Computer literacy - A need for India's Progress!

My dear Fellow Indians, This one is especially for you! Do spare a few minutes to read. If you do not have them now, Spare them Later. Do not ignore. This article may not enlighten you, but will awaken you for sure. If you are prepared, READ ON!

You are reader no. : sujit lalwani

The time is ticking in the direction, it started long ago. India got its independence long ago, about 60 years ago, in 1947. Ever since then lots of things have changed in our country. Only thing that has not changed is the status of the country - It is still 'developing'. My father got his one mark and i got mine for answering this fill in the blank - "India is _______ Country". I just hope when my son/daughter writes - "developing", they lose their one mark. A father wanting his kids to lose marks? I wish this came true. Would be the wish of all of us reading this article right now :-)

Internet started about 20 years ago, it celebrated its 20th birthday on 13th Of March this year. Computers came into existence about a few decades ago. America/japan or other developed countries are at peaks in using computers and technology for their progress. India truly lacks that.

My dear friends, Just try picturing this on your mind, When one fellow indian 'A' of our country is talking about tweeting/blogging/cloud computing etc. The other fellow indian 'B' does not even know what a computer is. The irony of the situation is 'B' form about 93.88% of our country's population. If you visit any developed country - they talk about more than 60-70% computer literacy in their countries. With understanding of computers comes understanding of internet along with which comes speed of communication, which ultimately brings along speed in business and hence a quick progressing economy.

The technology is growing at a pace, that in few years from now, it would be difficult for the computer aware (not greatly aware) people itself to catch up with the progress, Imagine our fellow indian, then, just getting to know about computers. Millions of Fashions would have come and gone on the internet, and exactly when our fellow indian would be feeling like an alien and out of place with all these things.

If each of us make an effort to teach others unaware about it, through platforms, then we can make a differnce to the nation's computer literacy rate. If the gap between A & B, is not bridged up in the next five years, It will be a near to impossible task to push the country to greater heights, for advancement of technology and progress of internet are faster than speed of light right now. It already requires drastic steps to push the computer literacy higher.

Come friends lets make the coming india a better place for our further generations and teach/make aware as many people as we can about computers and internet in whatever liesure time we have. If you are wondering what difference would it make. Like everything we did, made a big difference. Let this one do it, atleast!

In this regards I would love to appreciate the efforts of eBIZ.Com Pvt. Ltd. a company based Noida, near Delhi, started in 2001 has a lot of committed leaders working towards the progress of computer literacy in the country, with their mission, EACH ONE TEACH TWO. Lets join hands with such people. Lets make a differnce. For more info contact me @ lalwani14287@gmail.com.

My dear Friends that fellow indian B could be your friend, neighbour, maid at home, office boy, or your own family member. Lets start by first creating a family of computer aware people.

PS : Am happy to say, before I write this article, with the help of my team - I have reached across 15,000 underprivileged people across the country with free of cost computer education

Once technology in the form of basic computer awareness reaches the grass root levels in the country the progress in the technology will be something that this grown society of our country, atleast will be in a far better position to handle than today. LETS EMPOWER OUR NATION!

  2. some tips for energy consumption,
    Increasing Graphics Performance

    By default, WindowsXP turns on a lot of shadows, fades, slides etc to menu items.
    Most simply slow down their display.

    To turn these off selectively:

    Right click on the My Computer icon
    Select Properties
    Click on the Advanced tab
    Under Performance, click on the Settings button
    To turn them all of, select Adjust for best performance
    My preference is to leave them all off except for Show shadows under mouse pointer and Show window contents while dragging

  6. some more tips for energy energy consumptions.
    1)say you are you using a web browser, suddenly you have some work you may just turn off the screen and attend the work. before doing that just minimize the window of the web browser. this will help your ram increase by almost twice the program running.
    how?
    just open task manager[tm][alt+ctrl+delete] now when using web browser in maximized form just see in the tm and right click go to process and see mem usage. it will be some 1000's k means in kilo bytes. now just click the minimize button on the web browser, and check the tm. now the mem usage will be almost reduced to half.

    2) use this website as default "blackle.com" this is same as google.com except that it will be in black and there will be more than 1 million watts saved.
    how?
    this website uses only black colour. unlike other websites with white mostly. white uses more power for display and black uses very much less power compared to white. most of all white will affect our eye if we use it for long time, but black don't.
    i just ask you to set blackle.com as your homepage and use it as default google search.
    3)now choosing the computers. lets say dell or apple, which on as more energy efficient?
    i say apple. dell says that it has epeat gold studio hybrid desktops it has 70% less power consumption and up to 95 percent recyclable. latitude e-sires laptops, optiplexdesktops stating energy efficiency and the reduction or elimination of harmful materials like BFR/PVC and mercury. 220 million kilo watts will be saved in 2010 and 2011 combined. it has got ENERGY STAR, TCO eco-label, Blue Angel[Germany’s environmental label], PC3R[ecolabel developed by the PC
    industry in Japan], The China Energy Conservation Program (CECP), The Climate Savers Computing Initiative’s (CSCI). for more about dell "http://content.dell.com/us/en/corp/d/corp-comm/earth-products-standards.aspx"
    in apple the legendary company.
    first is their small and light weight products. they have got ENERGY STAR, Reducing packaging, Removing toxins, Recyclable materials, Fewer cables, Safer batteries, and goes on.
    unlike dell it has detailed information about its environment status. for complete information http://www.apple.com/environment/recycling/
    I'm intending to say that next time deciding about buying a computer please choose apple as it has got far more recycling abilities.
    thank you...
