Any solutions to revolutionise the product distribution system in India?
Yes JKP, well said... Some time back, there was a thought by the Indian government to enhance postal system to a miniature banking system as well... But there was strong refusal from State Bank of India on this plan... It is because it would loose its present stature as India's most prominent bank.... Such Individual preferences by many prominent forces in the market would prevent such a revolutionary move... Could you guys suggest better insights on improving this...

Any solutions to revolutionise the product distribution system in India?
Yes Varsha Suresh, I totally agree to what you said... If Walmart wants to be price leaders in India, they have no other choice than cutting the supply chain cost, which one of the most challenging task they are going to face in Indian market. Personally, awaiting giants like walmart and tesco to launch in India and see their innovative moves. Varsha, any Idea about how they have worked out in the Supply chain & distribution in a large country like China?

Good one DH ! The first point, you are very much right... Most banks in India are targeting this potentiality of postal system in the country. India with a huge untapped rural market is a tough place to penetrate into. And the only available, well set distribution channel is Postal System. And Banks have already started working on this idea to spread their presence over this space. The second point looks interesting and a bit fancy too :P Excellent thought DH.. ! Keep in touch :)

Should you privatise Indian Railways??
Yes, I totally agree... Another area would be the revenue that government is able to generate from the Railway ministry is quite high. If privatised, the revenues from tax might not meet the government fund requirements.

how far are social networking sites usefull ?
I can put a ding in the universe with Facebook, Youtube or twitter... I can also spoil a girls or boys image in few seconds... ;) ...Well, SNSs are perfectly working double edged swords... Now how do you get people use only the positive side of SNS?? Tough question... It could be just those rules which would make people think twice before they do something fancy in their SNSs...Put huge fine / penalties for such actions...It is of no use preaching whether its a small kid or 70 + aged man... Its a mad mad world... Only way out is to scare them and prevent them from even thinking of misusing these sites... ;) Any more views over this?? Most welcome :)
