Well, how many of the young readers agree with this?
Well, I am a young writer and I believe that we know more than what previous generation used to because we have a very powerful tool- GOOGLE!
I am sure this article would be something which will make our head scratch!
GopalswamyDoraiswamy Naidu (G.T Naidu) – Is known as the Edison of India!
Let us know more about the Edison of India
This gem was born on 23rd march, 1893 at a very small place near Coimbatore. His father’s name was Gopalswamy Naidu. He was in the transport business. He was an engineer by profession.
GD Naidu was the inventor of first electric motor in India. Not only this, he also made great contributions in the field of electrical, mechanical, mechanical, agricultural and automobile engineering.
If you talk about his education, it wasn’t that great like having a master’s degree or so. His basic education was enough to make him a versatile genius!
Usually, people have hobbies which is completely different of their profession but this person loved to travel in train which was his only hobby. Geniuses always stand apart, isn’t it?
G.D loved to do researches! He co invented electric razor.
He went to Germany in the year 1932 where he was a part of biggest electric razor manufacturing process. Nowadays it is wireless razor which wouldn’t exist if G.D Naidu did not bring the electric razor concept in this world!
Thank you gem for making our life’s much easier! Not only this razor, he also invented thin shaving blades (Well, boys say thanks to him!), distance adjustor for film cameras was brought by this GEM!
He invented fruit juice extractor!
Do you like fruit juices? Well, if you like them then credits should go to our Edison rather than the person who made the juice. Do you know why? Because, he invented fruit juice extractor! If the extractor wasn’t there, juice wouldn’t have existed!
If you are travel lover, you must cover south India! If you get a chance to do so, do check out Botanical marvels made by G.D Naidu! It is beauty in itself! This botanical marvels have high cotton plants, millet plants with high yields and several injections for plants which together constitutes this marvels!
The sad part is that India lost Edison of India on 4th January 1974.
After he died, CV Raman gave a statement saying, “A great educator, entrepreneur in many fields of engineering and industry, a warm hearted man filled with love for his fellows and a desire to help them in their troubles. Mr. Naidu is truly a man in a million- perhaps this is an understatement”
