Scooter powered flour mill used by Kareena in 3 Idiots

Jahangir Painter, a resident of Jalgaon, decided to power the flour mill with a scooter’s engine. His invention is used by Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots

Jahangir Painter (50) felt that the power cuts in his area were proving to be rather painful for his wife. It would take her too much time just to grind grains at the local flour mill. And the good man who loves his wife decided to take the matter into his hands: he bought a scooter and hitched it to the flour mill, and voila, there was no need for electricity.

His scooter powered the flour mill and it is so popular that it is now starring in 3 Idiots, where Kareena Kapoor uses it in an area in Ladakh which has no electricity. Painter even got to meet Aamir Khan last week in Mumbai.

A resident of Jalgaon (400 km from Mumbai), Painter is in the profession of painting. He has no formal education, but he always wanted to be a mechanical engineer. The nagging problem of power cuts helped him fulfil his dream, at least in part. He says, “I was irritated with this daily problem of load shedding. My wife went to the private flour mill for grinding food grains and the power cuts meant that we had to wait for hours. I went to the junk market and purchased a scooter and  flour mill equipment. I spent a couple of days fitting in both engines and made a scooter flour mill. The load shedding compelled me to do something instead of sitting idly waiting for electricity. Finally, I made the scooter flour mill by just shelling out Rs 3500.”

The innovation has been appreciated widely. He says, “I contacted our city engineering college professors and got the opportunity to exhibit this scooter flour mill model. They appreciated this electricity-free model and suggested that I exhibit it at National Innovation Foundation, Ahmedabad. Here, such innovative models were displayed and the organiser sought permission to use this model in Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots. I promptly agreed. It was a great promotion for my creativity as Kareena Kapoor uses it in Ladakh where there is no electricity,” says Painter.

Painter has barely completed his primary education, because of his poor financial condition. “Actually, I wished to be a mechanical engineer, but could not study further. Since I was a child, I started working and chose painting as my livelihood. I wanted to prove that no one will stop my creativity even though I have no formal education. Five years ago, I invented a compressor for the washing machine, which was appreciated by former President Abdul Kalam. With one litre of petrol, the scooter flour mill can function for three hours and on gas, it will run for four hours,” Painter added.

He also loved the perks that came with it. He says, “Last week, I had come to Mumbai to meet Aamir Khan. He appreciated my effort and creativity. Aamir even gave me an autograph which I will preserve and cherish. I am happy that Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan use this scooter flour mill in 3 Idiots.”
