Bringing the Internet to more Indians – starting with 10 million rail passengers a day

Posted by Fr Nelson MCBS on September 28, 2015

When I was a student, I relished the day-long railway journey I would make from Chennai Central station (then known as Madras Central) to IIT Kharagpur. I vividly remember the frenetic energy at the various stations along the way and marveled at the incredible scale and scope of Indian Railways.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Googleplex today

I’m very proud to announce that it’s the train stations of India that are going to help get millions of people online. In the past year, 100 million people in India started using the Internet for the first time. This means there are now more Internet users in India than in every country in the world aside from China. But what’s really astounding is the fact that there are still nearly one billion people in India who aren’t online.

We’d like to help get these next billion Indians online—so they can access the entire web, and all of its information and opportunity. And not just with any old connection—with fast broadband so they can experience the best of the web. That’s why, today, on the occasion of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to our U.S. headquarters, and in line with his Digital India initiative, we announced a new project to provide high-speed public Wi-Fi in 400 train stations across India.

Working with Indian Railways, which operates one of the world’s largest railway networks, and RailTel, which provides Internet services as RailWire via its extensive fiber network along many of these railway lines, our Access & Energy team plans to bring the first stations online in the coming months. The network will expand quickly to cover 100 of the busiest stations in India before the end of 2016, with the remaining stations following in quick succession.

Even with just the first 100 stations online, this project will make Wi-Fi available for the more than 10 million people who pass through every day. This will rank it as the largest public Wi-Fi project in India, and among the largest in the world, by number of potential users. It will also be fast—many times faster than what most people in India have access to today, allowing travelers to stream a high definition video while they’re waiting, research their destination, or download some videos, a book or a new game for the journey ahead. Best of all, the service will be free to start, with the long-term goal of making it self-sustainable to allow for expansion to more stations and other places, with RailTel and more partners, in the future.

This map shows the first 100 stations that will have high-speed Wi-Fi by the end of 2016

 We think this is an important part of making the Internet both accessible and useful for the more than 300 million Indians already online, and the nearly one billion more who are not.

But it’s not the only piece. To help more Indians get access to affordable, high-quality smartphones, which is the primary way most people there access the Internet, we launched Android One last year. To help address the challenges of limited bandwidth, we recently launched a feature that makes mobile webpages load faster and with less data, and we’ve made YouTube available offline with offline Maps coming soon.

To help make web content more useful for Indians, many of whom don’t speak English, we launched the Indian Language Internet Alliance last year to foster more local language content, and have built greater local language support into our products—including Hindi Voice Search, an improved Hindi keyboard and support for seven Indian languages with the latest versions of Android. And finally, to help all Indians reap the benefits of connectivity, we’ve been ramping up efforts to help women, who make up just a third of Internet users in India today, get the most from the web.

Just like I did years ago, thousands of young Indians walk through Chennai Central every day, eager to learn, to explore and to seek opportunity. It’s my hope that this Wi-Fi project will make all these things a little easier.

ज्यादा से ज्यादा भारतियों को इंटरनेट से जोड़ने की एक पहल – 1 करोड़ रेल यात्रियों प्रतिदिन से शुरुआत

जब मैं एक छात्र था, मैं चेन्नई सेंट्रल स्टेशन (तब मद्रास सेंट्रल के रूप में जाना जाता था) से आईआईटी खड़गपुर की दिन की रेल यात्रापसंद करता था । मुझे विभिन्न स्टेशनों पर उन्मत्त ऊर्जा की याद आज भी ताजा है और मैं भारतीय रेल के अविश्वसनीय स्तर और विस्तार पर अचम्भा करता था ।

आज गूगलप्लेक्स में प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी

मुझे यह घोषणा करते हुए बहुत गर्व हो रहा है कि ये भारत के रेलवे स्टेशन हैं जो करोड़ों लोगों को ऑनलाइन लाने में मदद करेंगे । पिछले साल, भारत में 10 करोड़ लोगों ने पहली बार इंटरनेट उपयोग शुरू किया है । इसका मतलब यह है कि भारत में अब चीन को छोड़ कर हर देश से अधिक इंटरनेट उपयोगकर्ता हैं । पर चौंकाने वाली बात ये है की भारत में अभी भी 100 करोड़ से ज़्यादा लोग ऑनलाइन नहीं हैं ।

हम इन 100 करोड़ भारतवासियों को ऑनलाइन लाने में मदद करना चाहते हैं – ताकि उन्हें पूरे वेब तक पहुँच मिल सके, और वहां मौजूद जानकारी और अवसर भी । और किसी पुराने कनेक्शन से नहीं – तेज़ ब्रॉडबैंड से ताकि वे वेब का सबसे अच्छा अनुभव कर सकें । इसलिए आज, भारत के प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेंद्र मोदी जी के हमारे U.S. मुख्यालय में उपस्थित होने के अवसर पर, और उनकी डिजिटल इंडिया पहल के अनुरूप, हमने भारत भर में 400 रेलवे स्टेशनों में सार्वजनिक उच्च गति वाई-फाई उपलब्ध कराने के लिए एक नई परियोजना की घोषणा की है ।

हमारी पहुंच और ऊर्जा टीम की, भारतीय रेलवेज, जो कि दुनिया के सबसे बड़े रेलवे नेटवर्कों में से एक चला रही है, और रेलटेल, जो व्यापक फाइबर नेटवर्क के माध्यम से रेलवायर जैसी इंटरनेट सेवाएं प्रदान करता है, के साथ काम करते हुए आने वाले महीनों में पहले स्टेशनों को ऑनलाइन लाने की योजना है। यह नेटवर्क 2016 के अंत से पहले भारत में सबसे व्यस्त स्टेशनों में से 100 को कवर करने के लिए तेजी से विस्तार करेगा, और शेष स्टेशन उसके बाद जल्द ही कवर होंगे ।

जब सिर्फ पहले 100 स्टेशन ऑनलाइन होंगे, तब भी इस परियोजना के माध्यम से हर दिन 1 करोड़ से अधिक लोगों के लिए वाई-फाई उपलब्ध होगा। यह भारत में सबसे बड़ी सार्वजनिक वाई-फाई परियोजना होगी, और संभावित उपयोगकर्ताओं की संख्या के हिसाब से दुनिया की सबसे बड़ी परियोजनाओं में गिनी जाएगी । यह वाई-फाई तेज़ भी होगा – भारत में अधिकतम लोग आज जो उपयोग करते हैं उसकी तुलना में कई गुना तेज़ । इस से यात्री जितनी देर इंतज़ार कर रहे हैं उतनी देर में एक उच्च परिभाषा वीडियो स्ट्रीम कर पाएंगे, अपने गंतव्य के बारे में कुछ अनुसंधान कर पाएंगे या कुछ वीडियो, एक पुस्तक या एक नया खेल डाउनलोड कर पाएंगे । सबसे अच्छी बात, यह सेवा शुरू में मुफ्त होगी, और भविष्य में इसे आत्मनिर्भर बनाने का दीर्घकालीन लक्ष्य है ताकि रेलटेल और अधिक भागीदारों के साथ अधिक स्टेशनों और अन्य स्थानों में इसका विस्तार किया जा सके ।

इस नक्शे में वो पहले 100 स्टेशन दर्शाये गए हैं जहाँ 2016 के अंत तक उच्च गति वाई-फाई होगा

हमें लगता है कि यह 30 करोड़ से अधिक भारतीय जो पहले से ही ऑनलाइन हैं और लगभग एक अरब से अधिक है जो नहीं हैं, उनके लिए इंटरनेट को सुलभ और उपयोगी बनाने का एक महत्वपूर्ण हिस्सा है ।

पर यह सिर्फ एक हिस्सा है । अधिक भारतीयों को सस्ती, उच्च गुणवत्ता वाले स्मार्टफोन्स प्राप्त करने के लिए, जो अधिकतम लोगों के लिए इंटरनेट का उपयोग प्राथमिक तरीका है, हमने पिछले साल एंड्राइड वन फ़ोन लांच किया था । सीमित बैंडविड्थ की चुनौतियों से निपटने में मदद करने के लिए, हम हाल ही में मोबाइल वेब पृष्ठों को तेजी से और कम डेटा के साथ लोड करने की सुविधा लाये हैं, यूट्यूब ऑफ़लाइन उपलब्ध बनाया है और ऑफलाइन मैप्स जल्द ही आने वाला है

भारतीयों, जिनमे से कई अंग्रेजी नहीं बोलते, के लिए वेब सामग्री और अधिक उपयोगी बनाने में मदद करने के लिए और अधिक स्थानीय भाषा की सामग्री को बढ़ावा देने के लिए हमने पिछले साल भारतीय भाषा इंटरनेट एलायंस की शुरूआत की है, और हमारे उत्पादों में अधिक से अधिक स्थानीय भाषा समर्थन का निर्माण किया है – हिंदी वॉयस खोज, उन्नत हिंदी कीबोर्ड और एंड्राइड के नवीनतम संस्करण में सात भारतीय भाषाओं के लिए समर्थन में सुधार । और अंत में, सभी भारतीयों को कनेक्टिविटी का लाभ लेने में मदद करने के लिए, हमने महिलाओं, जो कि आज भारत में इंटरनेट उपयोगकर्ताओं का सिर्फ एक तिहाई भाग हैं, की मदद करने में अपने प्रयास और तेज़ किये हैं ताकि वे वेब से अधिकतम लाभ उठा सकें ।

हज़ारों युवा भारतीय हर दिन चेन्नई सेंट्रल से निकलते हैं, जैसे मैं कई साल पहले निकलता था, सीखने और जानने के लिए उत्सुक, और अवसर की तलाश में । मेरी आशा है कि यह वाई-फाई परियोजना इन सब बातों को थोड़ा आसान कर देगी ।

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam passed away on Monday following sudden illness.

Mr. Kalam (84) took ill at a function in Shillong and was rushed to the hospital, M. Kharkrang, SP, Khasi Hills, said.

THOUSANDS TO ATTEND INDIAN CANONIZATIONS AT VATICAN

Posted by Fr Nelson MCBS on November 22, 2014

St Chavara Elias Kuriakose and St Euphraisa of Sacred Heart of Jesus

Bl Fr Chavara Elias Kuriakose and Bl Sr Euphraisa of Sacred Heart of Jesus to be canonized November 23

At least 4,000 Indians are expected at the Vatican this weekend to see Pope Francis officially declare two Indians — a mystic nun and a social reformer priest — as saints.

Blessed Father Chavara Elias Kuriakose (1805-1871) and Blessed Sister Euphraisa of Sacred Heart of Jesus (1877-1952), both from the Syro-Malabar Church based in southern Kerala state, are set be canonized on November 23.

The canonizations come six years after the canonization of India’s first woman saint, Sister Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception, said Cardinal George Alenecherry, the Major Archbishop of Syro-Malabar Church.

Both the future saints are credited with spearheading a better spiritual and social awareness that have become the foundations of present-day Catholic life in Kerala, the cardinal told ucanews.com.

“We expect some 4,000 people from India at the Vatican. Also, hundreds of our priests and nuns working in Europe and other parts of Asia should be attending it,” said Father Robin Kannanchira, public relations officer for the congregation Blessed Chavara founded — the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI).

Social thinkers and historians say Blessed Chavara was a leading social reformer in 19th century Kerala, which was beset with social ills such as the caste system, discrimination and pervasive superstition.

Blessed Chavara was instrumental in establishing modern secular education along with parish churches to provide education to all people irrespective of caste and religion, said KS Radhakrishnan, former vice chancellor of Kerala’s Sanskrit University.

The priest established a Sanskrit school in 1846, when Sanskrit was considered the language of affluent classes and learning it was reserved only for upper-caste people.

“Sanskrit at that time was not a language alone, it was the abode of wealth, power, position and fame in society,” Radhakrishnan said.

By opening his Sanskrit school to all, “this visionary … was pioneering a revolution, making low caste people enjoy wealth, power and position”, he said.

In 1829 he established the CMI, the first indigenous religious institute for men in the Kerala Church, becoming its first prior-general.

Almost four decades later, in 1866, along with Carmelite missionary Leopold Beccaro, Blessed Chavara began the first Carmelite convent, the first indigenous order for women in the Syro Malabar Church, today known as the Congregation of Mother Carmel.

Sister Euphrasia, the nun who will be canonized with him at the weekend, is one of the congregation’s pioneers, according to Sister Sancta Kolath, the order’s present superior-general.

“She was not known for building up anything or social reform. She led an intense life of prayer. She was known as the ‘praying mother’,” said Sister Kolath who also described her as a “mystic”.

During her lifetime “people flocked to her, seeking … counseling and inspiration, and that was her way of helping people,” she said.

Soon after her death people began to pray at her tomb and many claim to have received favors through her. Her saintly nature was accepted as a fact even during her lifetime.

Her inspiration helps the congregation engage in the fields of education, social work and healing across India and Europe, Sister Kolath said.

മാര്‍പാപ്പയുടെ നിലപാടിന്റെ പേരില്‍ വിവാദത്തിന്‍ അടിസ്ഥാനമില്ല: മാര്‍ പവ്വത്തില്‍

Posted by Fr Nelson MCBS on November 1, 2014

Mar Powathil

ചങ്ങനാശ്ശേരി: മഹാവിസ്ഫോടനം  സത്യമാകാമെന്ന ഫ്രാന്‍സിസ് മാര്‍പാപ്പയുടെ ിലപാടിന്റെ പേരില്‍ മതവിശ്വാസം സത്യമല്ലെന്നു സ്ഥാപിക്കാന്‍ ശ്രമം നടക്കുകയാണെന്ന് ആര്‍ച്ച്ബിഷപ് മാര്‍ ജോസഫ് പവ്വത്തില്‍.

കാത്തലിക് ടീച്ചേഴ്സ് ഗില്‍ഡ് ചങ്ങനാശ്ശേരി മേഖലയുടെ ആഭിമുഖ്യത്തില്‍ സംഘടിപ്പിച്ച അധ്യാപക കണ്‍വന്‍ഷന്‍ സെന്റ് ജോസഫ്സ് ഗേള്‍സ് ഹയര്‍സെക്കന്‍ഡറി സ്കൂള്‍ ഓഡിറ്റോറിയത്തില്‍ ഉദ്ഘാടനം  ചെയ്തു പ്രസംഗിക്കുകയായിരുന്നു അദ്ദേഹം.

മാര്‍പാപ്പയുടെ നിലപാടിന്റെ പേരില്‍ വിവാദത്തിന്‍ അടിസ്ഥാനമില്ല. പരിണാമ സിദ്ധാന്തത്തെ സഭ തളളിപ്പറഞ്ഞിട്ടില്ല. ഇതു പുതിയ കാര്യമല്ല. എന്നാല്‍ ഒന്നും ആകസ്മികമായി സംഭവിക്കുന്നതല്ല. എല്ലാറ്റിന്റെയും പിന്നില്‍ ദൈവത്തിന്റെ കൃത്യമായ ഇടപെടലുകളുണ്െടന്നും മാര്‍ പവ്വത്തില്‍ കൂട്ടിച്ചേര്‍ത്തു.

പുതിയ തലമുറയില്‍ ദൈവവിശ്വാസം കുറഞ്ഞു വരികയാണ്. ഭൌതിക കാര്യങ്ങളിലാണ് സമൂഹം ഊന്നല്‍ നല്‍കുന്നത്. കേരളത്തില്‍ പ്രത്യയശാസ്ത്രങ്ങള്‍ കൂടുതല്‍ ശക്തമാണ്. അതിനാല്‍ പുതിയ തലമുറയില്‍ വിശ്വാസദാര്‍ഢ്യം ഉറപ്പിക്കാന്‍ അധ്യാപകരും മാതാപിതാക്കളും ജാഗ്രത പുലര്‍ത്തണം. മാധ്യമങ്ങളുടെ ശരിയായ രീതിയിലുളള ഉപയോഗത്തിന്  ബോധനം  നല്‍കണമെന്നും ആര്‍ച്ച്ബിഷപ് ഉദ്ബോധിപ്പിച്ചു.

മാതാപിതാക്കള്‍ക്കു മക്കളെ ശ്രദ്ധിക്കാന്‍ സമയം കിട്ടാതെ വരുന്ന കാലഘട്ടത്തില്‍ വിദ്യാര്‍ഥികളുടെ കാര്യത്തില്‍ അധ്യാപകര്‍ കൂടുതല്‍ ശ്രദ്ധചെലുത്തണം. സ്കൂളുകളുടെ ഗുണനിലവാരം ഉറപ്പ് വരുത്തണമെന്നും മാര്‍ പവ്വത്തില്‍ ചൂണ്ടിക്കാട്ടി. സ്കൂള്‍ മാനേജര്‍ സിസ്റര്‍ ഫ്ളവര്‍ലെറ്റ് അധ്യക്ഷത വഹിച്ചു.

കോര്‍പറേറ്റ് മാനേജര്‍ ഫാ.മാത്യു നടമുഖത്ത്, അസിസ്റന്റ് കോര്‍പറേറ്റ് മാനേജര്‍ഫാ.മാത്യു വാരുവേലില്‍, ഫാ.ജിജോ കപ്പാമൂട്ടില്‍, ഗില്‍ഡ് പ്രസിഡന്റ്് ജോസഫ് കെ. നെല്ലുവേലി, സിസ്റര്‍ ക്ളാരിസ്, സിസ്റര്‍ ക്രിസ്റി, റെജിമോള്‍ സി.തോമസ്, തോമസ് ജേക്കബ്, ബീ സെബാസ്റ്യന്‍ എന്നിവര്‍ പ്രസംഗിച്ചു. ഫാ. ടിജോ പതാലില്‍, സിസ്റര്‍ സോഫി റോസ് എന്നിവര്‍ ക്ളാസുകള്‍ നയിച്ചു.

വചനം തിരുവചനം

ദൈവത്തിന്റെ വചനം സജീവവും ഊര്ജസ്വലവും ആണ് ;ഇരുതലവാളിനെക്കാള്‍ മൂര്‍ച്ച ഏറിയതും ,ചേതനയിലും ആത്മാവിലും സന്ധിബന്ധങ്ങളിലും മജ്ജയിലും തുളച്ചു കയറി ഹൃദയത്തിന്റെ വിചാരങ്ങളെയും നിയോഗങ്ങള്‍ വിവേചിക്കുന്നതുമാണ്
