Necessity Is The Mother of Invention – Inventor’s Day

Team StoryWeavers|September 27, 2018, 07:00 IST| 23

Education is imparted to awaken the natural curiosity of young minds, encouraging them to step out, think beyond and create. From the first wheel constructed during the stone age, to the ancient stupas and stepwells to the more recent studies in Artificial Intelligence, Nanotechnology etc – What is common among these?

These are all inventions by men and women around the world who sought to solve a problem,by coming up with a solution never thought of before.

Inventors Day is celebrated on the 11th of February, honouring the brilliant minds across the world who made lives easier for us.

Here are a few Indian inventors who achieved global recognition because of their revolutionary inventions

Alefia Merchant (34 Years) – A medical student, Alefia devised a unique way of screening eye diseases in children under the age of 5. This method uses a digital camera that elicits red reflexes. If reflexes are abnormal, it suggests asymmetry in the eyes that could in the future lead to eye diseases.


Pranav Mistry ( 32 Years) – One of the top 10 best inventors in the world, Pranav made heads turn with his work on Sixth Sense, a device that works completely on gestural interface software.


Remya Jose (23 Years) – Sick of the tiresome routine of washing clothes by hand everyday, Remya Jose from Kerala invented her own washing – cum – exercise machine which, runs on pedalling rather than electricity to wash and dry clothes.



Harit Soni (29 Years) – In a country where power cuts are a part of regular life, Harit Soni devised a metre called Zigbee. This metre minimizes the wastage of electricity during transmission and distribution.



Ajit Narayan (32 Years) – Ajit changed the world for people with disabilities with his invention, Avaz. Avaz assists disabled people communicate, helping those with autism, cerebral palsy etc.
