Shrikant converted an old motorbike which was out of use into a racing bike which could easily clock speeds in the range of 130 km per hour. Riders would be surprised by the speeds the bike could attain with hardly any jerk or vibration. The engine, gear box, forks, disc brakes and suspension were modified for racing conditions. The tank, kicker, case side lamps and other parts were designed by Shrikanh using CADD and fabricated using lathes and laser cutting machines. A mobile phone with a customized app doubles up as a speedometer showing accurate time and distance. Shrikant is a final year diploma student at PES Polytechnic college.
Smrthi founded Kagakka Gubakka with a mission to keep long-forgotten stories, games and traditions alive. The name is derived from stories about a conniving crow and a smart sparrow who are friends and about their adventures together. The live events see about 50-60 kids in each session. It starts with a 15-minute warm up session of gamified learning and personality development, followed by three stories – one rooted in mythology, folk and another one that makes them laugh. It ends with games that everybody looks forward to. The sessions take place at popular public parks of Bangalore. Many elders frequenting the parks get to share stories, and find the interactions with kids to be a welcome change.
