Remya Jose, now in her twenties was just 14 when she proved that ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’. She developed an awesome washing machine that runs without electricity and made her a National Award winner too. She belongs to Kizhattoor Panchayat in Malappuram district, Kerala.

It all happened when she was preparing for her class X boards when her mother fell ill and her father was already undergoing a cancer treatment. So, she along with her twin sister had to take charge of all the household choirs including washing clothes. The family could not afford a washing machine which made it difficult for them to concentrate on their studies.

Instead of waiting for a miracle to happen she designed her own washing machine. Her father helped her and requested an automobile workshop mechanic to make the washing machine based on Remya’s design. The machine connects to a paddling system that makes it look like an Exercycle, thereby serving twin purpose of doing laundry and keeping you fit.

Apart from this innovation, Remya designed and won other prizes for a working model of a casserole that functioned as a thermal cooker and a still model of a transmission tower for mobile phones. For her 12th examination she had made a model of a refrigerator that would keep vegetables, fruits etc. fresh up to a week.

Remya’s innovation costed only Rs. 2000 and could have been a blessing in disguise for many. But such innovations that have a spark of making a difference to the lives of people often get lost in oblivion.
