Latest model of Zigzag coconut car launched in India
Human mind is the creator and the destroyer. Man invented wheels and started his journey towards innovation that is still continued in the latest cars, trains and all other means of transport that we can see today. Gadgets and most modern computers are been embedded into the vehicles to support and protect the human race and preserve its existence. They are all planned, designed, modelled, created and maintained by humans with some forces supported by Mother Nature. Still the last words are mother nature and this post is intended to introduce a means of transport that most of us forget or might have the memories buried deep under the hundredth rack of our mind-cupboards.
I came from home after attending the marriage of my friend, eating delicious food prepared by my lovely mother and become busy with the daily work and friends. I did not get time to blog or rather I should say I did not find the time to blog being lazy.
I visited home this weekend and found an interesting means of transportation that I saw last during my childhood. This is a transportation children in India have discovered for their enjoyment. I call this a “zigzag coconut car” of children that still exists from medieval times to today, 2009. It does not have any sophisticated wheels or additional attachments but everything is natural.
I saw Akhil screeching at the entrance of the house. I rushed towards it and found that was a noise emerged due to the excitement and enjoyment he was experiencing. He was sitting on a vehicle that was been pulled by Appu from the other end. The vehicle started moving forward and approached me in a slow but majestic manner. It was a simple vehicle but the children made it appear interesting and worth watching. I named it zigzag coconut vehicle. Zigzag word was added to its name due to the turning property it possesses.
The construction of the Zigzag coconut car is very simple. It consists of a flat bed seat with a straight handle having spiked designs. Don’t be astonished with the description. Zigzag Coconut car is a small branch of a coconut tree that has a flat surface at the edge that holds the tree with leaves connecting it to its top in a decreasing manner. I remember the class of microprocessor in engineering where we used to study the construction of Intel chips described in a similar manner.
Though we might feel this childish at this age but still there is a hidden child within each of us that understands its existence through such incidents. I still wish I could be small and forget the tensions and the expectations I have from living entities surrounding me.
