Competition to identify innovators

Chennai, Sept 22: In a move to identify grass-root innovators in Tamil Nadu, a competition to award innovative outstanding business plans of small-scale entrepreneurs was announced today.

The `Innovations for a better society' business plan competition would be conducted jointly by L-Ramp (the Lemelson Recognition and Mentoring Programme) and TFSC (Tanstia FNF Service Centre), said A Thyagarajan, consultant, L-Ramp.

L-Ramp is a joint initiative of IIT-Madras and Rural Innovations Network (RIN), a non-profit organisation. TFSC is a joint initiative of Tamilnadu Small & Tiny Industries Association and Friedrich Neumann Foundation, Germany.

Addressing a news conference here, Thyagarajan said the applicants should be from the rural areas and the innovation would have to address a large social problem, besides being a viable business proposition.

"We are scouting for grass-root innovators through the initiative. We are confident of finding several from our tiny and small scale sectors," he said.

The last date for receiving the business plans is November 22, 2005 and the winners will be declared on Dec 30, 2005. (Our Correspondent)

India is an agricultural country
and we are all from rural areas.

Even in the cities where we now live
don't you see that mean don't put the
seat up when they tinkle while they
sprinkle? Wiping the seat is for the

That leads me to innovations. Why not
use this as an opportunity to invent
a seat with a photocell. That way the
seat goes up or down by pneumatic
cylinders depending on the gender.
The flushing and the dosing of the flush
with deodorant can be automated using
solenoind valves and diaphragm pumps.
A slow and steady stream of hot air
(no not what our psu bureaucrats
generate) can dry the seat before it is
safe for the next user who is signalled
to enter by a whistle.

ABN AMRO can loan finance the whole project
for a BOLT company

Just imagine a new urban India . . . .
with fully automated hygenic life systems!

Arre LK(g) you will be surprised.
Yesterday I visited one posh multi storey
retail store in a big mall and I just had
to you know what.

I thought that the rich and famous who
frequent that place would have some civic
etiquette. I was apalled to see a trail
of tiny bits of wet tissue leading me to
the door. Maybe this was a clever trail
meant for the aromatically challenged.

Never mind. I took one deep breath to last
me through and ventured bravely onward.

On opening the outer door I saw a man.
I swear he was one because I saw that
he was indeed one. At least the mirror
wouldnt lie. On hearing the door open
behind him he instinctively shifted his
eyes off his you know what and looked
up into the mirror. Seeing me he grinned
weakly and quickly restored his unders
and his outers to where they should always
have been.

I skirted around him and proceeded to the
inner chamber. One look at the floor and
the seat was enough to make me change my
mind. I went home quickly to finish my
task at hand.

I have now decided to devote at least a
few minutes everyday to the worthy and
noble movement for educating my compatriots
about the virtues and blessings which they
may accumulate from learning the delicate
art of using a loo!
