S. Narayanaswamy is the author of A Handbook of Solar Energy for the Common Man. For 15 years now S.Narayanaswamy has cooked a majority of his meals with the sun. “I love my solar cooker,” he says. “It is like a pet dog to me.First thing in the morning, I wheel it out to face the sun.” In Tiruvananthapuram with above average annual rainfall, that’s a pretty serious commitment.
But then he is nothing if not committed. It is fortunate for solar cooking that it has a devotee in Narayanaswamy:he was a top bureaucrat when he retired and his devotion to cooking with the sun adds credibility to the idea.
