HYDERABAD: “We get a lot of blank calls and prank calls on our line,” said commissioner of police when questioned by the inefficiency of te, AK Khan, about the 100 police helpline, while interacting with youngsters at a youth convention.
He then added, “We are not satisfied about how the control room functions and we are refurbishing the line. We are also working on the quality of response and many small things. And I guess in three months, i.e. before the start of the next financial year, we will have it all set up.”
The three-day youth convention, Shraddha was organised by Ramakrishna Math, to celebrate Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary, according to the English calendar. Answering more queries, the commissioner shared his spiritual ideas on excessive competition and increase in unethical ways among people. He said, “Competition has become severe these day. But, people should not forget their ethics.” He added, “Like I believe, bhayam, bhakti and prema are three essential factors for a human being, these days, bhakti and prema have become rare commodities.”
He opines, “There are many unselfish ways to reach to your goal. But, people don’t have the patience to practice it. And this is where we come into picture,” he laughs.
One of the participants at the convention, Santosh Kumar said, “When one meets the law-keepers of the city, we should question them, and help in making things better.” Agreeing with him was another student, Praveen Murthy, “I would want to serve the country similarly. But, what effective and novel measures should be our focus.”
Swami Bodhamayananda, director, Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence said, “The youngsters have to take responsibility and that can happen when they spend minimal time with the three M’s, mobiles, motorbikes and multiplexes.” Also present were Pramod Kumar, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Prof G Narsaiah and Atmakuri Ramam of the Cognizant Technology Solutions.
