Known for patenting a version of the game of chess involving six players, this Indian inventor earned several prestigious honors, including the Sri Balaji Society's Child Innovator Award and the CavinKare Ability Special Recognition Award.
When he invented his six-player chess game, he was only nine years old; at age ten, he became the youngest person in his native India to hold a design patent.
After patenting his six-player chess game, he went on to invent versions of the game suited for up to sixty players. Afflicted with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, he invented a unique ground-to-vehicle ramp to help others suffering from physical disabilities.
He was born and raised in Jaipur, India. His father assisted him in his invention of the six-player variant of chess.
He credited the disabled scientist Stephen Hawking with inspiring him to accomplish great things despite being wheelchair-bound.
