This people is a Hula Hoop!
I've wanted to learn how to twirl it for some time now, and i managed to get my hands on one today... But boy! It's tough!
Anlil' bit of history, the Hula Hoop has been around for a while now, gaining in popularity in the early 20th Century... It's apparently named after a popular Hawaiian dance form, famous for the 'hip shaking'!  It's a popular toy with kids, and for adults an effective form of exercise(especially for all of you cribbing about that adipose walking by your side )!!!
Well, I've bet I can do this, and I'm no Shakira... so well, it's a big ask!
But like the YouTube video i watched said, 'patience is the key'!!!
But, challenge accepted!
I'm on it guys, and shall master it over the next 3 months ;)!!!
Keep you posted!
  HAPPY HULA HOOPING!!!

All I wanted was to tally the change, finish the cursory submission work and head home. ‘One hundred and four’, rapt came the reply. This boy had a sharp mind. Pity he didn’t put it to much use but to place bets at the bar that he’ll shortly be heading over to; to intoxicate himself to the point where he can…

LET'S TALK ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS

The WHO defines Health "as a state of complete physical, mental and emotional well being and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity." And yet we often find ourselves paying heed only to any of these domains in solitude. Oft neglected are the domains of mental and emotional well being or rather, the lack of it.
As someone who is a fledgling in the study of Mental Health, I'd like to share my two pennies this World Mental Health Day.

THE MENTAL ILLNESS PANDEMIC
Mental illnesses have been known to humanity since time immemorial. Even the ancient Indian scholars described mental illnesses in the Charaka Samihita. 
Despite this, mental illnesses have been treated as perhaps being "not real" or "it's in your mind"! It was seen as something that a person who's fragile would develop. So you had to merely, "Man-up!" or "Grit it out"!
But it's only off late that India is waking up to mental illness. Mental illness is real …
