India’s only living fort
 
India’s only living fort

As per the records, there's a fort in Rajasthan where thousands of families have been living inside the magnificent desert fortress without paying a single penny. The fort was built by King Rawal Jaisal in 1156, and is known as the famous Jaisalmer Fort. Also, a UNESCO heritage site, it is, reportedly, the only living fort in the world. It is called a living fort, because unlike other forts that were converted into luxury hotels or were abandoned, the Jaisalmer Fort is standing tall till today and as per records, 4000 progenies of the castle’s earliest inhabitants still live inside its fortified walls, and have been earning their livelihood via tourism. The fort has 99 bastions, and is 250 ft tall; the walls are made from yellow sandstone bricks, and the roofs are covered with 3 ft mud to keep the interiors cool when the temperature soars. Another interesting feature about this fort is its environment-friendly architecture, complete with jaalis (perforated stone) and jharokhas (enclosed balcony) in the houses, which allow wind to pass smoothly.

World's youngest Poet
 
World's youngest Poet

Four year old Nadim Shamma-Sourgen is all set to become one of the youngest poet & author to get a book publishing deal.

In a TV interview, he said "I feel happy that my poems will be in a book. When my poems are in a book, can I please have a copy?" 😂😍 Here's a sample poem by the little man.

Take our gloves off
Take our shoes off
Put them where they’re supposed to go.
You take off your brave feeling
Because there’s nothing
to be scared of in the house.
On a parting note...

“Pursue your goals even in the face of difficulties, and convert adversities into opportunities." ~ Dhirubhai Hirachand Ambani
