46th Week@XIMB

46th Week@XIMB - 22nd April to 28th April, 2012

22nd April - Sunday is a day of relaxation and updating with new changes in the community of rural managers. The result of XIMB 2012-2014 batch is declared few days. Currently, I am hopeful for the wait-list movement till 40 as the intake capacity is only 60 this year.

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on 16th March allocated Rs 25 crore to Institute of Rural Management, Anand (IRMA), for revamping the institute, in the General Budget for financial year 2012-13. I hope, they will capitalize on this grant and 'must' open their subsidiary in another part of the India. There is dire need to form a network of various schools of development and rural management. IRMA, XIMB and TISS are only big names in this playground. XISS, NIRD, XIDAS,IIRM and Azim Premji University need to collaborate together for forming a strong network of institutions.

23rd April - I took a day off from work and stayed in Lucknow only. No one is bothered either about me or my work there. Its just a paper work for them!

24th April - I reached Bhind today. 35 Km road distance between Etawah and Bhind was covered in 3.5 hours with sufficient intake of dust particles. The infrastructure development of rail and road is going on slowly around Bhind region in last 10 years. 65 years of the Independence and the rail connectivity is not established between these two districts. It simply tells story of the development of rural hinterland in an independent India.

No luck related to work today. RTO officer was absent and there was no response from Public relation office. Some of the data is obtained in Revenue department. There is no provision of transport from government to me. I have moved to new hotel due to the lack of proper accommodation facilities. Hotel Satkaar near District hospital is a nice and safe place to stay.

25th April - Health Department was covered today. The access part is easy but getting data is tough job. Most of the people around here are cooperative in the words, that's my only solace.I visited city market for a getting a brief idea of the rural market. There were shops of daily goods, jewelers and clothes. I was delighted to see few cyber cafes and computer shop. I am more convinced about cluster based activities be it production or retail shops. Cluster based activities not only initiate competition but helps in developing market.

26th April - Agriculture and Homeguard Department were on the target today. One department doesn't have photocopy machine and other doesn't have photocopy machine in the working condition. How can a government employee work efficiently without such facilities ?

27th April - I collected all the available data on the internet about Bhind district. Not much is available but a decent staff at NIC provided me with all their data. ADM was on in inspection in the district and few government employee were caught sleeping.

28th April - It was last working day of the week. I was still busy in collection of the data. The time duration and working speed can affect to the quality of final draft of the report. Phone number of Blood bank is not working and there is not even registration of marriage houses in this district. What to say more, this is the end !
