  4. I had opportunity to work with his elder brother Sh S Vijay Kumar in Shimla Himachal Pradesh because his cadre was of HP. I along with him worked on many projects in egov sector but more prominent being Land records computerisation which under his guidance had become very successful project in HP and working very we since 2000 onward.
    I used to.admire his ste of working sombre and calm.nature and even hevwas diagnosed with some decease which did not allow him.to sit on office chair he got laid one hard bed in his retiring room where he used to.lay down and conduct meetings in projects as he was Secratary Gov Reforms.
    Land records project which was given name Himbhoomi by me is around 600 years plus system which was started by Todar Mal a minister under King Akbar. Very complicated and fool proof system which no have dared to change except replacing Persian words with hindi words even still Persian words find their place in system running so far.
    S Vijay Kumar quick decision making in a logical manner that I used to wait for opportunity to meet him and learn.
    He left Himachal Pradesh for central.deputatuon but kept interaction with me on the projects. Returned back to.HP after few years but returned soon to Delhi and retired as Secratary Rural Development after that I lost contact with him and now he had retired
    But I hope he is well and healthy and making use of his abilities for some good cause.
    I have also became fan of our foreign minister who is equally intelligent, calm.and means business. May God keep their family hale healthy.
    Mukesh Kumar Ralli
