 As Mangalyaan, the spacecraft of the Mars Orbiter Mission encountered the Red Planet on 24 September 2014 at 7:17 am, online accolades from various movie and music stars started flowing in through the web, celebrating the Indian Space Research Organization's grand success. Among them Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi, Lata Mangeshkar, Shahid Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Sunidhi Chauhan and Abhishek Kapoor who contributed to make hashtags #ISRO, #ProudIndian and #Mangalyaan a trend on social network Twitter.
Amitabh Bachchan rightly pointed out that the cost of the mission was less costly than that of a Hollywood film budget. India is indeed not only the first Asian country to have sent a successful mission to Mars, but its mission has been the most economical of all. Alike other Indian celebrities, NASA joyfully tweeted: "We congratulate @ISRO for its Mars arrival! @MarsOrbiter joins the missions studying the Red Planet".

BOLLYWOOD SINGERS for Women Internet Literacy

After a very long hiatus, here we are happy to bring you some fresh and useful news.
MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination), Farhan Akhtar's social campaign which had started in 2012, has joined hands this week with search engine giant Google to help increase internet literacy among women in India. The campaign is called "Reach For the Sky" and is quickly gathering visibility on Youtube and social media through a song video titled “Chulein Aasman” is a song about female emancipation and about freeing women from the roles that they have been coerced into playing for centuries. The music and video feature Salim-Sulaiman and Farhan Akhtar.
Search giant Google on Tuesday launched a new social campaign in association with Bollywood actor-director Farhan Akhtar’s initiative MARD, to increase internet literacy among women in the country. Google India had first time launched a ‘digital literacy’ initiative campaign called ‘Helping Women Get Online’ (HWGO) in collaboration with Intel, HUL and Axis Bank late last year. “The first phase has been very successful. In the last 12 months, the number of women using the internet has grown 35 per cent as against 31 per cent by men. This for the first time that women have surpassed men in using internet. This is just the start of the programme as it’s only 10 months when we  launched it (the first phase),” Google India vice president and managing director Rajan Anandan said here. As the company ramps up its activities and takes many of them to the next level, it expects further acceleration in the campaign, Anandan said. The jointly-promoted campaign called ‘ReachForTheSky’ will look to generate awareness about the need to get women online. It will also encourage existing users to help get more  women online and spread awareness of gender equality and women empowerment. Despite India inching closer to become the second  largest internet users’ country, the number of women using internet is lower than most of the countries, he said adding, “empowering the young women population with information and internet related tools could transform India’s future.” We need to build on this start and join the campaign with MARD to encourage women to come online, he added. Google India head for marketing Sandeep Menon said the company’s aim is to help bring 50 million women online in the country. - See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/google-india-launches-new-campaign-with-farhan-akhtar-to-help-women-get-online/#sthash.JVPl646b.dpuf
