A young boy studying in Class 9 from Odisha has won the appreciation of Russian President Vladimir Putin after he displayed an innovative water dispenser he created to help solve the world's water crisis at an event in Sochi, Russia.
The device, built by P.Biswanath Patra, was displayed at the Deep Technology Education Program conducted in collaboration with NITI Aayog's Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) and hosted by Russia's SIRIUS. The event spanned ten days from November 28 to December 8.
A video from the event was shared by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

The video has garnered over 2,000 likes.
As many as 25 Indian students participated in the program along with 25 Russian students. A similar exercise took place last year when ten Russian student innovators arrived in India for the SIRIUS Innovation Festival. They were joined by ten Indian students from the Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs).
