Incredible India – Government of India takes to youtube for Tourism Promotion

Posted by abyjain on August 14, 2007

🙂 The good feeling again… when you see the government and its arms do something constructive. I can’t help but think though that there would be a private contractor behind this as well. Imagine… we’re so stuck with inactive/lethargic governance that I refuse to believe someone in the tourism ministry or someplace took the initiative to get this campaign to youtube. Of course, this has been one of the big successes of the government of India in the recent past – the Incredible India campaign.

Of course, being a dutiful Indian, it has to feature on my blog as well. I’m wondering how many people on slow connections would have the patience to watch them…

Dunno how many of them are official videos and how many from other sources… but it’s all good!

Global Warming awareness

Posted by abyjain on July 23, 2007

I’ve always wanted to put up a lot of images from all over the web on my blog. Again, my ineptness at handling html etc. had me by my @#$%^ as far as this initiative was concerned. Now, once again I have wordpress to my rescue and here is the first of such images to come on my blog. I am sure this is going to be a good affair 😉

The human hand isn’t always creative.
Sometimes it destroys… The polar ice caps are melting. We can all do something to slow down global warming. It’s in our hand to save the planet.
