Words like cyber-space, cyber-crime, cyber-spying are all related to the internet !!

I even made a project on "Cyber-Spying"..it was really very interesting !!

It was  a project by 20 students of our school..we had fun making it..

We used to go to cyber-crime branches all over Delhi, the capital of India. It was a project which made us learn more about the Cyber World and we were really astonished and quite moved to see the percentage of the cyber crimes that take place all over the world !!!
