A small village in the region Ilaka in Madagascar is the home for a sapphire site and it is the source of half the production of sapphires in the world.
Illegal miners work here in conjunction with large-scale productions. All sapphire businesses here operate almost without any control, in an atmosphere of "Wild West" with its lawlessness and crime.
According to official studies, 19 thousands of children out of 21 who live there are working in sapphire mines.

Sunil,This is an excellent artilce. You're right that there is tremendous potential for the Internet to develop using Indian languages.But I don't think that the potential will be realized any day soon. In India, success, technology, the Internet, and the English language all seem to be strongly linked. Whether this is okay or not is a different story - but that seems to be the reality.
