Actions,Actions and No Talking

I feel pleased to hear that Shivraj Patil has resigned (forcefully or voluntarily). Vilasrao Deshmukh is next.

I don't have my anger against these two politicians, but ownership of what has been done has to be taken, no more blame games.

Now what we need are actions.

This time it will not be the case of "suffered and forgot".

World's Fastest Indian

World's Fastest Indian is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It's a masterpiece played by Anthony Hopkins.

Based on a true story about Burt Munroe from New Zealand.

One of the best inspiring movie you can watch. Dont have words to explain it.

Go and see yourself.

Pardada Pardadi School

It's a long time i have written about anything socially relevant on my blog .

I have been following the blog "Our Delhi Struggle" . They are two New Yorkers that have moved to Delhi and its about their experiences here. Its amusing,thoughtful.

They are also part of few rural initiatives in Uttar Pradesh .

Two such initiatives are:

Pardada Pardadi School in BulandShehr for girl education and vocational training.

Other one is "Rags-to-Pads" initiative that deals with a very basic sanitary need for women - sanitary pads.

Many women in rural India use rags instead of pads during their cycles. This initiative is about setting up a low cost sanitary pad making business to help in better sanitation and raising employment.

They recently raised a fund of $5000 and i am sad that i did not contributed to it. Next time for sure.

Please publicize this and spread the word. We should really appreciate true efforts.

Donate Your PC

My college friends in India has come up with this great idea of providing a platform to people who wish to donate their PC.

www.donateyourpc.in (DYPC) is the site launched by these four guys.

It's still in its beta phase and right now you will have to send an email to the web address provided on the site.

Your PC will be donated to an NGO for further use. You will get the receipt for donation.

I wish this endeavor of them reaches new scales. All the best to you guys and congrats for initiating something like this.
