Today, the speed with which the advent of communication technologies
has changed the world around us is mind boggling. Such rapid
development was unseen and unheard of. Today the world can been seen
as more of a global village where each component is interconnected
with innumerable other components. This frantic pace of development
has led to either evolution in cultures and languages or has given
birth to spurious and dynamic new linguistic cultures. Thus it
becomes a tad difficult for ones selves to keep abreast with the new
linguistic terms either generic or technical.
There are hundreds
of thousands of phrases / concepts / phenomena or words which are
used by various people in their day to day life but the meanings of
those terms is either unclear, incomplete or partially
understandable but still they are used on a breathtaking scale
almost daily. Thus it becomes imperative that everyone is made
familiar with such terms or phrases which would enhance their
understanding and knowledge irrespective of cast, color or creed.
Gyan Bindu is a step towards that direction. Through this service
it is envisaged that anyone in India will have a quick and reliable
access to unfamiliar terms or phrases with minimal cost involved for
availing the service.
The crux for the complete application is mobility. Anywhere, anytime
when a person needs to have information or knowledge regarding some
term / phrase they can have it quickly, reliably and cheaply just at
the touch of a button. Itís information on fingertips in literal
sense. Information is no longer dependent on other factors like
location, person etc. Its availability is made right there on the
spot and just when needed.
Thus for example any person who wants to have authentic, quick
and reliable information to aid in enhancement of their knowledge
base for the concerned phrase or word can easily make use of this
service. The users have to just send an SMS containing the phrase to
a central number. The online Gyan Bindu service by BAOU will send a
return SMS to the users providing knowledge about the term which the
user wanted to understand in a better manner.
Thus the average users benefit this way as they are kept abreast
with the meanings of latest terminologies or buzzwords at the
fraction of a cost. This will prove to be useful in vastly improving
the knowledge of citizens about latest terminology.
