    Newspaper Vending Machine @ Chennai Metro!

    View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rajesh K (@wowsuper_net) on May 5, 2019 at 7:15am PDT We traveled in Chennai Metro recently (Thirumangalam to Vadapalani) and were surprised to find that their railway stations are equipped with a few types of vending machines. The vending machine that surprised us the most was the Newspaper Vending machine. You can see it in action in the above-embedded video. We have never seen a newspaper vending machine before. So we were intrigued and dropped a five rupee coin inside. A Tamil newspaper edition of Thina Malar popped out of the machine almost instantly. The regular cost of the paper is…

    Wooden Engraving Gifts in Chennai – Surprize Gifts

    Surprize Gifts is a shop in Chennai (Nungambakkam, Perambur) specializing in personalized gifts. In the above video, you can see a few samples of their wooden engraving gifts. If you give your photo, they’ll engrave it on a wooden plank. When compared to regular gifts like cup & saucer, flowers, photo frames, etc. these customized gifts show that you have not only made something that the recipients will cherish, but you have taken efforts to make it. Of course, the photo may not be very clear when engraved on wood, but there is a rustic look that gives it a vintage touch. It is a class apart from regular gifts.…

    Education & Soft Power (Discussion)

    I was invited, as an alumni, to attend a round-table discussion on ‘Education & Soft Power with Academicians’, organized by DAV Group of Schools, Chennai in collaboration with Center for Soft Power, New Delhi. The speakers were – Prof. Gulab Mir Rahmany (Associate Professor, Political Sociology, Afghanistan) & Prof. Dilafruz Nasirkhodjaeva (Sr. Researcher, Economics, Uzbekistan). What is Soft Power? Soft Power is the influence exerted by one culture/country over another by methods other than violence, force, or coercion. Some good examples of India exerting soft power in the Asian region was given by Prof. Gulab from Afghanistan. Today, most of the youth in his country are influenced by Bollywood. So…

    Chennai: Buy Paper/Jute Bags made by Ppl with Disabilities

    Incepted in 1989 with just 6 kids, Vasantham – a school & home for people with disabilities – now supports 123 children and adults.

They have a small cute shop outside Vasantham building which is…

    My Smartband BUZZES every 15 minutes I don’t move!

    So I bought a Smartband – Titan Fastrack Reflex Smartband that I am wearing on my wrist for most part of the day. It’s like a watch, but looks very modern and has a small digital display. Of course it shows the time, date, etc. But I bought it for another reason – it has a sedentary reminder alarm. That means, it buzzes every 15 minutes when I keep continuously sitting at the same place. Since my work is predominantly on the laptop, there are times when I sit down and work even for 1 or 1.5 hours continuously. As you can guess, it’s a bad idea. But nowadays, these…
