I am embarking on a new literary project. This is a Marathi book with "20*20" as the title. Apart from the usual 20/20 or 6/6 perfect vision or "India 2020" vision, the title is so because I am going to compile 20 stellar profiles of young budding Marathi administrators along with 20 implementable and practical ideas collected from Marathi folks for betterment of India. Hence the name of the book is "20*20".
These 20 profiles are young boys and girls who are in the age group 20-26 years and have excelled at the UPSC / MPSC / NDA/ AFMC exams recently and have come up from really challenging backgrounds. Each one of them is an eye-opener personally for me and each will be a story of triumph and sheer perseverence for a larger Marathi readership.
The other half of the book, I invite Marathi folks worldover (including India) to suggest practical and implementable ideas, those can be used in public/ private sector in India. These ideas need not be your own creation, but something that you may have heard about, seen to work, and you believe that may be useful in India, may be with a modification. A couple of such examples would be put up on the website of the project soon. These ideas may be from your own expertise areas, or in the areas where you have strong opinions.
I anticipate that I will receive a lot of ideas in various fields including better administration, better social policies, science, IT, economic policies, Legal and NGO sector as well. The ideas will come from all 6 continents as I have received articles for my other projects before.
An eminent panel will evaluate all the ideas for their practicality, impact, and implemetability and select the top 20 for the book. The eminent panel comprises:
Dr Raghunath Mashelkar, Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, Dr. Narendra Jadhav, Mr Avinash Dharmadhikari (IAS), Mr. Pratap Rao Pawar, Dr. Nirmala Pandit, and Mrs. Anjali Bhagwat, all stellar personalities of international repute.
I am attaching the official flyer for your perusal. I invite you to participate yourself and also to spread the word. Let good ideas come from all directions!!
