Bull Power: Yes you read that right! Yoga Guru Ramdev and Acharya Balakrishna of Patanjali are planning to generate electricity using Bulls.Research of over one and a half years on the idea to generate electricity with the aid of a bull’s pulling power has yielded initial success. The aim is to ensure that the animals don’t get sent to slaughter.
This experiment is the innovation of Balakrishna, MD of Patanjali, and involves a leading Indian multinational automobile manufacturer and a Turkish partner. A prototype has been designed and is being tweaked to generate more electricity. So far the design, has managed to yield nearly 2.5 kilowatts of power.“At a time when more and more male bovines are being slaughtered, we want to change the perception that they (bulls) are not very valuable,” the report quoted Balkrishna, as saying.
“While in the morning they can be used in the farms, in the evening they can be utilised for generation of electricity. We need to go back to the basics. In ancient times, bulls were used to ferry massive artillery. If their power is put to optimum use with the help of technology, they can be of tremendous use,” Balkrishna said while talking to ET.
