I'm a male Indian citizen of about 40 yrs. I graduated in Civil Engineering and at present 'am working in Public Health Engineering Dept., Assam. I hail from Makum, a small town in Tinsukia district of Assam and now settled in Guwahati, the state capital. I have a happy small family comprising of my wife Bratati, son Anirban and daughter Eeshita.
Rather than doing something big my current objective in life is to render substantial effort for betterment of livlihood patterns of my neighbouring common man. I am interested to develop a group of people who can make the Govt. agencies deliver rather then floating another NGO. After all the tax payer people have a right to be served as per Govt.'s declared policy. I would like to hear from you all about the idea. With your active support and encouragement, I think it is still possible to bring about a radical change to the state of affairs prevailing in our beloved country.
Wish you all the best and regards.
Welcome to the Forum. I think just using the RTI Act can reap benefits for all and move us to better and enlightened governance. Not starting another NGO is good idea.
Right now I am a little preoccupied with securing a lifelong income stream. Once I do that, in about 10/12 months, I too plan to use the RTI, from the comfort of my home, to make a lot of "friends" among the 'Kings'.
