MindYourBusyNess: E Governance

E Governance

‘Divide to rule’ is a known principle which has been used by many rulers. The rule of foreigners on India for centuries is an example of the effectiveness of this principle.
The principle, though very old, is being used by many employers, governments & lending agencies even today.

These agencies do not let their subjects unite on any cost. They work against the formation and growth of forums where aggrieved subjects tend to unite. They try to knock down or calm down the most active members of such forums.

Yet there are some progressive organizations which have realized that this old fashioned thought of ‘ruling’ is not going to be very effective in today’s information age. The governance is now also a business like any other business and has to be performed as a job. If you have given employment or lent your money to someone, you have offered your services and it is a contract between two parties -an organization and an individual.  Both the parties have to treat the other party with dignity and respect.

Most of the business is turning global now, thanks to the advancements in technology. In fact, technology has emerged as one of the binding forces in modern time. The new generation of technology savvy business persons believes in sharing & connecting. In place of ‘divide to rule’, ‘Share to integrate’ is now the mantra for success in modern business. This is a welcome change in outlook or conducting business.

But since ages, under the influence of social, biological & economic forces, we have divided ourselves into so many categories/groups and societies that we have forgotten that we all are ‘one & same’ at core level- the human being.

Is the integration and connection possible at our basic level beyond the boundaries of country, religion or government? Is there a silver line in the clouds?

Can technology become the vehicle for this transformation? If it becomes possible some day in future that will be a true e-governance – an ‘effective governance’ not just electronic governance
