Cosmetic change to my RedBull.

The new logo design on my Redbull's fuel tank was a boring one for me. So, decided to switch it to the old logo design.

This is new logo design which was pasted 1.5 years ago. This was not matching to the temperament of my steed.

So, its getting removed.

And the charm of my steed is upped with the old type logo adoring the tank of my redbull

Healer's Baskar Sir's One Day symposium on Home Education system


 
We attended this one day symposium on 4th Feb 2017.
Banu Self Education is a module being developed by Healer Baskar Sir. There are so far 14 videos available on the youtube regarding this topic. These videos are speeches done by Healer Baskar as well as video coverage of the discussions related to education. The speakers in these videos are eminent persons who are really working to improve the education system that has got ruined over the past six decades. Videos can be viewed at http://selfeducationathome.com/video.html . Watch them one by one and get enlightened on how we have been ruined of our knowledge; get an idea on what can be done to safeguard our next generation.



India was the knowledge / cultural superpower in the world some 4 centuries ago. During those time, English was nowhere near us. All our ancestors learned by mother tongue. As the colonial power landed in our shores, our culture was ruined and we were conned to believe that English is a superior language than our mother tongue. Slowly our ancient wisdom was eclipsed by a useless Macaulay system through which we were made to believe as if we got into a elevated level.
I am sure that you have questions propping out. I have one question to you now. Many years ago, there were Indians who made waves to be known around the world; namely Mathematician (Srinivasa Ramanujam),  Physicist Sir CV Raman.,, etc., Our country was a rich one.
But after some time, there has been a blank. Why no  Indians propped out as a shining star to the world? Why is our country now stamped as a "Developing nation" ?





Nowadays, people are good slaves. They take instructions and execute what was told. Otherwise, they pass on instruction to make others work. The cause of this is that, those eminent people in ancient times got their education in their mother tongue and people of nowadays got educated in English. The education system has made them to memorize and vomit their answers without understanding anything. Students do not know how rice is grown. The top scorer of the recent time has proved to be best slave in this modern world. He / she does what was instructed and never tried to be an intellectual. 


 
To prevent further devastation, its important for us to get educated in the same language as our mother tongue. i.e. the language which was spoken by the mother when we were in the womb. But since our culture was designed to be doomed, we were made to stick to the fallacy that English is the language that we should stick to. Our children are just memorising their text books and then doing copy and pasting routine. Its time to realize this and make our next generation to realize this.
Learn by experiencing rather than memorizing.




I had a great experience attending this symposium along with my wife and kids. My kids got a change in their thinking of their education as well their schooling system.
All the discussions and important points are being recorded and being made available on youtube. So do not fret of being unable to attend this symposium. Just watch this video below to get a brush of what we experienced while attending the symposium.



All the videos are available here at http://selfeducationathome.com/video.html, please watch sequentially and get enlightened.
Lets make our society a rich one in terms of knowledge rather than continuing to be a slavery kinda.

Green Day - Sapling Plantation Event by Cuddalore Team of Chennai Trekking Club - 4 Sep'16



 
We a group of nature loving people under the tag "CTC Cuddalore" organised  Green Day on 4 September 2016.

 

This initiative is part of Chennai Trekking Club's Ainthinai's efforts to create more spread of green on our Mother Earth.

 







 
We planted tree saplings inside the premises of St. Joseph's School, Manjakuppam,  
Cuddalore.


 
Mr.Sairam is a retired  forest dept official;  

 

 
He provided us saplings for this plantation drive. He has been developing tree saplings and providing them to people who are into planting sapling as a social activity. He provided 60+ tree saplings for free. It was a great support for us.

 

 
Before organising this, we invited people who are new to the fold of CTC, but are already experienced in nature activities. We got some vital inputs from them. Firstly they guided us to Mr.Sairam; secondly they advise us to do the digging of pits the previous day itself, thirdly it should be in a gated premises to avoid damage due to cattle.
The students of the St. Joseph's school had already dug the required pits in the designated place. It was a great help for us. Usually digging of pits for tree plantation takes up a hell lot of time. But since it was done the previous day itself, the tree plantation day was a cake walk. Nearly 50 saplings were planted within one hour. 
While everyone  removed the plastic bags and planted the saplings into the pits, one person (yours truly ofcourse) segregated away the plastic bags to avoid plastic debris polluting the places nearby. But there were sufficient plastic garbage found strewn around and we removed a total of 2 KGS of plastic garbage from the vicinity.

 
After the plantation work was over, Mr.Sairam gave an expert talk to us on his knowledge.
Some points shared by him are as follows...
In ancient times, deforestation is less and trees were more in numbers. Now more of people have lessened the space available for trees to grow. So it's important for us to plant and develop trees. It's like tending an infant to grow up.
Many animals inside forests are not getting enough food / fodder and are coming out into human habitation. People are now realising it and opine that blunders are being done by humans.
Tips for good saplings...
 
Sow the seeds, examine the sprouts which come out healthily. Select them for sapling plantation

Pit size should be larger, like 1.5 Cubic feet for our place/town - Cuddalore.

If done in rocky area, go for 3 cubic feet pit or 1 cubic metre pit.

Have farm yard manure/ fertilizer inside the pit for the sapling to get healthy and grow stronger.
Have red soil if you can get it.

The importance of taking deep pits is for trees to help their roots to go deeper and help them grow faster

The first important thing is that main root should go deeper and earlier. So make the pits as deeper as possible.

Sapling (seedlings) should be of 3 or 4 feet or more height while we sow. This helps in the  plant being tolerant to its new place of living and lessens probability to cattle attack.

Sapling with the soil should be handled with care, like an infant. Do not allow shock. That will kill the plant.

Do not water abundantly. That will kill the plant. Better to have wet as well as dry condition.Water it only if you find the tree is showing unhealthy symptoms due to want of water.Watering to be done only when needed. Excess watering is a kill.
Protection of plants is a necessity. Many types of tree guards are available. Just three poles and a chicken mesh is a simple and cost effective protection for a baby tree.
There is a misconception that  roots of trees will damage adjacent building. This is not true for most instances. We are having modern system for construction. Piling type of construction methods are there. These methods are insulated against any damages due to tree roots.

Three poisonous species tree are
Veli Karuvel maram
Parthenium
Neyveli Kattamanei

We had a great experience in gaining knowledge from him....

 
We had few snacks and the green warriors dispersed from the place with satisfaction. 

 
At last we found that we had extra saplings, we then went back to Mr.Sairam's home

 
And we gave the saplings back to him, so that it will be sent to a next social activity by himself.

 
We were awestruck to see that Mr.Sairam Sir is pruning up so many saplings at his home.
 
A day well spent...
