get direction - india

I forgot to mention about MSN maps in my last post. It is amazing, guess what? I can search route from guindy to avadi in Chennai.

There is a problem when searching routes in India, poor thing doesnt know the names of small roads and hence says take left/right on the "local road", still this thing is coool and not to mention the amazing picture quality of "birds view" of places in US.

Desi version of Amazon? Claims to have a lot of titles! Old and new books for sale online. Check it for yourself

Daily News and Analysis is Mumbai based site and targets youth. Section to voice yourself and the news is exactly what I want, unlike what I wrote in Tsunami post

Want to send family in India photo? This is a nice site, but I was told the courier at times gets delayed, but the prices are catchy

hey dude.. wont believe. It would have hardly been 3 days since I told my pa (when he was reading the daily newspaper. It would be around 8.30 am when I woke up;)) that I had a weird dream... looking for route maps in Chennai using google...he didnt even listen to what I said.. perhaps he was busy going thru the newspaper.
Then I told myself that surely within another 3 months that it would be possible since google didn't release any new (gr8) tool (that I knew of) in the past months...Within a day I heard from one of my relatives that in fact online maps is already in place for B'lore city..
I checked Goooooogle if they ha \d done the trick.. but not to be..
today I was amazed to see this article from u... though msn maps is not accurate its a nice way to start online maps in Chennai..
am really amused with this...still a real looong way to go for it to match with the ones in U.S.. nevertheless a gr8 way to start the proceedings.. kudos to msn..
