This week Rashtrapati Bhavan revealed some interesting statistics to prove how people are reaching out to the President, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. It seems the official Web site of the President of India has got the highest number of 127 lakh hits in August, with 10.12 lakhs hits on Independence Day. The August 13-20 week recorded 44 lakh hits on the site. The earlier highest number of 108 lakh hits was in January and the average monthly hits on the Web site in 2006 works out to around 95 lakhs so far. But it was not August 15 that recorded the highest number of hits it was September 12 with 24 lakh hits. This is said to be the highest hit in a day for any government Web site.
