The Internet was the result of some visionary thinking by people in the early 1960s who

saw great potential value in allowing computers to share information on research and
development in scientific and military fields. J.C.R. Licklider of MIT, first proposed a
global network of computers in 1962, and moved over to the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in late 1962 to head the work to develop it.
Leonard Kleinrock of MIT and later UCLA developed the theory of packet switching,
which was to form the basis of Internet connections. Lawrence Roberts of MIT
connected a Massachusetts computer with a California computer in 1965 over dial-up
telephone lines. It showed the feasibility of wide area networking, but also showed that
the telephone line's circuit switching was inadequate. Kleinrock's packet switching
theory was confirmed. Roberts moved over to DARPA in 1966 and developed his plan
for ARPANET. These visionaries and many more left unnamed here are the real
founders of the Internet. It was conceived by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the U.S.
government in 1969 and was first known as the ARPANET. The original aim was to
create a network that would allow users of a research computer at one university to be
able to "talk to" research computers at other universities. A side benefit of ARPANet's
design was that, because messages could be routed or rerouted in more than one
direction, the network could continue to function even if parts of it were destroyed in the
event of a military attack or other disaster.

Fairy Queen built by Kitson,Thomson & Hewitson in Leeds, UK. It was acquired by East Indian Railway in 1855. Lord Falkland was the first Broad Gauge (5' 6") Engine to operate in India in 1852. Built by Vulcan Foundries,UK, this shunting engine belonged to the Great Indian Peninsular Railway. The first locomotive to be built in India in 1895:F Class, 0-6-0. Its light 7.6 tone axeleloding was ideally suited for the track conditions of India. SOME GREAT YEARS OF INDIAN RAILWAY: 1843: Lord Dalhousie conceives the possibility of connecting India by means of railway. 1853: India's first Broad Gauge train leaves from Boribunder (Bombay) to Thane. 1855: "Fairy Queen" comes into service. 1873: First Meter Gauge line opened from Delhi to Farukhnagar. 1890: Indian Railway Act passed. 1891: Toilets in third class coaches introduced. 1895: First locomotive built in India at Ajmer Works. 1902: Electric lights in coaches introduced. 1922: All-steel coaches introduced. 1925: India's first electric train introduced by the Great Indian Peninsular Railway at Bombay.

A portion of the flag is blue, while the other is red. The blue portion is flown on top in time of peace and the red portion is flown in war time. • A hamlet is a village without a church and a town is not a city until it has a cathedral. • Capsaicin, which makes hot peppers "hot" to the human mouth, is best neutralized by casein, the main protein found in milk. • Antarctica is the only continent without reptiles or snakes. • Ocean water must reach a temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit for a hurricane to form. • The Basenji, an African dog, is the only dog that does not bark. • The red kangaroo can produce two different types of milk at the same time from adjacent teats to feed both younger and older offspring. • The word vaccine originates from the Latin word for cow - VACCA from which they were first derived from.

the new generation of engineers

Hi With the new generation of engineers comming into the global arena of science and technology.India made a significant remark with being a great contributer in providing judicious engineers. The race for bieng an engineer increased so much that not only government colleges but many private deemed universities and selffinanced are filling their pocket with money.
