Watch this video—I AM INDIAN

The above video is written and performed by a  renowned US-based Comedian Rajiv Satyal. Following is the sum up of what Rajiv says in this video:

We as Indians are today being divided as East-Asians, North-Asians and South-Asians, But why? We are “Indians” solely Indians. Then why are we being divided once again into different groups repeating what the British did to us years back.

India being the third largest economy in the world with a population of 1.3 million why is being pushed towards the verge of ethnic division? Just because an Indian is born in a different country, lives in a different country, sounds like this and eats like that. NO. All this doesn’t mean that we have lost our nationality and patriotism. Our HEARTS are Indian.

India is not just good in numbers, but in its people as well. We haven’t left any scope for the world to not identify us. We are charming, after all; we have given the world iconic singers. From Ravi Shankar to Zubin Mehta to Asha Bhosle to Lata Mageshkar, our music industry is flourished with the best voices. Our romantic Bollywood films and the allure of Kama Sutra are famous all over the world.

We are brainy, we are the ones who invented numbers. We gifted the world the greatest mathematicians like Aryabhata and Srinivasa. We are doctors, engineers and techies. And when we mind our business, we Indians are the third wealthiest ethnic group in America.

We welcome the world for Yoga, to taste our scrumptious cuisine and turning cricket into a multi-billion sport. We meditate, we practice Ayurveda and we have everything-chess, flush toilets, wireless communication, arranged marriages, monuments, scriptures, temples, churches, Gurdwaras and DEMOCRACY.

Our motherland is magical and mystical -with Mahatma Gandhi, Abdul Kalam, Jawaharlal Nehru, Pandits and Gurus being born to it. We preach Dharma, Karma and religious tolerance. We have kismet and Reincarnation. And no matter where you live, which country you belong to, what color you have, what religion you practice, you are WELCOME TO INCREDIBLE INDIA!

JAI HIND!!

Commuters in the national capital can now view “auto-rickshaw” routes as well as fares on Google Maps app, tech giant Google Monday said.

“Starting today, commuters in Delhi will be able to see a new public transport mode in Google Maps — auto-rickshaws. By selecting this mode of transport, commuters will be able to view suggested routes for the ride as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares,” Google said in a statement.

The new feature will reflect fares based on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police, it said.

The latest version of the application includes enhanced voice input.

This feature will be available in the Google Maps app on the Android devices.

The idea is to incorporate one of most commonly used modes of public transport in Google Maps and share transparent information about the price of journey, Google Maps Product Manager Vishal Dutta said.

“Currently, for an unfamiliar journey, commuters often overpay and don’t have an idea about the distance or best route,” he added.

Dutta said the feature will also help the users plan their journey better.

“…so they could look at the expected cost of the auto-rickshaw ride and decide whether they want to take it all the way, or perhaps take a different mode of transport instead — like a bus or the metro,” he explained.
