Vivek Kabra explains the benefits of solar to young students, 1-23-14

Vivek Kabra explains the benefits of solar cooking to young students.

Vivek Kabra lives in the Mumbai area of India, where he has used his scientific background to empower child and adults to eat food cooked in solar cookers. He is the creator of Suryakumbha, 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 Suryakumbha are run from Jalna district in Maharashtra, which lies 60 km (37 miles) from Aurangabad.

Read more about Vivek in this interview done in 2014.
