The survey, commissioned by Samsung Electronics Australia. For example, the survey says, over half 51 percent of Australians believe that traditional DVD's playback is high-definition, which it is not. Results of the Newspoll survey suggest that the government, broadcasters, manufacturers, and retailers have to make more of an effort to educate Australian consumers on HDTV.
He is nothing less than an icon and continues to hog the headlines for one reason or other.
His charisma and stellar personality have been awe inspiring. Not long ago, in the seventies, the youth identified themselves with the six-foot-tall angry young man, fighting for justice in this cruel world.
But Bachchan's personal life journey has been a mixed bag of agony and ecstasy, tragedy and triumph, all of which he embraced stoically. It was his remarkable resiliency that ensured that he was able to resurrect himself after every fall.
With his production company ABCL, he incurred huge financial loses. With age, Bachchan has matured like a fine wine. He continues to maintain the zest for life, grooming his persona with intellect and razor-sharp wit.
Even though he has won numerous accolades such as the French Legion of Honour Award and other international awards, apart from the multitude of national awards, he has no qualms about dabbling in small-time promotional advertisements.
The variety of characters Bachchan has portrayed throughout his career in films is simply mind-boggling. But success has never gone to his head. He continues to be one of the most humble and modest celebrities. Though some have called him a superstitious person, perhaps one can understand and appreciate this aspect of his personality in the context of queer happenings in his life.
It may be recalled that he has survived both physically and emotional injuries throughout the course of his life. Crises that he has overcome speaks eloquently of his resilience and fortitude, impelling his faith in the power of the supernatural.
He himself has candidly admitted to the infinite power of destiny which can make a prince a pauper in no time.
At a time when India is passing though a cultural flux, Bachchan represents the continuum of India's transition from tradition to modernity. To the people of India, he is a symbol of hope and enterprise, of perseverance and hard work.
He is truly a national treasure.
While the earlier chargesheets had covered several details on the transcripts of conversations and e-mails exchanged between David Headley and his Pakistan-based controllers from both the Lashkar-e-Tayyeba and Brigadethe plea bargain reveals some new facts.
While it was known previously that Headley had attended training in Lashkar camps in Pakistan inthe plea bargain details specifically what training was received and when.
In February Headley is said to have attended a three-week course on indoctrination on the merits of jihad. Following this he further attended another three-week course in August on handling weapons and grenades. In April we are told he attended a three-month course on close combat tactics and survival skills.
In August we are told of another three-week course on surveillance. It is interesting to note that Headley's focus on India begins around the same time as the wave of terror starting late with the Delhi blasts. While it is not until September that Headley arrived in India, it is interesting to note that surveillance of potential targets in Mumbai and other cities had started in itself.
This should be an area of focus for India if and when it gets to interrogate him. The identities of the four Lashkar operatives that Headley interacted with also remain unknown at this time. It is interesting to note that according to the plea bargain the Danish attacks were initially proposed by Lashkar member A.
Headley's overt collaboration with Ilyas Kashmiri's Brigade on the Danish attack did not start until November It is also claimed that Headley was initially unaware of the fact that Abdur Rehman's controller or sponsor for the planned Danish attacks was Ilyas Kashmiri, even though he previously knew that Abdur Rehman was working for Ilyas Kashmiri.
An insight into the dynamics between the Lashkar and the Brigade become apparent from a reported conversation from February when Ilyas Kashmiri is said to have advised Headley that Lashkar's support was not required to conduct the Danish attack.
Kashmiri's suggestion that Lashkar's services were not required at around the same time that Lashkar itself had decided to put its plans on hold, could perhaps be suggestive of something more than a mere coincidence.
While this narrative leads to believe that Brigade and Lashkar had distinct priorities, it must also be asked if the Brigade was working in tandem with Lashkar to take the heat off Lashkar.Protection of new plant varieties Trade secrets and test data protection 95 subject to certain conditions, India allowed all residents and non-residents (except citizens of Pakistan and Bangladesh) to take out Indian rupee notes up to Rs 25, when leaving the country; in the case of Nepal and Bhutan there is no limit.
