Pledge to Vote : Every vote counts

Google India has started a holistic campaign, keeping into mind the next Parliamentary Elections 2014 in India. The Campaign as such is  called as Google Politics & Elections which will act as Elections hub to study, watch, discuss, participate in digital campaign trail of various participating agencies such as Election Commission, Political Parties and Ordinary Voters.

Google India started the project with the video featuring¬†Mr. Shyam Saran Negi, – oldest voter in¬†Himachal Pradesh¬†& Independent ¬†India’s first-ever voter. Mr.¬†Negi lives in ¬†picturesque village called Kalpa, located at an altitude of 10,000 feet, in Kinnaur district¬†¬†and he wants no Indian to miss out on the coming electoral battle as he has never missed to vote since 1951.

Google India has this Link where voters can Pledge to Vote with a message and as along with the Pledge can check latest Trends of Political Parties.

We hope, India’s 81.45 crore electoral population will choose a fair and stable government who will try to increase the Tourism, spread the Incredible India brand overseas and make policies & infrastructure for the betterment of Tourism in India.

Happy Voting & Happy Travelling!

Explore the Taj Mahal with Google Maps

One of the new seven wonders of the world,¬†India‚Äôs much-admired heritage site globally¬†Taj Mahal, is now available in the format of virtual tour,¬†simply by using Street View on¬†Google Maps. ¬†For those who can‚Äôt make it to India,¬†Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and Google has provided web users the ability to explore¬†monuments like Taj Mahal, Humayun’s Tomb, Red Fort and Agra Fort on Google Maps¬†¬†in 360-degree view in their internet browser

Banned in the past due to privacy concerns, Google has now come up with 360-degree panoramic imagery of 30 monuments.¬†On premi√®ring this service,¬†union minister of culture Chandresh Kumari Katoch said¬†“Today, this partnership with Google makes it possible for billions of people across the world to see and explore our magnificent heritage, to take a walk at the Rock Cut Jain Temple, to marvel at the Nagarjuna Konda Buddhist Stupas and to relive history in Fatehpur Sikri. With the release of these new panoramic images, we aim to create a dynamic, immersive online experience by which people within India and around the world can understand and engage more of India’s diverse cultural heritage”.

Google had signed an MOU with the Ministry of Tourism, India to map 30 monuments using its ‚ÄėStreet View Trekker‚Äô technology for the first time in India.¬†As the special Google cars cannot enter into the Taj Mahal, it is instead being mapped by a backpack Trekker 75 Mega Pixel camera specially designed by Google.

Many other websites already provide virtual tours on net, like this one. 

Here’s a video bringing you through Google Maps Street View to the Taj Mahal.

Google Search – Reunion : Emotional, Subtle way to connect with People

‚ÄúPartitions divide countries, friendships find a way,‚ÄĚ says the caption below the video, which is one in a series of five videos.¬†A 3:32 film – titled¬†#Googlesearch¬†#Reunion¬†– that adds a human touch to daily routine of “Googling” – almost suggesting that there is an online world which can help to join the disconnected real world of ours.

The main message of the advertisement is to showcase how hope & with a little help from technology can bypass time & borders. In the advertisement, A grand daughter in India reunites her grand father with his Pakistan based childhood friend following six decades of separation since the partition of India. Google has emphasised the company’s contribution in making tangible effects on the million lives on daily basis.

The other four videos are:-

1. Google Search РReunion : Sugar Free

2. Google Search РReunion : Fennel

3. Google Search РReunion : Cricket

4. Google Search РReunion : Anarkali

We would like to cherish the vivid memory of Song ‘Imagine’ by¬†John Lennon:-
“You, you may say¬†
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”

Let’s pray the world shall become as One.

Happy Traveling!
