Can You survive on $1.25 per day – 1.4 Billion People do

Extreme poverty is defined by the World Bank as living on less than USD$1.25 a day. For those living in extreme poverty this needs to cover everything — food, health care, housing, education. This is the kind of poverty that leads to children dying for lack of a basic immunization or access to clean drinking water. This level of poverty is unjust and unnecessary. Extreme poverty is the greatest injustice facing our time. A world that sees over one billion surviving on less than USD$1.25 a day, deprived of their basic rights and opportunities, is unjust and unacceptable.

The last two decades have been the most successful in history in the fight against poverty: the share of people living in extreme poverty has been cut in half worldwide, from 43% in 1990 to under 20% today. However, it is unacceptable that more than one billion people still live in extreme poverty. Ending extreme poverty in our lifetimes is a difficult but achievable goal. Now is the time to take action!

#ModiHangout – A short Twitter analysis

Gujarat CM Narendra  Modi became the third political leader in the world to do a Google+ Hangout. It was a well managed event with building up of adequate buzz by taking questions from public at large. The event was anchored by Ajay Devgan which added the needed blitz to the event. Mr. Narendra Modi a star in his own right doesn’t need a cine star to pep up a show. However Ajay helped in keeping the flow of the hangout. Many local TV channels got into the fray by live telecasting the hangout video right from their computers with all the pauses when the video was being buffered by the computer. Who said that what happens in the internet will remain only in the cyber space.

The tweets started pouring in and the official stats have been released in Narendra Modi’s website.
