        SOLAR LED WORKSHOP- 2nd OCTOBER, 2018

        On the beautiful, hazy morning of 2nd October,2018the students of Std. VII to XII set out towards IIT Bombay at about 7:30a.m. With potato chip bags and their tiffin boxes, they arrived at their destination close to 8:30a.m. The campus had an air of intellect and freshness. The students were seated in one of the study halls, where they were given a presentation to sensitize them about the need for solar energy and the technical aspects of the lamp. They were familiarized with all the parts and were given the kits. The students had to test each and every component of the lamp to make sure that it would work at the showcase later in the evening. After a morning of technical testing, guided by a Power Point presentation and the organizers, the students had lunch at around 1p.m. Each one was given their own fun-packed box of DOMINO’S PIZZA! Yay! It sure as hell bought smiles on everyone’s tired faces. Immediately after lunch, the students began the assembling of the lamp, it took about 2 hours (of battery fixing, wiring, attaching, detaching, soldering, and final assembly), and when it was finally done, they all had their own bright, functioning lamps and all it needed was a solar panel and a few hours of charging and it would work for days!! Honestly, everyone felt the joy of creating something with their own hands. Around 6:30p.m, when it was closer to sunset, they were transferred to the gymkhana ground.

        The students were addressed by the Director of IIT Bombay, Chetan Singh Solanki ─ a professor from the Department of Energy Science and Engineering and the founder of SoUL (Solar Urja Lamp project) said, “Once the students understand the importance of saving energy, it will help us spread the word faster and create awareness”.

        Shri Anil Kakodkar ─ former chairperson of the Atomic Energy Commission mentioned “Like Gandhi’s charkha was the soul of freedom struggle, these solar lamps are important to spread the message of solar, renewable energy.”

        The State Education Minister ─ Shri Vinod Tawde said that “Students could be given extra marks if they made efforts to reduce carbon footprints”.The guidelines for the official attempt were laid, and then came the moment.

        At the countdown, everyone lit their lamps simultaneously to create this magnificent arena which looked like it was filled with thousands of fireflies; dancing with the music booming, and everyone’s hearts beating a tad bit louder with all the excitement. They all knew for once, they were part of something bigger than themselves and those few minutes felt like an eternity.

        More than 1.25 lakh students participated in the event – Solar Urja lamp (SoUL) - an IIT Bombay initiative-that was held in 850 schools across the country. Out of the 1.25 lakh lamps assembled across the country, 5700 were made at the IIT-Bombay campus. Guinness World Records certified the event that was organized by the ministry of new and renewable energy, IIT-B, State Rural Livelihood Missions (SRLM), SoUL and Tech fest.
