Subject: [AI] Walking stick with some difference

> Friends,
> A week back, I saw an advertisement from www.homeshop18.com about this 
> walking stick basically meant for the elderly persons. Out of curiosity 
> and also because my old age is not too far, I ordered for one. Yesterday, 
> I received the product. It's very strong with a good grip and can be 
> broken into pieces. It has a torch built in the grip and a small button 
> which makes the grip vibrate and massage the palm. My common sense says 
> that this massage should help us keep our palm and fingers in good shape 
> and counter the bad impact of using keyboard for long hours which many of 
> you discussed a few weeks back. A part of the grip can be unlocked and 
> rotated to work as hand charger for supporting the torch and the massager. 
> This stick is also adjustable in length by about 1 to 4 inches. However 
> the tip of the stick is made of rubber and so it may not work as a good 
> mobility device for those who use white cane for walking on the road and 
> for differentiating between different type of surfaces. As I use white 
> cane for limited durations and in known/predictable areas, I am fine with 
> the hard rubber tip.
> I am going to use this cane during my forthcoming expedition to Aid 
> Kailash (16500 ft. above sea level) from September 14-30 along with Ms. 
> Bachendri Pal, the first Indian lady to climb The Everest. I will not have 
> to carry a torch with additional cells as required from all participants 
> and the strong rubber tip should also prove to be an advantage in the 
> mountain where in any case I will be a part of 24 member team. The 
> massager should also come handy during tough times.
> This stick costs INR. 2000 and as mentioned earlier, is available from 
> www.homeshop18.com
