Nalini Ambady is a beloved friend, renowned researcher and professor at Stanford University, and the active mom of two teenage daughters, Maya and Leena. She is also fighting for her life. Just a few days after celebrating Thanksgiving with her family and friends, Nalini was diagnosed with a recurrence of leukemia, which she first battled in 2004. Now, she urgently needs a bone marrow transplant from a genetically matched donor. Someone out there is a perfect match, but they may not be on the registry yet. That someone can literally save her life – and it could be you. Nalini needs your help.
Time is short, and the holidays are here. This is your chance to give a gift that really matters. Please
become a registered bone marrow donor by attending a bone marrow drive in your area or registering online for free. It only takes a few minutes and you could literally save a life.
Help,It’s time to use the social connections we have developed through emails, facebook, blogs etc… and try to save a life!!
We need your help in two simple ways:
– Register yourself to the Bone Marrow Registry
– Help us spread the word and encourage your friends and family to register, and ask them to help us spread the word similarly!!!
Here is a message from Aneeta Rattan, postdoctoral scholar at Standford University:
“I want to personally ask you to help. My amazing and wonderful postdoc advisor, mentor, and friend, Professor Nalini Ambady of the psychology department, has had a relapse of Leukemia, which she first had in 2004. She needs a bone marrow donor. PLEASE HELP. It is a tragedy to consider the possibility that there is a match out there, but (s)he is simply not on the registry. You can fix that with just a few minutes of your time.”
– Aneeta Rattan, postdoctoral scholar with Nalini

Even if you are registered or not, I request you to watch these few video clips:
They are part of the class at Standford University…. They are few years old, but the message is the same, and I believe the power of social media is nothing – if we, the people, don’t know how to use it…!!!
This is a very powerful analysis of how and why the anti-Modi media and Congress leaders behave. This is in Gujarati and I plan to translate it into English at a later date. It is posted on a Gujarati web site <www.http://gujarati.ning.com/> by Shirish Dave.
Title of the blog is: Narendra Modi is the only Gujarati Lion after Morarjibhai Desai to raise his head against Delhi S sultanate

I went shopping in Manek Chawk, Tran Darwaja (three gates) area of Karnavati (Ahmedabad) today. In American parlance this would be called downtown.
It was a veritable sea of humanity and vehicles of all shape and color. Traffic was so intense that pedestrians were vying for a foothold along with scooters, motor bikes, bicycles, rickshaws, cars, tempos and everything else on four wheels. There were shouting match a galore and nilly willy I got in an argument with a motor bike driver who found fault with us hapless pedestrians; when he kept telling me to move to the side, when there was really no side to move to, I had to ask him, if he wanted me to walk over his and other drivers’ heads or would he be rather satisfied by driving over all of us. At times I thought, no matter how much I tried to be careful, a wheel was going to run over my foot. Fact that this is Deepawali time, did not help the matters.

In Your Hands Lies future of Bharat- Vote Today, Vote Wisely, Vote BJP
Today Gujarat goes to poll. This is a momentous day.
It is not the question of whether BJP will win or not
It is not the question of whether BJP will get more seats than in 2007 or not,
It is not the question of whether Narendra Modi will be reelected as Gujarat Chief Minister or not
It is not the question of whether a strong showing in this election will propel Narendra Modi towards candidacy for the position of Bharat’s Prime Minister or not
All of the above questions are important but not as important as the question,
Will this election determine if our nation would get rid of Congress culture once and for all or not?
2300 years back, Pandit Vishnugupta took a vow not to tie his “shikha” until he had uprooted the Nand Dynasty from the soil of the kingdom of Magadha. He achieved this objective and established Maurya Empire, making Chandragupta Maurya its king. We know this Vishnugupta as Chanakya.
Today, you, the Gujarat voters have the historic opportunity to be the Chanakya. You can hasten throwing of Congress culture lock, stock and barrel in to Hindi Mahasagar a la Chanakya style.
You the voters of Gujarat have to start a hurricane to wipe off Congress from its roots in Gujarat.
Let that turn into a tidal wave of Tsunami by 2014 that will destroy Congress from across the land of Bharat
So would the Congress be uprooted and destroyed from Gujarat in 2012 election, in turn leading to its banishment at national level in 2014?
Now, that is the question that this election poses and also offers an opportunity to act.
Do not fail Bharatmata today and on December 17. In your hands lies the future of Bharat. Vote anti-Congress, Vote for Narendrabhai’s BJP.
Forward this to your friends; if needed, translate into Gujarati.
Thank you and Jay Hind
