Community building has been at the foundation of @114918475211209783081’s success. He often uses circles to bring together small groups of people to opt into various campaigns and has published several case studies (http://bit.ly/1rdJiNH) using data mined from @108883357423682942734 that show the importance of getting others from your community involved in order to ensure the success of your campaign.  Martin recently announced a new initiative, “PYB Neighborhoods” (http://bit.ly/1jYiXiG), which will soon bring brand pages together in a new and unique way. As with Martin’s other initiatives, *PYB Neighborhoods* will involve building small communities by bringing together people and businesses that are committed to the success of the project. *Influence Marketing Tools N' Techniques* @117778937939543425499 & @108210288375340023376 launched *Influence Marketing Tools N' Techniques* aka #TNTBootcamp to an audience of over 300 who were eager to learn more about the tools used to identify and engage with key influencers on Google Plus and to understand how to "get on the radar" themselves.

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.

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.

India's first Test match - 1932
India made their Test debut way back in 1932 under the leadership of Colonel CK Nayudu against England. An Indian cricket team toured England under the title of the “All-India” team. This was the first Test match ever played by India. England won by 158 runs after scoring 259 and 275-8 declared while India was bowled out for 189 and 187.

And today, India will make their 500th Test appearance when they lock horns with New Zealand.

Indo-Pakistani War of 1965
The Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 was a culmination of skirmishes that took place between Apr-Sep 1965. The conflict began following Pakistan's infiltration into Jammu and Kashmir to precipitate an insurgency against Indian rule.

Despite the cease-fire rendering the conflict militarily inconclusive, most neutral assessments, agree that India had the upper hand over Pakistan and the conflict is widely seen as a strategic and political defeat for Pakistan.

Education in 1950s
Following independence, India viewed education as an effective tool for bringing social change through community development. The administrative control was effectively initiated in the 1950s and the government grouped villages under a Community Development Block, which controlled education in villages.

Ganesh Chaturthi -1940s
It is a Hindu festival celebrated in honor of the elephant-headed god, Ganesha. The festival is celebrated by families at home, by people at their places of work and in public. The public celebration involves installing clay images of Ganesha in public pandals.
At home, an appropriately-sized clay image is installed and worshiped with family and friends. At the end of the festival, the idols are immersed in a large body of water such as the sea, river or a lake. The clay idols disintegrate over time in the water.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone!

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

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+

India at the Olympics
India sent its first athlete to the Olympics for the 1900 games, but an Indian national team did not compete at the Olympics until 1920. For a period of time, India national field hockey team was dominant in Olympic competition, winning 11 medals in 12 Olympics between 1928 and 1980. The run included 8 gold medals total and six successive gold medals from 1928–1956.

India's field hockey team, captained by hockey wizard Dhyan Chand (standing second from left) was the gold medal winner at the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics.
