World’s Smallest Christmas Card

christmas card

Nanotechnologists at the University of Glasgow have produced what they believe to be the world's smallest Christmas card. The card has an image of a Christmas tree etched on a tiny piece of glass and measures 200x290 micro-metres. Invisible to the naked eye, the card is so small that 8,276 of them could fit on an area the size of a postage stamp. The point behind the creation of the card was to show how accurate nanotechnology is, according to the university's school of engineering.

After the Korean War, Thimayya headed a United Nations unit dealing with the repatriation of prisoners of war. After his retirement from the Indian Army, he went on to command the United Nations peacekeeping force in Cyprus. While in Cyprus, he died of a heart attack, in 1965. The Republic of Cyprus, in addition to this stamp, issued on 6th June 1966, honored him by renaming an avenue of the city of Larnaca after him. In India, the street perpendicular to East Street (a road parallel to MG road in Pune),the Richmond Road in Bangalore, were renamed as Gen Thimayya Road, in his memory.
