209 Seconds videoThat Will Make You Question Your Entire Existence.
Every time you get upset about something small, just remember this.

Our Solar system is insignificant in the entire Cosmos, We are insignificant 
on earth, yet  Our EGO makes us think  we are the center of the universe .
After watching this our EGO will drop a wee bit atleast.

[www.keralites.net] Harish Dhandev He Left A Govt Job & Now Makes 2 Crores Annually By Farming World Class Aloe Vera :-

 

Harish Dhandev He Left A Govt Job & Now Makes 2 Crores Annually By Farming World Class Aloe Vera 


  

Harish's journey from civil engineering to becoming a farmer began when he went to visit an agricultural expo held in Delhi. A junior engineer with the Jaisalmer Municipal Council, Harish was motivated to take up farming and began contemplating growing crops in his farm, back home. The farming background of his family also helped and he quit his job to cultivate aloe-vera and other crops on his 120-acre farmland. 


Today, Harish earns an annual turnover of around Rs 1.5 crore to Rs 2 crore.

 

Experts at Patanjali, an Indian FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) company, were particularly impressed with the quality of aloe vera grown in his farm and ordered it in bulk. His aloe vera also is also in high demand in the international market including Brazil, Hong Kong, and America. What began as an initial effort of farming with 80,000 saplings of aloe vera, has today reached an impressive number of seven lakh saplings. 


The growing demand of his aloe vera can be assessed by the fact that in the last four months, he has sent 125-150 tonnes of processed aloe vera pulp to Patanjali factories in Haridwar.

 

Harish's story is an example that if more and more educated youth turn to farming, they sure can change the face of agriculture in India.

[www.keralites.net] Haunting Pictures Of Kids Around The World And Their Bedrooms

 

We adults often take many things for granted. No matter how cliché the half empty-half full glass theory is, it does explain a very important lesson in life – one should always be content with what we have. Unfortunately, most of us, including me, do not follow this in life. We crib, whine and crave for things that we don't possess. While there is nothing wrong with having desires, we somehow fail to notice the other side of the coin.

Inequality was, is and will always exist in the world that we live in and no one can do anything about it. However, spreading awareness about the same is something one should encourage. Enter James Collison, a Kenyan-born, England-raised, Venice-based photographer, who has travelled the world to capture snapshots of children and their bedrooms. Sounds bizarre, right? But hang on, your views will change once you go through his pictures.

This eye-opening series is called 'Where Children Sleep' and it features bedrooms of poverty-stricken kids. These social classes will both disturb and shock you at the same times. And that's not the only catch here - they are not just nameless and identity-less pictures of kids and their bedrooms - they have names and some very shocking stories to tell.

Read on.

1. Alex, 9, Rio De Janerio, Brazil

This Romanian boy sleeps with his family on a mattress in a field on the outskirts of Rome. Life isn't easy for him or his family. They managed to pay for their bus tickets from Romania to Italy, after begging for money. With no identity papers, his parents clean windscreens at traffic lights since they cannot obtain legal work. None of his family members have ever been to school.

9. Erlen, 14, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

This is perhaps the saddest one of the lot, 14-year-old Erlen lives in Favela in Rio, Brazil. She is pregnant for the third time. She does not have a personal bedroom, she sleeps on the floor. However, her mother swapped places with her and allowed her to sleep on the bed during the later stages of pregnancy.  She lost both her babies shortly after their births.

12. Roathy, 8, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Calling this kid impoverished would be an understatement.

Every morning at 6, Roathy and hundreds of other children like him are given a shower and breakfast at a local charity center before he starts work. Work for him is all about scavenging for plastic bottles and cans, which are then sold to a local recycling company. Breakfast is sometimes the only meal of the day.

13. Rinku Singh, Dinesh Patel, Uttar Pradesh, India

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Rinku and Dinesh aren't a part of James Collison series but the two boys do have an inspiring story to tell. Hailing from extremely poverty-stricken families, this duo caught the eye of struggling sports agent J.B. Bernstein. While Singh is the son of a truck driver and shared a single room with eight other siblings, Patel was brought up by his grandmother in Khanpur because his parents were too poor to afford to raise him. They got an opportunity to star in Bernstein's reality TV show. This show was about training young kids in baseball. Singh emerged as a winner while Patel was announced as a not-to-miss talent. After this show the duo entered the professional baseball scene in the US and the rest as they is history.

And then there are some extremely privileged kids like these:

Anant Ambani, 21, Mumbai, India

Fun & Info @ Keralites.net

Son of the richest man in India, Mukesh Ambani, Anant's life is all about magic carpets and golden spoons. He lives in a 27-story residential skyscraper called Antilla in Mumbai.
