Motorcycle Driven Ploughing Machine
Like many other drought prone regions, this region also has a severe shortage of fodder leading to decline in the availability of bullocks for farming operations. One of Mansukhbhai?s friend approached him to find some solution to scarcity of draft power. Looking at the motorcycle his friend was riding, Mansukhbhai thought of adapting it as a ploughing machine. That?s how ?Bullet Santi? was born. Innovation is not in the tool bar which was developed much earlier but the attachment in the motorcycle which has diffused widely in the area.
