Kayaking - Water Sports that is becoming the choice of populace

Created thousands of years ago by Eskimos/Inuit, kayaks today are not only famous for its multiple usages such as diving, fishing, search/rescue missions etc. but also for famous racing sport.  With just an unpretentious, low-cost boat, some protection gear, and a forward stroke on the paddle, anybody can start enjoying kayaking.

Great for waterways, rivulets, and lakes, kayaks are useful watercraft that are trivial and easy to carriage. A kayaking journey can be a serene outing on a mild lake or a great escapade.

Today kayaking india is becoming a prevailing sport on running rivers that are more extreme. Kayaking, by nature, forms a different character and a different assertiveness towards the river than does rafting, hard boating, canoeing, or cat boating. Some reasons why kayaking is growing so quickly worldwide are :

  • Kayaking is cheap. The kayaks themselves can range in price from the low hundreds to the low thousands. Also it takes it takes fewer resources to build a kayak, and in general are one of the more environmentally friendly boating activities.
  • Kayaks are also widely manageable. They can be handpicked up and transported by anyone unlike a canoe, which can take more than one person to move.
  • Kayaking is a very user-friendly kind of sport and it is easy to learn
  • One of the few water sports that is apt for people with all kinds of ability. This sport provides a chance to meet countless people and is apt for singles, couples and friends.

In addition to the above benefits, Kayaking is great exercise and gives you a view that really submerges you in the experience. It might not seem like the usual total-body workout, but it certainly warrants a spot on the workout list. Key health benefits of kayaking are

  • Paddling in the water and executing a good stroke is going to help tone every muscle in the upper body.
  • The core abdominal muscles are fortified in kayaking through the control of kayak. Turning the kayak relies on the shifting and turning of the core area of the body. Each turn of the kayak results in the use of abdominal muscles and, over time, builds these muscles.
  • Pressure applied by the legs assists in rotating and harmonizing the kayak. This constant clutching over time increases the strength of leg muscles.
  • The hurried movements involved in the sport are another benefit of kayaking as exercise. The continuous movement increases the heart rate and health.

Its time to get those workouts and have fun with family or friends. The one stop shop to buy a kayak in India and SUPs is easily available at the tip of your fingertips. You just need to log onto the website

Happy Kayaking friends, and remember that it’s all about enjoying and spending time outdoors.

Well they will have access to our personal information and it can be mis-used. For example someone can use this information to know our bank balance or access benefits given to us through our biometirc data or many more. There can be many such negative use cases. Hence it is important that we secure our biometric data.

Indian education system missing Higher-Order Thinking Skills(HOTS)

Throughout ancient India, teachers have been respected a lot. Some of the teachers have produced some great students. According to me a teacher

  • Builds self awareness, unleashes inner potential and gives contents of things when it is right
  • Should have Right intent compared to right content
  • Has the ability to create "creators" and "destroyers"
But our education system has not been built upon this lineage to build great institutes.

During one of the training programs i was introduced to the concept of LOTS (least order thinking skills) and HOTS. The concepts of the study were interesting.  It is during the discussion, i realized that baring very few institutes most Indian institutes lack HOTS

Lot of our education system rarely focus on

  • Dismantling the a problems into parts - Analysis
  • Build a new output from different types in inputs - Synthesis
  • Check different ideas & solutions and then compare - Evaluate
Check more about the blooms taxonomy here ?

Do you agree about the role of teacher?
Do you agree that our education system lacks HOTS?

A fantastic individual i met

I had a roomie who used to shout vociferously every time he saw any games especially cricket. He also used to yell a lot of other interesting stuff but folks around him usually got annoyed. But he had big proportion of people who thought he was fantastic. He was famous with the name “Fantastico”. Detractors perverted fantastico and called him ‘sarcastico’. But fantastico was in demand when we needed a strong cheer leader and some inspirational talks. Lot of juniors saw him as a fantastic person and consulted him since they were inspired by him.

Being his roommate, I always observed him very closely. Here are some observation which set him apart from us
  • He believed in himself: To make others think you are fantastic you need to accept as true that you are fantastic. If you have little self-confidence it is doubtful that you will be able to be fantastic anytime.
  • He was fantastic to others: If you serve others and put them first, everyone will start to notice you 
  • Be exciting: One thing that sets fantastic people apart is the fact they are great to talk to and are always around. A good way to do this is to meet people while they are walking around your office or college environment and show great excitement while waving your arms around.
  • Smile and be confident. If you don't feel happy or confident, fake it 'till you make it!
  • Live and breathe being fantastic. Do not ever stop. Anyone can pretend to be fantastic for some of days, but real fantastic person behaves the same way irrespective of any problem he/she faces.
Shortly after we passed out of school, I stopped hearing him yell. But Fantastico was a fantastic person and I was more curious about him then was needed. As we were leaving the hostel, I saw him talking to his image in the mirror. He was terrible and murmuring.

I stood unsure of next step. As my friends came by my thought process got deviated. Later I never bothered to find out what was going on his life. After few months passed, I heard that my roommate had had tried to kill himself, and someone had admitted him to the nearby Government hospital.
I was feeling guilty of ignoring him that day. I was unhappy and rather than visiting hospital, I decided to move on. As time passed, I grew older and was working in a industry. The stress had captured me and I did not want to disturb my family with my problems. Hence, I contacted a counsellor. When I went to meet him, he smiled and said hi. Wow ! It was my school room-mate Fantastico. I was shocked and happy. Two emotions when they mix, it is difficult to decide which one to show.

We talked for long on how he had moved on from the last day of schhol with the help of a counselor who not only helped him with his further studies but also helped him get a good job. He also showed me his family pictures. I was happy and the guilt sitting hidden inside me was done. I was happy, and with the help of my room-mate, I recovered enough to distress myself.
Fantastico and i live in same city, and often, especially during college gatherings and frequent cricket matches. I hear frequent yelling, “Shut up!Fantastico”! or “Come on!Fantastico”

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.
