Water in moon

Water in moon - Indian moon mission found water in moon.

Chandrayaan 1 the Indian moon mission found water in moon. This will take space exploration into a new level.

Water is locked in minerals in the top layers of the moon's sun-scorched surface.

Is there any chance of life in the moon ?

“The baby has done its job by helping us find water on the moon,” Annadurai, project director of Chandrayaan-1, told IANS in Bangalore

ISRO head quarters is in New B.E.L. Road, Bangalore, India

Why ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) put the name Chandrayaan 1 instead of just Chandrayaan ?
Sure there will be Chandrayaan 2 in the future.

World March in India

World March in World

The World March will begin in New Zealand on October 2, 2009, the anniversary of Gandhi’s birth, declared the “International Day of Nonviolence” by the United Nations. It will conclude in the Andes Mountains (Punta de Vacas, Aconcagua, Argentina) on January 2, 2010. The March will last 90 days, three long months of travel. It will pass through all climates and seasons, from the hot summer of the tropics and the deserts, to the winter of Siberia. The American and Asian stages will be the longest, both almost a month. A permanent base of a hundred people of different nationalities will complete the journey.


Why

Because we can end world hunger with 10% of what is spent on arms. Imagine how life would be if 30-50% of the arms budget went toward improving people’s lives instead of being used for destruction.

Because eliminating wars and violence means leaving human pre-history behind and taking a giant step forward in the evolution of our species.

Because in this aspiration we are accompanied by the strength of the voices of hundreds of prior generations who suffered the consequences of war, and whose echo continues to be heard today in all those places where it continues to leave its sinister trail of dead, disappeared, disabled, refugees and displaced.

When

The World March will begin in New Zealand on October 2, 2009, the anniversary of Gandhi’s birth, declared the “International Day of Non-Violence” by the United Nations. It will conclude in the Andes Mountains (Punta de Vacas, Aconcagua, Argentina) on January 2, 2010.

Confidence Trust Hope


CONFIDENCE


Once all village people decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all people gathered and only one boy came with an umbrella.
That’s Confidence

TRUST

Trust should be like the feeling of a one year old baby when you throw him in the air, he laughs…… because he knows you will catch him.
That’s Trust

HOPE

Every night we go to bed, we have no assurance to get up alive in the next morning but still you have plans for the coming day.
That’s Hope

KEEP CONFIDENCE
TRUST OTHERS
NEVER LOSE HOPE

In both the cars REVA is using a new technology called REVive telematics technology 'a feature unique to REVA that addresses ‘range anxiety’ and will act as an invisible reserve fuel tank. If the customer runs out of charge, he/she can telephone or send a SMS message to REVA 24/7 customer support center and remote charge enables the REVA new models to continue driving within a few minutes'


A lead acid battery variant will be made available for India (REVA NXR), which apart from being cheaper will have a reduced top of 80 kmph and a range of 80 kms.

At present in the Indian market REVA is delivering very badly designed mdoels REVAi Standard, REVAi AC, REVAi Classe to Indian customers. Lot of room to improve the design and finishing of the vehicle. Even your fingers can easily go through the gaps of the vechile.

world capitals of the future

Forbes published a list of 'World capitals of the future'

'The world capitals of tomorrow may largely be not in the Western world' : says Forbes

List of world capitals of the future by Forbes

  1. Bangalore (India)
  2. Mumbai (India)
  3. Hyderabad (India)
  4. Beijing (China)
  5. Shanghai (China)
  6. Dubai (UAE)
  7. Perth (Australia)
  8. Moscow (Russia)
  9. Calgary (Canada)
  10. Dallas (US)
  11. Houston (US)
  12. Sao Paulo (Brazil)


Brazilian President Mr. Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva,
Russian President Mr. Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev,
China President Mr. Hu Jintau,
Indian Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh



Most of the future capitals are from BRIC countries (7 out 12)
BRIC countires are Brazil, Russia, India and China

There are few versions of BRIC countries : BRICK (K for South Korea), BRIMC (M for Mexico) BRICA (GCC Arab countries – Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates) and BRICET (including Eastern Europe and Turkey)

Astrologer comes into my mind after seeing different versions of BRIC
At least one 'BRIC' will comes into reality

'What is BRIC: BRIC or BRICs is an acronym that refers to the fast growing developing economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China. The acronym was first coined and prominently used by Goldman Sachs in 2001.[1][2] Goldman Sachs argued that, since they are developing rapidly, by 2050 the combined economies of the BRICs could eclipse the combined economies of the current richest countries of the world. The four countries, combined, currently account for more than a quarter of the world's land area and more than 40% of the world's population. ' from wiki
