KULGAM — Momin Ishaq Teli, a third-grade student hailing from Munad Gufan village in Kulgam, has captured attention for his innovative spirit by designing a multitasking machine aimed at providing timely alerts for fire and gas leaks while illuminating 20 bulbs.

While speaking to The Kashmir Pulse, Momin highlighted the prevalent use of traditional firepots and heaters during winters in his community, which increases the risk of mishaps.

The 12-year-old inventor detailed the components of his machine, which include a heat controller, sensors, humidity meter, and various home improvisations, including parts from an old TV set’s box.

“The machine utilizes a fan pipe to remove gas or fog from the room and is rechargeable,” Momin explained.

He dedicated four to five months to completing the project and expressed his aspirations to develop more machines beneficial to society in the future.

“So far, I have developed three machines, including a multifunctional freezer, cooler, room warmer, and a refrigerator. An egg incubator capable of hatching up to 50 eggs at once, and now, the latest multitasking machine aimed at preventing fires and gas leaks,” Momin elaborated.

However, Momin’s journey as an innovator hasn’t been without challenges, given his economically modest background. “The government should come forward and help me so that I can contribute much more in the future,” he appealed.

He urged the government to provide assistance to talented youth, including his son, as it would further empower them to make significant contributions.
