Staying in a locality where many mechanics live, Digantika observed that the hand drills they used produced a lot of dust, which caused infection and allergies to them. She thought and developed an attachment for the drill machine, which could collect all the dust and debris.
Digantika likes creating innovative things and has already developed two tree climbers and a spectacle with a rear view finder. She also likes to paint and wants to become a scientist like Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
