SMS the FIR

India is really taking this SMS thing  very far.  Now  police in this  north Indian state is allowing  citizens to file their FIR (first  information report -  process to initiate  legal  process  against somebody) .

This country is definitely is stretching in different directions. On one hand you cannot get the FIR done by normal procedure and on the other hand they are allowing cutting edge interface to automate this process.  I hope they shake the infamous bureaucracy in the process.

Another interesting news was the reason why I couldn't wish everybody in India by calling them. It seems most of the cellphones were out of order as record number of SMS messages (~ 10 million) crashed the VSNL network !

Update:

This just reiterates the old line of thinking that India is  one heck of a contradiction. Check this to get a sense of that.
