New Mobile Player

The most interesting new entrant is ZTE , the Chinese telecoms equipment maker that is starting to give established western rivals, such as Nokia , a run for their money.

ZTE's success is becoming a " bit of annoyance " to Global mobile phone makers.


China is now India's largest trading partner . China's trade share is even higher than that of the United States by Rs 600 crore during April - October 2007 according to Economic Survey for 2007 - 08.

Anniversary of Sumgail Tragedy.

I attended the 20th anniversary of Sumgail Tragedy on the invitation by Rev. Fr. Oshagan Culgulian at Armenian College and Philanthropic Academy, Kolkata.
It was a very meaningful and strengthening experience. It leads us with compassion and sorrow through the suffering of those who had received from the hands of inhuman cruelty of fellow human being. It takes to a deeper level of understanding, in order that we the living may do whatever it takes to prepare ourselves to make it impossible for it to happen again.
To one and all, learning of the truth with all its horrors and sufferings is essential, for then it will have the power to unit and empower people, society and the world to be aware, awaken and to have the determination to stop reoccurrence of such inhuman acts.

Arise ! Awake !


The coming dawn of the year of the Rat brings forth the light, which indicates the brightening up the prospect for the growth of Kolkata Chinatown.
This opportunity has to be utilized by the communities living here, and those who are living in the city. The result undoubtedly will be proportionate to the effect we put in, which is from our sincere desire for growth toward our destiny.
The city authority has given us the green signal to forward our plan for a better and more effective, more Chinese, and more vibrant Chinatown. For the fore coming year, all the communities should be gathering together to work out the best possible ways of making the Territti Bazar Chinatown into a location, which will contribute the Chinese identity to the city of Kolkata.
To make this a reality, and with the knowledge of our own resources, we hereby appeal to all people of good will and well wishers to contribute with suggestions and any help possible.
Thanking you all in anticipation for your kind-heartedness and your earnest contributions
