The locals of the Jhoonpdi village can be seen observing the helicopter made out of waste when Chetram starts the self-made helicopter.
Chetram has not yet flown his self-made helicopter Pawan Putra, as, he awaits government approval. As per the Indian student, ‘Pawan Putra’ can fly up to 6-meters (20 feet) once it gets the government green signal to take the skies.
Chetram Gujar's invention out of waste is not the first to come into the limelight, earlier a florist from Manipur named, Neli Chachea came into the limelight and received appreciation for her efforts to revolutionize the concept of waste and recycling it to make dolls. A lot of efforts throughout India and the world are being made to recycle waste.
