So I know many of you have been reading about India’s proposed ban of BlackBerry devices. Personally I find it extremely boring. India should just get over itself and look for a solution instead of making ultimatums. Now they just sound like a bad soon to be ex-girlfriend.
This whole saga has actually taught me something. I was reading an article on the Times Of India website with the title “Over 4 lakh BlackBerry users may be hit.” Which had me clicking for more. It sounded interesting.
Turns out a lakh is actually a unit in the Indian numbering system. It stands for 100,000 or 10 to the fifth power. If your interested in this kind of stuff I recommend reading this page on Wikipedia. I found it to be the most interesting part of this whole annoying ordeal eating up article space in my RSS reader.
