When the road gets flooded during rains, it becomes very difficult to ascertain if there are any open drains, manholes or potholes under water, resulting in many accidents. The students have individually thought about an idea to have a device in vehicles, which could detect such openings on road so that accidents can be prevented.
Joshita also likes paragliding, poetry and social work. She has also formed an association named Baal Manch along with her friends. With keen interest in space, she wants to become an astronaut.
