Unlike conventional swimming pools natural swimming pools are more nature friendly and pleasing in nature. Nature lovers would love the idea of having a natural swimming pool as it is free from chemicals and also supports wildlife. Plants present in a natural swimming pool act as a natural filter thereby eliminating the use of chemicals and costly filters for purification. Also the equipment required for these pools are much less compared to normal swimming pools.

Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium in effect, gardening under water. Aquascape designs include a number of distinct styles, including the garden-like Dutch style and the Japanese-inspired nature style. Typically, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it is possible to create an aquascape with plants only, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants.

It is a very interesting hobby and fun to watch the fish in the aquarium, effort is always made to make the aquascape look as natural as possible and make a miniature ecosystem like appearance.

A mountain like appearance of underwater aquarium, it looks like a mountain

The Iguazu falls is one of the most magnificent waterfalls anyone might have ever seen, this falls consists of over 275 falls varying between 60 to 82 meters height, this is a must watch place for nature lovers. The iguazu falls were formed as a result of an volcanic eruption, which left a large crack on the earth.  During the rainy season of November - March, the rate of flow of water going over the falls may reach 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic m) per second.

Here are some pics of this magnificent falls.

Worlds Rarest Animals

Sorry Friends for staying away for such a long time but now i'm back with some interesting stuff, lets have a look at some of the rarest animals in the world...
these photos are captured by national geographic photographers












There are many more endagered species in the world which require attention from us, if we dont take any step to protect such endagered creatures our ecosystem will be robbed off its valuable diversity and cause ecological imbalance, so its our duty to protect them and save our eco system...

Construction Equipment - 1

Construction equipment is a series of blogs in which I would be sharing with you about the equipments which are used in civil engineering works. Most of us dont know about these machines and I hope you will find it interesting to know more about them :) Most of the equipment I'm going to share are the products of Caterpillar also known as CAT. This company is very famous worldwide for its high quality engineering products.

An articulated vehicle is a vehicle which has a permanent or semi-permanent pivoting joint in its construction, allowing the vehicle to turn more sharply. There are many kinds of articulated vehicles, from heavy equipment to buses, trams and trains. Steam locomotives were sometimes articulated in that the driving wheels could pivot around turns.
In a broader sense, any vehicle towing a trailer could be described as articulated (the word articulated comes from the Latin articulus : small joint). In the UK, the term "articulated lorry" refers to the combination of a tractor and a semi-trailer, abbreviated to "artic". In the U.S., this is called a semi-trailer truck, "tractor-trailer" or "semi-truck" and would not necessarily be called articulated

CAT 740B

A backhoe loader, also called a loader backhoe, digger, or colloquially shortened to backhoe, is a heavy equipment vehicle that consists of a tractor fitted with a shovel/bucket on the front and a small backhoe on the back. Due to its (relatively) small size and versatility, backhoe loaders are very common in urban engineering and small construction projects (such as building a small house, fixing urban roads, etc..).

CAT 450E

A cold planer (also known as a pavement planer, pavement recycler, mill or asphalt milling machine or roto-mill) is a construction machine used to remove bituminous pavement or asphalt concrete from roadways, resulting in a somewhat rough, even surface that can be immediately opened to traffic. This is accomplished by bringing a rotating mandrel or "head" into contact with the pavement at an exact depth or slope. The mandrel has hundreds of hardened spikes on its surface, which bite and tear away at the roadway's surface. The surface material that is removed is normally fed by conveyor into a dump truck or semi trailer, but can be left in place or wind rowed to be removed at a later date or recycled. A water spray system provides cooling for the mandrel, as well as dust management.

CAT PM 201

A track loader is an engineering vehicle consisting of a tracked chassis with a loader for digging and loading material. The history of track loaders can be defined by three evolutions of their design. Each of these evolutions made the track loader a more viable and versatile tool in the excavation industry. These machines are capable in nearly every task, but master of none. A dozer, excavator, or wheel loader will out perform a track loader under a set of conditions, but the ability of a track loader perform almost every task on a job site is why it remains a part of many companies' fleets.

CAT 299 C

A compactor is a machine or mechanism used to reduce the size of waste material or soil through compaction. A trash compactor is often used by homes and businesses to reduce the volume of trash.
Normally powered by hydraulics, compactors take many shapes and sizes. In landfill sites for example, a large bulldozer with spiked wheels called a landfill compactor is used to drive over waste deposited by waste collection vehicles (WCVs).

CAT 836 H

Hope you liked the first set of Construction Equipment, I will soon be adding the construction equipment 2 watch out for more...

India Tower

India Tower (previously known as the Park Hyatt Tower; also known as the Dynamix Balwas Tower or DB Tower) is a supertall skyscraper that is under construction in the city of Mumbai in Maharashtra, India. If completed as proposed, the 125-storey tower would stand 720 m (2,360 ft) high, and would become the world's second-tallest skyscraper, after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The Dynamix Balwas realtor group first proposed the project, under the name of Park Hyatt Tower, in 2008. The Dynamix proposal would have been an 85-storey tower with a height of 301.1 metres (988 ft). The project was subsequently dropped, before being revived and amended in 2010. In January 2010, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation authorised the tower's construction on a site located on Charni Road in Marine Lines, just north of Mumbai's historical district.

the picture shown above is not the real picture its a proposed model picture expected to be completed by 2016. lets hope India completes this building soon enough.

Honjo Masamune : The legendary Japanese Sword

The Honjo Masamune is a ritually forged, ancient Japanese katana with a blade so perfectly balanced and aligned that it splits light, rendering its wielder invisible.

• The sword was forged by Gorō Nyūdō Masamune, and is said to have kept the ruling shogunate in power for hundreds of years by making them invincible in battle.
• Artie claims that the beauty of the sword rests not in its appearance, but in the way was originally forged. He waxes poetic when he says "it was a hammered and folded blade, with millions of layers of steel and a carbon content that's right off the charts. And each layer only atoms – atoms thick."
• It was lost in history and the incomplete blade was rediscovered at a dig site in Okinawa, Japan in 2009.
• The blade is so perfectly forged that its balanced and alignment make it possible for light to split in its path and go around the person holding it, rendering them invisible if the blade is held point up and directly in front of them.

• The idea of bending light was originally proposed by Sir Isaac Newton in 1704 at the end of his treatise on the nature of optics. Little was done with the idea until it was revived in 1911 by Albert Einstein when he wrote "On the Influence of Gravitation on the Propagation of Light" and which he continued to refine and correct into more a elegant theory through 1915 when he completed his general theory of relativity.

• The Honjo Masamune is one of the most controversial and important swords of Japan its current ware about are not known to anybody.

Here are some original pictures of the blade of Honjo Masamune

Undoubtedly the HONJO MASAMUNE is one of the most powerful, important and a legendary sword, such a sword could not be produced again, the skill and art used to produce such a wonderful sword is lost somewhere in history. It is a really amazing sword with amazing properties forged with amazing science, tradition and workmanship...
