3D glasses are a vital component in current 3D display technology enabling stereoscopic vision and depth perception. We are able to perceive depth due to the fast that each of your eyes observes the same scene but at slightly different perspective. When the individual images being viewed by each eye, reaches our visual cortex, our brain automatically puts these images together and interprets information regarding the third dimension.
 
Thus, ultimately any 3D display technology will have to rely on using a method to deliver separate images (or views) of the same scene to each eye. 3D glasses provide a very simple and elegant approach to achieving this. The idea behind them is simple enough, each eye piece allows the images meant for the corresponding eye to pass through while blocking the images meant for the other eye.
 
3D Glasses can be divided into two technologies, Active and Passive. Active glasses are usually powered and involve moving or switchable element in the glasses that "actively" discriminate the incoming images so as to provide a different images to each eye. In direct contrast, passive glasses do not rely on any power or movable elements.  They usually rely on some special type of optical material that helps discriminate between the images meant for each eye. All 3D TVs manufactured have their own 3D glasses, pair or two of which are given free with each 3D TV set.

He was born on 20th January 1827. His teacher was Rev. Aruggamuwe Sri Rewatha Thero. Hikkaduwe Sri Sumangala Thero was a very clever student.

During this time, a group of monks came from Thailand (Siyam Rata). There was no one to speak with them in Pali language.  In Hikkaduwa, they met the little monk Sri Sumangala and spoke in Pali with them. The group of monks was very happy about this little monk and spoke about him everywhere they went. So the name Hikkaduwe Sri Sumangala Thero became very famous throughout the world.

After that, well to do Buddhists of the area decided that this clever little monk should be taught well. So he was handed over to the Rev. Walane Sri Siddharthe Thero of Parama Dhamma Chethiya Viharaya at Rathmalane.

Sri Sumangala Thero started the Vidyodaya Pirivena. Even the students from Europe came to this highly educated to learn Pali and Buddhism. Sumangala Thero was good in Sinhala, Pali, Sanskrit, English, Tamil, French and Rassian. His talents are evident in the books he written.

He was the chief incumbent of Sri Pada, Sanganayake of Galle area, deputy Chairman of Paramawinggnaratha Samagama. Rev. Sri Sumangala Thero died on the 29th April 1911.

The simple answer is either they are stored in our memory or we forget them. But this question makes us ask a great number of other questions.
  • What is the difference between day-dreaming and the dreams we have when we are sleep?
  • Can dreams foretell the future?
  • How long do they really last?
  • Do we have dreams in colour or only in black and white?
  • Why do we forget some dreams and remember others?
  • Are dreams good for us or bad?
  • Why do some dreams wake us up at once and other not?
Some experts say that to be healthy in mind, we have to dream every night, whether we remember or not.

There is a book called “An Experiment with Time” by J.W.Dunne, which tells us that the author used to note down in the morning , dreams he had in the night and that sometimes his dreams foretold what was going to happen in the future. He suggest that when we are wide awake our sense of time is vertical, so that we are aware only of the present moment, but when we are sleep, time becomes for us horizontal, so that we can travel into the past and the future.

Other experts say that we dream of doing the things which for various reasons, we cannot do in our waking hours. So we try to realize in our sleep wishes that cannot be realized by day.

The North, the East, the West and South,
Our fate, the truth, the situation moves the Earth, They say
The time has called for its last beckon
Dimes-worth our lives would be, when the lash comes as Satan,

Everyone of us hear the hopeless planets lament,
Mastery of techniques graph its closest fragment,
Still we feel the mystiques legends being latent,
And all would earn the probable calamity’s patent,

Freethinkers foretell that the time in remain so limited,
Freedom’s that we enjoy, is trudging along to its very end?
Free-hand’s not the measures,”2 Years”, let us misspend?
Free-wills, can we afford now, for our lives sense a cold descend,

Can a Myth or a Film, could ever bring forth what is truth?
Whether a fallacy inciting, but the possibilities are redolent,
Take-a-step at a length would not always guarantee success,
But can never help our lives yet we wait for “it”, being heedless.

Seasons swaying on, and next,
Comes playing sun's mere rest,
With the boys before their longest vacation,
With the kites in hands, ecstatic combination

Kites of every hue, of nature's theater,
Kites sight the grandeur,unveiled, never the rider,
Flies over skies, with the loops ,save nasty lever,
Dies down a sun, cries the boy "Kites, here!"

Some reach the hands back safe, Treetops capture the rest,

Days devoid leeway, time's for school,
Days take some unto smiles, but kites, Alas!

At a height I witness, all nature's hues,
The kites on trees suspend,
And never they reach again the open air,
leave teardrops everywhere,

Alone ,the kites, farewell.
