India is said to be land of cricket even though it’s not our national game. Crazy devotees of cricket who treat cricket as a religion are found in every corner of the country. Indian’s love for the sports is manifested in their love for cricket. Many people are involved with the game, some play, some by cover the matches,some stick to their TVs,some to stadiums.Then there are few people who serve the game with unique skills and never ending passion towards the game.
The young lad from Pune, Mahesh Ranasube, now shaping the weapons of various famous top level cricketers. Mahesh has now become a go-to man for revamping cricket bats. The bat-smith who now recently gave a finishing touches to the bats of run machine Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Manish Pandey, Shikhar Dhawan apart from Ben Stokes and Joe Root among others.
Ranasube, a club-level medium pacer and still practices at PYC Hindu Gymkhana, has tried his hand on bats ever since childhood. “I used to tape damaged bats, which later helped me repair my own bats when I started playing with leather ball,’ shared Ranasubhe. His childhood passion now emerged him as the only one professional bat repair in the city now!
Mending a bat needs some cricketing knowledge and experience to understand stroke, balance and weight. Revamping a bat changes based on these and preferences of individual. Mahesh didn’t get any professional training for this. He expertise himself from learning and doing this passionately. He perfected the art starting with plain wood to later mastering into professional bats after he started playing with the leather ball.
Started his work station at the garage of small residential building in Shukravar Peth, now has had the place on rent at FC road. What made him to get called by international players? He responded in saying “I used to work on Kedar Jadhav’s bat and he was quite happy with my work. He recommended my name to Dhoni and that’s how most of the players gave me their assignment. I’m grateful to Kedar dada”. Current Maharashtra state player Rahul Tripathi have been widely recommending Ranasube’s work to most of national and international players which helps him get more assignments. Now he’s well known to team players and they call when they need.
Before the match that was happened last time in Pune, Ranasube got an opportunity to mend 12 bats from both team India and England. His work was very much appreciated by former skipper Dhoni and at such level that he gave his four bats to mend. It includes the chiseling of handle and curved the bottoms since they had become flat. “Dhoni’s bat need a bit of extra work, while those of other players required minor touch ups here and there” said Ranasube. Virat Kohli got two bats repaired.
Bat repairing requires so much of procedure including pressing, oiling, knocking, taping and bottom shaping etc. The players were aware of that and when they asked him for charges, Mahesh was too shy to charge the Team India players and others too. But Root and Stokes couldn’t stop themselves from rewarding the fella. Root gave him his batting gloves while Stokes insisted that he accept Rs. 2000 in cash for return of his service. “I was not doing this for money, since more bat belongs to Indian players and serving them made me feel patriotic. Apart from Dhoni, Kohli and Jadhav, I also worked on Manish Pandey, Jadeja’s bat,” said Ranasube.
Since the bat making and refurbishing was his passion, he took it as full time. “We faced a huge loss and family had a massive loan to pay. It came upon me to support my family and now passion helping me get that fulfilled,” he said. A commerce graduate, now looking to take his passion to bigger level. He want make a professional bat manufacturing company. “It looks tough, but not impossible. Right now, I’ve a lot of work and I’m finding myself difficult to manage alone. I want to do this on all-India level and then eventually start manufacturing the best bats”, said Ranasube.
All about perseverance rover, NASA’s mission to mars.
Perseverance rover is one in all the foremost explorer which landed on mars as part of NASA’s ongoing 2020 mars missions. The rover was launched in July and executed its landing on 18th February. The rover has travelled a distance of 293 million miles to achieve mars since its landing on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on July 20. Perseverance isn’t just another rover mission. Perseverance is taken into account to be the foremost advanced and costliest rover sent to mars. NASA had invested around $2.4 Billion to make and launch the mission. Another $300 million is anticipated to be spent so as to keep up the operational qualities within the rover.
The rover could be a size of a tiny low car, weighing around one ton and is ten feet long by 9 feet tall. It even contain some external equipment. First, it’s harboured a singular instrument called the MOXIE or Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment. MOXIE was an instrument designed to provide oxygen on Mars by transmogrifying the carbonic acid gas molecules present within the Martian atmosphere.
The second major equipment harboured by the rover which can be the cornerstone of human existence on mars in upcoming years; ISRU. ISRU means in place Resource Utilization: or the employment of local resources to fulfil human needs or requirements of the spacecraft. Without ISRU, exploration of Mars within the future decades are going to be incredibly expensive and thereby impossible. ISRU’s ain objective is to initialize the basin human demands for the long run astronauts who will visit mars. If astronauts need to carry oxygen or water or rocket propellent for his or her journey for a two-year journey to Mars and back, the price are going to be understandably excessive. In a way, this is often almost like a traveller from New Delhi having to hold their own oxygen, food supplies and aircraft fuel for a two-year stay in New York: the price per passenger are going to be incredibly high.
If oxygen are often successfully extracted on Mars in some significant scale, this will have two direct advantages: first, the oxygen are often used for human visitors to Mars, and second, the oxygen will be wont to manufacture propellant for the return journey. Thus, if the technology demonstration is successful, NASA can easily proportion the oxygen generation rate per day for MOXIE by 100 times: this could be of great use for a future human mission to Mars.
Third, Perseverance will carry Ingenuity, the primary ever helicopter to fly Mars. this can be the primary time NASA will fly a helicopter on another planet or satellite. Ingenuity may be a technology demonstration: the challenge, of course, is to fly the helicopter within the thin atmosphere of Mars. sort of a drone Earth, a Mars helicopter can help in rover drive planning and in fetching samples from locations that the rover cannot safely drive to. If this technology demonstration is successful, we’ll see a greater role for such helicopters in future missions.
Fourth, Perseverance is that the planned commencement to bring back rock samples from Mars for analysis in sophisticated laboratories on Earth: with the goal of searching for biosignatures: or signatures of present or past life. Perseverance will collect samples and a second rover mission will fly within a decade to assist transport the rock samples back to Earth.
The analysis of Martian rocks on Earth will likely provide a reliable indication of whether life on Mars is possible within the past or at this time.
What will the perseverance do ?
Perseverance is that the opening move in an exceedingly multi-step project to bring samples back from Mars. The study of the returned rock samples in sophisticated laboratories everywhere the planet will hopefully provide a decisive answer on whether life existed on Mars within the past.
Here are the steps within the Sample Return:
As the start, Perseverance will collect rock and soil samples in 43 cigar-sized tubes. The samples are collected, the canisters are sealed, and left on the bottom.
The second step is for a Mars Fetch Rover (provided by the eu Space Agency) to land, drive, and collect all samples from the various locations, and return to the lander.
The Fetch Rover will then transfer the canisters to the Ascent Vehicle. The Mars Ascent Vehicle will meet with an Orbiter after which the Orbiter will carry the samples back to Earth.
This long-term project is termed MSR or Mars Sample Return. MSR will revolutionise our understanding of the evolutionary history of Mars. If MSR is successfully executed, we are going to have an inexpensive answer of whether there was microscopic life on Mars.
But MSR does have its risks. If one in every of the components fails, just like the Fetch Rover or the Mars Ascent Vehicle, MSR is doomed. A hidden risk is strategic. At the price of MSR, there can be 5-10 spacecraft missions to different parts of the solar system: so hence, by choosing MSR, NASA forecloses the choice to undertake those other missions.

Pushing the limits: Two youngsters on their way to the journey of 11000 km on a bicycle across INDIA
We all once in life have had a thought of taking a long ride on a bicycle but unfortunately most of the time it fade away. But there are some people around us who has such dedication and run vigorously to accomplish what they thought of. Yes I’m talking about a cycle ride which is on the way peddling across the different 65 cities of India including 14 states covering a total distance of 11000Kms!!! Waooo….even I’m feeling such a thrill while writing this.
Two youngsters from Maharashtra, Sunil Thorat (Aurangabad) and Santosh Balgir (Latur) pushing the peddles relentlessly on roads of different terrains which not only covering a physical distance but conquering their limits and pushing them each time attaining the milestones.
Sunil and Santosh started this journey on December 18, 2020 from the Latur district of Maharashtra. And now after 39 days of a ride they successfully reached to the southern boundary of India, Kanyakumari. So far they’ve covered a total distance of around 2250Kms. They have decided to compelte this ride in 140 days! Take a bow Brothers…this is insane!! They are literally doing an astounding task which is not everyone’s cup of tea.
When asked by the paradox team about the sole purpose behind this ride, two youngsters told that they are doing this spread an awareness of “Conservation and Preservation of Word heritage and Historical monuments”.
Also they are dedicating this great ride to the defense personnel of our country. A noble gesture to show their gratitude for our defense sectors.
They’ve started their journey with limited sources of finance. Raised money from friends and family. Most importantly they emphasized on how some great people from Government officials to Radio, media and educational fields came and standing behind them. Also during ride various strangers coming and helping them anyway they can. This is the beuty of Humanity. People are seeing their mania and hardwork, becoming helping hands for their journey!
They are now heading towards their journey on the Northern parts of India. Here’s the map of ride. They named this ride, “BharatBhraman- a ride across India”
By keeping their passion alive and feeding them with such a great motive, these boys vigorously pushing themselves hard. This is not less than a big valour. The valour of dedication, passion and strength. You guys literally an inspiration to many.
They also remarkably said, “Its not only we, achieving this dream but each of them who once had or have a thought to attempt such adventure.” So the dream is no longer just theirs, it is a dream of many others.
