Meet the UP girl Kalyani Shrivastava, made the cheapest AC of the World which costs INR 1800
This is the era where everyone can live their dreams and fulfill the dreams. In this age everyone are getting a platform to explore new things, think about them and present in front of the world. This story is about a little girl who is just 16 years old and a permanent resident of Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Kalyani Shrivastava, who is studying in 12th standard at Lokmanya Tilak Inter College in Jhansi, recently made an air conditioner under just Rs. 1,800 INR. Her father Dinesh Shrivastava is a teacher in the Department of Basic Education and her mother Divya Shrivastava is also a teacher.
The invention made by the little UP girl Kalyani, named as Desi AC, has an ice box made of thermocol where air is released from a 12 volt DC fan. Cool air is then released from the elbow, resulting in a drop in temperature by 4-5 degrees if the AC is used for an hour and it has been constructed in such a way that it causes no pollution. Since the AC works on solar energy, it will reduce the electricity bill and consumption too.
Kalyani’s Desi AC has been selected by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT-D) for the National Level Model Competition. She was honored as part of the initiative “Naari Samman” launched by the Uttar Pradesh government in partnership with Hindi newspaper Amar Ujala.
When she was asked that from where she got the idea of making the cheapest AC, she replied –
“For the people of Bundelkhand it is not possible that everyone can afford an AC and the heat is unbearable, so I got this idea and transformed into a reality which is being appreciated a lot.”
And this little girl really transformed her ground breaking dream into reality. After looking at her work, the scientists of Japan have invited her to attend a seminar.
Besides her technical ideas, she is also an amazing singer. She has participated in the television reality show Indian Idol, reaching the third round. She has won more than 50 prizes in competitions held in Lucknow, Agra and Kanpur.
Kalyani Shrivastava, the 16-year-old UP girl, is really an inspiration for the young generation and her low-cost AC comes as a relief to the poverty-stricken population.
