12 are to be nominated by President of India and shall consist of persons having special knowledge or practical experience in respect of such matters as the following, namely literature, science, art and social service.
There is a section of Rajya Sabha seats that are reserved for people who excel in certain areas. These are always direct nominations and most such folks are non-political (historically).
As for Tendulkar, this is a good career move in my opinion. His cricket hasn’t been much to speak of recently, and it’s inevitable that he retires within a year or two. A move into politics would be something he’d probably be keen on.
12 nominations??may be they must have watched "12 angry men" . And as far as sachin, i really wish he doesnt involve in to politics . he has such a great name among indians i doubt whether that may get spoiled after his entry in to politics .
I came across windows phone some days back and started loving it. But It us in-fact my brothers phone so I am not using it full time. I have decided to buy a windows phone and throw my android asap.
Till I but a new phone, I thought why not experiment with android. I found few apps which will give SOME windows phone like user experience on android phones. SO i thought i will share it.
DECLAIMER: THESE ARE IN NO WAY REPLACEMENT FOR WINDOWS PHONE 7. THE REAL WINDOWS PHONE IS FAR BETTER. but we can have some usability experience with these.
launcher 7 - Total customization of home screen. and the application comes with tons of options to play woth
WP7 Notifications - get notification in WP7 style
Lock Screen 7 - Windows phone like lock screen but without the bounce effect
WP7Contact Lite - Contacts look SOMEWHAT like WP7
Messaging Metro Beta - messaginglook SOMEWHAT like WP7
Photo Safari - gallery look SOMEWHAT like WP7
InstaMusic - music player SOMEWHAT like Zune.
very well said pramod, thats what i meant too whats the use in searching google and posting it as answer .Even if we dont do it and try to be honest, someone will do it and will be tagged as awinner and that quiz ends rather we can name the quiz as "search first ,win first" which would be more apt
