Namaste India

It’s my 201st post on Namaste India and I'm feeling more than happy sharing my experience with my visitors who love to read my blog on a regular basis. It would never have been possible to get 2,00,000+ views for just 200 posts which accounts not more than one and a half standard novel volume. So, I thought to share my experience with you guys about my Blog Indoscopy.
Let’s begin again with the beginning that is the name itself “Namaste India”. Why I chose Namaste India as the title for my Blog Indoscopy.
In this Blog Indoscopy, I cover the stuffs which I come across in my day to-day life. I generally cover the burning topics, go detail into them, and try to present the insight of the story as per my understanding of the topic. I selected the title Namaste India because, Namaste is used as a welcome gesture or a customary greeting by Indians and I use Namaste to welcome all my visitors to my Blog to read about our incredible India!!!.

Meaning of Namaste !
Namaste is a Hindi word which has been taken from Sanskrit language. The word Namaste is a combination of two Sanskrit words namely "Namah" and "te". The first part is Namah, which means bowing or a respectful salutation or admiration or devotion and the other part 'te' which means 'to you, thus making a sense that the person showing the gesture of Namaste or saying the word Namaste is saluting the other person in respect and bowing a little bit in admiration or reverence. This gesture of Namaste is a non-contact form of salutation which is traditional to India and very much prevalent all across the country.

Gesture Namaste !
The gesture of Namaste is performed by slightly bowing head towards the person whom ones saluting and pressing the hands together, palms touched and fingers pointed upwards, in front of the chest. This gesture in sanskrit is known as Añjali Mudrā or Pranamasana.

What Namaste India is all about !
I cover only the topics revolving around India and I always try to give a better view of India, I try to present my India in the best form I can, to the rest of the world. I wish the whole world should know about our rich cultural heritage and the west should come to us and follow our tradition instead of we going there or following their tradition.
Jai Hind!!!

The youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (MP) Lok Sabha 2014 Dr Arvind Kumar Singh

Though I really don't want to talk about politics and politicians on my blog, but as I said in my previous post, there are something which you can ignore but can't deny. Politics is the part and parcel of any nation and without politics, a nation may not exist at all. So, I selected one candidate who claims to be the youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (M.P) Lok Sabha 2014 from Aligarh constituency, as "Today's Indian People" Arvind Kumar Singh.

Arvind Kumar Singh was born on 7th November 1988, in Aligarh.

Singh currently is the Chancellor of Noida International University (NIU) and with this post in 2010, Singh became the world's youngest chancellor. Arvind had his schooling in India, moved to England (University of Leeds) for his masters degree in International business. He has been awarded with the Doctorate in Management for his work on “How personal evolution and development of leaders impact growth and success of their organizations.”

Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,

Over thy branches and lordly streams,

Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham born 1962 is a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India.
Update: Bollywood Hindi Film "Pad Man" starred by Akshay Kumar is inspired by the true story of this man Arunachalam Muruganantham.

He is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. He invented a set of machines which manufacture sanitary pads for women at a lower price and the best part is that he is employing women to make these pads, thus creating job opportunities for them. His mini-machines, which can manufacture sanitary pads for less than a third of the cost of commercial pads, have been installed in 23 of the 29 states of India. He is currently planning to expand the production of these machines to 106 nations. In 2014, TIME magazine placed him in its list of 100 Most Influential People in the World.
