Preview of my book ‘Seeing Opportunities Through Your Mind’

Some appreciations and comments

I was delighted to go through your attempt at analysing me in your note ‘Vittalism -An analysis’ I thank you for all nice things you have said about me, but the real problem is how to bring in action orientation in the entire Department of Electronics, so that even if I am transferred, the Department would continue to be action minded. I will keep on trying new technologies to achieve this goal.

I was delighted to go through your article on personnel management. You should try to get this published in any of the magazines which have management columns….

The Personnel Division of the Department of Electronics is streamlining it’s working much to the satisfaction of its employees,……………the Department terms this approach as a SMART approach. The acronym SMART stands for Simplify, Methodical, Adapt to
Requirements, Review, Think. Other Ministries and Departments could well get SMART and try the same recipe.

I have seen the article you have sent me, and also your book on Human Resource Management, which you had sent earlier. I am glad that you continue to put your thoughts down on paper, which is far more than what I manage to do.

I was very happy to get your letter., but was both surprised and distressed to find that you have now moved to Mumbai. I will miss your advice and assistance here. I have read the reprint of your article ‘Management in Government’ with much interest. As expected, it is very good article. I will give it some circulation here among scientific departments.

Shri C.V. subramaniam’s association with SAC-PM has been of tremendous help to us and he has fully justified his selection for the assignment given to him. During the period he worked with us he has devoted himself totally to the work of SAC-PM and without his help, it would have been difficult for us to have achieved all that we could. The wide experience of Shri Subramaniam and his excellent capabilities in handling both administrative and scientific matters dealt with by SAC-PM have proved to be a great asset to our work. On behalf of Prof. C.N.R. Rao and other members, I would like to place on record the excellent work carried out by Shri Subramaniam.

Dr. P.J. Lavakare, Secretary to Science Advisory Council to Prime Minister and Advisor, Department of Science & Technology, GOI
