Usman came up with novel and simple idea of ceiling fan in the house is mechanically powered by a wind-mill on the roof.



Once travelling towards Nandurbar, looking out the window of a moving train, 6-year-old Usman saw some windmills zipping by. His father later explained him that the wind moves blades of windmill which in turn moves the device placed beneath it.

1: Excellent collection of bright innovative ideas by children. As Einstein put it, IDEAS RURE THE WORLD. Creativity, innovation and invention are the pillars of society. I find the Science exhibits put up at Science Fairs are of top order in some cases. The IQ of present generation is quite high. We have to nurture the innovative spirit in children so that it blossoms for major breakthroughs.
