What every Indian must know – Difference between Indian Diaspora and NRI?

Punjabi folks over in the northern part of India and the Tamilians in the south, all the plans that you people make to go out of the country to Canada and Singapore respectively will make you feel dumb if you don’t the real difference between that of Indian Diaspora and NRI.

The term Diaspora was originally connoted to describe the dispersion of the Jews outside Israel. It's now used in the context of various communities that are dispersed outside their home country. E.g. the Indian Diaspora, American Diaspora etc.


NRI, which stands for non-resident Indian, is a more specific term used for tax purposes. It refers to "a citizen of India who holds an Indian passport and has temporarily emigrated to another country for six months or more for employment, residence, education or any other purpose."

So the Indian Diaspora is a much broader term because it could refer to an Indian living  anywhere outside India who doesn't necessarily even have Indian citizenship. NRIs would also become part of the Diaspora, so that's where the overlap is, but not all of those who comprise the Indian Diaspora are NRIs.

Magnetic brain stimulation can bring back 'lost' memories

New York, Dec 2 (UITV/IANS) : With a technique that uses magnets to stimulate the brain, it is possible to bring back short-term "forgotten" memories stored in the brain, new research has found.

The researchers conducted a series of experiments in which people were asked to remember two items representing different types of information -- they used words, faces and directions of motion -- because they would be tested on their memories.

When the researchers gave their participants a cue as to the type of question coming -- a face, for example, instead of a word -- the electrical activity and blood flow in the brain associated with the word...

Climate cycles may explain how running water carved Mars' surface features

New York, Dec 2 (UITV/IANS) : Dramatic climate cycles on early Mars, triggered by buildup of greenhouse gases, may be the key to understanding how liquid water left its mark on the planet's surface, a study says.

Using climate models, the researchers showed warming periods -- caused when greenhouse gases reached a certain tipping point -- lasted millions of years on Mars, melting the glaciers that covered the surface of the planet, thereby creating liquid water.

Scientists have long debated how deep canyons and extensive valley networks -- like the kinds carved by running water over millions of years on Earth -- could form on Mars some 3.8...
