Top Indian Celebrities on Twitter with Fake Followers

T

When celebrities started using Twitter (which was one of its scale strategies btw both in India and US), I saw the whole nation joining Twitter. I would’ve believed all that celebrity crush, but apparently, it looks like at least some of the celebrities are faking it by buying ghost accounts on Twitter – a lame strategy that Twitter is yet to bust. (Facebook had busted pages that had fake...

The Mahatma Gandhi, They Don’t Teach Us at School About

T

When we think about Mahatma Gandhi, what comes to our mind is an iconic figure. An image that the world has seen, many times over. That of a smiling, saint like figure with virtues and wisdom in every word spoken. Mahatma is truly an inspiration to a generation, the world over. In this article, I’d like to bring to focus, some topics that came to my attention, on the life of Gandhi, the...

What Salman Khan don’t want you to blog about

W

Here’s the thing. Blogger writes about Salman Khan. Salman Khan calls the blogger, gets the article removed. Blogger offers apology – says he’s been through excruciating time and is taking a break from blogging until he’s in the right frame of mind. First when I heard this story, I thought it’s a joke. It wasn’t. Soumyadipta Banerjee, a blogger in India writes a...

Why I support Narendra Modi and why we should

W

I have been getting more and more worried over the last year or so at the direction (or lack of it) in which our country is headed. It is like a runaway plane falling from the skies and we are plummeting past one alarming indicator after another– inflation, economic slowdown, falling rupee, complete break-down of law and order, ever emboldened Naxalites, total internalization of corruption, an...

So, this app does a real time mapping of all the Indian Railway Trains that are running at the moment over Google maps, basically giving you a live visual update of which train is...

How I imagine Times of India would counter The Hindu “Get Ahead of Times” Ad

H

This one was hilarious. Aggressively hilarious. The Hindu got it right this time targeting the youth with a pointy edge. But I thought it still had that little dumb factor with it. Why? The “actors” weren’t that convincing. I could spot one of them who was already on a show on Fox Traveller – Life Mein Ek Bar. However, to imagine how Times of India would take it is even more hilarious. If they...

Is Mahabharat just mythology or for real?

I

Is the Mahabharath and Ramayan mere mythological stories or could they have been for real? If real the Mahabharatha dates backs up to 1200 BC, giving clues that ancient Indian civilization is one of it not the earliest. I’m no expert on this but the following Discovery channel documentary on the studies by Doctor Rao done on Dwaraka, the ancient city mentioned in Mahabharata, gives integral clues...
