In this experimental setup, better growth of potted plants was observed where cockroach excreta was used as fertiliser.
This idea struck Ananya when one day her friends were complaining about the cockroach problem in their homes. She then wondered whether this pest could be used for productive purposes and then carried out this experiment. Reading books is Ananya’s favorite past time. She plays tennis and soccer and also plays guitar. She wants to grow up as a good human being and inspire others too!
