TMCNet:  Rahul invokes Gandhi to counter Modi

Rahul invokes Gandhi to counter Modi

Dec 12, 2012 (Hindustan Times - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday juxtaposed Gandhian thought with Narendra Modi's governance model to show it as elitist, exclusive and antithetical to the Mahatma's values. Addressing a rally in the town that's home to the Tata Nano factory on the day the first phase of electioneering in Gujarat drew to a close, Rahul tore into the Gujarat chief minister without once naming the BJP mascot.

"Gandhi was a man of tolerance. He heard even the British whom he fought. But you have no voice in present day Gujarat," he said amid shouts of approval.

"You're told only one man is taking Gujarat forward-people do nothing. This is crass marketing (of a persona)," he charged.

"He (Modi) is mad," screamed a clutch of youth. Rahul restrained them: "Don't use such language. It isn't civil." Rahul built the contrast by dwelling on the UPA's schemes for the aam aadmi. "Who gave you the mobile phone with which you are taking my pictures " he asked a man perched on the barricade. "Rajiv Gandhi," he replied.

"People told Rajivji that nobody listens to them. So he gave you the phone. He was helped in that by a Gujarati, Sam Pitroda," he said.

Rahul mocked the Modi cult, comparing him with a man who'd look at another person's watch and tell him the time. In the same vein he credited Gujarat's women with the white revolution.

"You work and he (Modi) steals the credit," he said, asking whether people got Nano cars in return for the Rs. 60,000 of public money going into the making of every car. "Hamey Nano nahin chahiye. Hum Rs. 60,000 wapas lenge, (We don't want the Nano. Return our Rs. 60,000,") responded the audience.

The Congress general secretary engaged with his audience, drawing them out on issues touching their lives. A communicator more than an orator-that's what he was for the 20-odd minutes that he spoke.

He broke the ice with the gathering with a story he'd heard from Rajiv Gandhi about Pandit Nehru's initiation into the freedom struggle. Motilal Nehru was already worried about the course his son's life would take under Gandhi's influence. Amid that came Panditji's arrest by the British.

Motilal's views changed for good when on a sleepless night, he passed by Gandhi's quarters at Anand Bhawan, the Nehru residence in Allahabad. He found the Mahatma sprawled on the floor in the punishing winter.

"Gandhiji told Motilalji: how could he sleep on a bed while Nehru spent wintry nights on the floor in jail," said Rahul.

"That's the history of Gujarat and Gandhi who epitomised compassion. Kal jo election hain woh bhi Gandhi ke dein hain." ___ (c)2012 the Hindustan Times (New Delhi) Visit the Hindustan Times (New Delhi) at www.hindustantimes.com Distributed by MCT Information Services

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
