- AN INSPIRATIONAL STORY
Javelin thrower Devendra Jhajaria is the only Indian to have ever won two gold medals at Paralympic games – one at the 2004 Athens Paralympics and another at the 2016 Rio Paralympics. He has held a world record (62.15m in javelin throw) and is the first para-athlete to be given the prestigious Padma Shri. In 2004, he was also awarded the Arjuna Award.
At age of eight, while he was climbing a tree in his village, he accidentally touched a live cable, which was apparently an 11,000-volt cable. So severe was the accident that (his left hand) had to be amputated right away — nobody was sure whether I would be able to recover from it. Facing ridicule and sympathetic criticism among friends and villagers only motivated him to make it big. Soon, he would reach the sports fields, his internal motivation made him to achieve his goal. Devendra went on to make his first javelin with locally available bamboo. He said that “When I looked around I saw so many people who didn’t have both arms or both legs and I thought I was lucky to have my right hand.”

🤔 How it works ⁉
How a Pendulum watch works?
What is a pendulum?
A pendulum is a rod hanging vertically from its top end (or a weight called a bob hanging from a string) that swings from side to side due to the force of gravity. As Italian scientist Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) discovered, the clever thing about a pendulum is that it always takes the same amount of time to make one complete swing.
A pendulum works by converting energy back and forth, a bit like a rollercoaster ride. When the bob is highest (furthest from the ground), it has maximum stored energy (potential energy). … So as the bob swings (oscillates) back and forth, it repeatedly switches its energy back and forth between potential and kinetic.
If there were no friction or drag (air resistance), a pendulum would keep on moving forever. In reality, each swing sees friction and drag steal a bit more energy from the pendulum and it gradually comes to a halt. But even as it slows down, it keeps time. It doesn’t climb as far, but it covers the shorter distance more slowly—so it actually takes exactly the same time to swing. This handy ability (technically called isochronism, which just means “equal amounts of time”) is what makes a pendulum so useful for timekeeping.
