The Covid-19 pandemic has brought automation technologies to the forefront and the Intelligent Automation (IA) market in India is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 55 percent, with large enterprises expected to spend nearly $340-$350 million in IA capabilities in 2024, a new report said on Monday.

The overall expenditure is expected to exceed this figure since the market now also includes start-ups and various SMEs. IA combines the capabilities of robotic process automation (RPA) with smart optical character recognition (OCR), conversational AI, and cognitive intelligence.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about unprecedented changes in how organizations function.

“Organisations need to transform themselves into modern workplaces that enable the synergy between their human and machine workforce, with the former assuming responsibilities for strategic and customer-centric initiatives and the latter executing repetitive activities,” the findings showed.

IA is helping businesses to deal with the crisis and find ways to move forward as more organisations shift towards digital. “Organisational priorities have shifted, and more organizations have started adopting digital tools and technologies. This initially helped support basic business operations and is now allowing them to emerge with more robust digitally empowered operating models,” said the report.

In 2020, 94.7 percent of Indian organizations fast-tracked some level of digital transformation programs. Further, 92.3 percent are reinventing their business models. “Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to increase economic growth exponentially over the next few decades. Sixty-four percent of Indian organizations expect to increase demand for cloud computing as a result of Covid-19 alone,” the report mentioned. (IANS/SP)

For the first time in independent India, now a postgraduate course in Hindu Dharma is included at the Benares Hindu University.

By Maria Wirth

Things are finally changing for the better for Hindu Dharma. For too long, many educated Indians, including the first Prime Minister Jawahar Nehru, had accepted the biased view of the British that Hinduism is inferior to the Abrahamic religions, without realizing, that this was a clever strategy to hide the fact that Christianity and Islam are based on a ‘must-belief’ story and Hinduism in contrast, is based on verifiable insights of the Vedas and a genuine enquiry into the truth.

For the first time in independent India, now a postgraduate course in Hindu Dharma is included at the Benares Hindu University. It reminded me that already almost one year ago, a centre to study the practice and philosophy of Nath Panth was established at Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gorakhpur University by Yogi Adityanath, who himself is a Nath Yogi and the Mahant of Gorakhpur Mutt, apart from being the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. A conference was held in March 2021, to which I contributed the following thoughts:

According to the family, the boy went missing in 2012.

He was 18 years old when he went missing from his home in the Mahmadpur village in Farrukhabad district. Brajpal returned to his house on Friday after more than ten years and his overjoyed parents could not believe their eyes. But a rival family informed the police as Brajpal's family had filed a kidnapping case against them. The police soon came and took away Brajpal for questioning.

According to the family, the boy went missing in 2012. His parents looked for him for nearly two years, and later approached the local police. It was when the local police allegedly refused to register their FIR, they went to the court and got an FIR registered at the Merapur police station against their neighbours, accusing them of kidnapping their son, following a land dispute.
