I versus I - India and Internet

Internet has changed almost everything on earth. According to juxtconsult, India has 50 million(50,000,000) internet users, out of which 25 million use internet everyday . Just think of this as the ultimate source to market a product/service online.... I mean enormous amounts of hits can be achieved if your product/service just grabs the eyeballs of all those 25 million internet users in INDIA alone, imagine about other countries!:o.

Indian population is 1 billion(1,000,000,000,000)+ and there are 50,000,000(50 million) internet users! If my math is correct(it rarely is :P), then 5% of Indian population use internet. What about the remaining percentage i.e 95%.. What are they doing??? ........ This got me thinking on how India needs change to become ready for global competition.

While pondering about it a few weeks ago, I was discussing about 'the internet' with my mom :-) who is a legal adviser, I explained to her about the internet and the websites where you can learn whatever you want in just a 'click' and about Blogs where you can write your own thoughts......and she was amazed and inspired........with no further doubt, she started to blog, and showcased her thoughts and ideas to the whole world, and she has written totally 6 posts in 10 days! All are worth reading, They talk about Human Rights and legal awareness for the general public.Everyone in India must read and know about their Legal rights! She blogs about 4 hours daily, navigates the web to find interesting articles, and improves her knowledge and thinking pattern!..... You can chance upon other adventures if you go on browsing.......This is her blog-> LEGAL CRYSTAL feel free to add a comment or ask any questions.

Finally, The reason why I am talking about my mom's blog is :D ....... Each one of you out there, should start blogging and those who already have blogs, please help/inspire other people to blog and let them know the power of human spirit and thoughts.... because blogs spread the 'INTERNET MANTRA' and in a small/big way we can change the world. So basically "If you start blogging, a lot of amazing things happen, which in turn enhance your life."

* This is my first step in spreading awareness to the ignorant 95% , about the internet and I hope to see more people utilizing its power and reach!

Well I agree blogging is a wonderful way to create and spread awareness as your blog does :-)
Your mother is doing a great job as well..
Each one having one blog would be great..Expecting my blog someday

PS: Kudos...no mathematical error!! But 5 millions indeed is a very small fraction of Indian Population :(

VERY GOOD RESEARCH BY YOU. YOUR APPLICATION MATTERS ALL IN THE FUTURE. I THINK YOU ARE STILL A STUDENT. THERE IS A GREAT DAY ONCE YOU COMPLETE YOUR DEGREE (IF YOU ARE NOT YET) OR A GOOD CAREER IF YOU WISH TO STEP OUT FOR SOME ASSIGNMENT.
IT WILL BE STILL GREAT IF YOU WISH TO ACHIEVE SOMETHING FROM THE SCRATCH LEVEL WITHOUT ANYBODY'S HELP. HENCE, YOU SHOULD MAKE SOME BASIC EARNING SOURCE FOR YOUR GREAT TOMORROW. BEST OF LUCK.

I found this highlighted diplomatic stmt...

"If you start blogging, a lot of amazing things happen which blossoms your life ."

Elaborate on this pls, if u 'll !!

@my-world(gracy) -
Technically speaking - if you look at non-bloggers they can't reach people as good as a blogger "on INTERNET". Its my personal experience that when you put forth your thoughts to the world, Your thoughts expand, thinking pattern changes and you can be more dynamic and versatile in your approach, that's the reason i said
"If you start blogging, a lot of amazing things happen which blossoms your life ."

i HOPE it justifies the so called 'diplomatic statement!' sorry its 'higlighted diplomatic statement' :P

Thank you so much for your comments :-)

My world said...

u don't have to b sry for dat!
:D :P
gud elaboration....
I thot u myt have more to add on it dan this...

Blogs allow people to interact and make friends and much more...

Bloggers are people with attitude. They say there’s a book inside everybody. Well, the Web and blogs have let the book out! There has literally been an explosion of opinion. Traditionally, public relations was about honing a silvery message that communicated exactly what the organization wanted us to hear. Now, we can hear all sorts of voices on the subject. It’s true democracy at work.
