Without electricity and changing climatic conditions of India, these people are forced to keep their energy sources in form of dry wood stems or cow dung cakes.

From the interaction with the villagers of Loni (District-Pune, State-Maharashtra), it was observed that rural population mostly believe in sharing their resources and devices, which they think that strengthens their bonds. That’s why this device has been designed in a way that user can share it between families and friends.
