Dr. Kalam wanted to meet all the NGO representatives to know more about the organizations .

Blossom is also part of the Action 2020 team and our representatives (mohan & Arun) are also meeting Dr.Kalam tomorrow. And its good to see a great man interested in the NGO’s works and inspiring them by his commitment and his activities.

The meeting is scheduled on 7th Oct 2009 , 8.15 pm at RAJ BHAVAN, Chennai and the time given was one hour. And we wish the meeting should be extended for some more time. So that we can get some more ideas from Dr.Kalam to proceed further. Happy to be a part of Action 2020 and happy to meet Dr.Kalam. Let me update with the happenings soon.

Will you be Remembered ?

Got to read an article about the speech given by  Dr.Kalam  to 2007 batch IAS trainees at Mussoorie. Here goes the direct points from him…..

  • I visualize a scene “What the IAS officers of 2007 batch will be remembered for?” Will you be remembered for a visionary action for the nation?
  • Will you be remembered for revitalizing or revolutionizing in your district, the integrated Primary Health care  Centre as a Public-private-partnership?
  • Will you be remembered for working and creating a scheme in partnership with agriculture research institutes, extension workers and farmers for doubling output of food-grains in your district and thereby increasing the per capita income of each of the farmers?
  • Will you be remembered for ensuring that dropout from schools in your district reaches virtually to zero through your innovative actions?
  • Will you be remembered for making your district a fossil fuel free district? That means, villages in your district will transformed into bio-wind-solar villages.
  • Will you be remembered for establishing number of PURA complexes (Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas) in your district? This will provide physical, electronic and knowledge connectivity leading to economic connectivity that is enhanced earning capacity of the rural citizens.

A perfect and meaning full content I have read in recent times. I wish every IAS officers should be remembered at-least for one of the above said points.

And good news is Dr.Kalam wanted to add more NGO’s with India Vision 2020 and seems that he asked Mr.Srinivasan of India Vision 2020 to add more NGO’s for working together. And hence Blossom has also got a invitation to join with them. And its our pleasure to join them. 🙂
