Inspiration:A modified cycle that acts as a plough


Five boys from St. Kabir’s Residential School in Hisar helped towards making the life of their school gardener a lot easier by a simple innovation.Shriyansh, Doshagya, Anirudh, Mohit, and Saransh, who were eighth standard students at the time, wanted to do something that would lessen the burden for their friend, who only had a small tool for tilling the soil.The boys came up with the idea of a bicycle plough. Envisioning a contraption that could be created by attaching the plough to a discarded bicycle, the boys put in their own money and headed straight to a scarp dealer.

Finding the necessary things, they modified the bicycle so that only the front axle, wheel and handlebar remained as a unit and attached to a plough. Not only was the device eco-friendly, the bicycle plough served portability too, that made it all the more convenient for their friend.

Interestingly, a similar device was developed by Gopal Malhari Bhise, a farmer from Jalgaon in Maharashtra many years ago.
