If you bought one share of Google in 2004 at its initial public offering price of $85, then it would be two shares worth $1,575 today, taking into account Google's stock split.

That's a stunning 1,752.94% change, or about 18.5x.

The Partition of India was the partition of the British Indian Empire that led to the creation of India And Pakistan. Just after midnight, on 15 August 1947, India became a sovereign and democratic nation.

Massive population exchanges occurred between the two newly formed states in the months immediately following Partition. "The population of undivided India in 1947 was approx 390 million. After partition, there were 330 million people in India, 30 million in West Pakistan, and 30 million people in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh).

In the riots which preceded the partition in the Punjab Province, there were huge casualties and UNHCR estimates 14 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims were displaced during the partition; it was the largest mass migration in human history.

The Movement spanned a total of 190 years (1757-1947). The movement involved many political and social organisations and armed and unarmed struggle.

Many people and political ideas contributed to the movement. Prominent among them was Subhas Chandra Bose, one of India’s greatest freedom fighter.

Tagore and Gandhi 1940.

The two great representatives of Modern India - Tagore and Gandhi met for the first time in March 1915 at Santiniketan. Even before the two actually met, a mutual regard existed between them. They met many times after that.

Tagore was the first notable contemporary to refer to Gandhi as Mahatma. Gandhiji also called him Gurudev, a term of respect by which many others called the poet. Photo below is when Gandhi and Kasturba visited Santiniketan in 1940.

Collections, one of the best features of Google+

#collections #googlepus

Why Collections?
We on the Google+ team often get asked why are you making this or that change? What's the thinking behind product changes/features. To that end, thought I'd share my perspective on why Collections?...

Collections allows people to organize what they publish into multiple topics. These topics can be followed or unfollowed. This:

* helps readers to get more content with control they don’t have when just following people. many other social sites are "all or nothing" when it comes to following people.

* frees up content creators to publish more and not worry about overloading followers. we often hear concerns about "spamming my followers" with posts they might consider irrelevant.

* encourages content creators to post across multiple interests instead of focusing only on one topic. i.e. don't just have to be the "deep sea photography person"

* gives content creators archiving abilities they long for. many publish as personal catalogs/journals and for recovery (get back to my content) reasons.

* content creators bemoan all their content disappearing "into the stream”, collections provide a way to give their posts re-newed life and permanence.

Hope that gives some sense of the thinking behind the Collections feature. Thanks~___Collections, one of the best features of Google+

Yoga and Food
When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need ~Ayurvedic Proverb

Practicing Yoga asanas is one of the most beneficial regimes, but when complemented with the healthy food habits, it can really create wonders.Eating the right food is an essential part of living a Yogic life.

Yoga, does not dissect food into proteins, carbohydrates or fats, instead it classifies them according to the effect they have on the body and mind, into three types – satva, rajas and tamas.
Tamasic food is the kind of food which makes us lethargic or sluggish, while Rajasic food is that which brings about activity or restlessness. Whereas, Sattvic food is the kind which makes you feel light, energetic and enthusiastic.

Yoga with right food is the way to have a healthy life !

Amazing Living Root Bridges, Meghalaya, India.

Meghalaya is one of the world’s wettest regions, receiving some of the highest rainfall ever recorded. One of the challenges that rears-up every year is that of the raging rivers. Crossing these rivers becomes a near impossibility due to the intense rains and wild torrents. However, the people of Meghalaya have been practicing a centuries-old tradition of coaxing tree branches and roots to form natural bridges!

Some of the bridges are over a hundred feet long and can support the weight of fifty or more people. One special root bridge, believed to be the only one of its kind in the world, is actually two bridges stacked one over the other and has come to be known as the Umshiang Double-Decker Root Bridge. Locals have been using these bridges for over 500 years

French trains are being turned into moving art museums

Instead of encouraging people to visit their world-famous landmarks, France’s national state-owned rail service SNCF has come up with a fantastic idea. They’ve decided to bring these landmarks to you, and you can enjoy them at your leisure during your morning commute to work.
The SNCF has been giving trains a series of artistic makeovers. They cover the interiors with graphic film that contains various famous art works.
