In almost all the schools, water taps are at the same height from the ground. Taller and shorter children have to face discomfort in drinking water. Chhaya’s idea is to have taps arranged at an incline instead of present horizontal arrangement so that a student can use the tap suitable as per his/ her height.
Chhaya has a lot of interest in studying English, painting, making Mehandi designs and playing Kho-Kho. Her idea was implemented by her school, Vidhyadham Boru Primary School. She wants to become a scientist and solve problems of our society.
