What’s the idea:

The idea is to have a modified wheelchair that can be folded and converted into a crutch so that it is easy to take stairs as well for the user

The three friends who had gone to celebrate one of their friends birthday in an orphanage were moved by the plight of lower limb challenged. They thought is a wheelchair can be modified in such a way that it can be folded easily and converted into a crutch, it would greatly help users to move around specially over stairs. Sanjay likes reading novels and listening to western music, Ramkishore likes drawing, reading novels, and playing video games. Crazy about computers, he wants to become a computer engineer. Tamil Selvan, who wants to become aeronautical engineer, likes reading non-fiction, watching animation movies and day dreaming, as he mentions.
