Asperger's no obstacle for young Kolkata inventor |

Asperger's no obstacle for young Kolkata inventor | Kolkata : Asperger's syndrome has never been a disability for Shashank Agarwal. The 20-year-old has invented a light sensitive alarm to monitor tigers, a vertical-axis windmill that can withstand strong winds and an aeroponic structure to grow plants sans soil.

Now the teenager is going to New Zealand to do a degree in environmental management.

"Once I get my degree and the requisite experience, I plan to start a company and introduce technologies for ecological conservation and provide employment opportunities to others. I hope to do something for the cottage industries too," Shashank told IANS.
