Do you have any questions you want to ask the world? Here’s your chance. For the next six weeks, Yahoo! India will provide you a platform to ask any question on any issue that you feel is important.

Yahoo! India has launched a forum on Saturday, called ‘Ask The Planet’ (ATP), on Yahoo! India Answers, an online community where anyone can ask and answer questions on any topic.

“The ATP Series will provide an innovative platform for millions of Indians based on their real life experiences, to answer some of the biggest questions that touch our lives today," said Yahoo! India MD George Zacharias.

The 'Ask The Planet' series will continue for a period of six weeks, allowing users to answer a string of questions posed by Indian luminaries and achievers.

The questions will be on varied subjects including education, health, law and enforcement, games and recreation, society and culture, to name just a few. The first question posted on Day 1 was by President A P J Abdul Kalam.

His poser: “What should we do to free our planet from terrorism?” Answers to Dr Kalam's question have come from people like Kiran Bedi, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Leander Paes and Akum Longchari.

Some other questions that have been asked cover issues ranging from environment (‘How can we protect world from the recent global heating problem?’) to gardening (‘What are the best roses to grow?’) to plain curiosity (‘What is love?’).
