructure for the games but still as per the international standards and commonwealth games managing committee Delhi is not ready till date and now when only one and half year (approx.) is available with us what we can hope. I think government will spend extra money and put too much extra man power to complete infrastructure related projects. Few fortnights back their is a news that Delhi do not have sufficient number of hotels to accommodate the commonwealth games visitors. Metro is also not connected to International Airport and Commonwealth Games Village and stadium hosting various events. Many flyover and road projects are also running long behind their schedules and about traffic management it is hard to say anything. Nobody knows what the government have planned for traffic management. Regarding cleaning of River Yamuna Delhi Government is working since last 5-10 years as per the instruction of Courts but the results are zero. I think India should work with the help of experts of Beijing Olympics so that we we will India can present an example in front of whole world about its claim for next Olympics.
Will Delhi be ready?
Happy Christmas to all of you.?

Dear ISC Members,
I am presenting a article which came to me in my office email id regarding the Power Saving speech given by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. I am writing this resource as it.
a Think Green Initiative
Be the Change you want to see!
To all those who do not TURN OFF their PCs, ACs & Lights before leaving the office....
Most of use from the IT field do one thing before leaving for the day from office, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and leave happily. That means your PC is still ON.
One Normal PC in Sleep Mode (Hibernation) will consume 35Watts/hour. Based on this let's do a small calculation.
For One week, 24*7=168 Hours. Of this if we consider that we are working for 68 hours, then the PC is in Sleep Mode for 100 hours a week.
For one month, 4*100=400 hours. In a normal IT office, if we assume approximately 250 PCs are there, 250*400=1,00,000 hours (Sleep Mode), So power wasted in an office in a month is 1,00,000*35=3500KWH or units. If the charge per unit is Indian Rs 6, then totally the wastage value is approximately Indian Rs 21,000.
Here the sad thing is not the money loss to the company but the power loss to the country. (Hope no company bothered about this procedure of keeping the system in sleep mode)
Apart from the loss to the country, we need to think of the efforts people are putting for producing the power in Mines, Thermal Stations, Hydro Electric Stations etc. If this is to continue, the cost of unit will go up, at one stage, we will not get power even if we are ready to pay any cost.
So, before leaving office, take some time to shut down the PC and do some favour to the COUNTRY and the organisation.
If you feel that this point is to be considered, forward this to all your friends.
**Source - email received in my Office. I request Editors to Approve this Resource.
So Members, I think we can help our Country at least by doing this favour.
I would like to say that if you can not implement the steps in your organisation please implement it at your own seat, as the individual initiative also makes a big difference.

Two years back i opted for a new mobile/cellphone connection from one of the reputed company under two years advance rental plan. After two years and 10 days they sent a letter to me that your plan has expired and please select new plan as I was not interested to continue with this number/telephone service provider i requested them to disconnect this number but they said I need to pay two bills as per new plan allocated to me without my wish otherwise the number/services would be not terminated. In short it is forced on me to pay extra without any usage. I want to say that government should make a policy that these private telephone companies do not exploit the customers through their wrong means and ways. Companies should inform the customer in 15 days advance about expiry of last date and only after that they should ask for payments.
Please suggest me whether i should pay the amount or not. Can I take some legal action against company for this mental / financial harassment. Can RTI may be used as a tool against this exploitation.

I read following lines by someone on rediff.com in a article and found these lines very true, please go through these lines and express your views on the same.
An Olympic shooter wins Gold (Only a game) & Government gives him 3 Crores
Another Shooter dies, fighting with terrorists (Saving our country and our live) & government pays his family 5 lakhs.
1. Do not worry about those who have come thru boats...
Our forces can easily defeat them.
WORRY about those who have come thru votes....
Those are our REAL ENEMIES....
2. What a shame and disgrace to every citizen of India that the elite
NSG Force was transported into ordinary BEST buses, whereas our
cricketers are transported into state of the art luxury buses, these
Jawans lay down their lives to protect every Indian and these cricketers
get paid even if they lose a match, we worship these cricketers and
forget the martyrdom of these brave Jawans.
The Jawans should be paid the salaries of the cricketers and the
cricketers should be paid the salaries of the Jawans.
3. An ace shooter shoots and gets gold medal, govt gives 3cr, another
shooter dies while shooting terrorist, govt gives 5 lakh.
WHO DESERVES MORE? Huh.. This is our India....
4. Too much spent on Politicians security but too less on common man.
Please be a patriot and forward this to everyone u know.
Really great!!!!!!!!!!! Hats off to India !!!!!!!!!!!!
AND THE MEDIA SHOULD FORGET ABOUT MUMBAI NOW AND PUBLISH OTHER NEWS

First bailout package by Indian Government is announced yesterday amounting to Rs.35000 crores. Package will reduce the prices of cars and other consumer products. Government reduced central Value Added Tax. Package is aimed to give boost to real estate, exports, auto, textiles, other industries and highways. It should help generate jobs in the textiles sector, the largest employer among industries. Reserve Bank had already announced the cut in CRR (Cash Reserve Ratio) and Repo Rate. Further the decision regarding the cut in petrol and diesel prices is likely to be announced soon. Industries also announced that all the tax benefit will be passe3d to consumers. Package is announced by Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
Did the announcement of package indicate that India is also under recession and affected by Global Financial Crisis. It means that in next year the India will be also under big stress like the USA.

Commercialization of Education is on boom in India these days and its starting was from the days of boom in IT Sector when many private companies opened their computer training centre giving diplomas and degrees in various town & cities of every state. Most of which failed and run away with hard earned money of peoples. Similarly the concept of Distance Education launched by government in its various universities is purely business model behind it because whenever a students miss any deadline he have to pay the fines but if university misses all deadlines no measures will be taken in that case. I myself have gone through a graduate distance programme from Guru Jambeshwar University, Hisar, Haryana and I never received the study material on time I have to pay the fees by end of august but I always received material in the last week of January. In last year of course for one subject A soft copy (CD) of that subject received to me only two days before the exam. I want to say that when government universities will act in this manner what can be said about the private institutions. Universities are making money out of distance courses but nor providing services to the students. Dispatch of syllabus, study material is not done. No deadlines are mentioned for the staff to provide books and other required things to students on time. Last year one student doing M.Com from Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak through Distance Programme and gone to collect study material at the study centre in December , he received only three books out of six subject and told that university had printed only 3 books and rest of the books are not printed and given by university. What the university is charging for, when they do not give study material to the students it means they are just selling degrees, its shameful that no body is their to take care of these things. No one is raising a voice against them. M.Com (final) year syllabus is not sent by university and neither it is available on DDE site/MDU site. I think no audit system is their for all these things.
Staff involved in printing of study material eats the money and which is clearly corruption. I want to say please don't break the backbone of education as it will lead to disaster.

Now Mr. P Chidambaram has taken control of Home Ministry and Mr. Shivraj Patil resigned by taking moral responsibility for Mumbai attacks. Other Parties too have started making comments and Prime Minister himself have called all party meeting in which he talked about setting up of a federal agency and increased co-ordination between navy, coast guard and other agencies. He also announced for setting up of four centres of National Security Guard in various part of country but I want to know why these steps have not been taken earlier and after Jaipur, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Delhi Blasts. We all knows the speed of work in government system, did government working against any deadline to complete the setup of federal agency. In how much time NSG centres will be setup and in which areas.
Government have also not taken any measure steps against Senior Intelligence Officials of IB (Intelligence Bureau) & RAW (Research & Analysis Wing). Why always these agencies fails to give accurate information.
When everybody is aware that after Delhi Blasts, Mumbai is on hit list of terrorists why the security is not strengthened and what steps have been taken by Government when they received information that attacked may be by sea route.
I know that everyone will forget and calms down , all political parties will forget about it and speak about new topics. Security agencies will also got relaxed and the terrorist will take benefit of it and will prepare themselves to attack me, you and our nation, why we do not eliminate the terrorist camp working outside India by hitting them hard. All the peace process steps between India and Pakistan must be need to be reviewed again.
Lets see what happens till the end of this year.
