A lone man in Assam in India has single-handedly created a 1360-acre forest on a sandbar

It all began in 1979 when floods washed a large number of snakes ashore on the sandbar.

One day, after the waters had receded, a 16-year-old local lad Jadav Molai Payeng wandering on the sandbar found the place dotted with the dead reptiles. The snakes died in the heat, without any tree cover.

Payang wept over their lifeless forms. He alerted the forest department and asked them if they could grow trees there. They said nothing would grow there. Instead, they asked him to try growing bamboo. There was nobody to help him. Nobody was interested. That was the turning point of his life.

He began burying seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in Assam region to grow a refuge for wildlife. Not long after, he decided to dedicate his life to this endeavor, so he moved to the site where he could work full-time creating a lush new forest ecosystem. Today, the sandbar has been turned into a sprawling 1,360 acre of jungle that Payeng planted single-handedly.

While it’s taken years for Payeng’s remarkable dedication to planting to receive some well-deserved recognition internationally, it didn’t take long for wildlife in the region to benefit from the manufactured forest. Demonstrating a keen understanding of ecological balance, Payeng even transplanted ants to his burgeoning ecosystem to bolster its natural harmony. Soon the shadeless sandbar was transformed into a self-functioning environment where a menagerie of creatures could dwell. The forest, called the Molai woods, now serves as a safe haven for numerous birds, deers, rhinos, tigers, and elephants — species increasingly at risk from habitat loss elsewhere.

Despite the conspicuousness of Payeng’s project, Forestry officials in the region first learned of this new forest in 2008 — and since then they’ve come to recognize his efforts as truly remarkable, but perhaps not enough.

This is a pair of bullets that collided during the Gallipoli (Gelibolu) Campaign of the WWI. The bullets embedded into each other were found by a farmer plowing his fields seventy-five years after the battle had concluded in 1915. These bullets are displayed in the Naval Museum in the city of Çanakkale. The odds for collision of two bullets, each traveling close to 1,500 m/sec, are abysmally low. (In 1895 there were only two automobiles in the entire City of Cleveland, and they collided. That probability was much higher, considering the pedestrian speeds that such vehicles could travel in those days, than for two bullets traveling at supersonic speeds to collide.) The factor that must be considered is the astonishing density of bullets flying through the air in that horrific battle.

There are few who dare to dream and fewer who make that dream a reality. A 65-year old woman, who lost her husband at the age of 23 due to lack of medical treatment, has today set up a hospital to make sure everyone doesn't suffer the same fate as she did.

The image that the mention of the word Mumbai conjures up is that of an upstart of a city that made it good due to its colonial past; a city whose existence is nothing more than a recent blip in the endless timeline of Indian history; a city which has no rich cultural past to be proud of, and a city which certainly has no spiritual tradition.

There are billions of galaxies in the Universe and each galaxy has billions of stars in it. Yet, even on the clearest night, we are not able to see more that 5000 stars with our unaided eyes. It is for the simple reason that most of the stars very very far away from us and each other.

“Is that high-pitched voice really mine?” “Do I actually speak in such a shrill voice?” OR “There must be some problem with the recording instrument. This is definitely not my voice.” The reaction varies from an embarrassed grin to utter dismay to complete disbelief to outright rejection when you hear your recorded voice for the first time. You refuse to believe that the shallow, ear piercing sound is your own voice, the one you have been hearing all our lives. Sorry. There is nothing wrong with the recording equipment or the speakers. The problem lies in your head. Literally.

When he first synthesized LSD on November 16, 1938, during his research on lysergic acid derivatives, Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann was not looking for something to get high on. In fact, he was searching for a respiratory and circulatory stimulant.
