Remya Jose

Remya Jose, all of 23 years from Malappuram in Kerala, is a gifted innovator, with a number of path-breaking innovations to her credit. The washing-cum-exercise machine that she developed received a National Award from former Indian President Abdul Kalam. The idea for the machine came to her as washing clothes was a tiresome chore and her family could not afford a regular washing machine. Remya works at National Innovation Foundation, Ahmedabad, and is responsible for many other innovations.
