Inspire-VAWT

Today district level inspire projects demonstration ended with colours. Our project was a VAWT. Though the project was not of good caliber may be the model was selected since there was no such demonstration and it was one among the few self made projects. We can imagine what is the spite of our children. Where is the creativity level? Does this Inspire project really inspires? All the curiosity and imagination of the kids were killed by the teachers as they had pushed them to get ready made projects.

Watchers With Wings as the name says this pilot project was started with an intention to provide some moral freedom and responsibility to the forest watchers in the Bannerghatta Area. The forest watchers are at the grass root level and we consider them as the lead role in saving or shaving our forest expanse.
