BANGALORE: Art of Living (AOL) International centre in Bangalore saw 837 bloggers from over 10 countries participating in a event on YouTube, a social media. AOL organized a bloggers conference Make a Global Connection-Just Connect where bloggers forming communities wrote on various subjects impacting social transformation, spirituality, sports, travel and vegetarian food!

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, spiritual leader and founder of AOL also launched his at the conference. "We are in a new era where we don't depend on a group of people, journalists or newspapers. Everyone is playing the role of an informer and everyone has the right to express their vision to the whole world. This is such an opportunity but it should not be misused. Blogs can really bring conflict in communities, friends, nations, families and on the other hand it can also unite them. We should work with the intention of bridging the gap and inculcating human values," he said.

Throwing light on the aim of the conference, Chinky Sen, member of the organizing committee said, "Recent times have seen the power of the social media in raising our voices against injustice or expressing our views on the events happening in the country as well as elsewhere. Here, our aim is to explore this powerful tool to spread goodness and hope and bring people together."

The conference aimed to promote blogs and other social media activities that create a positive social transformation and explore ways to promote a violence-free, stress free and crime free society.
