Politics of Love and Anger

Politics is ever changing and new thoughts, issues, slogans and narrative are coined regularly. The latest narrative being coined by Rahul ji is about politics of love and anger.

“We shall defeat Modiji’s politics of anger by love”.

First of all, let us understand politics of “anger” and what is the origin. India got independent on 1947 and since then India has been growing with its own pace. There has been all around development but pace of development has been very slow. As a result of this even today 30% people live below poverty line and 80% of the total wealth lies with 10% of population. Forget about education, health, shelter etc India could not even provide toilet to all its countrymen in last 70 years. This is the achievement of last 70 years. Should we get angry at this pace of development? Why India could not increase the speed of development? Probably India believed in politics of “love”. Everyone was dealt with love. No one had any accountability. Everyone was free to take his share of undue advantage if he can. Corruption become the way of life and some people think that corruption is their right. Why so? We were following the politics of “Love”.

Even today, the maximum punishment for bureaucrats who do not do their job efficiently is “Transfer”. A big number of people are angry with way India works but could not do much because India was following politics of love. You scratch my back and I yours, let the public go to hell. Every decision maker, from top to bottom, exploited the powers endowed on to him.

I am happy that the first-time politics of anger is being practiced. The government machinery is being forced to do what they have to do. There is more focus of delivery. Previous governments just announced some or other projects and they used to take ages to complete. You will be surprised to know that “Ambedkar Bhawan” which was inaugurated by PM Modi few days back and for which he invited “Neech” comment was started 17 years before. Why it took 17 years? Simply due to politics of “love”.

I agree and endorse Modiji’s politics of anger. If “anger” can make India a better place to live then let it be. I do believe that anger is one emotion, if channelized constructively, can bring in fantastic results. We all should be angry when people do not do their work, we all should be angry when people defecate in open, we all should be angry when government officials ask for bribe, we all should be angry politicians are allowed to get away with any wrong doing. In fact, the politics of “love” simply means encouragement of corruption and absolution from any accountability and responsibility.

The biggest irony is that, in search for politics of love, the politics of hate has taken the center stage. I have never seen so much hatred and animosity among political adversaries. Political adversaries have now become enemies and this must be corrected. Government is run jointly by ruling and opposition parties and both must not abdicate the responsibility of running the government.

Impact of new Economic Initiatives on Human Development Index

I believe that no rules or laws are good enough to trigger the behavioral changes. Behavioral changes in Indian society of 120 crore people is the most difficult task for any government. The present government tried to influence the behaviour by implementing Clean India mission but still a long way to go. 

Though most of economic initiatives of Indian government were aimed at arresting circulation of black money and improve tax collection but its side effects are much more encouraging. Oppositions parties are shouting on top of their voice to raise concerns about state of economy but are unable to visualize the real changes on the ground.

I can visualize effects of new economic initiatives on the spending behavior of common Indian citizen. All sections of society are impacted my some or other economic policies. The economic policy can be designed for any purpose but results in curbing circulation of black money and when ever circulation of black money is curbed, it will be felt by in…

SAP has moved beyond ERP

Majority of people who are aware of SAP think that SAP is just an ERP solution, but it is not true. Over the period of last few years SAP is transformed itself. SAP is now providing Cloud Computing and Digital Solutions. Presently more than 50% of comes from non-ERP.
HANA (High performance analytic appliance) was launched by SAP sometime in 2010 and it has been a very successful tool so far. The biggest benefit of this tool is realised by senior management as the provides real time business information which is essential for prompt decision.

Besides this SAP has also acquired many cloud-centric solutions like Hybris, SuccessFactors, Ariba, Concur and Fieldglass. You will be surprised to know that presently  SAP has more than 200 million users on the cloud.
The core ERP solution is now called S/4HANA. This solu…
