Vivek Kabra, an IIT Bombay alumnus lives in the Jalna area of India, where he has used his scientific background to empower child and adults by creating fun Adventures with Sun. He is the founder of Simplified Technologies for Life - the young startup that has pioneered the concept of Suryakumbh, literally, a festive gathering celebrating the power of the sun. It involves a series of workshops conducted across the country, focused exclusively on hands-on experience with solar energy.

He was encouraged to start his solar cooking campaign after having lived with solar cooking growing up. His mother solar cooked throughout his childhood, and he thought solar cooking was the norm for everyone. Frustrated that solar cooking was being passed over by his local scientific community, only fueled his desire to spread awareness of the potential for solar cooking. Solar energy is available for free across the country and there is no transportation cost involved.

All the operations of Suryakumbh are run from Jalna district in Maharashtra, which lies 60 km (37 miles) from Aurangabad.
