A day in Radha’s Life @ Innofest ‘15

The stage is set, I have received my invite to Innofest’15 and look forward to the day with great anticipation. It was a flash sale on Explara and i am delighted with my prowess at the fastest-finger-first.

I have just completed my engineering degree from Davanagere, and have received two offers, both through campus interviews. Both seem interesting, and both are in technology, after all thats where everything is today.
And yet! I am not sure if thats where i want to be.
You see, i have this dream. I have this idea of creating an instant water purifier pen. You put the pen into a glass or a bottle of water,  and electronic pulses instantly destroy all germs in the water, turning it safe. Even a child can drink it. Imagine what it would do to the lives and productivity of all those millions who don’t have access to quality drinking water.
