SRINAGAR: Believe it or not! Now you can transfer Smell (Aroma) to anywhere in the Globe. A Kashmiri youth from Srinagars Molvi Stop Lal Bazar area has developed an Aroma Transfer Device. This is the 5th consecutive innovation of Kashmir youth Engineer Mirza Muhammad Idrees-ul-Haq Beigh who is just 26 years old.
In June 2005, Idrees was awarded the Rajya Puruskar (Governors Award) by then Governor S K Sinha in the field of social services but renounced it on 19th July 2013 on Human Rights violation in Gool Ramban Jammu.
While talking about the working of Aroma Transfer Device (ATD), the young innovator Idrees Beigh told CNS that, Aroma Transfer Device is a device, which is used to transfer any Aroma from one place to another in any corner of the world. In simple language, we can send the fragrance of anything electronically to any person and you will get feedback from him how it smells, he said.
The Aroma Transfer device (ATD ) is entirely different, it comprises of Aroma detecting sensors mounted of a vertical limb which is used to get aroma through a series of spectral analysis of which the combination of Hydrogen, oxygen and carbon bonding structure is individually determined ,analyzed, memorized & then transmitted into an electronic signal. These signals are entirely in coded forms thus can be send from one place to other. On the other hand the carbon, hydrogen present inside the air is trapped by disintegrating the air into its components and the similar ratio of the memorized and transmitted structure is made with the help of a device present at the other end, thus the smell is transmitted easily.
Besides an innovator, Beigh an ardent RTI activist said that the ATD is a gen next gadget and is unique in its working. It can be used in multiple works from Aroma Tests in humans, Aroma Therapy, and to detect the usage of Bio Chemical Weapons. It is matter of pride for Kashmir that I am getting my software solutions from a software corporate namely, Ample Designing and Development Solutions New Delhi which is owned by a Kashmiri resident Suhail Nazir Mahajan. This software company made my work easy by providing the software solutions on negligible amount as a kind gesture for the valley based innovators. I have also requested to them to open its office at Srinagar so that my other fellow peoples and interested software/web lovers could take advantage of this software company, he said.
When asked where from he got the Idea to research on ATD, Idrees said that, It was in Ramzan, I heard in a nearby Masjid that Rozadhar ki khushboo Allah ko pasand hai (Aroma of a fasting person is liked by Allah) It struck in my mind and I concluded with that the Aroma is transferred from one place to another.
Besides designing ATD, Idrees has also presented research paper on e-governance in J&K ,self charging of cell phone, SMS based non-convo-geothermal based AC systems , SMS based non conventional water pump and the concept of solar kangri.
Responding to a query, Idrees said that, although I am not getting any sponsorship or scholarship from the government agencies but the constant moral support of few people especially Omar Abdullah, Dr. Shashi Tharoor, VC Kashmir University Prof Talat Ahmad, Amitabh Mattoo (Director Australia India Institute Melbourne) consistently makes me to achieve more in this field.
Innovations are my secret wishes. Change your wish into reality and make your state proud, Idrees told CNS in his message to youth.
