Shame NTRO !!

How many of us have heard of the “National Technical Research Organization”? Ideally none. Well for starters it is the commission that the Kargil committee had thought was an “absolute necessity” to stop cyber crime and track emails sent out by terrorist organizations.

According to this one newspaper article, all the old horses of the DRDO, IPS (and the sorts) are heading it. Well even in this area India seems to have chosen the grey haired paunchy uncle to the sauve and tech savvy young turk. With the recent spate of bombs blowing up Indian besiness and technical hubs, the NTRO has been caught day dreaming at its job.

Think of the audacity of the Indian Mujahideen to have sent an email just 5 minutes before detonating 17 bombs in Ahmedabad. Forget about Ahmedabad, Bangalore was also caught on the wrong foot when it came to intercepting the terrorist email ( there goes the effort of all those IT engineers down the drain !!).

After the disaster at Ahmedabad and Bangalore, Kolkata was caught in a tizzy when on the 29th of July an email, sent supposedly by the Indian Mujahideen, was received by a television channel saying that it had planted bombs in major areas of the city and would blow to splinters the High Court, Writer’s Building, suburb of Saltlake (coincidentally that’s where I live !!!) and Park Street.

And this was to happen at the stroke of 10:00 pm. It even mentioned the car and its licence number that would be used. Within minutes of this information the city was in a state of panick. And by 9:30 pm the streets of Kolkata were deserted. It seemed like Pompeii after the Vesuvius erupted.

All the babus of the KPS (Kolkata Police Services) were woken up from their slumber and seen on the streets (very rare sight !!) frisking all and sundry. So after everyone was sitting at home and nervously anticipating the loud bang…..NOTHING HAPPENED.

The breaking news was that a prankster had sent out the panick email that had gripped the city in terror. Another instance when the NTRO was caught snoozing when expected to work. Now the entire management of the NTRO is playing the blame game (as usual) and dissidents are talking of it as being a major failure.

It has an annual budget of Rs. 700 crores and this is what it churns out?? I tried finding out more about the NTRO and its policies and who all are heading it. But in vain. All I got was the full form of the acronym.

When will India wake up to the need of educating its officials about cyber law and its nitty-gritties? IT Act, 2000, has so may loopholes and is so sketchy that its a shame. We still seem to be ignorant when it comes to the internet and crimes perpetuated through it. God help us in the future. Amen!!

    14. Thanks for your article. Another factor is that being photographer involves not only difficulty in recording award-winning photographs but also hardships in establishing the best dslr camera suited to your needs and most especially situations in maintaining the quality of your camera. This is certainly very accurate and apparent for those photography lovers that are in capturing the actual nature’s eye-catching scenes — the mountains, the forests, the wild and the seas. Visiting these amazing places undoubtedly requires a dslr camera that can meet the wild’s severe environments.

      Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    25. I view something really interesting about your web site so I saved to fav.

    26. I love your writing style really loving this website.

    27. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
