Looking beyond the sight – An Innovative Idea

amazed to see the hopes from a child merely 14 years old who intend to do some
extraordinary task for his mother. Boy doesn’t have vision due to impairment
from the birth. However, he is very passionate about the fulfillment and never
failed to accomplish the tasks which were given to him in the past. He looks
beyond the boundaries of inability and tries to achieve his dream with vision
and mission in this mind. The boy’s family has very small piece of land which
is inadequate to cultivate seeds for the earning. Unfortunately, his father
died due to electric shock while working in his field. From that day, he wanted
to do some achievement for betterment for his family. One fine morning, his
mother told him to do a task which is unbelievable to a normal person. There
was a power interruption to his home town and every neighbor was shouting for
the electricity to run the water pumps to their field. There was no provision
of solar or any other source of energy from which electricity could be


See the agony of this small boy who doesn’t have the physical strength to
accomplish the task. However, he was capable to achieve the extraordinary
things due to his positive approach and commitment towards his family. No child
at his age ever thinks of doing something for the family instead just plays and
runs around. His mother has told him to design a system which runs the water
pump without electricity. It’s an unbelievable and unimaginable task!!! Boy was
so courageous and competent; he just agreed to the task and started building a
system which runs the water pump. He had something unique in his mind and
started gathering the things. Somewhere he had listened from his friends that
wind is also can be used as alternate to electricity. He dismantled his old
bicycle with the help of his two or three friends and removed two tires from
the bicycle. A small metal drum was cut to make a curved profile for capturing
the wind energy from four sides. Hand operated pump which was installed by his
father long back is removed from the foundation and dismantled. The unused
metal pipes are joined and connected with the hand operated pump cylinder along
with metal curved profile. The central portion is firmly fixed with two bicycle
tires to make a wind capturing system. The total system was erected as per plan
designed by this small wonder boy and water pump started working with the help
of wind energy. Everyone was surprised including his mother for this
unbelievable achievement without proper infrastructure and of course without

more inspiring story of blind man Kish who uses his ears to see the world…really

is completely blind — he lost sight in both eyes by age 13 months. Yet he uses
his ears to see. 
When he walks around unfamiliar places — he loves hiking —
he clicks his tongue and then listens as that sound bounces off nearby objects.
He says he’s trained his brain to turn these sounds into an image of sorts —
an auditory map he follows with the help of a cane. “When you send out a
sonar call … you’re interrogating the environment,” he said.
“You’re asking, ‘Where are you?’ and ‘What are you?’ And the environment
answers back.” Kish is the founder of a nonprofit called World Access for
the Blind. His goal is to teach this technique of “human
echolocation” — or seeing the world through sound — to blind people all
over the world. So far, the group has taught at least 500 blind children to see
with their ears.

isn’t that difficult to teach. It really isn’t,” he said. “I believe
that the brain is already at least partly wired to do this. All that needs to
happen is the hardware needs to be awakened. It needs to be activated, and we
believe we’ve found ways of doing this.” Not everyone believes him.
“Many of Kish’s colleagues believe that echolocation, if it’s taught,
should remain a secondary skill for the blind,” Daniel Engber wrote at
Slate. “And some disability advocates worry that all the hoopla over sonar
makes blind people seem like superhuman freaks, with special powers that more
than compensate for their problems.” Read more in http://edition.cnn.com.

has to think beyond the limitations and deliver some extraordinary acts for the
self as well as for the society as a whole. The above story is a message for
the full sighted person that nothing is impossible in this world when we have
vision and mission for the better society. This is one of the best examples of
innovative idea and thinking beyond the sight. The tremendous amount of energy
sources is given by a nature to us; only we need to capture it in a sustained manner
so that environment and ecology won’t be disturbed.
