Electric wheelchair

After the meeting for new hostel was over DoS suggested that if students buy an electric wheel chair for one student from Sarayu, it will be a good gesture. This student needs it very much. Being from a very humble background he can not afford buying one for himself. I sincerely felt that it was a very right thing to do. I immediately agreed and decided to act quickly.

We are from a premier technology institute. So it's quite obvious that we should that we apply technology for our day-to-day life. Carrying the same thought, we felt that the electric wheel chair should have a good electronic control and preferably should be operated through a joy-stick. Now I have started appealing other students to contribute for this noble cause.

I have sent requests for quotations to manufacturers in Delhi, Indore and Chennai. There is one in Mumbai and I will try sending request today. Manufacturer from Chennai has replied back giving the specifications of the vehicle and pricing details. I should be able to visit his place in Mylapore in a day or two.
