Just came across this article in Yahoo News > >here > http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060817/tc_nm/life_india_village_dc which says >> “Indian village uploads itself onto Internet”.
Well, this sounds very much like 1999, when these kinda news were for larger cities. The difference here for this village is, well, it hardly has much to go by, in terms of infrastructure, etc. The village name is Hansdehar in Haryana & the website is www.smartvillages.org
Now, since this news post is in Yahoo News, it would get lottsa coverage for sure, however, I am very anxious to find out, say 6 months from now, or a year later, as to how much has this really benefited the people of Hansdehar. Lets hope for the best.
