  ITHIHASA – A 100000 Years Story of BHARATH (INDIA) – Documentary  

The history of India written during the colonial era begins with the Indus Valley Civilization. When this civilization declined, Aryans had invaded or migrated to India who wrote Vedas. In fact, we do not have any chronological history before 500 BCE that’s what modern historians and archaeologists record. But the advanced research based on archaeological, archaeo-astronomical and literary evidence suggests otherwise. India’s history is continuous since the beginnings of Holocene and we Indians proudly call our history as ITIHASA….The word itihAsa splits as iti-ha-Asa and means thus-verily-happened.

Airtel to bring iPhone 4 in India

Apple’s much touted iPhone 4 is soon arriving in India . Airtel is launching the smartphone for the Indian market. The company is reported to bring iPhone 4 in the September-October timeframe may be by diwali.

“We are working with Apple. Hopefully, we will launch it in the September-October timeframe,” Bharti Airtel CEO Sanjay Kapoor told reporters on the sidelines of a CII industry conference.

Earlier, Vodafone had said that it would bring the iPhone 4 to India. However, it did not mention any timeframe .

Bharti Airtel already sells iPhone 3GS in India priced at Rs 35,500 for the 16 GB model and Rs 41,500 for the 32GB model.

With the launch of third generation mobile services in the country by the end of this year, the sale of such high end devices are likely to get a boost.

US-based Apple Inc, the inventor of iPods, iPhones and iPads, had last month announced the launch of the iPhone 4 with a sharper screen and video-chat features in an attempt to ward-off competition from devices running Google’s Android software.

Indian Rupee Symbol

The Indian rupee will soon have a unique symbol, a blend of the Devanagri ‘Ra’ and Roman ‘R’, joining elite currencies like the US dollar, euro, British pound and Japanese yen in having a distinct identity.The new symbol, designed by Bombay IIT post-graduate D Udaya Kumar, was approved by the cabinet today, reflecting that the Indian currency, backed by an over-trillion dollar economy, was finally making its presence felt on the international scene.

Though the symbol will not be printed or embossed on currency notes or coins, it would be included in the ‘Unicode Standard’ and major scripts of the world to ensure that it is easily displayed and printed in the electronic and print media. Among currencies with distinctive identities, only the pound sterling has its symbol printed on the notes.
