Google India Pakistan TV Commercial – The Most Emotional TV Commercial from Google

Google Pakistan India TV Commercial

Google India released a commercial titled ‘Google Commercial: Pakistan India Reunion’ relating a tear-jerking story of how the tech giant’s search functions helped two childhood friends, separated due to the Partition of Pakistan India border, are reunited.

The three-and-a-half minute commercial starts with Suman, a young girl in India, listening to her grandfather narrate his memories of Yousuf, his childhood friend he had shared memorable times with, in Lahore.
“Partitions divide countries, friendships find a way,” says the caption below the video, which is one in a series of five videos.
With watery eyes, he explains how the Partition split the two pals apart, with Yousuf staying in Pakistan as his friend crossed into India.
Distraught over the tale narrated by her grandfather, Suman takes a chance and runs a random search on Google.

Suman ‘googles’ the trivia from her grandfather’s story to connect the dots and with just a few keystrokes, pinpoint the current whereabouts of Yousuf in Lahore.
‘An old gate’ and ‘jhajariya’ are all it takes Google to take Suman (girl) to Yousuf (boy) and his grandson Ali, an admittedly miraculous feat by the standards of only one generation ago.
The advertisement is currently going viral and owes its spiraling views to the overwhelming emotional appeal, grossing upwards of 100,000 views and innumerable facebook posts and tweets.
But it is also helping Google reemphasise the importance it assigns to the company’s contribution toward connecting humanity and making actual, tangible effects on lives.

That was one of core elements emphasised in this summer’s Hollywood film “The Internship“, which was in fact derided by many critics as a “two-hour long Google commercial”.

Another aspect tying the movie with the commercial is the tech giant’s attempt to shed the association with a certain age group. While ‘The Internship’ portrayed that even two middle-aged outmoded salesmen could create a space for themselves at the company, ‘Reunion’ portrays Google’s service to an age-group two generations older than Suman and Ali.

Indian Premier League Begin Today

Posted on 08 April 2011 by PakBee - Total hits: 2,707

NEW DELHI: The Indian Premier League cricket bandwagon rolls into action today with organisers hoping India’s World Cup victory last weekend will help the competition regain some of its lost sparkle.

This year’s edition — spread over 51 days and comprising 74 matches across 13 venues — will be the first after the ousting of its outspoken founder Lalit Modi, who was forced out last year under a cloud of corruption allegations.

The tournament’s future had looked in doubt amid claims of corruption, money-laundering and tax evasion, as well as secret deals to hide teams’ real owners and even links to India’s criminal underworld.

But a massive PR exercise by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has ensured the IPL has kept its date with fans, as well as sponsors and advertisers hungry for their share of the huge commercial pie.

IPL chief executive Sundar Raman dismissed fears that cricket fans in India, still recovering from celebrations after Saturday’s victory over Sri Lanka in the World Cup final, could suffer sporting overload.

“The success of the Indian team in the World Cup has made it (IPL) more interesting,” Raman told AFP, saying the tournament would “carry on from where the World Cup ended”.

“Fans are already into cricket and celebrating India’s victory. We are confident of building on the success of the last edition.”

This year’s IPL, the fourth time it has been held, will have two new teams in Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Pune Warriors, taking the total number of franchises to 10.

The opening game will feature Chennai Super Kings, led by victorious Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and the Kolkata Knight Riders, owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

The IPL revolutionised the sport when it burst onto the scene in 2008 with a high-octane blend of international star players, scantily-clad cheerleaders and Bollywood glamour.

Using the short Twenty20 form of the game, IPL matches are usually three-hour events packed with music, delirious crowds and countless television advertisements.

Everything from the time-out to the drinks break is sponsored by companies, earning Indian cricket authorities millions in revenue.

The fourth edition is likely to see IPL bosses reduce the decadent post-match parties, which were blamed by some for India’s failure in the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean last year.

The much-discussed cheerleader jobs — all taken by Western women in previous editions — might be given to locals who will don traditional Indian outfits in place of barely-there miniskirts, local media reports say.

In response to ICA’s (Indian Cyber Army) attack on 40 Pakistan’s government websites earlier this week, Pakistani hackers have retaliated by defacing some 270 Indian websites in a single go including Indian CBI (Central bureau of investigation) website.

In an email sent to ProPakistani, PCA or Pakistan Cyber Army claimed that they have defaced Indian CBI’s website. PCA said that this was a planned defacement in response to ICA’s attempt.

PCA left a message on CBI’s website as following:

This attempt is in response to the Pakistani websites hacked by ‘Indian Cyber Army’. We told you before too.. we are sleeping but not dead.. remember PCA (Pakistan cyber army)!..back off kids or we will smoke your d00rs off like we did before..

A message by Pakistan Cyber Army
Pakistan Zindabad!

In another effort, HEX786, a Pakistani hacker, has posted a message on his website announcing the defacement of 270 Indian websites.

HEX786 didn’t deface those websites, instead inserted a html file named as HEX786.html in root directory of mentioned websites, exactly the way ICA did to Pakistani websites.

HEX786 warned Indian hackers to not to initiate the cyber war. He writes:

Indians No0bs Hackers We Are Warning You, Stop this Cyber War You have Started Against Pakistan. Don’t think that You’re far Away from Us. We Will Make Your Internet Hell, See How We will Defeat You in Cyber War You’ll Never Ever Forget.

Complete list of hacked websites is given here

It merits mentioning here that senior hackers on both side of borders are advising their communities to not to engage themselves in such activities.
