A wonderful achievement by a Pakistani Engineer who invented a water kit for the motor car engine. Yes! This happened in Pakistan, when a talented Pakistani who is a graduate of a low scaled educational institute of Khairpur, invented a water kit as a fuel source for the vehicles. His name is Engineer Agha Waqar, the inventor of water as fuel for vehicles who claims that his invention may be used in every type of auto mobile as the fuel source. And this is not a fantasy, according to Agha, now it will be possible to use water as the fuel for the auto mobiles. It took a period of more than three years for Agha and his team to make this dream come true. And for the last one year, Agha is running his car successfully by using this water kit.

What is the water kit invented by Agha?
This seems a real miracle, when you see the water kit. This is quite simple and no complicated mechanism is involved in this water kit. It includes a bubbler which contains water that filters the water. The bubbler will further create the water into the hydro gas and it will be transmitted into the main water kit that’ll enable the engine to run. The water kit will also be connected with the battery as it will create electrolysis process for making of fuel. The quantity of the water in the bubbler might be 1 to 1.5 liter but it shall be supported by a water tank of appropriate capacity. This is pertinent to mention that the water to be used in the water kit should be distilled water. Distilled water is free from many impurities that are removed after the distillation process. Distilled water is not much expensive but we have to install the distill plants at district levels.
This amazing distilled water will be having fantastic fuel consumption. With only 1 liter of distilled water, the small sized automobiles may run for 40 K.m and similarly the motorbikes may run for more than 130 K.m. The story never ends here, as the power generator of 1 KV capacity may also be run for two hours with 1 liter of distilled water. This water kit may be adjusted in the automobiles very easily; especially in the CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) based automobiles; you can operate the engine by only replacing the fuel pipes. According to Agha, this water kit will cost only 40Kto 50K Rs.
The performance of automobile
A big question may arise in the mind of the reader about the performance of the vehicle that will be run with water fuel. But you’ll be surprised to know that nobody can judge that the vehicle is running with any alternate fuel. This water kit may be adjusted in any common vehicle.
Agha Waqar and his team have undoubtedly become the pride of Pakistan. Agha seeks the proper attention and support from the authorities. His invention is a revolutionary step that will help to minimize the economic burden on a common user. But on the other end, this will infringe the stakes of the multinationals and the oil industry. In the past, whoever dared to invent such thing, he was either made silent or eliminated from the scene.
Engineer Agha Waqar Ahmed, the inventor of water as a fuel of vehicles deserves the right diligence and sincerity. His invention shall lead to an unexpected revolution in the human life that’ll be ultimately beneficial for our future generations. Let the efforts of Agha be not wasted and he must be protected from any danger.
Water flows rapidly downwards, drops over the stairs of cliffs and after falling, it splashes and the particles create phenomenal colors of rainbow. This is normally the child of a river and the water passes through many courses over many resistants. We are talking about ” Waterfall ” which is obviously the pearl of the scenic beauty of a mountain zone. In our lovely planet, earth, many types of waterfalls are existing like cascade, multi-step, frozen, block, horsetail and segmented etc.

There is no doubt about the awe-inspiring grace of the waterfalls which has impressed the humans to this extent that they have constructed the models of wterfalls in many buildings for embellishment. Waterfalls have also tremendous benefits for the humans and they are equally good for the biodiversity. Waterfalls provide oxygen to the aqua species and help many water supporting plants to grow fastly. For the generation of hydropower and energy, the waterfalls have exceptional significance. Waterfalls are considered as the metaphor of “Oneness” in the world of spirtuality. Their mind blowing appearance is a fantastic source of meditation and contemplation.
Following are the images of the famous and lovely waterfalls of the lovely planet;

Water Lakes are the water bodies that are usually surrounded by land and are normally found in the mountain areas, rift zones and glacial places. The reservoir of water in the lake may be either salty or fresh and it is different than the pond although both are water bodies. Ponds are smaller in their sizes as compare to lakes with no water flow and lakes are deeper than the ponds. Lakes are often fed with big streams and rivers having short-lived landscape features, as they tend to become silted up by sediment from the streams and rivers that feed them. Apart from natural lakes, in many countries of the world, there are many artificial lakes built for the irrigation of agricultural land, producing electricity and for industrial needs. The global ecological degradation has marked worst effect upon the water lakes as they are shrinking on a rapid rate. Some of the lakes in the world have tremendous importance for the environment of their respective area and some of them are famous for their extraordinary scenic beauty. Many beautiful lakes of the world have huge attraction for the visitors from all over the world and are considered as the real wonders of the nature. Here are some wonderful images of some beautiful lakes of the world;

The Parliament house of the Trinidad and Tobago is officially known as the Red House which is located in the center of the capital city Port of Spain. The Red House is the symbol of the political activities which is currently used as a meeting place for parliament. The classical architecture of the graceful Red House reminds us the Greek revival style. The structure was completely coated with red paint in 1897 when Trinidad was preparing to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. After this, the building was generally called as “The Red House”.

In 1903, the Red House caught fire after some political riots. This happened when on the same day, the legislative council was discussing about the new strategy of the distribution and payment for water in the town. A demonstration was held by the people who were opposing some of the clauses of the new ordinance. The people also threw stones and most of the window panes were broken and the ground floor was burnt. After this a bloody incident occurred when the police opened fire on the crowd. Sixteen people were killed and forty-two injured, and the Red House was completely gutted. After the fire only the shell of the original Red House remained.
