You may have heard of solar-powered lights and other gadgets, but have you ever heard of a ferry boat that runs on the energy from the sun? If you haven’t, tune in to HistoryTV18 next Monday at 8 PM to meet Kochi’s very own naval architect Sandith Thandasherry who has built India’s first completely solar-powered ferry and won the prestigious Gustav Trouve award for Excellence in Electric Boats for 2020. ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’ is Indian television’s most successful real-life entertainment series that features incredible and inspirational stories of ordinary Indians doing extraordinary things. In its fifth year and seventh season, airing every Monday at 8 PM on HistoryTV18, the stories featured this time are 10x more OMG!

Being a coastal state, Kerala depends heavily on boats to ferry people and material along the coastline and through inland waterways. A majority of these boats run on diesel, causing noise, air, and water pollution while also adding to the state’s transport board’s fuel bills. It is estimated that diesel ferries in Kerala consume fuel worth Rs. 3.5 crores and produce 9.2 crore kilograms of carbon emissions each year. Watch the episode next Monday at 8 PM to see the unique design aspects and engineering technology of Sandith’s innovation that have led to zero pollution and massively reduced running costs, and a more stable experience on the water.

Tune in to ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’ this Monday at 8 PM to watch Sandith’s amazing innovation, along with other fascinating curiosities like a gob-stopping private collection of telephones in Mumbai that is worth more than twenty-lakh rupees!

Watch ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’, Season 7 every Monday at 8 PM, only on HistoryTV18.
