Biplab Kumar Ghosh, a 12-year-old boy from Odisha’s Balasore district has been invited by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind to attend a tea party in New Delhi.
Biplab, a Class VII student of Upendra Nath Nodal Upper Primary School, of Madhupara hamlet in Basta block of the Balasore district has received the coveted invitation from the President’s office for his amazing innovation in the field of agriculture.
The boy with the help of the teachers and some of his classmates invented solar-run farming equipment which will be effective in reducing labour burden and save time in farm works.
“I am a farmer’s son and know that agriculture demands hard labour and is also time-intensive. When I saw my father toil hard in the field and also pay others to work for us when he is not able to, I thought of helping him and decided to make a machine which will save time, reduce labour and cut down other expenses as well,” Biplab said while narrating about his journey on how he came up with an idea to create the machine.
Taking note of his innovation, the President’s office has also invited him to attend a tea party in Delhi. Though the exact date of the event is yet to be fixed, the tea party is scheduled to be held in March-April.
