Deepika Kurup:

Deepika Kurup, a 15-year-old high school freshman from Nashua, NH won the 2012 Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge for her clever device, which uses solar power to disinfect contaminated water. With the help of the award, she created a solar-powered water purification system that is green, sustainable, cost effective and easily deployable, earning her the title of "America's Top Young Scientist."  In a developing country like India, Kurup’s low-cost invention could be a game-changer.

It was Kurup’s visit to India for a vacation where she has pinned up her mind to do something for the global water crisis as she witnessed children drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool.

Mansukhbhai Prajapati:

Mansukhbhai Prajapati, a famous rural innovator from Gujarat is well-known for his earthen clay based functional products. Prajapati designed a low-cost clay fridge called ‘Mitticool’ that required no electricity and continued to function in the event of major catastrophes or blackouts. His invention is part of a growing trend in India that has become known as "frugal innovation"--below-the-radar inventors across the country devising low-cost solutions to local problems, often created of necessity, by employing its own technologies of their own creation.
