YOUNG CHANGE-MAKER: In Focus - Ayush Chopra


Hello Folks! Wishing you and your family the best of health.

We are back with our young changemakers series, where we share stories of young enthusiastic people who are striving to bring about positive change. Over the past decade, with globalization going local, we have a glocal-community building up, which is proactive for global concerns within their local peripheries. The catalyst in this growth has been majorly the ‘medium of internet’ and the drivers of this catalyst are the ‘Netizens’ or a tribe of Young Adults who are ready to be the change-makers by driving positive-activism across the globe.

Not just to glorify, but to dig deeper into the making of these young change-makers, and also to see if we can join their tribe, we bring to you, our series ‘Young Change-Makers,’ which will bring to you stories of very special young enthusiasts who live a normal life like us, but are making a positive impact on the society with their work.

The last series was about Ishan Shah, a young Anti-Slavery Activist. Read it HERE!

The person in the spotlight now is Wizard Ayush Chopra.

A wizard with super powers might remind you of Mr. Potter or the Wizard from the Marvel Universe, but we are not talking about fiction here.

Why do fans have three blades?


Three-bladed fans are unique to the Indian Standards. Fans in the US or Canada generally have more than three blades. The reason lies in the kind of climate we live in. Read further to unravel the answer.
Read More

1) In the US or Canada where the climate is cold, every house has a centrally air-conditioned system. In those households, fans rotate at a slower pace to only provide secondary help to spread the cool air throughout the room. But in India, fans are the main sources of cooling. So, it comes with three blades to spread cool air to every corner of the room.


2) Another reason is that, the more blades a fan has, the more it will chop the air. Hence, its efficiency will reduce. However, a fan with three blades has a perfect balance, and so it can produce a good amount of air, to beat the scorching heat in the summer.

3) In the western countries, fans also do not have three blades because they are used with lighting fixtures and hence need to move slowly. But in India, the lighting and the fans are done separately for every household. Hence, they have three blades mainly.

Do you have fans with more blades than three in your house? Let me know.

Dolphins are, hands down, some of the cutest beings on planet earth. However, that’s far down on the list of things that make them so special. Evolutionary biologists, zoologists, and veterinarians have long been fascinated by our marine, mammalian friends because of the complexity in their anatomical make-up, intricate behavioural characteristics, and other features, some of which we’ll discuss in this article.

Read More


1) Intelligence - Dolphins are very intelligent beings. This is demonstrated by their proficiency in problem-solving, quick learning abilities, mimicry, and portrayal as well as an understanding of human emotions like grief, joy, anger, etc.


2) Sentience - Research has shown that dolphins are, indeed, sentient, i.e, self aware. They can actually recognise themselves in a mirror!

3) Echolocation - Dolphins use a complex system of echolocation to hunt for their prey. Although used by bats as well, echolocation is an extremely useful way of “seeing” the world in a place where “normal” vision would otherwise be extremely obscured.


4) Rest - Dolphins can’t afford to rest like humans or other terrestrial animals do, lest they should drown. They rest by switching off one side of their brain at a time. This helps them conserve energy.

5) Altruism - Dolphins are known to be altruistic animals which aren’t limited by their species barrier. Besides helping their own kind in need/danger, dolphins have been recorded to help other animals and even humans! Friendly sort, aren’t they?

To sum up, dolphins are awesome and should not be kept in human captivity except for the need of conservation of species.

In these troubles we have today
I have something to say
Maybe these days feel long
As a country we have to stand strong
Lockdown everywhere, everyone at home
There is no place to roam
Markets are shut
Big lock on Pizza Hut
No movie theatres to go
But the courage is not low
We will fight together
But don’t keep any get-together
Don’t come out. Please, please
Unless you have some urgent needs
Animals and birds are wandering out
We are having our classes on Hangout
Don’t panic. Be at home
STAY SAFE, STAY HOME
