All of us are facing a very hard whether this year. This summer is definitely killing us with its hot breeze. People in upper middle and high class are overcoming this summer by using air conditioners and air coolers. AC’s are always considered as a thing of luxury and it is difficult for lower middle class people to afford it.
In this situation, Jagadish who belongs to Coimbatore has designed an air cooler at a very low cost and he named it as “village AC”. Jagadish belongs to Selvapuram which is in Coimbatore. He had completed his masters IT at KSG college and he is now working as a System administrator at a private organisation.
Jagadish has a daughter and he is living a low middle class life. Recently his daughter faced severe health issues due to the hot climate. Her body was not able to withstand such high temperature and hence she was dehydrated very badly it seems. Hence, he decided to buy an AC for his house. When he went to the shop he came to know that AC is very expensive and it does not suit for his budget. Jagadish very badly needed an alternative and he started searching for ideas in internet and YouTube.
With the ideas gathered he started making an air cooler at home using Exhaust fan, Vetiver and Manpanai. Manpanai and vetiver are natural sources and they have cooling capacity, though not effective as an original AC. Starting rate of this natural cooler is 1500 rupees. According to people’s need he modifies certain things and he is selling this cooler. About five to six models are available at present ranging from 1500 to 4000 rupees. He also got approval for his business and very soon he wants to take this idea all over the state and country it seems.
We have to solve our own problems and we ourselves have to find an alternative says Jagadish.
