COOL Positive Emotions ……

It’s called Mindset..!!!

Last Thursday I was passing through Chandigarh’s Sector 17 Parade Grounds when I saw some elephants. I suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. I saw a person, perhaps their trainer,  near by and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them. So they never try to break free.“I was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they are conditioned to believe they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Friends, make an attempt to grow further.

Your attempt may fail. But, my dear friend, You never fail to  make an attempt. This is what I learned from these elephants that day!!

World’s Smallest Girl from India

The two-foot teenager: Jyoti,The world’s smallest girl set to make it big on British TV

Her tiny form is disarming. But Jyoti Amge’s dreams are as big as those of her friends.At 15 she stands just 1ft 11½in tall and weighs less than a stone, giving her one very big claim to fame – as the smallest girl in the world.Doctors believe Jyoti is a pituitary dwarf but have never been able to pinpoint her condition.Such dwarfism is caused when the body fails to produce enough growth hormone.


Jyoti, centre, with some of her classmates – also aged 15. Her little grey uniform is specially made for her Specialists have told her she will remain the same size for the rest of her life.’When I was three I realised that I was different to the rest of the kids,’ she said.’I thought that everyone was bigger and I should get bigger too.’Jyoti has her own mini grey uniform and school bag and even a tiny desk. But she looks like a doll next to her teenage classmates.She said: ‘I am proud of being the smallest girl. I love all the attention I get. I’m not scared of being small, and I don’t regret being small.


Jyoti, centre, is the world’s smallest girl – but still attends school with her classmates, who she says don’t treat her any differently

She works from her custom made chair and table but her pens and books are still rather too large for her.’I am sure there are many people in this world who are dwarfs like me.’I’m just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don’t feel any different.’Weighing 12lb – only 9lb more than her weight at birth, Jyoti dreams of becoming an actress.Despite her size she insists on living as normal a life as possible in her home town of Nagpur in India – including going to the local school.’When I first went to shool everyone was so big I used to get scared but I’m okay now, I like it. I have a different desk and chair that were made for me.. I’m a normal student.’


Jyoti with a family friend – who, at 13 months, is already bigger than.She is also like any other teenage girl. ‘I have a huge collection of dresses. I like to shop for more. Everyone in my family gets things for me… I love make-up and like dressing up like beautiful models. I would like to be an actress when I grow up. My dream is to do films.’Jyoti has already had a taste of fame in a pop video for Indian star Mika Singh.’They asked her to appear in the video for a song on his album,’ said her mother Ranjana Amge, 45.However, Jyoti’s dreams of stardom could be ruined because of fractures to both her legs that have never healed because of problems with her size.


Baby of the family: With sister Rupali, 18, Archana, 23, mother Ranjana Amge, 45,, father Kishan, 52, and brother Satish, 22


Jyoti is taken to school on brother Satish’s motorbike, along with sister Archana.’First I could walk, but I slipped on ice during a holiday and hurt my leg. I find it strange that my legs just don’t heal. I don’t like it, it causes me pain.’Mrs Amge said: ‘No-one knows why she is so small. Jyoti is small, yet cute, and we love her very much.’People in the region of India where the family live flock to see the teenager and some even treat her as a goddess..She receives a lot of support from her brother and two sisters. Oldest sister Archana, 25, said: ‘I have been taking care of her since she was a small baby. She is so delicate and fragile.’During her first five years of life, brave Jyoti was in and out of hospital as she constantly fell sick, but eventually she grew stronger.The teenager’s father Kishan Amge, 52, a construction worker, said: ‘She makes me proud.Jyoti is to be featured in Channel 4’s Bodyshock series, which goes out 2day

The Worlds First Rotating Skyscraper…

The Worlds First Dynamic Architecture

Rotating Skyscraper Has Wind Turbine Power

Dynamic Architecture

The Dynamic Architecture building, which will be constantly in motion changing its shape, will be able to generate electric energy for itself as well as for other buildings. Forty-eight wind turbines fitted between each rotating floors as well as the solar panels positioned on the roof of the building will produce energy from wind and the sunlight, with no risk of pollution. The total energy produced by this inbuilt ‘powerhouse’ every year will be worth approximately seven million dollars.

Dynamic Architecture

Each turbine can produce 0.3 megawatt of electricity, compared to 1-1.5 megawatt generated by a normal vertical turbine (windmill). Considering that Dubai gets 4,000 wind hours annually, the turbines incorporated into the building can generate 1,200,000 kilowatt-hour of energy.

Dynamic Architecture

As average annual power consumption of a family is estimated to be 24,000 kilowatt-hour, each turbine can supply energy for about 50 families. The Dynamic Architecture tower in Dubai will be having 200 apartments and hence four turbines can take care of their energy needs. The surplus clean energy produced by the remaining 44 turbines can light up the neighborhood of the building.

Dynamic Architecture

For an overview of the rotating skyscraper and a quick look at the dynamic architecture that underlies it, take a look at this video.

However, taking into consideration that the average wind speed in Dubai is of only 16 km/h the architects may need to double the number of turbines to light up the building to eight. Still there will be 40 free turbines, good enough to supply power for five skyscrapers of the same size.

Dynamic Architecture

The horizontal turbines of the Dynamic Architecture building are simply inserted between the floors, practically invisible. They neither need a pole nor a concrete foundation. In addition, they are at zero distance from the consumer, which makes maintenance easier.

Dynamic Architecture

The modern design of the building and the carbon fiber special shape of the wings take care of the acoustics issues. Producing that much electric energy without any implication on the aesthetic aspect of the building is a revolutionary step in tapping alternative energy sources. Furthermore, this energy will have a positive impact on the environment and economy.
