These two must go together.” Dalai Lama Knowledge Is Power But Knowledge Without Action Is Useless; Putting knowledge into practice is one of the most important tasks. How knowledge combined with awareness and sensitivity towards the environment can bring out brilliant solutions, a wonderful example of it is Vinisha Umashankar, a 14 years old student of SKP Vanitha International from Thiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu who designed a mobile ironing cart, which uses solar panels to power a steam iron box to reduce the use of charcoal and save the environment.
