What an effort....

.
Some of you visitors might have seen, similar pics earlier...anyhow, this is just for a relook







See, how merrily those children and cat are playing with those well built structures...It is a sort of happiness, isn't it?

After looking into the above marvellous work, I also tried to assemble few at my home. My target was to make a Pyramid of atleast 2 rows using 9 cards. I couldn't even start with two cards... The end results are just the display as below...



Lessons learnt:
1) Don't under-estimate others efforts & results...
2) Each Effort has its own technique which cannot be copied easily...
3) Do what you know with the cards (!!!) ... don't be over-ambitious

Gayathri...

100% true.. they should hv had enormous amount of patience.., since it may collapse while in the middle of the construction.

Kaps, Ansh

Definitely you will be considered for next round..

Hi Ram,
Nice Pictures. I had seen this guy do it in Good Morning America. It was amazing. He does it with such speed and concentration, it is great.
