According to a popular English proverb, 'necessity is the mother of invention'. One man in Gujarat is following suit as far as this proverb is concerned, since Vishnu Patel, 60, is differently-abled and has stunned automobile engineers with his innovation. Using just e-waste like discarded mobiles, laptops, TV remotes and vehicle parts, Patel has been building battery-operated three-wheelers and bikes.

Patel is from Surat and was born with impaired hearing. He said that after his retirement he wanted to something for the differently-abled community. He claims to have built several battery-powered vehicles like two and three-wheelers without any formal training in electrical engineering or any investment. Patel calls his creations 'e-bikes'.

"People throw away waste but I am making bikes out of it. I want to make three-wheelers for the differently-abled community, using which, they can give their families a ride too," he told ANI news. Since the e-bikes are battery-powered, they are eco-friendly and have no emissions, he added.
