Decentralization of IT

Today Information Technology is not just a wealth creation tool for India. As we see, the contributors to it are from the diverse linguistic and geographical regions, it is flowing through the veins of nation. And that is why the more and more overseas companies are coming here. I said people from diverse background are contributing to it, but I am very sad to say IT has not reached to the geographically remote locations. As we know, IT can grow independent of the accessibility (in geographical sense), it should have reached to the at least district places. In simple language, 'the fruits of the IT have reached to the villages but not the trees of fruits'. Government is trying in that direction but many questions about the basic infrastructure are unattained. Take an example of an organization in Aurangabad, Maharashtra , two years back a software company faced a great loss just because of the unstable electricity in the region. IT don't need the abundant highways like the manufacturing industry, basic communication facilities can help to the great extent. The point is that government should act in a direction to the improve the basic infrastructure in these areas. We have seen IT changing the faces of many cities like Pune and Hyderabad. Let it now change the whole India! Government should not only concentrate on IT but also the other industries like manufacturing, textile, food processing and other so that we get the customers for the IT industry here itself. And also these are the industries which need more human resource, thus we may get good employment opportunities for such remote regions. Let the Indian It industry be self sustaining i.e. servicing our own customers (will take a lot time, but can dream of it) . Let my generation see the 'Trees of IT industry fruits reach to the village', let this paperless industry change face of my 'Rural India' (True India). I will call all this as 'Decentralization of IT' ( inspired by term 'Decentralization of Power' which I learned in my school).

Yeah Its very necessary to decentralize our IT sector to every part of our nation..
During the period of so called globalisms most part of our country is still living their lives in isolation .. far away from the current stream.

I have personally experienced many things.. People away from metropolitan area are still backward and waiting for some miracle ...
My brother is woring in SHahapur .. its Taluqa place just near to mumbai .. means by Local near around 1 hour from Dadar ... Its completely tribal area .. very backward ... people are not getting even primary education .. good health services and some other basic needs .. imagine the place which is placed 1 hour from the city like mumbai .. then what i have to say about other remote places .. which are still struggling for their basic needs ..

When our many young people are talking about Shining India na .. it seems good.. but reality is very different and horrible ..

For actual development of this country, You have to start from root level .. You have to work hard for getting those fruits of our new emerging fields like IT to our rural india...up to the common man ... They are representing our country .. not us.. So we have to work for them..

Everybody is running .. and just running..nobody is looking behind.... but they are forgetting their own people .. just stop for a while .. and look behind to your own country people .. Think for a moment .. and start to do something for them... We IT people really have that guts to do this ... the youth of nation has started taking steps towards this .. many people r doing well... lets be the part of this new revolution..

Lets dream together for India 2020...
