 It the most ambitious project of Srishti and it sets out to provide the different stake holders in a democracy  digital empowerment . (JPC) is a multi-lingual umbrella portal which houses almost 20000 websites of current and ex-MLAs and MPs of the country. The information about them is culled from the World Wide Web.
IT needs to be used for a brand new transparent, neutral and equal opportunity initiative for the elected representative, his people and his constituency, an interactive platform tool between leader and leader, people and leader and people and people. Present day cynicism about the politicians has arisen to a new height and neither there is a media nor any political compulsions which allows any platform for the legislator to put forth his case. The absence of such a media platform not only increases disillusionment but also encourages non performers to be clubbed with the real leaders. Consequently even a well meaning representative will make effort to woo his electorate just before the election. There is no permanent chronicle of the elected representative. There is no place where he can talk of his dream and his effort, where he can proclaim to be one with his people and their aspirations. There is no place where he learns from his peer group, be evaluated for his performance and be inspired to perform. Srishti is enabling democracy to find a new medium called Information Technology as its vehicle for strengthening the democratic values, processes and ideals in a positive way.
