How did the baba come up with this quirky idea? Like every day, the man was going around selling pooja flowers door-to-door. Due to the high temperatures, Lalluram fell sick. He was unable to go out to sell his goods and this made life tough for him and his family. The family was barely able to make ends meet so Lalluram’s ill health took a toll on them. After he got better, he realised he needs a portable fan as he’s unable to bear the heat. That’s how he came up with the idea to wear a solar-powered fan on his head.
He made this quirky portable fan by borrowing the items from several people as he barely had any money left since he fell sick. He said that the portable fan gives him some relief from the heat. The intensity of the fan depends on how strong the sun’s rays are.
