I loved blogging when I was in IIT Kanpur. Infact, I tried to jot down my thoughts and post articles on this blog till 2012, four years after my under graduation. However, it has been 6 long years that I posted anything on this blog. I was slightly wary of the regulations government has towards free expression of ideas of civil servants. However, it was also because of huge influx of work as soon as I joined the Indian bureaucracy. Yes, there is a lot of work in government.
Now, when I look back at the six years, I am still amazed as to how the government functions, the enormous challenges it faces and how can we possibly improve government functioning. Also, a thought which only becomes stronger and stronger as i work is the incredible role technology and computing plays to improve the functioning of the government. I have a firm belief that adopting technology and using it effectively can be a very potent tool for improving government processes. I will jot more points on this and write more about this in my future articles.
