The breather

By Gautam Kamat Bambolkar

In an extremely complicated mechanism of an aeroplane, the small hole present on every single window of the aircraft amazes me. To be recognised as a breather hole, it is designed to regulate the pressure that passes between the window's inner and outer panes. It also keeps the windows fog-free & clean by wicking the moisture that gets stuck between the panes. So when you are gazing at the infinite cloud formations and terrestrial world below you, take a moment to thank the breather hole for it.
