[www.keralites.net] Inspired by a Greek Gadget, This Water Device Can Transform Drought-Hit Maharashtra.-Neer Chakra

 



Inspired by a Greek Gadget, This Water Device Can Transform Drought-Hit Maharashtra - NeerChakra



Among the 10-odd women is Shilpa, a young woman who recently had a miscarriage.

Shilpa has always found it difficult to carry the heavy pots of water, and balancing them—one on the head and one supported by her arm on the waist—is no easy task. The daily chore has left her with an aching back.

Today, however, she is towing along an unusual device—a water pail on four wheels. It sounds and looks simple, but is going to be of great help women like her who have to fetch water from the river every day.

The device, NeerChakra, is the brainchild of Tanveer Inamdar and Resham Sethi.


Tanveer collaborated with 28-year-old Resham, a Research Student at the Brandeis University, USA, to chalk out a solution and the result was NeerChakra, a water transportation device.

The device has been inspired by the Gimbal Ink Pot, a Greek invention. A gimbal is a pivoted support that lets an object (like the ink pot or a pail of water) rotate on a single axis..

The NeerChakra is equipped with four wheels, a braking system, a battery set, and a power generator, in addition to a gyroscopic stabiliser, which absorbs the shock to the pail and minimises water spillage.

"The wheel is a basic, yet, widely-used invention, so we wondered if it could be put to use to help women in drought-hit areas. We created the NeerChakra about six months ago to help these women, and when we experimented on the ground, we observed that it reduced a lot of their efforts!"

The 80-100 litre device is made of metal and plastic.

The container in the middle is placed in a manner that protects it from outer influences like bumpy roads.



"We ask the women to carry a small container of water along with them. They can use this container to fill water in the NeerChakra, and have three options to empty out the device when they are home. They can use a smaller container, like a glass, if they require a small quantity of water. They can also use the tap attached to the device to pour out water. The device is completely detachable so if they need to use all the water in the device, they can dismantle it completely."
They asked about 72 women to try out the NeerChakra. The feedback was unanimous—the device saves 80% of their time and between 70-80% of their efforts every day.

[www.keralites.net] When I started Loving Myself

 

WHEN I STARTED LOVING MYSELF
CHARLIE CHAPLIN - When I started Loving Myself....
When I started loving myself
I understood that I'm always and at any given opportunity
in the right place at the right time.
And I understood that all that happens is right –
from then on I could be calm.
Today I know: It's called TRUST.
When I started to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
When I tried to force my desires on this person,
even though I knew the time is not right and the person was not ready for it,
and even though this person was me.
Today I know: It's called LETTING GO
When I started loving myself
I could recognize that emotional pain and grief
are just warnings for me to not live against my own truth.
Today I know: It's called AUTHENTICALLY BEING.
When I started loving myself
I stopped longing for another life
and could see that everything around me was a request to grow.
Today I know: It's called MATURITY.
When I started loving myself
I stopped depriving myself of my free time
and stopped sketching further magnificent projects for the future.
Today I only do what's fun and joy for me,
what I love and what makes my heart laugh,
in my own way and in my tempo.
Today I know: it's called HONESTY.
When I started loving myself
I escaped from all what wasn't healthy for me,
from dishes, people, things, situations
and from everyhting pulling me down and away from myself.
In the beginning I called it the "healthy egoism",
but today I know: it's called SELF-LOVE.
When I started loving myself
I stopped wanting to be always right
thus I've been less wrong.
Today I've recognized: it's called HUMBLENESS.
When I started loving myself
I refused to live further in the past
and worry about my future.
Now I live only at this moment where EVERYTHING takes place,
like this I live every day and I call it CONSCIOUSNESS.
When I started loving myself
I recognized, that my thinking
can make me miserable and sick.
When I requested for my heart forces,
my mind got an important partner.
Today I call this connection HEART WISDOM.
We do not need to fear further discussions,
conflicts and problems with ourselves and others
since even stars sometimes bang on each other
and create new worlds.
Today I know: THIS IS LIFE!
- Thanks,
M.D.HEGDE MANGALORE

[www.keralites.net] Last Lecture

 

 LAST LECTURE
Dr. Randy Pausch died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book 'The last lecture" before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind…
In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.
1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment 
3. Don't over do; keep your limits 
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does 
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip 
6. Dream more while you are awake 
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present 
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you 
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.unity:
15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others 
17. Forgive everyone for everything 
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6 
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business 
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.
22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do. 
23. GOD heals everything 
24. Do the right things 
25. Whatever good or bad a situation is, it will change 
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up 
27. The best is yet to come 
28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful 
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it 
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.
While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with, people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.
If you like this, please share.
THANKS
- M.D.HEGDE
