Today, Google announced beta support for Hindi handwriting and ability to switch to a native Hindi experience for Android. These are baby steps to make the Hindi internet simpler to use, the Internet giant claims. The new feature allows users to type in Hindi on a touchscreen, using fingers/a stylus after which it recognizes the characters on its own.
"We believe you should be able to use the internet in Hindi as easily as you read and write today. No matter what kind of handwriting you have, Google can help you find exactly what you’re looking for — so here’s to Handwrite in Hindi, we hope you have as much fun using it as we did creating it!" the Google India blog said on Wednesday.
How it works?
Write in Hindi and you shall find on Google Search Handwrite enables you to search by just writing letters with your finger or stylus anywhere on your device’s screen—there’s no keyboard that covers half of the screen and no need for typing.
Here’s how you can start scribbling away
1. Go to www.google.co.in in your mobile browser, tap on “Settings” at the bottom of the screen, go to Search Settings and enable “Handwrite.”
2. Change language in Google products to Hindi. Also add “Hindi” as a Language of Search Results. Note that after you've saved the setting, you may need to refresh the homepage to see the feature. On tablets, the Search settings are available as an option behind the gear icon.
3. Once the feature is enabled, tap the Handwrite icon on the bottom right corner of your screen to activate Handwrite mode. Write a few letters and you’ll see autocomplete options appear below the search box. If one of the options is what you’re looking for, just tap it to search.
4. For longer queries, you can continue writing a string of characters and then use the arrows next to the auto completions to move the right one into the search box. Remember, you can write anywhere on the screen.
The handwrite feature is currently available on all Android 2.3+ phones, Android 4.0+ tablets and iOS5+ devices.
Author's comment: While there are many handwriting recognition apps and built in software in phones and tablets, the option to make a Google page outside of an app recognize handwriting is awesome. Who knows it could bring handwriting back in style?
Handwrite tips and tricks
Delete letters: Touch the backspace icon at the bottom of the page.
Start over: Touch X in the search box at the top of the page.
Clarify ambiguous characters: When you type a character that could be mistaken for another, like 0 (the number) and O (the letter), a list of options may appear at the bottom of the screen.
Use predictions: To help save you time, a list of predicted queries may appear in the search box as you write. Touch a prediction to search for that query, or touch the arrow to the right of a query to explore related searches.
Include symbols: Try symbols and special characters such as + @ & $

Throughout the country please stop using cars except for emergency for only seven days (Just 7 days)
Definitely Dollar rate will come down. This is true. The value to dollar is given by petrol only.This is called Derivative Trading. America has stopped valuing its Dollar with Gold 70 years ago.Americans understood that Petrol is equally valuable as Gold so they made Agreement with all the Middle East countries to sell petrol in Dollars only. That is why Americans print their Dollar as legal tender for debts. This mean if you don't like their American Dollar and go to their Governor and ask for repayment in form of Gold, as in India they won't give you Gold.
You observe Indian Rupee, " I promise to pay the bearer..." is clearly printed along with the signature of Reserve Bank Governor. This mean, if you don't like Indian Rupee and ask for repayment, Reserve Bank of India will pay you back an equal value of gold.(Actually there may be minor differences in the Transaction dealing rules, but for easy comprehension I am explaining this)
Let us see an example. Indian petroleum minister goes to Middle East country to purchase petrol, the Middle East petrol bunk people will say that liter petrol is one Dollar.
But Indians won't have dollars. They have Indian Rupees. So what to do now? So That Indian Minister will ask America to give Dollars. American Federal Reserve will take a white paper, print Dollars on it and give it to the Indian Minister. Like this we get dollars , pay it to petrol bunks and buy petrol.
But there is a fraud here. If you change your mind and want to give back the Dollars to America we can't demand them to pay Gold in return for the Dollars. They will say “Have we promised to return something back to you? Haven't you checked the Dollar ? We clearly printed on the Dollar that it is Debt"
So, Americans don't need any Gold with them to print Dollars. They will print Dollars on white papers as they like.
But what will Americans give to the Middle East countries for selling petrol in Dollars only?
Middle East kings pay rent to America for protecting their kings and heirs. Similarly they are still paying back the Debt to America for constructing Roads and Buildings in their countries. This is the value of American Dollar. That is why Many say some day the Dollar will be destroyed.
At present the problem of India is the result of buying those American Dollars. American white papers are equal to Indian Gold. So if we reduce the consumption of petrol and cars, Dollar will come down
The Above Details are translated originally from Telugu Language to English by Radhika Gr.
Kindly share this and make everyone aware of the facts of American Dollar V/s Indian Rupee.
And here is a small thing other than petrol , what we can do to our Indian Rupee
YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE INDIAN ECONOMY BY FOLLOWING FEW SIMPLE STEPS:-
Please spare a couple of minutes here for the sake of India.
Here's a small example:-
Before 12 months 1 US $ = INR Rs 39
After 12 months, now 1 $ = INR Rs 62
Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down.
Our economy is in your hands. INDIAN economy is in a crisis. Our country like many other ASIAN countries, is undergoing a severe economic crunch. Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation. More than 30,000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages, etc. which are grown, produced and consumed here.
A cold drink that costs only 70 / 80 paisa to produce is sold for Rs.9 and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy. We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our own interest we request everybody to use INDIAN products only at least for the next two years. With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not do this, the Rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much more for the same products in the near future.
What you can do about it?
Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES. Each individual should become a leader for this awareness. This is the only way to save our country from severe economic crisis. You don't need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate product.
Daily products which are COLD DRINKS,BATHING SOAP ,TOOTH PASTE,TOOTH BRUSH ,SHAVING CREAM,BLADE, TALCUM POWDER ,MILK POWDER ,SHAMPOO , Food Items etc. all you need to do is buy Indian Goods and Make sure Indian rupee is not crossing outside India.
Every INDIAN product you buy makes a big difference. It saves INDIA. Let us take a firm decision today.
we are not anti-multinational. we are trying to save our nation. every day is a struggle for a real freedom. we achieved our independence after losing many lives.
they died painfully to ensure that we live peacefully. the current trend is very threatening.
multinationals call it globalization of Indian economy. for Indians like you and me, it is re-colonization of India. the colonist's left India then. but this time, they will make sure they don't make any mistakes.

If you talk to most Indian internet users they will talk about how they have to lose time in getting the right speed and the sort of issues that continue to affect them on the daily basis and how internet providers don’t really tend to listen to their complaint. There is a chronic problem of inaction when it comes to servicing the internet connection. If your connection is lost due to myriad reasons you can be sure to not have net connectivity for the next several days till actually some miracle happens.
This is the reason that most internet users even in cities like New Delhi, the Indian capital, look so much disappointed with it. The latest Akamai Technologies’ State of the Internet report puts India 109th rank in the world when it comes to top peak speed average of 10.6 Mbps. It is 27% faster than the last quarter and 34% faster than last year. But when it comes to average internet connection speed, it is still 1.3 Mbps and is the lowest among Asian nations. The average internet connection speed in Korea is as high as 14.2Mbps. when it comes to global average connection speed, it is substantially higher than India’s average speed. the average internet speed in the world is 3.1 Mbps, said Akamai Technologies’ State of the Internet report

Borobudur, or Barabudur, is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument consists of six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues.A main dome, located at the center of the top platform, is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues seated inside a perforated stupa.
Built in the 9th century during the reign of the Sailendra Dynasty, the temple's design in Gupta architecture reflects India's influence on the region. It also depicts the gupta style from India and shows influence of Buddhism as well as Hinduism. The monument is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage. The journey for pilgrims begins at the base of the monument and follows a path around the monument and ascends to the top through three levels symbolic of Buddhist cosmology: Kāmadhātu (the world of desire), Rupadhatu (the world of forms) andArupadhatu (the world of formlessness). The monument guides pilgrims through an extensive system of stairways and corridors with 1,460 narrative relief panels on the walls and the balustrades.
Evidence suggest Borobudur was constructed in the 9th century and abandoned following the 14th century decline of Hindu kingdoms in Java, and the Javanese conversion to Islam. Worldwide knowledge of its existence was sparked in 1814 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, then the British ruler of Java, who was advised of its location by native Indonesians. Borobudur has since been preserved through several restorations. The largest restoration project was undertaken between 1975 and 1982 by the Indonesian government and UNESCO, following which the monument was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Borobudur is still used for pilgrimage; once a year Buddhists in Indonesia celebrate Vesak at the monument, and Borobudur is Indonesia's single most visited tourist attraction.

Pumapunku also called Puma Pumku or Puma Puncu, is part of a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.
Tiwanaku is significant in Inca traditions because it is believed to be the site where the world was created.In Aymara, Puma Punku's name means "The Door of the Puma". The Pumapunku complex consists of an unwalled western court, a central unwalled esplanade, a terraced platform mound that is faced with megalithic stone, and a walled eastern court.
The Pumapunku is a terraced earthen mound that is faced with megalithic blocks. It is 167.36 meters wide along its north-south axis and 116.7 meters long along its east-west axis. On the northeast and southeast corners of the Pumapunku it has 20-meter wide projections that extend 27.6 meters north and south from the rectangular mound. The eastern edge of the Pumapunku is occupied by what is called the "Plataforma Lítica". The Plataforma Lítica consists of a stone terrace that is 6.75 by 38.72 meters in dimension. This terrace is paved with multiple enormous stone blocks. It contains the largest stone slab found in both the Pumapunku and Tiwanaku Site. This stone slab is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide and averages 1.07 meters thick. Based upon the specific gravity of the red sandstone from which it was carved, this stone slab has been estimated to weigh 131 metric tons.
The other stonework and facing of the Pumapunku consists of a mixture of andesite and red sandstone. The core of the Pumapunku consists of clay. The fill underlying selected parts of the edge of the Pumapunku consists of river sand and cobbles instead of clay. Excavations at the Pumapunku have documented "three major building epochs, in addition to small repairs and remodeling".
At its peak, Pumapunku is thought to have been "unimaginably wondrous",adorned with polished metal plaques, brightly colored ceramic and fabric ornamentation, trafficked by costumed citizens, elaborately dressed priests and elites decked in exotic jewelry. Current understanding of this complex is limited due to its age, the lack of a written record, the current deteriorated state of the structures due to treasure hunting, looting, stone mining for building stone and railroad ballast, and natural weathering.
The area within the kilometer separating the Pumapunku and Kalasasaya complexes has been surveyed using ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, induced electrical conductivity, and magnetic susceptibility. The geophysical data collected from these surveys and excavations have revealed in the area between the Pumapunku and Kalasasaya complexes the presence of numerous man-made structures. These structures include the wall foundations of buildings and compounds, water conduits, pool-like features, revetments, terraces, residential compounds, and widespread gravel pavements all of which now lie buried and hidden beneath the modern ground’s surface.
An OLED (organic light-emitting diode) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound which emits light in response to an electric current. This layer of organic semiconductor is situated between two electrodes. Generally, at least one of these electrodes is transparent. OLEDs are used to create digital displays in devices such as television screens, computer monitors, portable systems such as mobile phones, handheld games consoles and PDAs. A major area of research is the development of white OLED devices for use in solid-state lighting applications.
There are two main families of OLED: those based on small molecules and those employing polymers. Adding mobile ions to an OLED creates a light-emitting electrochemical cell or LEC, which has a slightly different mode of operation. OLED displays can use either passive-matrix (PMOLED) or active-matrix addressing schemes. Active-matrix OLEDs (AMOLED) require a thin-film transistor backplane to switch each individual pixel on or off, but allow for higher resolution and larger display sizes.
An OLED display works without a backlight. Thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD). In low ambient light conditions such as a dark room an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD, whether the LCD uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps or LED backlight.

Device Administrators list on your handset. This means that using normal methods, Android users will be unable to uninstall the app – as its admin privileges need to be deactivated prior to an uninstall option being accessible. This sneaky trick of the cyber-fraudsters ensures that the app is likely to remain unnoticed on the device for longer, allowing the malware to manage the device remotely.
Exploiting a previously-unknown vulnerability in the Android operating system to conceal itself in the Device Admin list, once the malware is present it’s free to wreak havoc, potentially sending premium SMS messages, downloading further malware and spreading to other devices that are connected via Bluetooth to the infected device. Arguably of most concern out of these consequences, is the possibility that users will be left with phone bills running to hundreds or thousands of dollars, if their device is used to send premium SMS messages remotely.
It’s recommended that users download and install a fix in order to check whether they have become infected with the malware, however at the time of writing there is limited support available from device manufacturers or the security industry for this issue.
Fortunately, Norton Halt – Symantec’s first-responder ‘fix’ tool for Android threats – includes a new, unique feature that scans and reveals any apps that have hidden their own presence in the Device Administrator list. After installing and running the scan from within Norton Halt, users should deactivate any apps that are revealed to be hiding their device admin privileges. Once the app has been deactivated, users can then uninstall the app in the usual manner from the Settings -> Application Manager menu.
As always, we recommend that smartphone and tablet users pay close attention to the permissions each app is requesting on installation, that apps are only installed from legitimate app stores, and to be cautious when installing apps from unknown app developers. To maintain your privacy, it’s increasingly important to install an up-to-date security app on your Android handset, such as Norton Mobile Security.

Angkor is a region of Cambodia that served as the seat of the Khmer Empire, which flourished from approximately the 9th to 15th centuries. The word Angkor is derived from the Sanskrit nagara (नगर), meaning "city". The Angkorian period began in AD 802, when the Khmer Hindu monarch Jayavarman II declared himself a "universal monarch" and "god-king", until 1351, when Angkor first fell under Ayutthayan suzerainty, to 1431, when Ayutthaya put down a rebellion and sacked the Khmer capital, causing its population to migrate south to Longvek.
The ruins of Angkor are located amid forests and farmland to the north of the Great Lake (Tonlé Sap) and south of the Kulen Hills, near modern-day Siem Reap city (13°24′N, 103°51′E), in Siem Reap Province. The temples of the Angkor area number over one thousand, ranging in scale from nondescript piles of brick rubble scattered through rice fields to the magnificent Angkor Wat, said to be the world's largest single religious monument. Many of the temples at Angkor have been restored, and together, they comprise the most significant site of Khmer architecture. Visitor numbers approach two million annually, and the entire expanse, including Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom is collectively protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This popularity of the site among tourists presents multiple challenges to the preservation of the ruins.
In 2007, an international team of researchers using satellite photographs and other modern techniques concluded that Angkor had been the largest preindustrial city in the world, with an elaborate system of infrastructure connecting an urban sprawl of at least 1,000 square kilometres (390 sq mi) to the well-known temples at its core.The closest rival to Angkor, the Mayan city of Tikal in Guatemala, was between 100 and 150 square kilometres (39 and 58 sq mi) in total size.Although its population remains a topic of research and debate, newly identified agricultural systems in the Angkor area may have supported up to one million people.
