Mobile Economy

I have Nokia 510 with Windows 7.8 operating system. I have one SIM card. I neither have two devices or two SIM cards. I had mobiles purchased earlier, but these I have successfully managed to give to my family members. Resources should not be wasted. They should be used wisely.
Each of the mobile / software combination has its own advantages. One cannot have enough of these. If Nokia-Windows promises to give you blur free photographs using advanced hardware and software, Samsung supplies digital pen with some of their devices to develop the artist in you. Then we have Apple with their own high standard audio and video. As a programmer one tends to admire Samsung / Android as these promote free, liberal thinking programmers. Apple and Windows have employees as programmers.
One must realise that we cannot go on manufacturing and allow imports of mobile devices. The government and controlling military is stupid if it thinks that they will satisfy public demands. Instead the government and military command should help the big companies to initiate common hardware and software standard for India. We are a large nation and not scared sheep in lion's garb.

Food Security Bill

Economy can be difficult. It is mainly about demand.
In India education and jobs do not require much effort from the politicians. They need not help. The demand from public is so much that education happens. Getting into a job also happens, though may not to the extent of education. These are self driven economies and only opposition we have to these is the dissatisfaction of the people. One may say I did not get right education. Or I did not get right job. These grudges will get a patient hearing only when you are a vote bank. The caste factor. Upper caste people normally are pushed behind by this demand of the public. The merit system may not work.
What about food? One cannot run in an empty stomach and find food. There has to be food security. Amartya Sen, Nobel prize economist quite rightly has advocated for food security bill. He said in one interview that we have enough gold in our country and food security bill should be passed.
Another brilliant thing is the view of the communists. If people in high places are unable to bear grudges against each other then they have to get rid of this grudges first. This would mean that no difference in people are there in economic terms. Every people has similar demand and have equal opportunity to fulfil this demand.
Let us hope that better sense prevails and politicians join hands together and bring into reality Smt. Sonia Gandhi's dream of Food Security Bill.
