India lost all the matches in hockey and remained in the last position .
Our Government ,on Friday , has relaxed the norms for FDI in retail and other sectors . Mr. Anand Sharma, Minister for Commerce , Industry and Textile , GOI , has declared that there will be 51% FDI in multi-brand retail sector . The multinational companies like Walmart and Tesco will be allowed to open stores in Indian cities having population more than 10 lac . There are 51 such cities all over India .
The move was welcomed by the Industries and Business Association .
Reactions from different States are as follows :
Haryana : Welcomed saying that the farmers will get the right price and the consumers will be benefited.
Delhi : Welcomed saying that it will generate employment .
Rajasthan : Welcomed saying that it will be beneficial for agricultural sector .
Maharastra : Welcomed saying that consumers will get better service and the goods will be available at ease .
Assam , Andhra Pradesh , Utteranchal , Manipur and Jammu & Kashmir : Welcomed
Odisha : Opposed the move saying that it is anti national .
West Bengal : Opposed and requested the Government to withdraw it at once .
Uttar Pradesh , Bihar , Madhya Pradesh : Opposed strongly .
Punjab , Jhadkhand and Karnatak : Declined to comment .
Along with this there are some relaxation for FDI in Civil Aviation and Broadcasting sectors also.
During the last few days some social sites were blocked and there was a block on mass SMS .
According to a report given by an International Organization “ Freedom House “ , India was ranked 14 among 37 countries in the field of Internet freedom.
Comparing our country with China ( ranked 34 ) , though we are three decades back in economy , we have still more freedom of speech and internet freedom than China .
While countries like USA , UK , Germany and Australia are among the top of the list , countries like Mexico , Kenya and Nigeria remain below us .
This modern theory of freedom was started in Europe .
The most controversial subject in social media censorship is the censorship of terrorism and pornography .
At the first attempt , some sites having child pornography were censored .
Sites having relation with terrorism and having illegal contents are in the process of censorship .It is intended to check violence.
If one will review the various chats ,emails ,blogs and discussions in forums , worldwide , It may appear that there must be an online restriction for Indians also.
It may be legal , but not realistic or possible .. The Supreme Court also says that there should not be any restriction on the criticism about a wrong-doing of Government .
We should not blame the social media for every problem .
The two brothers , Shravan and Sanjay kumar , are studying in Vael's Billabong High International School , Chennai . They are 12 and 10 years old respectively . The two brothers have very keen interest in technology .
Once , their father , Surendra Kumar, brought one computer for them . The two brothers were using it for playing games and occasional paintings , at first . After some time , they created some presentations and showed it to their school teachers . They were encouraged by their teachers . Then, the two brothers made one 'mobile application development' which was like catching a thief who was just fled from prison ( one type of game ) . The game "Catch Me Cop " was downloaded nearly 2000 times during the first month .
This has been reviewed by the media website CNET .
They have also developed three Alphabet Boards, which can be read with iPhone and iPad .
They created a social website www.godimensions.com later . The social site was downloaded more then 10,000 time in 20 countries till now .
They stated that both of them were influenced by Bill Gates and Steve Jobs .
Today is September 5th ( in India ) , the Teachers' Day .
We celebrate this occasion since our childhood .
For our Masters , we are always students . Teachers build the future of us . Generally , the teachers lead simple lives and our society thinks little of the teachers .
Our late President Dr. Sarbapali Radhakrishnan advised the countrymen to stop to observe the 5th September as his birthday , but to observe it as the Teachers' Day . Since the year 1962 ,the 5th September is observed as the Teachers' Day , every year .
Teachers teach us all art and all sciences . They teach the manner and behaviors . They make us the useful members of our nation .On the Teachers' Day , the whole nation gets a chance to think of them .
We , on this day , think of how to give our teachers their due place in the society and how to honor them . We , on this day , express our gratitude to our teachers for their grand social service .
There are always contradictory thoughts , we have in our minds .
There is a color "black" and a color "white" . There is " zero " and there is " infinite".
And likewise there is "Truth" and there is " Untruth ".
We , in the process of living on earth, face "birth" and "death" .
In order to come out of these duality , we need the help of our Masters .
It is all like a glass with water , half full or half empty .
There is no clear difference between wise and fool or rich and poor .
Time changes them all at intervals .
I come across the following blog sometimes back .
