There are no limits and when you are passionate about something. Meet Mr. Ravi Hongal for whom the love for photography has shaped his dream house into a massive DSLR camera.
He has gone ahead and built a house that looks like a camera in the state of Karnataka’s Belagavi city and it is breaking the internet.
Mr. Ravi Hongal is 49 years old and is a photographer for the last 33 years. His love for photography is well known in the neighborhood but after this new house is completed he is getting a lot of attention from locals as well as media.
Mr. Hongal says building the house wasn’t an easy task. “I love photography and camera and everything related to it. Over the years a lot has changed in the area, but my love for it remains the same”.
It was a long term dream that one day he will build a house that will look like a giant camera. But he needed finance as well as help from Engineers and architects to complete his own “Taj Mahal”.
The house is called “Click” and it has names of his three sons engraved to it. Sounds crazy but
A railing of one of the balconies is shaped as a reel also there is a big 35 mm reel that is designed to enhance the looks of the front side of the house.
There is a large DSLR lens with a lens cover and on top of it, there is flash mounted at the front side of the house. Also, you can spot a memory card and the roll film on the front side of the house. Even there is a camera shutter on the main gate.
Hats Off to Mr. Ravi Hongal! That’s the way to do it!
China Hits Back, Won’t Use Windows in Govt Offices
13-December 2019 – In the latest feud between China and the US, China is planning to strike the US with a ban on Windows software in its government offices, reports FT.
China is planning to stop the use of Windows software in the next 3 years in its government offices and even wants to curb the usage of American hardware.
This means China will also stop using laptops and computers made by Americal companies in the offices.
According to the publication, the Chinese government will replace 30% of Windows PC in 2020, 50% in 2021 and remaining next year.
Considering the US Ban on the Chinese sweetheart Huawei, this was expected from the protectionist Chinese government.
On the other hand, the American warrior Donald Trump is planning to blacklist several Chinese companies in the field of AI, especially dealing with public data or facial recognition.
Even big companies like Hikvison that deals in security cameras and even has a significant presence in India is getting a stick from the US president.
It is yet to be seen when the Chinese Communist Party goes after the wealthy US phone maker Apple and creates issues for the company.
The only hurdle in doing so is that a huge volume of iPhones are made in China and can the Chinese afford to shoot themselves in the foot by going against the Cupertino giant.
