Agartala: The 29-year-old Rajkumar Malakar of Chhoto Surma village of Kamalpur, in Tripura’s Dhalai district, has been striving hard to get an international patent for his innovation of a pneumatic motor that uses the wind to convert compressed air energy into mechanical power for operating an engine.

Addressing the media here on Friday, Rajkumar claimed that his invention can drive a heavy vehicle, generate electric energy, and easily replace the fossil fuel-driven engine, for which he has filed for a patent in India through an authorised Calcutta-based agency and expects it very soon.

“Patenting in India would not serve my whole purpose; my innovation has already gotten huge applause from various countries, and Bangladesh has offered me support for further research and development of the technology, but I want to remain in India and do whatever I can in my motherland,” Rajkumar said.

His international patent mission required a few crores of rupees in investment over the next 10 months, for which Rajkumar sought the attention of the Indian government and agencies, claiming, “I have already spent more than Rs 10 lakhs researching my dream and have lost whatever options my family had.”

Rajkumar, an arts graduate, has been working on a mission to invent an engine using non-conventional sources of energy since 2008, when he was studying in Class X. He was motivated by the teachers of physical science who taught him the conversion of energy for scientific development.

Rajkumar claimed the engine runs on air from the atmosphere and would be able to recycle wind energy without any loss of velocity, which is much more powerful than the engines that run on gasoline and diesel without harming the environment. However, before it can be used for humanity, the machine must be revalidated in any research institute or certified company, which requires funding.

“He was not interested in studying science in higher secondary taking the plea that it would hamper his mission to invent the pneumatic motor. Rajkumar had been admitted to the arts stream and graduated with good marks. But he didn’t stop his activities aside from helping my farm work and forward business,” said his father, betel leaf cultivator Jayanta Malakar.
