Driver and cheran stated to talk as time went the conversation was turning like a fight. The reason is, cab driver’s wife is also willing to vi…
ConjunctivitisWhat is conjunctivitis?
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the thin, clear membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the white of the eye and the inside surface of the eyelids. Conjunctivitis, commonly known as “pink eye,” is most often caused by a virus but also can be caused by bacterial infection, allergies (e.g., cosmetics, pollen) and chemical irritation.
How is it spread?
Anyone can get conjunctivitis. It can spread fairly easily from person to person, especially in dormitories, schools or other places where large numbers of persons congregate. People commonly get conjunctivitis by coming into contact with the tears or other eye discharges of an infected person, and then touching their own eyes. Hands, towels and washcloths can spread conjunctivitis. Symptoms normally appear a few days after contact with an infected person or an object contaminated with the virus (such as a towel).
Individuals with conjunctivitis may be contagious as long as symptoms persist or the eye ap…
Suvendu Roy of Titan Industries, who shares his inspirational encounter with a rickshaw driver in Mumbai:
One Sunday, my wife, kid, and I had to travel to Andheri from Bandra.
When I waved at a passing auto rickshaw, little did I expect that this ride would be any different...
As we set off, my eyes fell on a few magazines (kept in an aircraft style pouch) behind the driver's back rest.
I looked in front and there was a small TV. The driver had put on the Doordarshan channel.
My wife and I looked at each other with disbelief and amusement. In front of me was a small first-aid box with cotton, dettol and some medicines.
This was enough for me to realize that I was in a special vehicle.
Then I looked round again, and discovered more - there was a radio, fire extinguisher, wall clock, calendar, and pictures and symbols of all faiths
- from Islam and Christianity to Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism.
There were also pictures of the hero…
Meet 18-year-old Diwakar Vaish. This youngster apart from others his age is his undeniable talent in the still-nascent field of robotics in India. He has created four humanoid robots (designed, created and programmed by him) that possess much of the physical functionality a human body does, and one -- Robot Isotope -- that can even do the Bhangra. An admitted techno-freak, Diwakar spent much of his school years participating in tech competitions, and winning most. But what gave him the boost he needed was winning at Quanta, an international competition for robotics held in Lucknow in 2009, for which he created a race boat that beat out competition from 40 countries.
Less than a year since and Diwakar is all set to storm the FIRA (Federation of International Robosoccer Association) World Cup in Bangalore this September with three of his robots that have been designed to perform as defender, goalkeeper and attacker.
Here we speak to the young talent about his creations, how he got start…
Living in the worlds richest country inevitably puts a smile on your face! This small landlocked European country has an army of 800 people (yes, 800). They don’t have a navy nor an air force but together with Belgium they can afford to own 1 military cargo plane. Beat that US! :twisted:
According to the Guinness Book of World Records Luxembourg holds the world record as the country that consumes most alcohol in the world per citizen. 9. Guatemala – 7,6 points
This Central American country borders with Mexico in the north and is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. This location makes it a very difficult country to stay happy in – Guatemala is frequently ravished by hurricanes and earthquakes that often kill thousands of people. Main exports of Guatemala include coffee, sugar and bananas. The latter is probably why they are so happy – have you ever seen someone that can stay sad while eating a banana? :lol: 56% of all Guatemalans live in …
It is said good things come in small packages. There are over 1000 startup companies in Bangalore alone. There are several others across India. If their number is an eyebrow raiser, the technologies they work on are a mindblower.

You will find several of these 'cool startups' at the siliconindia Startup City on May 29 & 30, 2010 at Nimhans Convention Center, Bangalore. You can meet star engineers from these companies and see how they built cutting edge products.
Tally CEO Bharat Goenka will walk you through the journey of the birth of Tally Solutions and the revolution they have created in the Indian market. You will learn from him how this 'Made in India' product is foraying into global markets and challenges thereof.

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.
If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign
The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name "ICE" ( In Case Of Emergency).
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know whi…
