Origin Of 101 Everyday Things
by Seema Gupta

There are so many things scattered around us which we use everyday without giving a single thought about their origin. Have you ever wondered where have these things come from? Think of that pen in your hand, it has not fallen from the sky into your hand, or that television which entertains you, was not there when this earth was formed. The eraser, pencil, shoes, chair, table and there are so many other things in our lives which are the successful outcomes of research going on for centuries. The hard work and dedication of these inventors and discoverers has gone into making these things. They worked day and night, laboured under unfavourable conditions to bring these things in our lives.

Today we call them backward because they did not have so many electronic gadgets to help them whereas we call ourselves technologically advanced since we have all the means and machines. But could we have all this without their efforts? The answer is simply 'no'. So it is our duty to continue this tradition of inventing and discovering new things by keeping our eyes and ears open and also by learning from the past experiences of these great men and understanding their ways of working.

Our book 'Origin of 101 Everyday Things' is here to present the horoscope of 101 selected things, which you use everyday. Our book is different from other books in its contents.

The colourful display of pictures and swift narrative interests all age groups transporting you in an era of invention and discoveries.
