A country that is free from pollution is what we all dream of and it will soon become a reality only if we actively participate in making the country pollution free. At the age of 63, Syed Sajjad Ahmed, a man from Kolar wished to do something for the people of his country about which most of the youth of the country hardly care about. His enthusiasm to do something for the humanity is now an inspiration for many. About 15 years ago, Syed came to Bengaluru from Kolar and started working as a fruit vendor. He then opened a small shop where he used to repair televisions and radio sets. He had a passion for innovation that slowly developed and he started making television antennas on his own. He even designed a two-wheeler for people with disabilities.
