Support of Mark Zuckerberg for DIGITAL INDIA

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg changed his profile picture to rally support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ initiative. His DP reflected shades of the tri-colours of the Indian flag.
“I changed my profile picture to support Digital India, the Indian government’s effort to connect rural communities to the internet and give people access to more services online. Looking forward to discussing this with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Facebook today,” Zuckerberg wrote on the social networking site.
The move came just hours ahead of a much-anticipated Townhall session where PM Modi, in the company of Zuckerberg and other top company executives, answered questions from Facebook users from across the world. The interaction took place at the company headquarters in Menlo Park in California.
PM Modi became the second leader after US President Barack Obama to hold town hall interaction at the Facebook headquarters. The event was webcast live on the Facebook profiles of both PM Modi and Zuckerberg.
India has the largest Facebook user base outside the US. In June, the company had said that 125 million users of its global base of 1.44 billion come from India.

PM Modi selling Digital India in Silicon Valley is one thing, walking the talk in real India is another

Unlike Rahul Gandhi who trots out the now well-worn suit-boot jibe at every occasion, Narendra Modi’s speeches are tailor-made for his audience. His triumphal tour of Silicon Valley was no exception as he charmed the titans of technology by speaking their lingo. There’s nothing that tech whiz kids like better than technological silver bullets for seemingly intractable social problems, attacking poverty, as the Indian prime minister said, by the power of networks and mobile phones. If an American president once promised a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage, Narendra Modi served up a digital version of that promise – JAM for all, Jan Dhan bank account, Aadhaar cards and Mobile governance.
Free wi-fi at 500 railway stations. 600,000 villages linked by optical fibre network. What was not to love, or at least Facebook-like, about this vision of the future even though it does not mean women’s rights are ensured or that healthcare is truly accessible. And Modi, a master of social media, was clearly in his element laying out a no-call-drop picture of the other India –where Maharashtra farmers have WhatsApp groups and the existential choice is about iOs or Android. No wonder Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg said “I changed my profile picture to support Digital India, the Indian government’s effort to connect rural communities to the Internet and give people access to more services online.”

“Good teacher explain....
 Superior  teacher demonstrates.. 
 Great teachers inspire.”

 “Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their joyfully collapse, crossing, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.” 

 “A good teacher is similar to a candle that consumes itself to light up others paths”. 

  “The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer.”   

 “in teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. it is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.”   

 “What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.”  

 “One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings."
