Ashok Chouhan, 27, of Harsola village in Mhow tehsil of Indore district in Madhya Pradesh has designed a solar headlamp, which can be used by children to study at night. During the day, the small solar panel on the cap stores electricity, which is used later.
This concept was appreciated by MP Council of Science and Technology (MPCST), which also gave him a grant of Rs 1,500 for designing 15 such solar headlamps, says Chouhan, who also won the Best Vigyan Pavilion Award in this year’s exhibition and best innovator award last year.
One may be wondering how it is possible to generate electricity through moonlight. When asked Chouha says that he uses a large reflector that focuses moonbeams on a small area where he places a normal solar panel. This generates electricity, though 50 per cent less compared to day light.
But these days he is working to improve the design to get maximum electricity and hopes he will be successful soon. After completing his graduation in arts in 2008, Chouhan on his own started to study electronics and explore how it could help him make a difference to the people in his village.
His innovations may not be considered inventions or contributions to pure sciences, but they are pioneering concepts where he has used existing technology, modified the basic designs and applied them for solving pressing local problems at the village level.
