They came, they saw and they were conquered........

By: Lavina Melwani

The brilliant green eyes of the Goddess Parvati are startlingly beautiful; the goddess Lakshmi, with very South American features and stylish dress, stands on a lotus, her arms extended.

A Superpower in the Making?
The rise of this growing nation will change the balance of power in Asia—and potentially the world.

With nearly 1.1 billion inhabitants, India is the second largest country on earth in population, and seventh largest in geographical area, over 1.1 million square miles. This is almost 1,000 people for every square mile of area nationwide—much denser than even China.

Since achieving independence from British rule in 1947, it has seen its share of conflict, struggle and setbacks. Although India still faces many challenges, it is now poised to reach a higher position on the world scene than at any previous time.

Brazil takes lead role in move to all-digital cinema
Using the latest technology, Brazil plans to open in May the largest network of digital movie theaters in the world.

By Andrew Downie | Correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor

RIO DE JANEIRO – The movie buffs that watched the Brazilian film "Os Normais" ("The Normal Ones") in a São Paulo cinema last October were not aware they were watching history being made. To the men and women sipping soft drinks and munching popcorn, the film - a spin-off from a popular Brazilian sitcom - did not seem that different from any other.
