Flourishing Travel Business of Bangalore

Vishwanath is the son of Satya a Driver at ADE a DRDO organization. I should know Satya as I was at ADE for 26 years till I retired in 2003. Vishwanath a Tall well built man of 29 years is engaged to get married shortly in November 2009. He is a very satisfied person in life with his travel business. He has a regular contract with CISCO. CISCO offices are at Ring road Devabisana halli, near Intel Offices.

Satya the Father of Vishwanath is an introvert indulging in occasional drinking. Vishwanath shuns drinking. However Vishwanath has the smoking habit. I could not resist my temptation to advice Vishwanath to quit smoking in favor of occasional drinking. Vishwanath promised to come and tell me shortly about his quitting the smoking habit. However he is avers to drinking habit due to the bad experience of his father.

The secret of Vishwanath happiness is his travel business which is flourishing well. He owns a Quails apart from the present Innova which will be his in 2 years when the loan on it will get cleared. The current recession is a reality evident to Vishwanath. However we both agreed that better days are ahead after the current recession. Vishwanath has the ambition of owning a bus and setting up a travel business of his own.

On line Wiki Communities

Wiki communities

WIKI is an acronym defined as "What I Know Is". By definition WIKI is a collaborative website whose content can be created by a collaborative effort of a community. There can be a hierarchy of increasing rights to perform different levels of controlling content and its effective delivery etc. This hierarchy can be visualized as tree structure with root having the controlling share holding. Software which facilitates such open hierarchical editing tree structure is called Wiki technology [from Hawaiian Wiki-Wiki quick] Wikipedia for example is an online collaborative encyclopedia with absolute controls with Mr. [?].

Online groups of people with interest in intellectual pursuits of any kind single or multiple which are inherently binding in nature, with no considerations for monetary gains can form Wiki communities. Praja, Flicker, Face book and India together for example are some of the Wiki communities. These communities in tern can generate soft online material like photos in Flicker, Personalities in face book, which could be shared easily. The names of these communities are innovative enough to capture the essence of their presence on the internet.

India together is a online Magazine with an exclusive editorial board for Internet empowered Concerned Citizens of India Providing (1) in depth Information about public Interest matters and (2) live Understanding of Social, political and Policy matters as well.(3) Facilitating the Sharing of Expert knowledge towards above. Mass media cannot allocate much space for depth because advertisement revenue is the key. Commercial media primarily provide news of a perceived immediate utility for a mass audience. Common denomination is mass interest. While the inherent driving motivation for WIKI communities are intellectual.

Praja community is an Indian citizen centric community extending to all of the Indian cities.
