Indian census : Slow And Steady Lose the Race
Indian census department does census after every ten years Since 1881 But when it was started by britishers their aims was to make very thing accountable from India, so they made it inquiry based census rather than interaction based. But sorry state of Indian census is that even after 60 years of independence it is still persists with same britishers psyche and not able to make its demographical data in interactive forms as its counter parts in all over globe are doing.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />Census of any nation is the action target platform of any nation and it should be prepare with care because error in this can derail the future development of our nation.Are we taking care of our future national planning?As I have above mentioned that error in national census can derail our national planning, but as my question asks, are we taking it serious?My observation that, we are not a single point serious about it, Even our census work has been carried out by additional officials and officers who have already entangled in their original works like revenue officials, teachers and Bureaucrats like District Magistrates, and senior officers.The soul of any census is the last data collectors who really collect data from fields. The job of them is highly specialized one should not be the work of those workers who have some other considerations in their priority and this national census they take as extra burden on them thus try to do it with least motivation to dedication towards this national duty.In some cases these end data collectors (teachers and revenue junior officials) hire some others from local area to get the query forms filled as their have influence over them because these locals have to meet them for day to day work.As citizens we have not yet understand the importance and relevance of national census to our over all development as global citizens. There fore we are ignoring the facts which are the fundamental of our national development.Our Government is not deeding towards it and just fallowing its colonial masters in ditto (For them census was to get all information about revenue collections and bringing all citizens on the books to keep their authority intact).
