Dear Narendrabhai Modi Ji

,
Namaskar!

You are a great able leader and visionary that you have wonderfully demonstrated by your surajya for past many years ably leading Gujarat on the march of progress with inclusive growth of all citizens of Gujarat whether one is Hindu Muslim or Dalit. I trust and believe you. Hence, I am writing this letter to you after having studied in India.I know the hard-ships students face and also the Factors which can drive them to excel. Having known the things first-hand I request you to consider this letter; I know though that you are a busy man being the CM of most industrialized state in India i.e. Gujarat. I know that Gujarat has always helped other under developed states of India like Bihar, UP when needed with both money and man-power. In light of this, I have an idea maybe kind of some ambitious plan for development of Gujarat state's goodwill inside India which I will describe in this letter. Also I have one more humble suggestion for you. First and foremost, I deeply feel that Gujarat is the future leader and model which will guide other states and Union Govt. in formulating policies and their implementation. So here it goes, I humbly request you to please establish 4 types of certain educational scholarships (NMGS-NG, NMGS-G, NMGS-I, NMGSPhD) for students in India. I have detailed the specifics in following pages and also the rationale behind it. Whatever there is in following pages is only a humble suggestion I can provide to the best of my ability and knowledge and you can modify in the light of your own knowledge. Lastly, People of India will be greatly indebted if you can implement this and provide them an opportunity for pursuing learning and research at world class level. Also, I want you to please make a comprehensive plan for IT of the Govt. services and websites of Gujarat state Govt. This is necessary for many reasons which I have cited on subsequent pages toward end of this letter.
Dhanyaawad! Jai Gujarat, Jai Hind. Ek Gujarat rajya ka hitaishi aur Bhartiya nagrik. Page 1 of 13

Govt. Websites Most of the websites of Union govt. of India or state Govt. of Gujarat as well are poorly designed, don't use modern web standards like HTML5, does not support latest technology like Tablets/iPads, Smart phones (i.e. Android apps or iPhone), does not adequately support browsers like Firefox, Chrome, etc. There is no Central location to find all information about various Govt. departments. Every department has unique website URL. Moreover the websites are not frequently updated. There is no search facility provided in webpage for finding website contents. There is no single-window website for applying to universities or finding details of Scholarships of Gujarat. Most websites are not pleasantly designed i.e. they proved poor User experience to visitors. You can prepare a task force with people from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad for updating all websites of Gujarat Govt. up to International standards. Also I suggest Gujarat Govt. to learn from International govt. websites like that of France, Germany, UK, and USA. Please also create a Comprehensive website for learning Gujarati with free access to public having audio visual tools as well as e-books. Also create a state recognized exam giving certificate for having proficiency in Gujarati language like Test-DAF (for German), TOEFL/ IELTS/ Cambridge CAE (for English), TCF-DAP/ DALF (for French), etc. Now for formulation of comprehensive plan please look given below sites for inspiration USA :• http://www.usa.gov/ • http://www.opm.gov/ • http://studyusa.com/ • http://mitadmissions.org UK :• • • • • •
