Vijay had apparently said to FEFSI President that Ajith is an open book and he never speaks anything with hidden motives. He always speaks from his heart. The non-issue was blown out of proportion only by media.

Vijay also has requested V C Guhanathan to let the issue go and not take any further actions by FEFSI.

India’s largest airport In Delhi will be Ready in March 2010

The developers claim this will be the sixth largest terminal in the world when it opens. This terminal will be able to handle 27 million next year and capacity would be enhanced to 34 million by 2012. And going by the understanding reached with the government, it should reach 100 million by 2026 the last phase of this construction effort. With 78 aerobridges, of which 71 are already installed, the new terminal will be one of the few in the world to service all aircraft through aerobridges. The terminal building covers an area of about 5 million square feet just the area of its roof accounts for 20 acres.

Once inside the departure hall, there will be six check-in islands with 168 check-in counters. This will be an integrated terminal for both domestic and international flights, which will make it easier for transit passengers. A multi-level car parking facility for 4,300 cars is well on course to be ready by next year. Over 20,000 workers are working round the clock everyday among them 100 foreign nationals working in the planning and construction effort to give wings to one of India’s most ambitious projects. About 82 per cent work is over and its developers the GMR group and Fraport (Frankfurt Airport) are confident the airport will be ready in the next four months.

While the developers have to get the terminal ready by March 2010, it may get operational only by July after all the certifications are in place. Once the new terminal opens, the plan is to keep the current international terminal (T2) as a buffer, which can be used to step up capacity during special occasions like the Commonwealth Games.

Airport Council International, Geneva, is said to have been rating the under construction terminal every quarter. Its marking is 4.2 while the quality standard set by the government requires a minimum of 3.5.

Glorious 20 cricketing years of Sachin Tendulkar

About Sachin Tendulkar by Cricketing Greats:

Former Australian skipper Steve Waugh paying him the ultimate tribute by calling him the Bradman of our times.

The last time I watched Sachin was last week when he was on his way to a spectacular 175 and once again I felt that I was watching a player who comes but once in a century.

It can be said that he is the Bradman of our times and I do feel privileged to have played a lot of cricket against him.

Australian skipper Ricky Ponting, The number of innings of his I have been able to sit back and watch, I think he is an amazing player. Look at his stats and records and it’s quite incredible for someone to have stayed in the game for 20 years. He has set benchmarks for guys like me to chase him and get as close as we can. If I had to last 20 years, I would probably be batting in a wheelchair.

Former West Indies captain and batting legend Vivian Richards said there are few better role models in modern cricket than Tendulkar. when he is full flow, the mild-mannered boyish cricketer can look extremely intimidating. If there is a resonance, I find of myself in his batting, it is in that intent that he communicates. Sachin was a more committed individual. He was more consistent in his commitment to the team. Sachin is also the more disciplined cricketer.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Saturday described the Mumbai maestro as the greatest batsman of his generation.

First I want to congratulate him on completing 20 years in international cricket which is phenomenal. Starting at the age of 16 and going on to play for 20 years with this intensity is unbelievable.

Probably Sachin is the best batsman I have seen. He just amazes me. He just keeps going on and on. We hope he carries on some more years.

ICANN board announced Internet Domain Names in International Languages would come into effect in 2010

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that it would declare an end to the exclusive use of Latin characters-the script in which English and most other European languages are written for website addresses.

ICANN president Rod Beckstrom said the change would come into effect in the middle of 2010. Icann aims to start receiving applications next month. As of now we had control only over websites with the suffix .in. This suffix will soon be replaced with .bharat in the scheduled Indian languages

Once domain names in Indian scripts come into existence, www.google.in could be written as www.google.bharat-in Indian scripts. Indian scripts would also be enabled for suffixes such as .org and .co. Most probably the users can type out the address of a website in the scripts of any of the country’s 22 official languages.

The Icann board chairman said that when the change comes into force, it will be possible to use characters from languages such as Chinese, Arabic, Korean and Japanese as well for a full internet address. Hence internet addresses would no longer use limited generic top-level domains such as .com or .org, and instead use more flexible internationalized domain names such as .post or .bank.

These changes is very much necessary for not only half the world’s internet users today but more than half, probably, of the future users as the internet continues to spread.
