This Indian village boy is from a rural village of India. His father [seen in the video] is a paranoid. This boy was beaten by his father one night and he locked himself in a room. He stayed in that room for three months and when he came out, He was talking fluent British-American English. Since then he has been writing several papers in Physics and has been constantly looking forward to meet the former President APJ Abdul Kalam , who happened to be a missile technology scientist.

The boy is seen possessed by some thing supernatural..bullshit
Information technology has come a long way in India. The great slowdown of 2000 was a meteorite hit for Indian IT sending ripples to entire economy. IT has stablised a lot since then.

I recently found an article by one of my good friend about Document management and a easy way to handle it. I realized its not end of the road for SME’s if they want to maintain their document archives. I thought its a good idea to expose some of the best tools available today which to a great extent match the requirements posed by SME’s.
I still remember a project at V.V Giri National labour Institute which was I think one of the biggest attempt in India to digitize old labour documents and records . The library is now in a very good shape and found here
