    The man behind telecom revolution in India

    The credit of the telecom revolution goes Rajiv Gandhi, our ex-Prime Minister. It is his initiative to establish the Center for Development of Telematics (C-DOT) in August 1984. This initiative has given chance to telecom to spread from the city to the villages. PCOs were opened everywhere. Even the people of the villages started getting connected with the country and the world. Similarly, he is responsible for the computer revolution also in the country.
    He is the youngest Prime Minister of the country and he did a good job as Prime Minister and had a very painful death in a blast on 21st May 1991.
    On his 76th birthday today, I pay my respects to him and hope that the other members will also join me in paying their tributes to this great personality.

    True. No one can deny that Rajiv Gandhi was the man behind this advancement in communication technology in India that we move with a phone in hand today, walking and talking to people far away. We have lost a great personality who could have lived long to show us developed in India. Let us remember that great leader today on his birthday.

    On this birth anniversary of former PM Rajiv Gandhi the nation pays the respect to the most handsome and most talented young leader of all time. He along with Sam Pitroda brought the telecom revolution in India and today India boast of the big cell phone market for every big brands. However Rajiv is also remembered for his wrong decision to send the so called peace keeping mission to Sri Lanka to protect the Tamils, but the result was reverse as many Tamils lost their lives and that rise to face off with LTTE and later there was pre- planned murder of Rajiv Gandhi at Sriperumbadur in Tamil Nadu. After the death of Indira Gandhi, the sympathetic wave has brought Rajiv Gandhi to power who got 420 seats on his own out of 542 LS seats and thus become most envied leader of the country and abroad.

    Rajiv Gandhi became Prime Minister at a very young age when he was only 40 years old when he was elected to this post. Rajiv Gandhi was a powerful person with a good personality, he believed that there is a great ladder of technology in the development and without which the pace of progress of the country is relatively slow, so he brought a new revolution in the technical field and it was also linked with the industries to start the computer.
    Our tribute is to the great man who dreamed of twenty-first century India in the nineteenth century.
