Venu Lanka Vijayawada: The city, which is known as "Blazewada" for its scorching summer heat, is giving tough times for its citizens. Temperature in city is soaring to alarming heights. Citizens are getting scared of hot sunny days. As a result, the demand for liquids has grown up. People have been quenching their thirst with cool drinks, fruit juice, sharbats and many more to beat the summer heat. But most people continue to prefer the traditional coconut water as the best summer sip. Keeping in view the increasing demand for the tender coconut water and the difficulties in chopping it, Devender, a young graduate in computer science from city, invented a new machine for chopping coconuts safely as well as easily. He worked for more than six months on this project along with his friends. Finally he invented a low-cost coconut chopper with which anyone can chop and have a sip of water. This invention made him grow as an entrepreneur. He, along with his friends started 'Godavari Cool Coco' a corporate-style coconut vending cart. At present, 12 such carts are moving around the city offering tender coconut water. People are getting attracted to the branding and technology used to chop the coconuts. Devender and his friends say that their intention was not to commercialise this machine, but to promote it and create employment for many others like them. At present, 12 people are employed. Devender and his friends are planning to open their branches in Guntur, Eluru and Ongole cities soon. The people of the city are appreciating these enterprising youth for their innovative idea.
