The recent release of Forbes Top 40 India's Richest show our very own Karsanbhai Patel from Ahmedabad and it's a pride to see my own community person, from my own homeland who stand 38th on the list amongst the Rich Indians from London, Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune.

Last year 2004, I guess we had Mr. Pankaj Patel of Zydus Cadilla but this year marks the celebration for the Ahmedabadis to see India's detergent king Karsanbhai on top with a whooping net worth $640 million!!Forbes reports, Pankaj Patel and Lupin guy dropped off because their stocks underperformed India's red-hot stock market.

The surprise comes in list as Anurag Dikshit and Vikrant Bhargava, executives at Internet casino outfit/PartyGaming who rank among the Rich Indians!

The Forbes Asia's second annual list of the 40 richest Indians is quite a bit more exclusive this year, indeed!

Well, here me blogging after gap of time and time is such that when it drifts you away socialising and partying, its never a come back to web from real world unless and until you force your brain cells to be back to action. Moreover, I been exploring and designing the set up of my recent War Blog - The Iran Iraq War, President Bush n Saddam Hussein, President Musharraf, India-Pakistan and Kashmir.....whew, that's all about terrorism .....God grant Peace!

Now, the scoop of news is Hondo. Did you know that Honda Civic Sedan won the best in class economy, sports/performance car Award recently in Canada? Well, leave that apart. Here is an interesting debut of Asimo - Yeah, you got it right. The Robot who's gonna now serve you as a Receptionist with a tray of coffee mugs and even pushing a serving cart with drink glasses!

Unbelievable and indeed Interesting. At a recent press conference, Asimo greeted passer by, walked hand in hand and turned around with its quick pace and showed its skills of receiving and deliving a tray.

Much more but amazing is that ASIMO, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, presented His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Makhtoum, the son of the Crowne Prince of Dubai, with a golden pair of scissors to cut the ribbon and officially announce the 8th International Middle East Motor Show open. Asimo will be entertaining visitors with performance for 5 days.

Hmmm....The robotic features of recognition of moving objects, Posture/gesture recognition,Environment recognition, Sound recognition,Face recognition and what not!!! Artificial Intelligence! That's new waves of technology!
