Wish you all a Happy Dasara

Dasara is celebrated in India and many other countries with great pomp and splendor.
Dasara concludes with Navarathri, the holy day when the good wins over evil.
Dasara in sanskrit means the "remover of bad fate".
There are different forms of celebration depending on the place and golu or the doll festival is very popular in southern part of India.
The vastness and number of dolls displayed depends on the size of ones wallet;-)

Wish you all a Happy Dasara! :)

A beautiful Airtel ad that speaks lot with few words.

Very short yet powerful and creative ad with an awesome concept.

A quite sensible ad after a long time that shows social obligation is also a vital factor in product promotions.

Music created by none other than the Oscar winning music wizard A.R.Rahman.

Have a look at this amazing ad.....

The Dalai Lama

Why is the big hue and cry in China when Dalai Lama enters Arunachal Pradesh?

Arunachal Pradesh is and always an integral part of India and Dharamsala in Himachal will continue to be a Buddhist center.

Dalai Lama being such a great Messenger Of Peace is always welcome to Arunachal.

If the chinese premiers are allowed and invited over the years to visit India why not a Spiritual Guru to his ‘own place'?

A Guru who preaches World Peace and moreover who live and consider India his home for the last few decades after his exile in 1959 by the chinese from Tibet should never be restricted anywhere irrespective of nations.

It is not china but India will decide who all are allowed to enter this nation. Deployment of Military by china across the Sino-Indian border area reflects the arrogance and attitude the autocratic rulers of china posses.

It would be better if china remembers that muscle flexing is not the order of the day and neither India the same as it was in 1962…................

India being a democratic, socialist, secular sovereign nation, the people of India is free to follow any religion and practice per their wish and will. And hence being free thinkers, India may invite Monks, Priests, Mullahs and Pastors from all over the world to Indian soil and no nation, however influential or arrogant, has the right to question the secularist framework of this country.

Jai Hind!

Dr. Norman Borlaug

The demise of this great American Agronomist, humanitarian and Father of Green Revolution Dr. Norman Borlaug is loss not just for the Agricultural fraternity but for the entire humanity.

A legend who helped billions from starvation in the mid 20th century has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 in line with helping to boost food supply world over and thereby restoring peace in many volatile states

Many countries adopted his technique; the high-yielding varieties to overcome the food scarcity world over.

India particularly, with more million mouths to feed, had no second thoughts while adopting his system that saved many from starving in those days.

India conferred him with the second highest civilian honor the Padma Vibhushan in 2006

Borlaug's discoveries have been estimated to have saved over 245 million lives worldwide.

May your soul rest in peace Sir

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
