row upon row of hexagonal basalt columns (Source: Thinkstock images) Related News Just ahead of me a line of bikes flies down a public road Straddling the fierce 1200 cc motorcycles are leather-clad bikers all with their visors down The road racers are revving up on an epic track that sidles along the turbulent Atlantic coast and loops past cliff faces and glens Often labelled a death cult for its frequent tragic outcomes motorbike racing is still wildly popular on this idyllic coastline I am on Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coastal Route that stretches for 120 miles connecting Belfast with Derry-Londonderry Zigzagging through County Antrim the Coastal Route has effervescently green hamlets lighthouses castles and other tourist spoils This is Liam Neeson country my licensed Blue Badge driver and tour guide tells me and jokes that I am free to imagine him as Neeson’s facsimile minus the actor’s drop-dead looks Tracing the water’s edge we drive along a wind-whipped terrain to land up in Carrickfergus Castle a Norman Irish castle on the northern shore of the sea inlet Belfast Lough Owing to its proximity to the sea the castle has been stamped with Scottish Irish English and French invasions An unexpected historical find for mainstream tourists this medieval structure which once functioned as a strategic garrison was built in 1177 and boasts of a small bailey or castle courtyard a high polygonal curtain wall and other structures that take hours to appreciate As I explore the military legacy of some of Europe’s strongest imperialist forces I am hurled back into history Carrickfergus Castle was also the first stepping stone in Ireland for King William III widely known as William of Orange monarch of England Ireland and Scotland He chalked his name on the list of the fort’s powerful occupants in 1690 A statue of William of Orange in full military regalia is now stationed atop a rock right outside the castle Very soon we wind our way to Glenarm Village the first of nine glens moored along the Antrim Coast Road Arguably the oldest chartered town in Ulster the village has retained its historic street pattern and boasts of The Glenarm Conservation Area with over 50 listed buildings The village’s most famous house of course is the Glenarm Castle a Jacobean style mansion that’s home to Viscount and Viscountess Dunluce and their family To witness the walled garden inside Glenarm Castle is to be swept up in the currents of Northern Ireland’s history It was a time when lush gardens existed as magical spaces inside expansive estates thriving from the early 1800s until the beginning of the 20th century From a spiral-shaped mound inside Glenarm Castle’s walled garden I take in the view In front of me the grounds stretch out like a series of interlinking rooms On one side are herb fruit and flower gardens with giant tulips and beyond the tulips are blooming cherry trees If one is lolling about in this corner of Europe it is difficult to forget that a majority of the filming locations of HBO’s wildly popular Game of Thrones lies here A few hours later I arrive at the Carrick-a- Rede Rope Bridge a tiny speck fusing the mainland with Carrickarede island across a 30m-deep gorge The story goes that local fisherfolk used to erect a rudimentary rope bridge with the aim of crossing over to the island to inspect their salmon nets Things have changed since then The dangerously frail walkway of yore has been replaced by a double hand-railed rope bridge operated by the National Trust these days County Antrim definitely helps imagine worlds you have never seen One of its major highlights is the Cushendun Caves which took shape over a piffling period of 400 million years when extreme weather conditions and coastal erosion joined hands These caves — pebbles embedded in old red sandstone rock — have also been the site of a crucial Game of Thrones sequence Northern Ireland offers everything from conflict sites and postcard-worthy villages to pubs and museums But the one thing that will stretch your mind and make you believe in every single travel cliché is the Giant’s Causeway which spreads across six km of the northern coast of Northern Ireland The country’s flagship offering to the tourism world Giant’s Causeway is actually row upon row of hexagonal basalt columns brought to life by a geological accident Estimated to be over 60 million years old these stone pillars took shape when molten lava rapidly solidified upon sudden contact with water But as with most geographical wonders the folk tales surrounding them are way more colourful than cold hard facts Giant’s Causeway too has the magic fable of a giant Finn McCool as its narrative backbone When Finn picked up a fight with the Scottish giant Benandonner who lived across the sea he hurled pieces of the Antrim coast into the water The hexagonal walkway thus created offered Finn the perfect excuse to cross over to Scotland and invite Benandonner for a slugfest Upon reaching his Scottish opponent’s hideout Finn realised how grossly he had underestimated Benandonner’s size and retraced his steps immediately The Scot followed him back to Antrim but not before Finn’s wife disguised him as a baby Once Benandonner took a look at the giant child he beat a hasty retreat thinking about the invincibility of the father Stories like these elevate even the most routine travel experiences in Northern Ireland It is as easy to be seduced here by the stunning prehistoric landscapes as it is to get lost in ancient castles where time slows down to a delicious

Updated: May 1 2017 2:45 pm Researcher in the US looked at a sea worm called Nereis virens in order to create a material which has the ability to be flexible or rigid at convenience (Source: Wikimedia Commons) Related News Scientists have used a synthesised protein to develop a new material that can get as hard as human bones or as flexible as gelatin depending on the environment around it an advance which may be used in the development of sensors “The material is a hydrogel made from a synthesised protein similar to the one that makes up the jaw of the Nereis virens sea worm and which gives it structural stability and impressive mechanical performance” said Martin-Martinez from Massachusetts Institute of Technology “When we change the ions of the environment and the salt concentration the material expands or contracts” Martinez saidResearchers including those from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US looked at a sea worm called Nereis virens in order to create a material which has the ability to be flexible or rigid at convenience The jaw of this worm has a texture similar to gelatin but if the environment varies the material may adopt the hardness of dentin or human bones researchers saidThe team found that at the molecular level the structure of protein material is strengthened when the environment contains zinc ions and certain pH indexes Also Read:New soft robot can keep your heart beating The Zinc ions create chemical bonds with the structure of the compound These bonds are reversible and can form or break at convenience making the material more dynamic and flexible researchers said”Its ability to contract and expand makes it especially suited to creating devices that work as muscles for so-called soft robots which are made of polymers” Martinez said “It could also be used in the development of sensors that do not need to use external power supplies and control devices for complex electronic systems” he saidThe

recent spate of crimes in Delhi against people from Manipur has reminded us how unsafe our capital can be for people from northeastern India It was only a few weeks ago when a prayer meeting was convened at Jantar Mantar to condole the death of 30-year-old Manipuri man Akha Salouni Present at the rally was the mother of Nido Tania the young Arunachali boy whose death shocked the nation earlier this year Grieving at the loss of another son of the soil her shrill question “ab aur kitno ko maroge” made us realise how little has changed since Nido’s death Since Salouni’s death national media have reported several other cases where people from the Northeast have been unfairly targeted and attacked in Delhi and Gurgaon But violence and crime in the Northeast have often featured prominently in newspapers and TV channels Familiar stories revolve around the theme of guns power cuts bad roads insurgents and bandhs The media is quick to headline attacks on railway stations bandh calls by student groups protests or lack of infrastructure The region is perceived as a place where nothing seems to be going right This leads to apprehension in most people about visiting the region Even after a decade with a stable political and economic climate most people in Delhi still ask if it is safe to travel to or establish a businessin Assam Yet an alternate story does exist and it needs to be told While attacks against Manipuri people in Delhi seem to be on the rise Manipuri sportspersons brought medals to India at the Commonwealth Games One of India’s most celebrated sportswomen Mary Kom has become a national icon and now the whole country will watch her story on screen when the biopic on her life releases in theatres In Nagaland the perception of Northeast India
