Sheila Dikshit:
Sheher voh, jo ghar ban jaye,
Ajnabi bhi dost ban jaye,
Sheher voh jo rishta ban jaye
Mera ghar, mera pataa, meri shaan,
Dilli… meri jaan..

Ye sheher meri jaan, iska naam hai meri pehchaan,
Meri saanson mein basaa, iss hava ka nashaa,

Kehti koi kahaani, ye galiyaan ye bastiyaan,
Raahon ko sajaaye pedhon ki daaliyaan,

Bhagta phir raha har insaan yahaan,
Dil mein hai basaaye jeene ka armaan,
Sabka sahaara, sheher hamara,
Mera dil, mera pataa, meri shaan,

Lyrics

Oh yaaron, yeh India bulaa liya
Diwaano yeh India bulaa liya… bulaa liya

Yeh toh khel hai
Bada mail hai
Milaa diya… milaa diya

Yeh toh khel hai
Bada mail hai
Milaa diya

Oh rukna rukna rukna rukna rukna nahi
Haarna haarna haarna haarna haarna nahi
Junoon se kanoon se maidaan maar lo

Let’s go

Play o jiyo heyo let’s go

Oh yaaron, yeh India bulaa liya
Diwaano yeh India bulaa liya… bulaa liya

Parvat sa ucha uthoon toh yeh
Duniya salami de

Sardil iraade na ho jayein kahin
Dil ko woh suraj de

Jiyo utho badho jeeto
Tera mera jahaan let’s go

Kaisi saji hai saji hai dekho maati apni
Bani rashke jahaan yaara ho
Kai rang hai boli hai kai desh hai magar
yahi jag hai samaaya saara ho

Laagi re ab laagi re lagan
Jaagi re mann jeet ki agan
Uthi re ab iraadon mein tapan
Chali re gori chali ban than

Change Payee Name in Adsense

How to Change Payee Name in Adsense without Closing your Account ?

Changing a payee name in Google Adsense account is a daunting task if you are located in countries “China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Palestinian Territory, or Thailand”.

The only one way to do it is, closing your current account and create a new one. The process can take about a week or two. That means during the process, your earnings will suddenly drop to ZERO, which i can’t afford. So contacted to Google Adsense support and regarding the process of updating payee name without closing my account and they replied in my favor.

they replied,

The only way to change the payee name without closing your account and opening a new one would be to send via email a scanned copy of government-issued IDs for yourself and your father. As long as the valid IDs contain information clearly identifying yourself, your father, and your current address, I can make the change.

Otherwise, you will have to change accounts. To expedite the process, your son should apply for an account while yours is still open. If it is disapproved as a duplicate, we can manually open the account after your account is closed.

Please let me know which method will work better for you.

I then scanned and emailed my my “Driving License” which is issued by Government of India.

they replied,

Thank you for the quick reply. I’ve gone ahead and updated your payee name to “NEW PAYEE.” Please note that our system automatically placed a Tax Information hold on your account, and that you will have to re-select your payment method before you can be paid.

Whew!
Finally the name was updated to my name from my father’s name.
Thanks to Google Adsense Support.

IPv6 Address in India

IPv6 India

The Government has released the roadmap for Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) deployment in the country in a time bound manner. It has also decided to form an IPv6 Task Force in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode for timely implementation of IPv6 in the country. This was disclosed by the Minister of Communications & Information Technology Thiru A.Raja here yesterday while releasing the National IPv6 Deployment Roadmap. IPv4, the initial version of address platform is already overburdened in India with 18.4 million registered addresses and is expected to exhaust the available space globally by March 2012. This initiative of the Government has come at most appropriate time when a concerted effort is needed on part of all stakeholders to migrate to a higher platform i.e. IPv6, he said.

Stating that IPv6 deployment in India has so far been mostly a Government led initiative, the Minister invited all the stakeholders to come forward and to make the activities of this task force a success. The Minister said that this roadmap and the formation of the IPv6 Task Force together would enable citizens to start using IPv6 services by March 2012. For this all Telecom and Internet Service providers are required to become IPv6 compliant by December-2011 and offer IPv6 services thereafter.

IPv6 Tutorial

The important issue of transition from IPv4 to IPv6 in the country has emerged has a critical concern for quite some time in view of the increasing demand for IP addresses and global scarcity of free space on IPv4 platform. Fast exhausting of IPv4 address space, growing demand for new addresses globally and expanding communication networks have necessitated timely action and implementation of new strategies to address the issue. IPv6 has 128 bits as compared to the limited addressing space of only 32 bits in IPv4. The Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC), the technical arm of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has brought out this National IPv6 Deployment Roadmap for implementation by all Telecom and Internet Service Providers, Central and State Government Departments, industry associations, educational institutes, equipment manufacturers and all other stakeholders after conducting various workshops through out the country in last one year.

The Internet Protocol is slowly emerging as a global standard for communication. The current Internet protocol IPv4 served well in last 25 years but it has practical limitations.

IPv6 Addressing

IPv6 is the next generation Internet Protocol with improvement over the initial version of IPv4. It is a scalable Internet technology with a potential to help the Internet reach 1.1 billion people of India. USA, EU, Japan and other countries are deploying IPv6 today, role of IPv6 is not limited to Internet access alone but it is important in Defence, e-Governance and other crucial government projects. IP security in IPv6 provides end-to-end security implying that data is secured from the originating workstation through various routers of the Internet to the destined workstation.
