Yantra Kids

Once upon a time there was a farmer named, Rishi. He was living happily in a village of Gorkha with his wife, Radha and a son, Ravi. Their village was in such a rural place that there was no availability of electricity from the government and therefore Ravi could not study during the night. Ravi wanted to become a doctor and wants to help his village through free health services in the future. But as he could not study during nights, his aim was hard to be achieved.

One day, when Rishi came to the district headquarter to sell his agro products, he saw a study table. The table was designed in such a way that, there was a chair and table attached, the table had its own LED light and a battery. The battery was charged by the paddle kept underneath the table. Hence Rishi and his family didn’t need the electricity to charge the battery. With all these features, when Rishi went to buy that table, he could not afford it financially.
