Vande Matram India - Google Video

This playback is much better. Like the beats man ... What can I say, I am more rhythm than melody.



Vande Matram - Lata Mangeswar - Google Video

More tricolors. The playback is not that good though.



jana gana mana......National Song of India - Google Video

I have always thought that the Indian flag had very dull colours, and used to very much admire the sparkling bright colours of the USA or the regal blue, red and white of the British Isles. But it appears that the flag colours are only as bright as you can make them to be. I simply love the shimmering, glowing, fluttering saffron, green and blue tricolour in this video. It makes me feel very proud.

There may not be riches, beauty or wisdom but there is HOPE! And it is one eternally energizing, "mind blowing", ultimate happiness-giving constant company. Does hope lead to love or is love what hope seeks for, forever ?

When I see that flag, this is the primary thought in my emotional self.

See if it sparks something within you too

Tagnautica - Explore the Flickr Tag Space

The integration of websites with API is an interesting concept. Many "mash-up" websites now use the content of underlying provider websites to create interesting client websites with added or derived functionality. There are many many Google maps based "mash-ups". This is a new example of a mash-up with Yahoo's Flickr.

Heim theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So this the gyan which would perhaps enable the Hyperdrive engine.

We have not even started travelling across Space yet, and scientists would start experimenting on travelling through unproven "hyperspace". Rocket to the Mars in about 3 hours now ... Perfect !!

Google Braille

A powerful means of showcasing Google features - the Google logo link is. The logo links to something interesting related to a particular date or time. And now a days more often than not, that gives some extra information available which was created by parsing content from the web.

Case in point, the birthday of Louis Braille, linked via image inserted below on the Google home page. Led me to google images, and wikipedia site. However when reading the translation of the Braille text in the image, the liter translation came out to 'GOOGLE Note the apostrophe before GOOGLE. Does this denote the start of a comment in the Python programming language? It does in VB though.
