About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The Idea of Opinion de India is to use mobile telephony in creating awareness and public opinion against corruption in India. Recently, India witnessed anti-graft (anti-corruption) demonstration by Anna Hazare, where the common man to have struck a cord with this movement. Finally, the government had to relent and get the debated clauses for the Law-making debate in the India Parliament. Indian society is heavily entrenched in the throes of rampant corruption from the lowest level to the highest in our society. Thus, Mobile medium is thought to an appropriate medium to reach the highest and the lowest in Indian Society and create a case against corruption.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

This project aims at using the Mobile telephony as the medium for the cause – i.e Anti-Corruption. Idea is to use form a public opinion through constant public campaign, create media events, organize public shows/ demonstrations and convince people to relinquish the corrupt practices.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Idea is to use form a public opinion through constant public campaign, create media events, organize public shows/ demonstrations and convince people to relinquish the corrupt practices. The second part of the strategy is to use the mobile as a device to catch the erring official, citizens (record their videos and record their voices) and use these to publically sham these individuals (no Legal purpose). Idea will to bring Public Humiliation and not legal charges. The aim of the campaign will be to glorify the Indian masses with integrity and honest living and sham the dishonest. With the popular support and sentiments that India has witnessed in the recent past, it’s expected that many celebrities (Actors, Sports personalities etc.) will join this campaign. The selective dissemenation of the corruption messages could be geographical location basis - which means the members can organise the demonstration (all Gandhian - Non-violent protests) against the erring government official/ citizen locally. This will put pressure on the officials in their immediate environment and help correct their behaiour - for they risk fall in the social grace with neighbours, friends and relatives.
