The India50 Project:

Celebrating in cyberspace
As part of India50, MediaWeb is also including a photo-feature section entitled The Indian Emigre- A visual journal of Indians abroad, their activities and work, stories of some winners, some losers, and a bit of history of people away from home in the last 50 years. Pablo Bartholomew, the eminent photographer, is going to have an exclusive photo-feature of his works as part of the project. Another section called Contact India is a web site that may help locate some long-lost friends and foes!
A country like India cannot be discussed without its traditions. And that is why India50 gives the country its due under a section called 'Facets of India', which will contain history, culture, politics, art, languages, people, occupations, preoccupations and, of course, snapshots of the rest of the country such that may have defied categorization under normal heads.
So while the corporate sector gets its boost outside of the country, India50 ensures that none feel left out in this year of special celebrations.

With all those channels putting in more than their two bit could the latest entrant in communications be left out? India is celebrating 50 years of freedom on the Internet as well. A NOIDA based company called MediaWeb India has decided to put the country's top corporate houses on the net. With the web site listed as http://www.india50.com/ the company will highlight the premier business houses in India and their contribution to the country's economy in the last five decades. It will go into great detail about the company profile and its standing in the market and the company philosophy.
The project will be on for a year, and MediaWeb already has some 30 companies who have agreed to be a part of India50.
