Standing in the kitchen and don’t know what to cook? Or feeling an urge to eat potatoes, but can’t decide whether to eat them boiled or accompanied with some other vegetable? Sharvay’s idea does away with these problems. In his machine, you simply select a particular vegetable, and the monitor displays a list of different ways it can be cooked along with the ingredients required. Asked on how he came up with such an idea, he simply replies, “Because I love food.” His father won the Gandhian Young Technological Innovation Award in 2012 for his project on using engine exhaust for automobile air conditioning. He shares, “Sharvay is innovative and interested in things beyond studies.” He credits his son’s school for believing in stress-free value education and promoting out-of-the-box thinking.
