Guys, cool down. Instead of arguing, lets make a simple vote at this moment. It'll just take a minute or so.

We can always discuss about Taj Mahal and so on afterwards........

Cheer up CD, we dont have to be proud of the Taj just because it is one of the 7 wonders, we can be proud of the fact that it is still our very own wonder & am sure the govt would get down on its knees to clean it & give it a better appearance for all.

and some people are saying that GOI is neglecting Taj as it didn't spend money on the New Seven Wonders campaign. These people do not understand that there is no financial gain in Taj being in the new list, which isn't even official UNESCO list. So we are all gonna end up spending heaps of money that would only benefit the private sponsor of the campaign and some media and in the end Taj will get nothing.

Most of the jokes that circulate on SMS, are originated from mobile communication companies. (The rest are typed out by normally_crazy)
A single bad joke can generate millions of Rupees in revenue for any mobile provider.
Stuff like, sms this to 10 people and something wonderful will happen to you at 9am tomorrow, also generate lots and lots of revenue.

This one's toh a really funny joke, so I'm guessing Reliance, Airtel, Hutch etc etc are really having a field day on this one. In a way it's good, with all the added revenue, telecommunication companies will get bigger, richer, more technically advanced and India will shine more.
