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.

"Alarming studies have predicted the extinction of the Punjabi language in the next few decades. 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.

A section has also been allocated to Punjabi rhymes and simple songs, which have been a great hit on social media. These rhymes help pre-school kids and beginners on Punjabi learning, understand basic concepts of Punjabi alphabets and counting, daily chores, rich cultural ethos and idioms.

With a capacity of 512MB RAM and 4GB flash memory, the tablet offers features like Wi-fi Hotspot, Wi-fi Direct, Bluetooth, GPS among others.

    •   Lord, make me an instrument of your peace... (a humble prayer)   Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
      Where there is injury, pardon;
      Where there is doubt, faith;
      Where there is despair, hope;
      Where there is darkness, light;
      Where there is sadness, joy; O Lord, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
      To be understood as to understand;
      To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive;
      It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
      And it is in dying(bhakti kills ego) that we are born to eternal life(mukti).   Sat Sree Akal.
    •   “Our prayers are answered not when we are given what we ask, (that is our karam) but when we are challenged to be what we can be." (that is His kirpa). Sat Sree Akal.
    •   6 Signs of Spiritual Transformations   Clarity means being awake to yourself around the clock, in waking, sleeping and dreaming. Instead of being overshadowed by externals, your awareness is always open to itself. Clarity feels totally alert, and carefree. Knowingness means being in touch with the level of the mind where every question is answered. It is related to genius, although knowingness isn't focused on music, mathematics, or other specific subjects. Your area of knowledge is life itself and the movement of consciousness on every level. Knowingness feels wise, confident, unshakable, and yet humble. Reverence for life means being in touch with the life force. You feel the same power flowing through you as through every living thing; even the dust in a beam of light dances to the same rhythm. Reverence for life feels warm, connected and exhilarating. Non-violence means being in harmony with every action. There is no opposition between what you do and what anyone else does. Your desires do not clash with another person's well-being. When you look around you see conflict in the world at large but not in your world. You emanate peace like a force field that subdues conflict in your surroundings. Non-violence feels peaceful, still and completely without resistance. Fearlessness means total security. Fear is a jolt from the past; it reminds us of the moment when we left a place of belonging and found ourselves in a place of vulnerability. Fear is born of separation, implying that the original cause of fear was the loss of unity. Ultimately, that separation is not a fall from grace but a loss of who you really are. To be fearless feels, therefore, like yourself. Wholeness means including everything, leaving nothing out. At present we each experience life sliced up into bits of time, bits of experience, bits of activity. We cling to our limited sense of self to protect the slices from falling apart. But it's impossible to find continuity in this way, hard as the ego tries in its struggle to make life hang together. Wholeness is a state beyond personality. It emerges when "I am" as it applies to you is the same "I am" everywhere. Wholeness feels solid, eternal, without beginning or end.
    • In regards to the Kashmir issue. Pakistan claims the ENTIRETY of Kashmir, as does India. Which is faulty.  Pakistan's claim was that it's a Muslim majority province and thus should be acceded to Pakistan. However, with that being true, one fact has to noted: There is a Hindu/Buddhist/Sikh Majority in the Jammu and Ladakh region, with significant minorities in Kargil (Southern Kargil is majority non-Muslim) and Doda. If anything, it would have to be partitioned like The Panjab and the Bengal. And that wouldn't solve Pakistan's water insecurity. 
    • What debate? Half of all you people talk as if the last book you read was in primary school (I guess someone's gotta keep the Kathavachiks in Business).  I'm here mostly to discuss, learn, give info, and correct.  And I just don't like people that push the pro-Pakistani narrative, or those who really have no business here, faith wise. 🤷🏽‍♂️
