Its 50 years since First Human Journey into outer space - Yuri Gagarin- A Film - A Doodle and Yoodle

On April 12, 1961 the first earthling escaped the gravity well of planet earth. In the spaceship Vostok 1, Senior Lieutenant Yuri Alexeyevich Gagarin orbited earth one time at an altitude of 187 3/4 miles (302 kilometers) for 108 minutes at 18,000 miles an hour. He was the first man to see that the earth was indeed round, indeed mostly water, and indeed magnificent. 

An image from the day of the launch had been painted onto the hulking Soyuz rocket, which was being tugged across the plain by an ageing diesel train. As the rocket was winched into its launch position, the face swivelled upright. Alongside it was the word “Poyekali”, or “Let’s go”, Gagarin’s final statement before he was launched into history.

Government to set a committee to draft Lok Pal Bill - Anna Hazare calls off fast

The Jantar Mantar in New Delhi is a hot favourite of the average tourist in the summer. But since 5 April 2011, the astronomical observation site has become a focus of an anti-corruption campaign that has never been seen before, thanks to Anna Hazare. After decades of utter frustration, this one man, a veteran Gandhian, has emerged as the champion for tackling the menace of corruption. His crusade is a measure of the pent-up anger, especially among the young, springing from the manner in which politicians of all hues are taking the country for a ride through misuse of office and naked corruption. With the gap between the haves and have-nots widening, there is a sense of frustration among the diminishing tribe of honest Indians which is ready to explode.

Gandhian Anna Hazare on Saturday called off his hunger strike bringing to an end his 98-hour protest after government issued a gazette notification constituting a 10-member Joint Committee of ministers and civil society activists, including him, to draft an effective Lok Pal Bill.

Curtains were drawn on the anti-corruption campaign that drew instant nationwide support with a little girl giving the 73-year-old activist a glass of water at 10.45 am at Jantar Mantar, the nerve-centre of the agitation for a strong legislation to combat political and administrative graft...

Crickets Most Intense Rivalry - India Vs Pak World Cup Semis - DARE MISS IT

India Vs Pakistan

 

Those three words alone conjure up such vibrant images of tense encounters on dust-bowl pitches watched by fiercely partisan crowds.

An English cricket fan can watch his team humbled at Lord's, shrug his shoulders, and mumble: "Well, there's always the rugby." So as for Australia, south Africa.

For Indians and Pakistanis, there is no such cheap escape clause. Unbending loyalty, unyielding faith and an all-consuming passion for the game seep through their veins when they watch their heroes perform on the big stage.

It's Five years since the first tweet and Twitter is a Gaint Now

Five years ago, answering a simple question like ‘What are you doing?' in 140 characters seemed pointless, even impossible, back then when bloggers took pride over how detailed or nuanced their entries were.

When in 2009, the folks at Twitter changed the vital question that everybody was answering to ‘What's happening?' it indeed reflected a shift in how we perceived microblogging. From mundane updates on breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to a snappy tool — thanks to mobile phones — that allowed people to reflect on what's happening around them,

 Twitter has come a long way. On March 21, it will be five years since Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey sent out the first tweet, a short and not-so-chirpy message: “just setting up my twttr.”
