The new India. This lady was serving some delish fire roasted corn on the cob on a roadside stand. Earlier she would sweat it out with a hand fan, the corn getting roasted on embers of coal in the mid day sun, but now she’s armed with a solar powered fan making the process several times easier and quicker helping her serve more people and make more money.
The fan was supplied to her by a small startup which had the creativity to think of such a use. And of course, payments are accepted to her mobile wallet. It’s all fine to sit in conference rooms and talk about women empowerment or sustainability, it’s an entirely different thing to experience it first hand at places you would least expect.
