'Creativity is about liberating human energy.' Howard Gardner 'Creativity is the process of developing ideas that are original and of value. Creative intelligence is dynamic, diverse and distinct.' Sir Ken Robinson 2001 According to cognitive psychologist Robert J. Sternberg, creativity can be broadly defined as "...the process of producing something that is both original and worthwhile."

Creativity can mean different things to different people. For some it means being imaginative or inventive, taking risks or challenging convention. For others it is about original thinking or producing something that nobody has come up with before. Some believe that the term 'creativity' only applies only to those who possess artistic talents. Traditionally, creativity has been associated with the achievements of extraordinary people such as Mozart, Einstein and Leonardo Da Vinci, and a good deal of the early research into creativity has focused on the work of highly creative people or those considered to be geniuses.

Creative individuals have a great deal of energy, but they are also often quiet and at rest. Creative individuals tend to be smart, yet also naive at the same time. Creative individuals have a combination of playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. Creative individuals alternate between imagination and fantasy at one end, and rooted sense of reality at the other.

Creative people seem to harbor opposite tendencies on the continuum between extroversion and introversion. Creative individuals are also remarkable humble and proud at the same time. Creative individuals to a certain extent escape rigid gender role stereotyping and have a tendency toward androgyny. Generally, creative people are thought to be rebellious and independent. Most creative persons are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. The openness and sensitivity of creative individuals often exposes them to suffering pain yet also a great deal of enjoyment.

Inspiration is everywhere from the words of your favourite writer to the blooms and leaves on your morning walk. You just need to open your eyes, and breathe it in. Sometimes it helps to talk to others who are creative to get their creativity juices flowing.

There approach differed significantly from other experimenters of the time who put more emphasis on developing powerful engines.[7] Using a small homebuilt wind tunnel, the Wrights also collected more accurate data than any before, enabling them to design and build wings and propellers that were more efficient than any before

Rashmi Parvathi K, a girl from Puttur in Dakshina Kannada district, is all set to fly to the US with her innovative science project which could even lead to a breakthrough in medicine. The 17-year-old daughter of farmer Ravishankar K from Nekkila village, about 60km from here, developed technology to produce salt with medicinal properties from coconut palm petiole (the stalk which attaches the leaf to the stem). The organic salt with antimicrobial properties can be used as a medicine for various skin ailments. Her project was selected for the prestigious International Science Project Competition of International Sustainable World Energy Engineering Environment Project Olympiad ( ISWEEP) in Houston, Texas from May 8. She's among four students selected from India and the only one from Karnataka.
