The youngest Indian girl to pursue MSc Sushma Verma

While going through some articles of very popular sites like shoutMeLoud and Labnol which are almost perfect with their SEO implementations, what I find is, that these guys use many internal links or you can say reference of old post in new post which give exposure to their old threads too with the new post. Of course this is very good approach and helps both the user and the author in understanding and clearing the concept respectively.
But why I'm writing about this SEO things, I'm no where related to SEO implementations or anything similar, but I'm, certainly I'm. You won't believe how elated I feel when I find one of the personalities whom I would have ever mentioned in my blog would get noticed by the world again for their work. Sushma Verma a new wonder girl, this was the title of my post which I had written on January 3, 2011, around three years back and now again that girl tend me to make some space for her achievement on my blog.

Google Boy, mini Encyclopedia or call him a genius child Kautilya Pandit

Sometimes I ask myself, where is God and why don't he come up and shows his presence to us and there I come up with a live example which makes me spell bound, I just get stark and numb to the God. Recently I was going through some videos on YouTube and I found a video posted by Zee News titled "Google Boy Kautilya".
I couldn't pass through it without watching the whole and I did what I think god wanted me to do. It was sheer wonder I saw, a magic, a boy of not even 5 years old was answering the questions which I couldn't even at this age. What a guy, simply a magic show was going through.

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.

A play of Identity and authenticity by Hetain Patel

To know about different people, their work, their art, their thinking, is what I like the most, I love learning from people and their experiences. I happen to be someone who loves authenticity and who loves to be genuine with his art. You can't be authentic till you get the real difference of what you aren't, which others are. You happen to be real you, when you fail to imitate others. The more you fail imitating others, the more you realize the authentic you.

It's a game of playing with identities and authenticity's. Host of the game is none other than the artist who plays it the best, Hetain patel. Hetain plays with our preconception of identities and authenticity's, He challenges the common assumptions we people make out of people, by their look, their talk, ascent, they come from, gender, race and class etc.

Hetain who is basically an English, born and raised in Nottingham, England, has his roots in India. Hetain who has done 100s of solo performance at almost…

IMD, LS Rathore and Cyclone Phailin prediction

One of the most questioned department for it's credibility IMD (Indian Meteorological Department) is now on limelight and is getting pat on the back for it's more or less perfect prediction, Thanks to the IMD chief LS Rathore and his team.

L S Rathore not only stood vindicated for his team's prediction to the Cyclone Phailin which predicted almost very much accurate with the rain, winds and location of hit areas, that saved nearly half a million of lives and some infrastructures but he has also ruled out western prediction of terming this cyclone Phailin as Super cyclone of category 5.
L S Rathore stood firm on his teams finding that the phailin would be having winds of around 200-220kmph and  that can't be termed a super cyclone as was termed by US and Britain MET departments. He told media not to create havoc in peoples mind by terming this cyclone a 'Super Cyclone' as was rumored by western media.
Almost accurate prediction well ahead of time helped the loc…

Happy Birthday Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan, there are extremely few people on this earth whose each and everyday would have been counted. Amitabh Bachchan the living legend who turned 71 today, on 11th October 2013 would never have imagined a life, where every other eye on this planet would know him and would love to wish him in person for another 100 years of life. Such a life, which even dream can't give you, is live in front us with @Srbachchan.

A life which started from 11th October 1942, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, had seen innumerable number of ups and downs and that is what we know it for "Life". He too lived many life in his real life as he did in his reel once.
Sometimes you may not win, but that's a fact of life (He joined politics), you may have to go through a phase which you never created (Bofors case).
As a whole, a life, fully cherished, lived and known.

When Sachin announced his retirement from International test match cricket

A compilation of 'A Day' when Sachin announced his retirement from International test match cricket.
10/10/2013 (10th October 2013) When Sachin announced his retirement.

The announcement by master blaster Sachin Tendulkar about his retirement from the cricket test series after playing his 200th match truly broke millions of heart. The god of cricket will be missed by each and every cricket lover for sure. Sachin's retirement will be the end of an era. All the Sachin fans and who know Sachin believe that there can't be any other cricketer like him.

Profile of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar:
For a star-starved nation disgusted with tainted politicians and mediocre sportsmen, Tendulkar's self-discipline, fiercely private family life and controversy-free image make him a role model for the country's burgeoning youth population.  He has remained a conservative family-orientated person despite the glare of a perpetual spotlight and, unlike some of his teammates, he is rarel…

India's number 1 social networking website Jumpbook

It's not even the site has completed it's first quarter of the year of it's launch, and has touched the zenith of success if you consider the home nation India.

Yes, you may not believe this but it's a fact and the credit goes to the Patna brothers Nilay and Ankur Singh for developing the fastest growing social networking site in India and which is now the #1 social networking site.

If we happen to analyze the Internet world, we would find Alexa to be the most accurate in terms of ranking websites. Alexa ranks websites according to the popularity, regularity of visitors and the network with which the site is linked with.

Founder of Data Infosys Ajay Data

When you have dream and the determination to live up with your dream, you will cherish it, no matter what comes your way. Dr Ajay Data who once determined to get into ISP (Internet Service Provider) Providers in India, never gave up and is now a leading name in this field.


Ajay Data who hails from a business background family in Jaipur had very well guessed the future of Internet and ISPs, so to tune with it, he tried contacting 'Satyam' the leading ISP during 1998 for partnership. Ajay didn't find the terms and conditions set by Satyam reasonable enough for partnership and hence he backed out from partnering with them and started his own venture 'Data Infosys' from scratch. Ajay first looked for his own cities Jaipur, Jodhpur, Ganganagar etc. in Rajasthan to start with and then started extending his venture to next level. Ajay's Data Infosys is now the leading name in the ISPs not only in Rajasthan but whole of  India mainly in Northern India.

Tally Solutions by S.S. Goenka and Bharat Goenka

Have you noticed something, that sometimes when we use some very good product we deliberately start assuming that the product would be a western product, developed by some American or German or someone from western world. We generally don't examine or even believe that the product would be an Indigenous one.  According to a research led by Nirmalya Kumar a Professor at London School of Business and his team, India is not only the hub of Software Innovation and Offshore development or back office, but India is very much a global hub of Innovation too. He figured out four kinds of Invisible Innovations, where India is the leading nation. 
So, in our effort to search for the best brands, products and services offered by Indians we found the "Tally Solutions Pvt Ltd" a software company developed by an Indian S.S Goenka. Tally Solutions is a software company which sells products like Tally Software, Tally ERP 9, Tally Developer 9, Tally Server 9 and Shoper 9.  Tally software…

Vaishnav jan to is a Hindu hymn in Gujarati which was composed by the 15th century poet-saint Narsinh Mehta. It was a favorite hymn of Mahatma Gandhi.

Lyrics

Who regards himself lowliest of the low

Gandhi Jayanti and International Day of Non-Violence

The resolution reaffirms "the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence" and the desire "to secure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence".

Inventor of Femto-Photography Ramesh Raskar

On the list of Indians who represented India at some front and made Indians proud by their talent, activities, product or services, I will introduce you the Inventor of Femto-photography, Founder of EyeNetra, co-director of Center for future story telling and the inventor of transient imaging technique Ramesh Raskar.

Ramesh Raskar did his Ph.D at North Carolina and currently he is the associate professor, the head of Lab's camera culture research group at MIT Media Labs. He is currently working on transient imaging technique and he has developed a camera which can look around corners. The technique goes like this:
"It bounces ultra-short bursts of laser light off a rigid surface—the wall opposite an open door, for instance—at several different angles and measures the time it takes the light to return to the camera.".  In order to capture these ultra short bursts of laser light bouncing back from the corner object and off the walls of the open door, the technique needs a …
