Aiming to bring low-cost illumination to residents of the Philippines, a nation of 7,000 oceanic islands, the Salt Lamp uses a free and abundant resource to reduce fire risk from candles and replace the cost of traditional lighting.

Developed by engineer Lipa Aisa Mijena of De La Salle University, theSalt Lamp requires a single glass of water with two tablespoons of salt to provide a night’s worth of a light (complimenting approaches likeLiters of Light that work in dark spaces during the day), but, best of all, it can run off the naturally salty water of the surrounding ocean.

Choose your own adventure(CYOA) – Evolution of books

         I am a great lover of books. I know what books means to reading enthusiasts. A reader lives a thousands lives before he does .
        But sometimes I feel sad because I have no control of that lives . The only way we can participate in story just by turning pages. Isn’t it will be good to have some interaction with the story? To tell protagonist do this not do ? What fun it will be to actually live the life of our favourite character. To go in a war , fall in love , join resistance to end a tyrannical rule or do toe ceiling kisses.
      Well you can always write your own novels buy that is a consumes a lot of time and not everyone ‘s piece of cakes.
      Computers have changed everything a around us. Even our ways of reading with ebooks and now computers in our hand ( our dear smartphone) are bringing an evolution in the world of books – CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE (CYOA) style books.
       These books allows you to take the role of the protagonist . At regular intervals in the story you get lots of choices which leads to different paths in the story.
     Quiet awesome isn’t it? Most of the stories have a stats system. These stats are abilities rather measure of abilities of the protagonist whose role you are playing. These can be strength , vitality , stamina, magic our even love.  compassion , control , your relationship with other characters.
       In some books some stats are shown opposite to each other like good to evil , power to slyness , emotional to logical.
       Don’t worry your smartphone will do all the calculation of the stats. You just have to read and make your choices . Stats will increase our decrease based on your choices .
       Basically they added some rpg elements to books with much more control of story.
        Your choices are quiet important and they pretty much control the story. Some choices may require a minimum value of some stats.
Like can break a door only if you have strength more than 12. Or crack an exam worth a high intelligence. It is always good to get a look at your stats before making a choice.
       There is a huge collection of such books present at Android play store as well as Apple app store.
       Developers like Choice of games , Tin man games , Hoisted games , Delight games have provided a wide range of CYOA books.
         Tin man games add good music and sound and visual effects and an awesome stats and battle system in their apps.
     On the other hand developers like Choice of games and Hoisted games have provided more lengthy and more choice based stories  . They do not have any sound our visual  effects only powered by your imagination. I like this type more.

India – country of rape- NOT SO POSSIBLE

       India – a major country in central south east asia, has recently came into lime light because of increasing number of rape cases. According to govt census more than 29,000 cases are registered. But this number is it the whole story. 
Thousands of incidents unreported . Victims are forced to hide their plea due to family pressure , fear of infamy. Often the victim is black mailed by making mms of the heinous act.
       Honour of family is also a great barrier that prevent such incidents to be reported. Many a times victim is only blamed for arousing the accused. She is blamed for bringing disgrace to family name .
        Another problem is lack of sensitivity . People see victims with disgust , not with empathy. Many women are  afraid to go to police just because police is not sensitive.
Reciting the incidence becomes a greater mental trauma then the rape itself.
       Rate of increasing of rape incidence is greatly growing f room previous year. Example are like nirbhaaya rape case , a girl is brutally raped and assaulted in a moving bus that has finally led to her death.
        Just presently a professor in Germany refused admission to a student on ground that he is an indian male and may be a that to her female students
      So does India really that unsafe for woman? Should you cancel your vacation to I?
       Believe me that is more a myth than reality. Petty words of some enemies of the country.
       I am not saying these things are not true. But one thing that is happening in the country is CHANGE. Change in mindset , change in opinion , change in cultures , change in people itself who makes a country.
       After the nirbhaaya case thousands of people in national capital as well as rest of the country too to streets chanting slogans and demanding death sentence for the rapist. It shows that people want change. And it is happening . Soon after the incidence new law formed extending the definition of rape. Harshening  the punishment . Even giving a norm for death sentence on rare cases. 
      Women safety was  one of the top priority issue in state as well as the general elections . All political parties included safety for woman at the top of their agenda.
       Not only safety efforts are on the rise to empower the women.
         But we need to understand where the real problem lies. Fact is that Indian culture bans any kind of activity or discussion related to sexual topics. This is believed to prevent any kind of bad thoughts in a child’s mind.
      But this may not be entirely true . Sexual things  are part of being human . They just cannot be completely forbid. As a child becomes a teenager there are lot of hormonal changes in him/her . Curiosity about them is only natural. It is obvious they will try to understand . But they are afraid to discuss with their friends. So they will use other sources. India ranks second on porn content search . It does not surprise me. This gives them incomplete or unethical knowledge that may turn them in rapist .
      Great effort are being made by govt and NGOs to impart right sex education to children . Many people accepting the fact that right education on sexual issues is the best solution for this problem. Mindsets are rapidly changing.
       Also , changes are made in training arrangements of police to impart emotional training to handle such issues.
       The recent rise in registered cases is actually a good thing. As people are becoming less afraid of making an FIR.
       More women are being hired as constables to handle such cases.
      Also, the indian culture gives woman very high status in society . The culture which is blamed for oppressing womanhood , is actually their greatest honour. We are taught to respect woman as a sister, mother, wife . We are taught that they are lifetime of our life. Without them we are nothing. But some people  bends these teachings to suit their convenience. They are at fault and not out culture.
        But they are a small part of the indian society of 1 billion. There are 100s of millions who place women in utmost esteem.
       We believe in ‘Naari shakti’
We know that a woman can make the earth a heaven and also can bring down help if her dignity is endangered.
       India is a great nation. Its beauty lies in many culture , all of which have given woman a place that equals gods.
       Please don’t make a wrong opinion just due to petty thinking of some jealous people.
      Lots of thanks for reading. Your thoughts hold great value to me . Please share them in comments.
      Have a blissful life and visit India some time.

      
      
     

Inferiority Complex – failing before you fail

Inferiority complex is
a sense of personal inferiority arising from conflict between the desire to be noticed and the fear of being humiliated.
Human is a social being. One cannot live alone . Every person want to feel praised. Want to feel important among his fellas. This is a fact and not an assumption . U
      But it is also true that we are afraid to go in public . Are we looking good. What others think about us. etc etc. This fear is quiet natural . It is actually the fear of unknown.
We fear things that are uncertain , not experienced to us before . And we compare ourself with others who seems to be better.
     Inferiority complex is not just a newbie nature that possess over time. In some cases it can be a huge  psychological problem hampering your growth and confidence. It is not uncommon that inferiority complex has led to grave incidence .
There can never be a way to run from inferiority complex . You can only fight it.
How . That I will tell you.
First step is understand that inferiority complex is as common as air around you. It is not that you are only affected by it. Every human being in some part of his/her life is affected by it. It is also not uncommon that people has overcome it. Never ever leave hope .
Secondly , you have to identify you have inferiority complex or not . Are you really taking it seriously or not? What are its sources? Jot down on a paper as stupid as it appears, It always help.
Once you know all this you can start the real work.
Think over them are they really that important. Most of the things dont deserve your attention.
You may have complex because you sucks in something and your some friend or some  pear is great in it. Like I sucks in sports and most of my friends are typically athletes. It is found that pear pressure is greatest source of inferiority complex .
It is not necessary that you have too be like your pears. You may not have their talents.
But I am 101% due you will have some unique talent that they may not have . You just have to find it.
Try some hobbies. Gardening , sports , computers, video games , reading or even chatting anything you like. In the process you may find your hidden talent which you can boost. Even if you fail to find your talent it is never a waste of time. You gain new experiences and lots of enjoyment which you can share with your friends. And this can be death blow to your complex.
Good understanding friends are boon for entire lives .
You can share anything with them . They will understand you and also will protect you from unwanted things like your complex. Like I said before i sucks in sports. But I worked hard in academics and became good on it . I helped my friends in studies and gained their respect. In turn they helped me in sports.
So try to make friends. Always be polite with others. It happens many times that jealousy takes root in you from your complex . You eye their achievements with disgust and soon it will turn to envy.
You must not let this happen. Envy will only destroy you. Immediately remove such thoughts as these comes in your mind. Always try to be polite . Appreciate their talent and not just for showing.
Gaining confidence is also a great way to overcome inferiority complex. Public fearing has frightened even the greatest persons in history. Those who have overcome it has made history. Try to overcome this fear of public. Participate in drama or debates or recitations anything in which you get to go in stage or just in front of class . You may feel like a fool. But you are not . You may win nothing but you get the exposure that will build your confidence. More your confidence increase less your complex will become.
Also just dont compare yourself with others . You are a human being. Every human is unique . You have unique personality, unique talents ,.unique sms dna , unique soul. Unique soul. You are special in yourself. Look yourself with dignity . Dont run from shortcomings. Accept them as you accept your strengths. Be yourself.
Finally, from above words it feels like inferiority complex is a curse on humanity. But every thing has a negative as well as a positive side. It is your vote that matters. You can view your complex as a challenge . Why you just accept that you sucks in something . Use your complex to motivate you to challenge your weaknesses. Like I was never good in any sports; . But I refuse to accept it . I played every sport with my friends. I tripped 10s of times . I was blamed when our team loses . But I never gave up. I kept trying. Over time I improved .I may not become some athlete but I improved my fitness and reflexes. Even this can take out your hidden talents. Your complex can be your greatest demotivater or your greatest inspiration.
I have tested these techniques in my life itself. These really works. But remember this are only guidelines. Real effort you have to do yourself. You caan do it .

If you have any questions or suggestions please leave in comments . After all you have a completely unique view of life from which I can learn many things . Never estimate you, yours and yourself.
