Budgam, Nov 16: A 17-year-old boy has made his parents proud after he made an electric chargeable cycle at his home here in Humhama area of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district. The 9th Class student is now putting his efforts to make an electric chargeable car.
Musaib Gani, son of Abdul Gani Dar of Humhama Budgam said he has made an electronic Chargeable cycle last year. He said the eco-friendly electric chargeable cycle was completed by him a week ahead of the abrogation of Article 370 last year, saying that the situation thereafter didn’t caught anyone’s eye over his work.
“Nobody even trusted me when I came up with this innovation, which even left me disappointed,” he said, adding “But when I rode the bicycle myself on the streets, people in my locality applauded me, especially my family, which gave me courage and subsequently I made three more such bicycles for my cousins and a friend.”
“I made the 1st bicycle in four weeks, which is made of four chargeable batteries (48 volt) and a motor,” he said, adding that once the batteries are charged completely, one can ride 60 kilometres on it at the speed of 40 km per hour.
This bicycle is easy to ride and can be used easily in day to day life and it can save the environment from pollution as well, Musaib said.
Musaib, who is 9th Class student at JK Public School, said that “The support of my family especially my father is behind it, who believes in me and put everything in front of me.”
After getting a good response from the locality, Musaib said he started working on chargeable car. “If I get proper platform, I will come up with new innovations that will prove fruitful for the society,” he added.
Musaib wants to be the Automobile Engineer in the future. He appealed the people of Kashmir and administration to support the youth who are coming up with different innovations—(KNO)
