CU Student develops an app based battery operated cycle

Jai Chachra - A Neoteric Generation Entrepreneur
& his innovation ‘Just Charge’-an app based  battery operated cycle

Entrepreneurship is essentially the philosophy of an innovating mind, a nouveau culture and  a creative mindset.  It is the ability to create an impact in whatever one does in an enterprise in the face of constraints, risks and ambiguity. And this is precisely how the journey of Jai Chachra started.  He joined Chandigarh University as a student of graduation in Computer Science Engineering (with specialisation in Cloud Computing). As a freshman in the very first year, he was pulled up by one of the faculty members for not carrying any register or pen to write notes.  To admonish him, the teacher went on to hand him the cap of a pen to write with. This instead, sparked the thinking terrain of his mind and Jai came up with a unique innovation of a 2cms pen that could be worn on a finger.  This wearable pen is shaped like a ring and can write 500 pages in one cartridge. All because he does not wish to carry a pen around – so just wear it!  It would take 2 to 3 days to train a person to practice writing with it. This innovative product is today a boon for the differently abled persons who may have lost a finger or a hand or is using his feet for writing! Jai’s patented ‘Finger Wearable Pen’ takes the pain out of writing for those who may not have the essential appendages for writing. 

With this start, Jai went on to innovate an ‘Accidental Survival Kit - Rakshak’. This idea came up because way back in 2017 only cars costing upwards of 18 lakhs had airbags safety option. So, using an enhanced version of micro control units, he designed a system whereby a cars driver seat area was sensitised to alcohol vapors. Thus, when a driver who has consumed alcohol wishes to drive a car, this device would apply an AI based system and the car would be restricted to travel upto 18kms per hour only! Of course he is the patent holder for this product too!

By the time he completes 3nd year of graduation, Jai already has 5 patents in his pocket - all thanks to his mentor and life coach Dr Sanjeet Singh who has been handholding him, egging him on and ensuring he does not buckle under challenges.   His dream project “Pet-It” was literally evolved in his dream where he visualised himself being recognised as one of the Fortune 500 qualifiers for a ‘Pet Tracking solution’. To follow this dream he actually evolved, patented and popularised “Pet-It” – a smart pet ecosystem that can be attached to a  pets collar. This helps for scheduling vet visits, food timing, and any other activities that need to be followed for the pet. All pet lovers find this a unique and pet care friendly product. With several companies in the US chasing this product, Jai is completely grounded in the knowledge that all entrepreneurship is not always about running a business.

Jai strongly believes that every problem has a solution and applies this philosophy to evolve products as a solution to existing problems. Thus, Jai was never inclined for a ‘placement drive’ nor did he join the CSE programme with Chandigarh University to be placed with a corporate big-wig. As a self-motivated innovator, he feels that today, no one accepts you because of your visiting card.  You have to build your reputation and its public acceptance step by step.  Infact, no entrepreneur starts with infinite resources. They are just persistent in their resolve.

This resolve led him to innovate ‘Just Charge’ – an app based battery operated cycle. This was aimed as a solution for hostel students on the campus who have to walk extensive distances during a day, from their hostel to their department - to the administration block and to the dispensary and back to hostel. All this walking in the Indian summers was very disconcerting  for Jai and he researched alternatives like ordinary bicycles, electric skate boards (as seen in the popular movie ‘Koi Mil Gaya’) with a handle and hover boards from the perspective of affordability, usage over uneven terrain, the weight it may be able to transport and battery life.

As a sophomore at the university, he reached out to the seniors and peers in the department of mechanical engineering to help him shape his innovation. The entire journey was  replete with changing, making adjustments, accepting errors and modifying by the minute.

The entrepreneur in Jai accepted that he will not get it right always so he reset his course correction to bounce back higher. He manufactured 10 units of his ‘Just Charge’ and started talking to resorts if they wished to offer independence to their guests instead of golf carts and the idea clicked!  He has currently offered to manufacture initial stock for the hostel students of his alma mater. He will further take this up with universities spread over sprawling vast spaces.

Jai keeps re-imagining  possibilities. He is not waiting for a public tag or an honorary badge -  he just keeps persisting in his efforts with the larger purpose of solution finding.

Inspiring Story of CU Alumni

As a troubled teenager, I had to undergo various stigmas and struggles to live up to the hopes and expectations of my parents and myself. Like every aspiring young guy, oblivious of realities, I worked hard in hope of making to the IIT’s and securing my future. It wasn’t until I graduated from my senior secondary education that the realities came crashing down upon me. Unaware of the rush to grab the handful of opportunities on avail, I stepped out of school. It was then that the harsh reality kept weighing me down and considering the race for IIT’s, it seemed a distant and an unreal dream.    

My father used to say,”ਪੁੱਤ ਸਾਡੀਆਂ ਉਮੀਦਾਂ ਤੇਰੇ ਤੋਂ ਹੀ ਨੇ, ਆਈ.ਆਈ.ਟੀ ਦੇ ਚੱਕਰ 'ਚ ਹੱਥੋਂ ਸਮਾਂ ਨਾ ਗਵਾ ਲਈਂ|” Initially, I used to ignore him but couldn’t deny the fact that time is the most important aspect of life and I was running out of it. Also, it is said that we may not realize it in the present but with time we surely learn and realize how important that guidance was and how lucky we were to have made that decision during those times.
The Pandemic, COVID-19 has been the 21st century’s biggest challenge to our world and threatened whole of the humanity but on the other hand it has also made us realize the value of what we have and has reminded us about our ignorance and negligence as well. Wishing to make it to the IIT’s, I listened to my parents’ advise and started looking for better and broader options for my higher studies and got enrolled into Chandigarh University. Everything was going well. The mentorship is great; I have made friends and moments for life, my educational aspirations were all being fulfilled with regular workshops, study tours, seminars, and what not.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 happened and our country went into complete lockdown for what seemed to be an indefinite period. Being in the last year of my graduation, my dreams again came crashing down as just before the final term everything was halted. I wondered how would I complete my syllabus, attend all those workshops, seminars and graduate with flying colours. I wondered if even exams were possible and if I would graduate in this year itself.
These factors had a deep impact on my mind but there’s someone always looking after you. In my case, while I was staying home being cautious of the disease and worried about my future on the same time, it was my University who didn’t let me down. I have never made better use of Internet than with Chandigarh University, who has been holding online lectures, webinars, assignments, discussions in the most emphatic manner. Battered by the pandemic, I can now truly look at life in altogether a distinct and an inspiring way.

Chandigarh University comes-up with Special Serving Trolley to maintain social distancing

Chandigarh University comes-up with Special Serving Trolley to maintain social distancing

Chandigarh University “CU-AID” campaign kicks off in Tricity; Staff and Management donates one day salary for COVID-19 crisis

Social Distancing is the key that would help India to stop itself from entering into the third stage of community transmission and recently the Union Government instructed States and UT’s to observe social distancing while serving the poor. Underlining the importance of the call, Chandigarh University Gharuan has designed a special serving trolley which is being used by the volunteers of university to serve cooked meals twice a day to the poor and needy in the villages of Mohali.

“One day I watched a news on television where some NGO was distributing food to poor and suddenly there was big rush near the distribution truck barely maintain any social distancing,” said Rakesh Kumar Negi, a technical & maintenance supervisor at University, who is the brain behind conceptualizing the design of the serving trolley. The scene disturbed me that night and finally I decided to do something about it, he added. The next morning, the technician designed the serving trolley which he made from a waste cooler stand that was available in the university junkyard. “The trolley can handle 30 kg of food at one time and is useful to maintain the necessary precautions while distributing the food” added Negi.   

Ever since the lockdown began, Chandigarh University has been running a campaign “CU-AID” under which food is being distributed for the poor, daily labour and needy in the nearby villages. Currently the university community mess is preparing and distributing cooked meals for more than 2000 persons and it plans to extend the distribution to needy persons to Chandigarh by next week.
“While the doctors and health workers are tireless efforts in protecting the precious human lives, it is time for the engineers to come-up with innovative ideas that can be used to develop products or technologies which can be helpful in the pandemic crisis” said Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor Chandigarh University. Serving trolley designed by our staff member is one such small step to help humanity while keeping in mind all the advisories issued by the government, he added. 

Chancellor CU further said that, “The staff and management of Chandigarh University has constituted a campaign “CU-AID” under which funds have been generated by the university staff as we have donated one day salary for helping the poor and needy persons”. The funds are being used to run a community kitchen which is preparing and distributing food, free hand sanitizers and face masks. “We are also in the process of building a 100 bed isolation ward facility at our university hostel which will be fully equipped with all the medical facilities” added Chancellor.

The distribution drive started from the first day of the lockdown and will be continued throughout the 21 days period. The meals are cooked in University Mess and then transported to the different locations using the institution’s transportation. Participating in the drive, Jai Vardhan one of the volunteers said, “We are currently catering to feed about 500 persons daily but we can increase our capacity if the more demand arises in the coming days”.  

“Although the Government of Punjab is ensuring the distribution of food to the poor and needy community through-out the state, yet as an institution it is our social responsibility to help the lower sections of the society in whatever form we can” said Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University.      

He further added that, “CU is also running an awareness campaign to educate the people and residents of villages about the safety precautions from the dreaded pandemic to be undertaken”.  In addition the University Team is also distributing free hand sanitizers in the villages, old age homes and orphanages which has been prepared by the University Department of Applied Health Sciences.
