This page is a Weblog of the Google Maps Mashups I have created and other interesting mashups I have found on the web

On this special occasion, must make a mention of DR. Rajendra Prasad. In July 1946, when the Constituent Assembly was established to frame the Constitution of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad was elected its President. Two and a half years after independence, on January 26, 1950, the Constitution of independent India was ratified and Dr. Rajendra Prasad was elected the nation’s first President. Devout and deeply religious, he was an embodiment of the best values in Indian Culture. Dr. Rajendra Prasad was born in Zeradei, Bihar on December 3, 1884. You can check the location of his birth place on Google Maps at http://www.mibazaar.com/celeb.html

On 1/23 Google released their enhanced satellite imagery to Google Earth/Local. So I decided to take a look at the city I grew up in – Bombay (now Mumbai). Here are some incredible images from Google Local:

Additionally, I have removed Bollywood Movies listing from my site, due to my inablity to get show timings/upcoming release info in a timely manner. Instead I will be posting movie reviews of latest bollywood movies
