India loses maximum lives to terror except Iraq

via -
Times of India Newspaper (LINK)

Excerpt -

The US and UK may like to believe that they are leading the war on terror globally, but the country that has had to face the worst of terrorist attacks on its own soil, barring war-torn Iraq, is India.

Change is Universal - India

After a bit of searching, i found the excellent documentary which BBC did this year about India hosted by Sanjeev Bhaskar. And i must say, its one of best i have seen, potraying india in all forms and not just slums, snake charmers :) etc... which is still very much part of india too but its changing and as a country, we have lot more to offer in all aspects of life. I think, Sanjeev gives a very insightful view of the society which we have now, as i always say, its a huge country with lots of different cultures and its hard to put everything in one hour episode... but its good to see all ascepts of India or any country for that matter. Can't put all in here, so you gotta watch it :))

If you have a hour to spare and want to know more, have a look.. you would def. learn something :) .. And as he says in the beginning "its gott to be different.. different .." and he does that pretty well. Ah and if you don't know who Sanjeev is.. there is always Wikipedia.. LINK.

Hope you like it too and i would love to hear your viewpoint about it.

And its excellent quality video.. so enjoy.

PS: Works better in Firefox and its scaled better to fit. IE is not letting the video scale to fit window.

We Feel Fine

Once more, thru' TED talk by Jonathan Harris and an interesting sight into the human feeling through blogs and wide spread use of internet. Very cool visualizations of "human feeling" and revealing web secrets and his latest work "Universe" - which presents current events as constellations of words -- a tag cloud of our collective consciousness.

Knowledge Source - TED

Have been busy lately with work, watched yesterday some new talks at Africa 2007 and others given at TED and i am always amazed by the wealth of knowledge out there, which we don't know of.
Here are some interesting ones:
George Ayittey: Cheetahs vs. Hippos for Africa's future

William Kamkwamba: How I built my family a windmill

Allison Hunt: How I got my new hip
