DataWind announced its collaboration with Vismaad Inc., the leading developer of educational and animated Punjabi content, to launch the first ever Punjabi education Tablet, Vidya-Tab Punjabi in India.

To help preserve and grow the adoption of this rich and beautiful language, today we've launched the first ever Punjabi education Tablet - VidyaTab-Punjabi at a price of Rs.3, 999," said Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO, DataWind Inc.

VidyaTab-Punjabi has over 100 learning features that teach Punjabi language and Gurumukhi script, as well as all other educational quotients that enhance the knowledge base of students. Apps are high on entertainment quotient with attractive custom graphics and authentic Punjabi voice - overs for proven highly effective vicarious learning.

The application, developed by Vismaad, includes: form and diction of Punjabi alphabets, word formation, Gurumukhi vowel signs, sentence-making, improving Punjabi vocabulary and basic Punjabi grammar besides other uses.

"Datawind, with its affordable tablets and bundled free-internet browsing was our natural choice of partner as we looked to extend the reach of our apps. With Datawind's consistent position as the largest supplier in India, no other tablet manufacturer has the breadth of product range or customer reach. We're excited by this partnership to bring Punjabi learning into every home," said Sukhwinder Singh, CEO of Vismaad Inc.

The Tablet has an array of features like educational videos based on history, folk stories and contemporary issues in classical cartoon animations. The tab also includes role play and interactive games in Punjabi language.

    • Exactly. In this topsy turvy world people love a victim, especially if the "aggressor" is the Goliath compared to the smaller David in relative terms. 
    • If they aren't physically committing beadbi of Guru Sahib or attacking their Sikhs, we should leave them alone. Ram Raiyas, Hindaliahs, Dhir Malias, our own Guru Sahibaan were beset by heresies and schisms from almost the beginning of Sikhi, but the only course of action they ever took against these groups was to prohibit their Sikhs from associating with them.  Sikhs should understand better than anyone that persecuting a group only ever serves to strengthen it in the long run. Interfering with dera followers in the Punjab will only serve to make them more committed to their dehdari gurus. 
    • Hi paji, have you been tested for any health condition?  What methods did they give you help? Have you had CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy).  If not, ask for it. Mool mantar is good, it's helped me too with it.  Do you do any relaxation exercises? Have you tried the Jacobson's Muscle relaxation? I'll put a link on for you.  The voices and noises you hear, I'm sorry I'm not qualified to advise on that. When are you hearing these noises? But you need to go back to your doctor.  Are you in any stressful situation? The doctors should have asked you all this.   You need to see a specialist and that's through your doctor. The thing is we can't diagnose what the cause is, only the professionals can. But you've mentioned you stay inside all day. That's not healthy for you, you need fresh air, oxygen. Do you study? What do you do all day?  Are you eating properly? Have you had your blood tests done? Is anything deficient?  Also, something that may help you with the anxiety side is Sarab Rog Ka Aukhad Naam. It helped me, try the shabads and do your Ardas to Waheguru to help you. If you can attend a camp. I'm putting on their website too, so you can see their updates or if there's any camps near you.  https://www.sarbrogkaaukhadnaam.co.uk/  
    • What is the benefit in a title, if it doesn't improve you? If you ask whether your Sikh or not, the answer is whether you are trying to follow Sikhi or not, (I'm not talking about Kesh, meat, or drinking), but whether you learn from what Guru Sahib has actually said.
    • Guru Sahib doesn't have caste,(he is the light of Vaheguru), but if you are talking about the physical body of the Gurus, then none of the Gurus historically that had married, married outside of the Ksychatria varna. But despite that I really would like you to read what was said in a previous topic, to understand that the Anand Karajs were not caste-based, but rather based on the system of Gurmat, (Guru Sahib didn't just marry any Ksychatrias, but rather spiritually elite beings).
