what as an indian on egypt?

egypt one of the oldest cultural heritage and a country with vivid and liberal media and citizen. majority of which is covered by sunni muslim. 
now on hosni mubarak, he was ruling the country for more than 30 years. its now seems to be a tyrant-ship, govt ruling for 3 decades is obvious to make the citizen obsess with it.
now as the nation needs the democracy to prevail, it seems to be a good step. statesman who didn't bring transformation what he wanted in 3 decades is presumably don'r seem to transform everything within few more days of his administration. 
so i think it to be a good step by the citizen of egypt, and i welcome the step of hosni mubarak for stepping down from the post.
now egypt moving towards democratization really is a good sign to the country.

AHMEDABAD: This unique student-teacher relationship can itself be the subject of a doctoral thesis! A Muslim assistant commissioner of commercial tax,Intaj Malek,is PhD guide to two Jain munis Chintan Muni and Niranjan Muni helping them understand Jainism in a new perspective.

Unlike other doctoral guides who keep their students on their toes,Malek follows his on-the-move students around the country,meeting them at upashrayas to follow up on the progress.He also carries reference books and laptops for his students.

Chintan Muni,52,is writing his thesis on Austerities in Jainism and other religions a comparative study.Niranjan Muni,45,on the other hand,is studying Bhavna Shata Treatise on 12 reflections of Jainism by Shatavdhani Ratnachandraji Maharaj.

The student-guide relationship happened by accident.The Jain munis of Sthanakvasi Jain Ajramar Sampraday were finding it diffi…

Suman Sharma, the first civilian woman to fly the F-16IN Super-Viper also became the first woman in the world to fly the MiG-35, just minutes after Rakesh Sharma flew the F-18 Super Hornet on 13th feb 2009 at the Yelahanka air base as part of Aero India 2009.

MiG Aircrafts head Mikhail Globenko: "She is the first woman to fly on the MiG-35. Two reasons convinced us to fly her -- this aircraft is extremely safe and MiG pilots are remarkable. We knew she would be in a safe aircraft and in safe hands. We showed that in 2007 display too. And then we found she was brave, physically fit and ready to take the flight. We have in fact invited her for the Moscow air show in August 2009."

Suman's flight comes in the context of Russian air force not having women fighter pilots at the moment and Russian women not having flown the aircraft. Interestingly, the flight happened on Friday the 13th. "It is a coincidence that we flew her on a military aircraft when we don't have w…

where do i stand?

its six month from now, i incidentally land up to a site named ted.com. where i found some of the most famous or we can call the real heroes of earth giving their thoughts in simple words and projections.
i thought to search for indians and i got amazed to see the list of indians who are standing tall with the personalities like bill gates. there i found, sekhar kapoor, anil k gupta, pranav mistry and many many more. while watching the video presentation of pranav mistry, it was my first ever affair to live a part of life with the advanced world. i just not able to let my eyes believe what i was watching? it was "SIXTH SENSE" MIRACULOUS, MARVELLOUS, AWESOME I say. each and every bit of that presentation was new to me. i had never ever even imagined those kind of inventions, being possible. pranav was so comfortable with taking the real life into digitized form, that i just let my eyes blink less. i kept staring and then i recollected myself in an hour or so.
