Nagarajan (45) lives at Usilampatti, a small village 40 km away from Madurai in Tamil Nadu. He has studied up to ninth standard. He is married and has two children. Being the eldest in the family, he supported the education of his younger brothers and sisters and also got them married. He is the sole bread-winner of the family. His dream is to develop such machines related to food processing which are not available in the market. M. Nagarajan has modified a garlicpeeling machine and a lemon cutting machine significantly. These improved machines address the two-fold problem of the pickle industry, namely, inefficiency due to low degree of automation and short supply of labour during peak seasons, which limits the capacity.
