A chemistry professor from Thiagarajar College of Engineering near Madurai, Prof. Rajagopalan Vasudevan is an ingenious innovator. He has devised a technique of laying down roads made of plastic waste. Known as The Plastic Man of India, Prof, Vasudevan has so far laid down more than 20,000kms of plastic roads in India. A simple and effective method that not only eliminates the problem of plastic waste but increases the longevity of the roads as well.

At just 13 years, Malavath Poorna brought immense pride to the nation as she became the youngest female climber in the world to scale Mount Everest. What makes her feat even more significant is that she comes from an economically backward family in Telangana. Her parents work as farm labourers to earn a livelihood. Now a class Xth student, Malavath is determined to achieve greater heights and become a source of inspiration for other girls hailing from her village.
