Name of user/organization : Gujarat Grassroots Innovations Augmentation Network/Bachubhai thesia
Utility
Normal electricity AC has 50 cycles/second. In case of short circuit or loose connection, this can go up to thousands that results in the bulb filament breaking off. The modified bulb of Bachubhai prevents this due to the presence of a circuit in it. The aluminium holder of a bulb is heated, which expands and is taken out easily, the glass is perfectly sealed. A chit of the name of the person is inserted in the glass hollow in the centre. A fibre circuit is also put inside, which enables the bulb to last longer. Since these bulbs last longer, miscreants used to steal them from his buyers’ houses/fields hence he started putting the name chits inside the bulbs to identify the owner of the bulb.
