Concerned by the sight of overflowing garbage bins, the three friends have come up with an idea of a dustbin with separate slots for bio-degradable and non bio-degradable waste with a message sending facility to the municipality once dustbin is filled up to a preset level.
While walking on the streets, Shivani used to see overflowing dustbins, with waste scattered all around them. She thought of creating a dustbin with separate, yet attached slots, for different types of waste. She pitched this idea to her friends, Prem and Ankush, who, too,had witnessed the same plight of dustbins many times.
The three students began work on their innovative dustbin project and divided work on the idea among them.While Shivani worked on the basic idea of a dustbin, Ankush worked on the segregation part. Prem worked on the decomposition process.
When they grow up, the three friends want to be in a profession that would help as many people as possible. While Shivani wants to be a teacher, Prem wants to be an electrical engineer and Ankush wants to become a doctor.
“I want to become a teacher so that I can help the future generation understand the right from the wrong. I will also work at getting more respect for women,” says Shivani, who likes to learn new things like riding a bike or playing chess.
Her father is a welding worker and mother is a homemaker. She has a younger brother.
Prem has a dream of taking India to newer heights. “My interest is to read books, play cricket and badminton and practice karate. I also like to watch wrestling on television,” says Prem, whose father works with a plastic manufacturing company while his mother is a homemaker. He has a younger sister.
In his free time, Ankush likes to solve quizzes in Maths and Physics. He also likes to read books and play cricket, volleyball and other outdoor games.
“I want to become a doctor because I want to help the poor with free medicine and treatment,” says Ankush, whose father works in a steel company. His mother does sewing work at a company and he has an elder brother.
