Many interestings things are all around us, just we need to take out little time and observe them!!!

Life is So Busy we have to priotize things, but some times Why dont we just walk out and observe things around us, It can be just for fun, but its for sure while enjoying the activity we can get lots of take aways, may be unintentionally..

I have been walking through the streets, going all over the places but till we were given assignment to bring pictures of any kind of innovations done by common people to get alternative solutions, I had never observed things closely,
This activity was fun, all we have to do was just to click pictures by moving wherever we want to, but during that we have seen many small problems faced by people, interacted with them for why can't they afford solutions etc. So apart from having fun, unintentionally we have gained an idea of our own surroundings.
Colleges/Schools/Companies can actually start such kind of fun activities once in a while, which not only will make people to observe their surroundings and some may get motivated to do something to do for them.

Nice one, Rajesh. One of my favourite things on regular visits to India is to hunt out street-level innovations. I've posted some that you & others might like to check out on the REculture bog: http://postconsumption.posterous.com/tag/meena Excited to hear you were given an assignment to get out an engage with these kinds of solutions.
