“Never give in–never, nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” With curiosity as biggest asset and urge to see betterment through self efforts, A boy grew up to be an entrepreneur who heeds to mishaps and needs of the society. Prior to all the achievements what matters is the scientific temper that rooted into this young mind and made its way to extraordinary results that we witness now.
Mr Niranjan Kargi, A Mechanical Engineer of Belagavi is a consistent contributor of innovative products serving needs of the society. Born on 17th of October in the year 1995, Niranjan was a child with immense love for chess and football. He not only excelled in his academics but also gained special interest in indulging himself in innovation.
Some of the important projects that was undertaken by Niranjan were The Hydrogen Kit(improvised fuel efficiency), Hydrogen welding(alternate welding method and by products applicable for hospital usage), Sustainable energy(a prototype for conversion of sea water to drinking water) and finally the most innovative project was Nirnal(water purifier).
NIRNAL is compatible, portable, reusable, healthy and an eco-friendly water purifier. A product which ensures ‘Safe Drinking’ at an affordable price. This acts like a filter when the water oozes out of Nirnal fixed to the bottles. It is easy to use and also imparts taste and some essential minerals to the water.
The origin of idea was when Niranjan saw few kids filling their bottles with impure water from a tank at school. The fact that those kids could not afford to buy the expensive water purifiers was well known by Niranjan. That is when he set on a mission to design a purifier which could be at everyone’s service. With the help of Nirnal, he could provide the purity of drinking water to many government school kids and employment to women who are involved in production .
