What’s the Big Idea?

Sajid is a little boy blessed with the sensitive soul of a poet.  His compassion shines through in his poetry.  It also made him acutely aware of his mother’s drudgery as she went about her daily work in the house.  He got especially troubled each time he saw her hunched over a pile of rice, tediously picking out impurities. Rice was a staple food in their home, and cleaning it for a family of five was not easy.  Wanting to help out his mother, Sajid came up with a ‘Rice cleaner’ that automatically cleans rice before cooking.

Many changes and trials later, the rice grain cleaner was ready for testing. It was a working model that used electricity to separate physical impurities from rice. It could clean up to three kilograms in an hour.
