As I am writing this post, I have the pleasure of viewing a fabulously interesting TV programme on how Governments in countries such Singapore and Taiwan popularise cycling.  I think that policy makers in our country should learn lessons from such programmes and implement them here as well.

Divine Marriage

As I write this post, I have the joy of viewing the divine marriage of Shree Raama with Shree Seethaa Devi at the famous Bhadraachalam temple, thanks to Bhakthi TV channel.  (If my beloved mother were alive, she would have derived the joy of viewing the program).

An oasis in the TV media desert

Any sensible person knows that most of our TV programs are meaningless.

One of my most favourite TV channels is Tokyo based NHK. This morning I had the pleasure of viewing an interesting program known as 'FIRST CLASS'  on this channel. It involved a Stanford University professor and a few students. The professor was involving students into identification of problems and finding out meaningful and cost effective solutions.

The program took me down the memory lane to all my students and colleagues in different countries toward a common goal: Need based innovation and Quality education.

(I have mentioned about my experiences in my earlier posts).
