Everything really comes down to solving problems. To do something extraordinary, you have to think beyond limitations. Most of the time, we want to innovate something new, but could not able to do it. But it does not imply on everyone. Some of us can do it.
Similarly, a person who didn’t study in college did some thing extraordinary and he even got a grant of Rs 75 lakh for that.
Vivek Kumar Patel, who studied tills 12th standard only has owned a bike repairing shop and he has invented a technique to increase mileage of a bike. Although, he does not has a well-wealthy family background.
While working on bikes, Patel started to conduct experiments with bike’s engine. As he is interested in doing things, the unconventional way, he worked on bringing changes in motorcycles’ engines.
While testing his efforts, he found that the mileage of the engine had increased to 153 kilometers per liter. He has invented a technique after several iterations during the course of 17 years.
The technique can potentially increase mileage of a vehicle from 1.5 to 2 times.
Joint Director of Council of Science And Technology (UPCST) said, “The concept works on supplying less petrol through the pipe. It not only consumes less petrol in this way but even avoids overheating of the engine. And, if you’re thinking that it would affect the speed or pickup capabilities, then it doesn’t.”
“But the engine works fine and now even has a grant.”
Council of Science And Technology (UPCST), Lucknow, and Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, Allahabad, approved the design and now they are working towards improving the engine efficiency further and commercializing it.
The universities and departments have now applied for the patent of the same. They are intended to use it for manufacturing generators. Even incubation centers have shown interest in Patel’s project.
SMVDU of Katra has now registered Vivek’s project as a startup. A B-tech graduate Aakash will be assisting in the project further. In addition, the students of Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, have extended help in the project.
