Despite losing most of his right leg in a motorcycle accident, Zac Vawter (31) intends to climb all 103 flights of stairs at Chicago's Willis Tower this Sunday. He's been helping researchers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) test a cutting-edge bionic leg that is controlled by his own nerve impulses. He can walk, kick a ball, and climb stairs by simply thinking of what he wants his leg to do.
In Erode (Tamilnadu), there is a Hospital where the poor come for treatment. Opposite the Hospital, one Mr.Venkataraman, runs his Hotel business. He provides good meals at a cost of Rs.25/- to the general public. But, he charges only one Re.1/- per meal for 20 persons every day who come as escorts and attendents to the patients admitted in the Hospital, opposite. To ensure that only genuine attendents avail the one rupee meal, he takes the help of the Hospital Warden by requesting him to issue tokens to bonafide escorts of patients. Thus, deserving poor persons who are truly attending to the patients are helped.
