They learn, understand and internalise, And then build with their own hands, Their very first cooking device
Decieved by its radical simplicity They doubt their device’s performance, And so they are asked to cook,
Anything from Rice, Cake to Noodles, Without smoke, fire or wire, Their device heats up in no time,
As children awaits anxiously, To witness the magic of Sunshine, Afterall for majority of participants,
(Padma Vibhushan & Eminent Nuclear Scientist)
I’m fascinated by the scale of Suryakumbh and the radical simplicity of the concept. Energy is the biggest currency of this century and every country is striving towards energy self sufficiency. Suryakumbh, seen from this context is a landmark event that’d propel children to think out of box and invent a radical solution to otherwise complex problems of fuel poverty and environmental hazards.

My congratulations to the entire team of Suryakumbh for coming up with such a novel idea of giving young children an experience with solar energy. In the times of climate change and global warming, harnessing Sun’s energy is the best bet and who better to lead the change than the future of our country – the Children.
(Chairman & MD, Mahindra & Mahindra)
Suryakumbh is a novel programme to promote the use of renewable energy among youth. Just as students harness the Sun’s energy to productive use, Suryakumbh harnesses the energy of these fertile minds to create a more sustainable and energy efficient future for all of us. I commend this great initiative and wish the team all the very best.

It was a wonderful experience to celebrate the festival of Suryakumbh with 3484 children. The idea was unique, the food tasted great and the fact that it’s World’s Largest Solar Cooking event certainly brings a sense of pride and self confidence amongst all.

Kudos! Suryakumbh: A solar cooking initiative by 3,484 children has qualified for the Guinness Book of World Records. What an inspiration!
(Prof. IIT Bombay & Independent Director ONGC)
Suryakumbh is a unique confluence of a scientific device and a toy. Its toy like simplicity invites children to play with it while its powerful performance propels their curiosity and inclination towards the fundamentals of Science. Even adults, including me, thoroughly enjoyed the event.
