My Thoughts & Views

Archive for July 4th, 2007

Recent innovations in the world wide web(WWW) have transformed our lives, our networking with other people,our thinking and the way we market our products.

Initially Internet was used by very small number of people comprising of mainly scientists and researchers, but at present more than 1 billion people on the planet use Internet for their day to day work.

Web developments helps us to see how the social forces and information changes our life time.

People use Internet :
1. to do business(stocks, internet marketing, e-commerce,ads..)
2. to see the real time news (both multimedia as well as text)
3. to blog (which is helping in changing politics and publishing industry)
4. to Email (which is replacing the way people interact)
5. to enhance their knowledge (browsing – which helps to explore new things)
and many more…..

Internet is the main source to see the patterns in the human race and their thinking, it helps to interact with people from various places of the world…

It may be the best time(bcoz we have access to all the information at our finger tip) or the worst
time( we are madly digitizing everything which may destroy the existence of the present human race if by chance we loose every digitized records) .

I feel very happy with these movements but i think we need to analyze the things like pros and cons.

Hope you all remember the Great Buddha Statue at Bamiyan valley, central Afghanistan.They were destroyed by the Taliban with the assistance of Pakistani and Saudi engineers in 2001.

Here is the Details of Bamiyan and Buddha:

Bamyan (or Bamiyan), situated 240 kms northwest of Kabul between the snow-covered ranges of Koh-i Baba and Hindu Kush, is a small city lying in a beautiful valley containing the remarkable statues of the Buddhas of Bamiyan. The kingdom of Bamiyan was a Buddhist state positioned at a strategic location along the silk road a caravan route linking the markets of China, India and Europe.It was the site of several Buddhist and Hindu monasteries, and a thriving center for religion, philosophy, and Greco-Buddhist art.It was a Buddhist religious site from the second century up to the time of the Islamic invasion in the ninth century.

The Buddhas of Bamiyan were two monumental statues of standing Buddhas carved into the side of a cliff in the Bamiyan valley in Afghanistan. The two most prominent statues were the giant, standing Buddhas, measuring 55 and 37 meters (180 and 121 feet) high respectively.

The construction of the two statues was begun in the second century A.D. under the patronage of Emperor Kanishka and probably finished around the fifth century A.D.The height of
the Small Buddha was 38 m, that of the Large Buddha 55 m. Thefigures of the two Buddhas were decorated with gold and fine jewels. Many caves were carved in the Bamiyan’s cliffs in the same periods as the Buddhas. They were used as chapels and many monks lived there.
