I was browsing through Nandan Nilekani’s blog and a strange thing struck me. I saw the maximum number of comments where Nandan has replied to comments and when he left this habit slowly the number of people posting their comments decreased. New people to blog like me posted in search of answers and some ‘publicity’ but the gates are closed as if we are apsaras, experts like those in his blogroll are like Menekas and Nandan, the Vishwamitra who doesn’t budge from his penance of not replying. I hope the Rambha for this blog comes soon so that we are able to talk to him at least once. I know he is very busy but he can respond to first three comments, or comments from experts at least.
AN APPEAL TO FELLOW BLOGGERS AND VISITORS KINDLY POST THIS MESSAGE AT NANDAN’S BLOG OR MAIL IT TO HIM. I WON’T DO THAT BECAUSE I HAVE HAD ENOUGH PUBLICITY ALREADY. AND BEWARE OF COMMENTING ON HIS BLOG IN THE FUTURE, NO RESPONSES GUARANTEED (BUT PUBLICITY IS)! THIS IS NOT HATE MAIL BUT AN HONEST ANALYSIS! I AM NOT SEEKING REPLY FOR MY POST, DEFINITELY NOT, WHO AM I, WHAT AM I, TO ASK FOR IT?

Thanks for the great responses, and your kind wishes. I won’t be able to respond to all of the comments, but will try to be as thorough as possible.
Ranganathan: I fully agree about ordinary Indians having to take up extraordinary roles. We’ve often focused too much on our successes than on our challenges. Being an Indian citizen means accepting both.
Meenakshi: Reiterating my response to
Pushpraj Singh: I agree that Indian companies must do a lot more, the way American businesses involve themselves in philanthropy. Infosys has tried to do this with its Foundation. But development needs both business and government - neither can survive without the other. Both have to take up more effective roles.
Prodipto Roy: You are right that
Rajiv Ranjan: Yes,the book should be out in Hindi (and other Indian languages) soon. I would like to reach as many people as I can.
