Thank you very much for reply response of Mr. Greg.
APNIC is presently doing excellent job and the credit goes to past & present EC
Members and APNIC Secretariat. I think, APNIC has done a lot on extending services on
general awareness of Internet and Internet Governance. I intend to contribute the
Community in my following ways:-
1) IPv6 Deployment Management---Require active promotion, education, outreach &
support. This has been talked a lot in Asian economies but implementation percentage is
quite low. This was also highlighted in Members Survey Report-2011.
2) Training---Require active strategy for multi-language, localized training with
Both the above point requires to be addressed differently at Asian economies after
considering the local, geographical, technical and regional issues. I belong to technical
and education domain and intend to volunteer my experience & services in developing
strategies and monitoring effective & speedy implementation of above.
I am comparative new to APNIC family, however keen observer of its complete functioning. I
am also admirer of APNIC, which is delivering so much value to Community and working with
Global Community with openness and co-operation. I have discussed my above views with
various APNIC members and ISPs of India and they have given me full individual support,
however I will like to clarify that I am not the official declared nominee of ISPAI and
If you think, I can contribute to APNIC community, then kindly support me.

Perhaps you can outline where you feel the previous & current EC's has been
lacking in aiding the growth of India's emerging internet economy. Do you feel India
(and other Asian economies) has had unfair access to resources, promotion & training
through APNIC due to not having representation on the EC?
Could you identify these specific upcoming 'significant issues' you feel need to
be addressed by the EC & you view on how they would best be resolved?
Also if you could highlight what other initiatives you wish to promote within the EC for
the betterment of the community as a whole?
I'm sure the community would be appreciative of hearing your views and as one of
Australasia's largest corporate voters, I really wouldn't mind hearing them aired
for the rest of the NZ/AUS community so they can support (or not) your election to the

I thank Skeeve and humbly accept & respect his frank individual opinion.
India is emerging as growing market and same is case with other countries of South Asia
and South East Asia. There are several significance issues of this area which needs
attention and importance at apex body level of APNIC. I do not have any doubt in saying
that today developing economies like India and other South Asian Countries need full
support on technologies and products from big brothers - China, Japan, Korea, Australia
& New Zealand. I strongly hope & wish that I will be able to facilitate a bridge
from this unrepresented region at APNIC EC.
APNIC is an open, membership-based, not-for-profit, one of five Regional Internet
Registries (RIRs) charged with ensuring the fair distribution and responsible management
to promote the growth of the Internet. The fair distribution and representation of all
regions in APNIC EC will help achieving this objective under mutual co-operation
I am from Internet industry from a long time and was instrumental in various network
projects and worked at ground level. I have also been working actively on policy related
matters at National level. I am unanimous nominee for APNIC EC from my country apex body
ISP Association of India and NIXI.
I thank to all who agree with my above opinion and given support and apologize to members,
who got annoyed with my mail thread. I volunteer myself with honesty, sincerity, humility
& dedication and hope that with your support, I can bring the views of our region for
prospective growth of Internet for all regions.

Hey there all,
I have spoken to Mr. Sodhi off-list and asked him a couple of things and told him a few
others, and it seems as though he has never attended an APNIC meeting.
Now while this is not a requirement, it certainly speaks to anyones suitability for a
position on the EC.
I am concerned by his comments on his election profile @
where his motivation is to
'represent India in the APNIC Executive Council'.
Unfortunately that is not what serving on the EC is all about. It is about serving all
50+ economies in the region and not just representing the interests of your home economy.
Indeed if you home economy goes against the overall community, then you should be looking
out for everyone - not your home country.
This goes for everyone, not Mr. Sodhi. It also goes for the other candidates: Prof Yan
(China), Mr Akinori (Japan) and Mr Cheng (Hong Kong) - all three who I know value the
overall community above their own home country interests.
Serving on the EC is something someone should aspire to after a reasonable number of years
serving and participating in the APNIC community in different capacities including Policy,
partaking in SIGs, getting to know people - basically contributing to the APNIC community
in some way.
I am not singling out Mr. Sodhi. I would say the same about a candidate from Australia,
NZ or any other country in our region who has not 'done their time' in service to
A note to APNIC members on this list - and there are MANY of them. PLEASE vote. You are
able to vote online @ https://myapnic.net
but you will need your digital certificate (easy
to request). Online voting is available for the next couple of days. If you do not know
who to vote for, feel free to assign me as your proxy. I am headed off to India in the
morning for the conference.
