India will soon get new currency Symbol similar to the $. Which can easily be typed. It is expected to be released in march of this year.
Very soon, the Indian Rupee too will get a distinct identity — an identification symbolThe Indian government had announced a competition in March last year inviting creative designs from Indian residents to represent the rupee in a simple form.The finance ministry guidelines stated that the symbol should represent the historical and cultural ethos of the country. It should be applicable to a standard keyboard and has to be in the Indian national language script or a visual representation of it. The size of the final design should not be smaller than 232 square cm (36 sq inches).Five designs were short-listed from over 25,000 applications received from across the country. The short-listed candidates made a presentation on the design in December and the winning design is set to create history in March.The five selected designs are simple, easy to write and are designed to appeal to the Indian and international community. Some of these designs reflect the Devanagari script.The finalists are not allowed to reveal the details of their design till the results are declared, expected in March 2010.
Some one took my advice and made this new version of the old song Mile Sur Mera Tumhara. It is being aired on zoom and is 15 minutes long. Watch a smaller version of it below, go here to watch the full version.
The new version is okay but i still prefer the old one. Too many movies stars in the new one and less musicians and athletes etc.
This brings back so many memories, why are no other channels doing this? This is how i knew about all the famous artists and their talents.
Something like this could help younger generation know about, current artists and also bring some patriotic feeling in them.
How cool would it be if someone did a song with all the leading musicians, actors, social workers, politicians, sports stars, industrialist etc of this generation.
I am using a macbook, so i am running mac os x. I want to install windows 7 through bootcamp. I want to get a legit copy but at 6000 Rs, i can’t justify it. So i am not going to use windows 7 unless it comes free with my next computer.
If windows 7 came at 800 Rs i wouldn’t have even given it a thought, i would have went ahead and bought it. I really don’t understand this policy of companies. Can you imagine how many more copies they could sell if it was 800 Rs. They could make this without loosing any money, just give a jewel case and a Dvd with the operating system. No need to include that big packaging that come with the 6000 Rs version. In fact you could sell it as online download for 800 Rs. Then even the cost of burning a Dvd and shipping is saved, which you could pass on to the user.
I know this will never happen, but would be nice if some genius at Microsoft could figure this out.
Trouble is, not all are willing to pay for original software. Win 7, which launched just three months ago, has quickly made its way into the grey market too. The OS is officially sold in India in the price range of Rs 6,000 to Rs 11,000.That’s a price level many still find too high, even though it is strategically lower than Win Vista, which was priced between Rs 7,500 and Rs 22,700. According to reports, 50,000 pirated DVDs of Windows 7 were sold in India right from the day of the official launch on October 22, 2009, generating an unaccounted business of around Rs 50 lakh (Rs 5 million).When contacted, a grey market vendor in New Delhi, Palika Bazaar claimed that he had sold hundreds of copies of Win 7, priced between Rs 800 and Rs 2,000, since its launch.
