The Readiness for the Future of Production Assessment (Industry 4.0)

Key Hypotheses

The Readiness for the Future of Production Assessment (Industry 4.0) developed by WEF is
intended to stimulate discussion and advance further research.
There are two key hypotheses and working assumptions
that are fundamental to the assessment’s framework that needs to
be tested and researched over time.

1. The most important drivers of future readiness are Technology & Innovation, Human Capital, Institutional Framework and Global Trade & Investment.

2. Scale is not a prerequisite for future readiness.

The motivation to write this knol is an orkut community:
Dharma Marga
The community is started by Pravin Choudhary .
He goes through every post in the community and responds to the posts every day. I try to follow his method for the communities that I started. But I can't match his routine.
The message Mr. Pravin Choudhary gives in his community profile is:
Today we have made ourselves too busy to care on religious values. Our attempt to talk over the piousness of every religion and spread the message of love and brotherhood for all human beings. We trust very strongly in 'All Religions are Same!' Sincerely we hate none. We hate all talk which divides us. Variations in religions must be tolerated and respected.  Wisdom must be shared as service to mankind.
Share your beautiful thoughts with all and learn good from all.
Dharmo Rakshati Rakshithaha
If you protect Dharma, Dharma will in turn protect you.
While I started writing on vedas beforehand, this community has a role to play in developing focus on behavior aspect. 
Hindu Dharma is based on Vedas. All the smrities and sutras are based on Vedas only. They elaborated the essential things in Vedas to make them more lucid and also to present their applications to contemporary issues.
My selection of 1000 statements from Sukla Yajurveda (Sukla yajurveda Sahasram) is also to further the same objective. It aims to bring before the current day public the behavioural prescrptions of Veda. It provides an opportunity to present managers of societies and other large groups to understand their implications for present day practice and come out with guidelines to their group members.
The directory of veda chapters written so far. (19th chapter is in progress now).
Directory Veda Knols - Sukla Yajurveda Sahasram
According to me brahmacharyam is learning period. Every child is to go through brahmacharyam before becoming a householder. Persons who want to study vedas go through a process of sankalpa called upanayanam. But according to me every child is to go through brahmacharyam. Every child has to learn something to earn his livelihood as well as to take care of himself and his family members in day to day life.
According to me sanyasi is a person who gives great service to the society but in return he expects very little from the society. A small piece of cloth to cover his secret parts is all he needs. He wants food at the time of lunch. He does not want a permanent house and he does not want any other comforts. He is prepared to use free goods that the nature provides and survive till God or nature allows him to survive. For a sanyasi, service to the society is service to God. In old age, our shastras say to people to take up sanyas. Give all wealth to children and expect very little from them.

It remains to be seen whether skills minister Dharmendra Pradhan, with his junior Anant Kumar Hegde, Santosh Gangwar as labour minister, and Giriraj Singh as MoS (independent charge) of MSME can deliver on employment generation

We have a work order worth Rs 6 lakh crore — Rs 1.5 lakh crore work in the shipping sector and Rs 4-4.5 lakh crore in the road and transport sector. When there is an investment of Rs 1 lakh crore, 10 lakh people will get direct employment. So, if we have done work worth Rs 6 lakh crore, then we will give jobs to 60 lakh people.

What the Prime Minister Modi said on 31 December 2017 (Mann Ki Baat) Regarding  #PositiveIndia?

Mann Ki Baat 31 December 2017

Heartiest New Year greetings to all of you.
Wishing the nation his greetings for the new year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that it was time to transform the country from 'Positive India' to 'Progressive India',  Wishing the nation his greetings for the new year.

My dear countrymen, I had talked about positivity during the previous episode of Mann Ki Baat. I am being reminded of one Sanskrit Shloka-

Utsaaho balwaanarya, Naastyutsaahaatparam balam |
Sotsaahasya cha lokeshu na kinchidapi durlabham ||

This means that a man full of enthusiasm is very strong since there is nothing more powerful than zest. Nothing is impossible for a man having positivity and zeal. In English too, it is said, ‘Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power’. During the previous episode of Mann Ki Baat, I had appealed to the countrymen to share their positive moments of 2017 and to welcome 2018 in a positive atmosphere.

I am very glad that a large number of people gave positive responses on social media platform, MyGov and the Narendra Modi App and shared their experiences. Lakhs of tweets were posted on Positive India hashtag (#), which reached out to more than nearly 150 crore people. In a way, a wave of positivity which emanated from India spread all over the world. All tweets and responses received were really inspiring. It was indeed a delightful experience. Some countrymen shared those incidents of this year which left a special impact on their minds, a very positive one at that. Some people even shared their personal achievements.

Let us enter into the New Year with such little achievements, begin our New Year and take a concrete steps in the journey from ‘Positive India’ to ‘Progressive India’.
