Let IPL sponsors help these kids

The article titled "Rich innovations of poor dreamers" written by Naresh Nunna, which was published in The Hans India, on April 13, 2013, rightly says that talent and creativity will flourish only when there is money. The four young children who have developed a design of space settlement 'Garuda' which qualified for the NASA project final competitions are not able to go to the US because of lack of sponsorship. The children namely Yamini Priya (a physically-challenged student), Sowmya, Sudheer and Sai Kiran are looking to fly to Houston, US, if any sponsor comes forward. The nobility and clarity of their intent is evident by the very names of the project designs - Bhageerath for water management; Sanjeevani for health care management; Dronacharya for education; and Chanakya for constitution. This settlement which can accommodate 20,000 people with facilities like gardens, shopping plazas, sports stadiums and have Garudampics for every four years. This unique million dollar idea of these four brains has no wings to fly simply because there is no money. Currently, India is experiencing the fervour of IPL in which the sponsors bought the players for exorbitant prices. Even if one sponsor of IPL can lend support to these young ignited minds, their brainchild is bound to become a future possibility. I would like to appeal to HMTV and The Hans India management, media houses and other rganisations in the State to shoulder the responsibility of promoting project 'Garuda' and helping the ideas of young minds to grow. Sadly, it has been proved once again that in our country, creativity and talent alone don't matter much. What matters is how much money one has. Let the Government help them in all respects to grow.
