New Delhi: British Airways made a commercial having India and its culture as the central theme. The advertisement is based on a true event in which the story is about a new air hostess, Helena and her first visit to India.

The video shows that the nerves and frame of mind she goes through and how she meets an old lady on the flight. Both help each other.

The old lady who was missing her son was taken care of by Helena and as a result of this, she invites her to Hyderabad. Helena goes to her home and witnesses the Indian culture and this experience leaves her mesmerized.

Through the ad, British Airways is trying to woo Indians commuters. It says, ‘Loving India for 125 years’’. While the video is a nice attempt to show the warmth of relationships and culture but it is a way to attract Indians which will directly be beneficial to the business. The advertisement, however, was received positively so far by the public.

Earlier this week British band Coldplay was under fire for the stereotypical representation of Indian culture. (inputs from agencies)

Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A Peace Visionary and a Man Who Believed in India’s Destiny and was Ready To Fight For It

It was precisely this persona of Vajpayee -- one merged in Hindutva ideology yet seemingly not wholly willing to bow to it -- that won him admirers cutting across the political spectrum.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee was a man of moderation in a fraternity of jingoistic nationalists; a peace visionary in a region riven by religious animosity; and a man who believed in India’s destiny and was ready to fight for it.

Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee (93), who died on Thursday, will go down in history as a person who tried to end years of hostility with Pakistan and put development on the front burner of the country’s political agenda. He was also the first non-Congress Prime Minister to complete a full five-year term.

Even though he lived the last 13 years of his life in virtual isolation, dogged by debilitating illnesses and bedridden, he has left an enduring legacy for the nation and the region where he was much loved and respected across the political spectrum and national boundaries, including in Pakistan.
