Everyone knows that the best way to spur economic and social progress in a developing country like India is to connect citizens to information & ideas, which in turn bring more people access to capital. And capital is key to avail any service. Once Internet connectivity crosses the threshold and becomes ultra mass, it has the power to change life as we know it today.
In this regard it is indeed heartening to know that a tech powerhosue like Intel has launched The Connected Indian Movement which aims to be “the catalyst for delivering the power of the Internet into the hands of a billion Indians. “ Over the next few months Intel along with its key partners will “mobilize people, resources & infrastructure to facilitate Internet adoption. Overtime, this collaboration will help build partnerships between people, Industries and stakeholders via a complete and connected ecosystem to accelerate the growth of Internet and its benefits to the society.”
Intel has even launched an interactive application on Facebook called “Virtual Yatra”. Below is a screen grab of the Facebook app. Do join the movement on Facebook at:
