Why you shouldn’t believe in Modi’s survey results

Demonetization of higher value notes has caused havoc in India. Modi’s government promised that the situation will ease off in 50 days time. People are looking forward eagerly to get back to their normal life. In between, Modi wanted to know what people feel about the action taken on black money. To get feedback about the new move, he used Narendra Modi app to gather information . The app needs personal data including your voter ID (complete information about the app is discussed here). The app gathered feedback on the new move. Around 5 lakh people have responded to the survey within 24 hours. The results were published by Shri.Narendra Modi via different social media network. Details about the survey are given here.


But the results shared cannot be generalized to the population. Why it cannot be generalized?. Because it doesn’t follow any statistical principles. Let’s get ahead with one question and some discussion on the survey results. Then you will find, why the survey results are not right.

  1. Does the survey include everyone who represents India? Like rural, urban, literate, illiterate, different geographic location, income based classification, and other parameters. The sample has to be drawn in such a manner that the sample represents the entire population not only a particular set of people.
  2. 5 lakhs out of 1.25 billion is just 0.04 percent of the entire population. 0.04 percent of the population, who don’t really represent all the sectors of India can’t give a bigger picture.
  3. Total smartphone users in India is 292 million people. Only 1.7 percent, out of it have responded to the survey. Only people, who are affordable to avail internet services has responded to the survey.

People who are standing in the queue will never find time to respond to the survey. Hence the results can’t be generalized to the entire population. Results published is a summation of opinions of hardcore loyal fans of Modi government.


Facebook – Actors – Society

Happy May day to everyone. Today I posted a status in the Facebook which caused a stir in just five hours. The status was not meant to hurt anyone feelings, yet to make clear that actors are not demigods and they don’t contribute to you and your life. Here is the Facebook status.

In conversation with Mr.Muralitharan

 Mr. Muralitharan is my student who worked for Photon Infotech (as Business Development Executive) for a year and three months and he is going to join 4i apps soon as Pre Sales Executive. This guy normally questions me in the class and ask doubts for which I was not able to reply most of the times. With his own effort and hard work he got placed in Photon Infotech. He came back to college today to get his degree certificate.

Inbetween, today we had a small conversation on what students should to gain and understand to get into the right career. Murali himself has transformed into a seasoned professional. I think the corporate world certainly does better than the academics or may be we can call that as maturity also. He wanted to share few things to the students who are going to complete their studies, I’m putting it here for everyone to read. Continue reading

Anger – Making sense

Ten months ago, two people create an awareness on why anger is required for people. One is Kailash Satyarthi and another person is Barack Obama. Anger is evil for your health, please control your anger and so on are the advises given by your elders and care takers. Kailash Satyarthi, child right activist who has rescued more than 85,000 kids delivered a speech at TED conference and said the purpose of anger. Barack obama at White House Correspondence had an anger translator to create an awareness among everyone about “Why we need to worry about Climate Change”.

2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Notional Suppression

Everyone has their own preconceived notion in their mind about anything or on anyone. When they impose upon these preconceived notions on anyone else then it becomes “notional suppression”. Not all the notions are wrong, when those notions are pulling down a person mentally and that should be noted and rectified.

Think about a day when your father told that you are not good, if he continues to say till your life without noticing how you grew stronger and bigger and that will ruin your entire life, you will start believing that you are not good after sometime. Continue reading

TEDxSonaCollege 2015 – Scintillating Experience

Organizing a TEDx event is just like climbing mount Everest without oxygen mask. One has to plan at least three to four months to organize an ordinary TEDx event. If you need to bring out an extra ordinary TEDx event, you need at least one year to accomplish it.

TEDxSonaCollege 2015 – the idea kick started in the month of April when Mr.Ali Ibrahim approached me to organize it. I told him, ” Yes, we can go ahead, with a condition applied”. He asked me what is the condition. I replied him that, “TEDxSonaCollege 2012 and TEDxSonaCollege 2013 happened with a support from our college, the college provided us Rs.40000 and Rs.25000 respectively. This year we will work on a self-sustaining mode, where we will not get money from the college but we will get the venue support”. When I said this condition, I felt this guy will not turn up again to organize one such event.

Tips for blog writing

Blogging is a hobby for many and there are few people who take it up seriously as a business and do it. Few even rely for their daily bread by blogging day and night. I maintain this blog for around three years and out my experience I would like to share few tips on blogging. If your intention is to improve the statistics page of your blog then I hope the tips I share will help you. 

Tip 1 # Write more: I have seen my statistics drop down when I don’t write regularly. When I started to read how the search engine works, I found it depends on keywords, links in the website and freshness of the content. Keywords and links do have a major role. Let’s talk about it later on. Google crawlers normally finds the webpage that has a fresh content, hence write more to get more views. Continue reading

Resolution revisited

Feeling great about the year 2015. First time in my life I have taken a list of resolution to accomplish some goals. I think, it’s time to revisit what has happened to those resolutions so far. Taking resolution is easy and achieving the set targets everyday is a daunting task. So, can one think of taking a resolution in their life?? Will answer this question in the last paragraph, before that we will take a look at what happened to my resolution. The list of resolution with their accomplishment in approximate percentage level is given for your

Resolution 1# Wake up by 5 am everyday – I followed it up strictly during the month of January and failed to accomplish during February and March. This month ( April ), I’m waking up by 5 am to go for a job to accomplish resolution number 3.

Resolution 2# Read at least 50 pages of new information ( includes books, newspaper, magazines and so on) – I feel I haven’t done really good here. I was able to read 4 to 5 pages a day but not 50 pages. May be during the next year I will have to set the target in a different way. Continue reading
