Himanshu Muneshwar Deore from Bengaluru has designed a schoolbag that can turn into a desk
Bengaluru: The resolve to do good for the society can lead one to innovations.
Himanshu Muneshwar Deore from Bengaluru is testimony to it.
The 24-year-old student teamed up with locals to design a schoolbag that turns into a desk, as reported by Times of India.
The website states that he was a product design student who graduated from Bengaluru's NICC International College of Design.
And as he got good job opportunities, he turned them down to work on this project. And to realise it, he went to Uttar Pradesh to interacted with local artisans to design such a bag with moonj grass.
As reported by Times of India, "I stumbled upon the craft during an exhibition in the city and was fascinated by their work. I had always wanted to work on something to help children who are struggling with posture issues because of the lack of desk in schools."
More on the bag:
The schoolbag can carry a total load of three kilos, and is designed keeping in mind the health of the shoulders and backs of kids.
The bag has two straps for kids to carry it and two metal stands that support the side of the bags and can be turned into legs for the desk.
"I studied a class V student, calculated the size and measured at what distance, angle and height she usually writes. These measurements were used in development of the prototype," he added.
