Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment

  Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment   Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 19 October 2021   Overexploitation of natural resources and haphazard development by humans has led to climate change, resulting in long-lasting consequences on the environment. This is increasing health hazards and natural disasters, and more, day by day. The torrential flooding being witnessed recently in the state of Kerala in India is a prime example of this, say many experts.   This is not the first time that Kerala, a state of 34 million people, has been devastated by floods. It saw the worst floods in a century in 2018 when severe rains caused flash floods and landslides, killing nearly 500 people and leaving a million homeless. The following year, more than 125 people were killed in flash floods and landslides across the state. More than 50 were killed in August last year after landslides struck the hilly Munnar region.   The latest spell of torrential

Indian breaks 217 walnuts in a minute with his head, shatters Guinness record

Mumbai: October 9, 2018

After coming across a YouTube video of a Pakistani man smashing 155 walnuts (and later 181 walnuts) with his head in a minute and set the Guinness World Record, 22-year-old S Navin Kumar of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh state, India, decided to break the record.

 “While randomly going through YouTube videos I came across Pakistani citizen Muhammad Rashid setting a Guinness world record in breaking the most number of walnuts in 60 seconds with his head. First, he set a record of breaking 155 walnuts in a minute, and a year later he broke his own record by breaking 181 walnuts. I then decided to set a new record in this category,” said Navin, who holds a degree in Psychology, besides being a martial arts enthusiast.

“I had been practicing for one year. It was not an easy task. In the very first attempt I made to break a walnut with my head, I had a headache which lasted for a week. Gradually, through practice and grit I got used to the pain, and was able to shatter Muhammad Rashid’s record,” said Navin. 

In November last year, Navin broke a whopping 217 walnuts in 60 seconds with his head and set a new Guinness world record for smashing the most number of walnuts with head in a minute. Navin methodically smashed the nuts, which were laid out in rows of two, while keeping his hands locked behind his back, in the stunt that took place in the presence of representatives of Guinness World Records. Yesterday (October 8), he was awarded the certificate for the same.
