Our Great INDIA.

Do you know that India is the richest country in the world!
Right now, India is the richest country in the world! Wondering how? It's really amazing. It's due to Mr. G Vaidyaraj, who donated all his wealth, about which he
actually did not know. He is a descendent of Raja Krishnadev Raya from Mysore district. For the last 300 years or so, three stones were worshipped in his
house. But nobody tried to see what it was, except this person, who is a lawyer by profession. One day, when there was nobody in his house, he took the stone out to
see what it was that they worship. Due to the dust deposited on it, from many many years, it looked only like a simple stone. But when he touched it, some portion of the stone was cleansed. And he saw a bright ray of light. He saw something which attracted his attention. And he was amazed when he cleaned all of them. The whole room was filled with light. He discovered they were diamonds of about 4600 carats each. He informed the Govt. of India and the news is censored with its security. It's now deposited in a Swiss Bank. The cost of single diamond exceeds the GDP of USA + UK. India can buy virtually 7 developing nations. Even World Bank does not have enough money to buy it. One diamond costs thrice the debt of World Bank over India . One such diamond can buy 10 Bill Gates to you. And the World Bank has proposed the Indian Govt. that it can pay India in Installment if it wishes to do so. India's GDP is 34.25 billion dollars. Bill Gates' property is 95 billion dollars approximate so that is the way "nature changes". Our Prime Minister has refused to sell it. He said
it will be sold or mortgaged for credit when we need it. Otherwise right now we have no problems. You can go through Times of India with a small column on it a week ago. Star TV presented a 115 minute documentary on it about 15 days ago. The Hindu with its half page article in it. After that it was censored as classified. Another good news is that in the Desert of Thar a deposit of Oil and Natural gas have been found. This stores what Kuwait has in its stomach. India can go with this ONGC energy reserve with another 30 years. And moreover it! can export it to other counties. It's incredible!! But true. An Indian boy in his 12th standard has disproved Einstein's "Theory of Relativity". Shocked? Read on... Sudarshan Reddy has theoretically proven the existence of a sub-atomic particle, which can travel at speed greater than that of light, thereby challenging one of the fundamental postulates of the "Theory of Relativity". In his recent research paper submitted to the Institute of Advanced
Physics (IAP) at Trieste ( Italy ), Sudarshan has proved the existence of a class of sub-atomic particles called "leptons",which can travel faster than light. The international physics community is shocked by this discovery. Dr.Massimo Martelli, President of the IAP has this to say about the paper submitted by Sudarshan. "After long, careful and critical analysis, I can confidently say that Sudarshan's re search papers show tremendous leap in our understanding of physics. His investigation mounts up on "leptons". His work builds substantially on the work of Einstein and others in the field of relativity." When physicists from Princeton University tried to measure Sudarshan's IQ with an IQ-meter (at the American Embassy in Delhi ), the meter
broke down. Sudarshan,incidentally, is the brother of Madhu Reddy, the Indian whiz
kid who developed an operating system superior to Microsoft Windows. We should all be very proud of these boys.

New Game: SPORE

From the mind of Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, comes SPORE™, an epic journey that takes you from the origin and evolution of life through the development of civilization and technology and eventually all the way into the deepest reaches of outer space. These are six phases in this game.
  1. Tide Pool Phase: Fight with other creatures and consume them to adjust the form and abilities of your creature. It’s survival of the fittest at the most microscopic level.
  2. Creature Phase: Venture onto land and help your creature learn and evolve with forays away from your nest. The only way to grow is by taking chances!
  3. Tribal Phase: Instead of controlling an individual creature, you are now caring for an entire tribe. Give them tools and guide their interactions as you upgrade their state of existence.
  4. City Phase: Bring your creatures’ race into a new golden era by building up the technology, architecture, and infrastructure of their city.
  5. Civilizaion Phase: Once your city is established, your creatures begin seeking out and interacting with other cultures. Make contact with an olive branch or a war cry. The goal for your creatures is to conquer the planet.
  6. Space Phase: The time has come to move on to other worlds in your solar system. Make contact, colonize, or terraform, then venture further to find other solar systems. A ‘mission’ structure provides new goals in your quest for galactic dominance.
This game is said to be the best game ever to be launched and the gamers are eagerly waiting for its release. Click here to see the trailer from 2006's E3 conference.
