    To : Intellectual people of Himachal Pradesh

    Are we going to creat history of speeches ? . Does it suits to our present needs ?. Are we qualified for the purpose of delivering impressive speeches ?

    All in question are the intellectual people of the state , diplomats , leaders , planners and citizens . Its very surprising that rulers of the state spell that ,,, we should do this ,,, that etc . but why not these gentleman give directives for moderanisation like computer education instead of so controversial History at certain standard. Govt employees want allowances on introduction of computer without even learning .

    Our leaders assemble in one place to listen about that we should do this and that … but who will do… the rulers of the state or people of the state.

    Take an example of industrial growth in Uttranchal inspite of the fact that same exemptions were granted to well . We feel it in Delhi when we see the drive of Uttranchal Govt highlight it in Delhi to woo various Industrialist but our Govt . in H.P is busy in blaming each other instead of looking for MAJOR instrial players to set up their units.

    On the front of IT industry we fail miserably inspite of good environmental conditions like Silicon valley

    Whenwill we really start growing.

    GOD knows !

    Mr Nadda has rightly pointed towards the routine normative speeches of the people who are at the helm of affairs.

    People like Chandrababu Naidu may fail in politics, but will be always appreciated and remembered for their visionay and action oriented approach.

    Powerful present may avoid the direct criticism but the future definitely evaluates the contribution of people at high positions without any bias and fear, when the history is written and analyzed.
