In Search of Leaders

I have been less frequent in blogging for the past one month as I have been very busy in extracting voter records from the lists published in pdf form by the Election Commission. You can see the results of my work at

There are thousands of errors (in about 1,20,000 records – making it a small % or errors) in the data on the site, which I am progressively correcting. There are many lessons I have learnt which I shall share with you later. I have proto-typed several ideas to improve the voter list, reduce confusion, and increase voter participation. 

In Ashwin Mahesh, we have a highly qualified, experienced and pragmatic person contesting for the Graduate Constituency at Bangalore. Read what Dr. Balu says about him and assures that a few good men can make a difference. 

I shall be more regular with blogs starting next week. 

I am extremely happy about the appointment of Dr. Balu to the prestigious Frank H T Rhodes Visiting Professorship of Cornell University.  This appointment made for excellence of achievement is for 3 years.

We are proud of you Dr. Balu!
