Akhanda Bharat.

Akhanda Bharat.

One of the readers of iisc life, Kiran Tikare has launched a website called Akhanda Bharat (United India).

This is what the site mentions.

True genius of India lies in dreams of its people, wellness of its people, security of its people. If any body questions us, If any body challenges us, If any body tries to divide us, we will show them, that nobody can divide us.

You are requested to check out the forum for ideas and discussions on how to improve India.

Also check out a previous post on iisc life talking about a non-profit organization named kiva, on request of one of the readers.

If you wish to see a website featured on this blog, please comment back. bhOndOO will create a separate post for it.
