Queensland launches Oz-India 'harmony' website
Melbourne, Jan 31: A city in Queensland has launched a 'harmony' website to improve relations between India and Australia.

The Aussie-India Harmony website has been established by Ipswich in conjunction with Indian IT services company Dhanush InfoTech.

Ipswich Mayer Paul Pisasale said, "People of both nations could use the Aussie-India Harmony forum as a platform to voice their feelings through posting good and positive comments and shared experiences."

"This (the website) is about making sure we tell a lot of great stories of Australia-India relations," Pisasale said.

"All this negative stuff that's happening has to be nipped in the bud. It doesn't reflect what Australia is all about. Australia is a wonderful country that embraces multiculturalism, and the website's all about working together for peace and harmony," Pisasale said.

Over 100 incidents of attacks on Indians, particularly students, were reported in 2009 in Australia and the assaults have continued this year unabated.
