Padman success story, biography of Arunachalam Muruganantham


He was born in coimbatore in 1962. After losing his father in a car accident in his childhood, the financial condition of their family became very poor. His mother used to work in fields to manage the family and his education expenses.

At the age of 14, when his family's financial condition became very much poor, he decided to give up his studies. His professional life got started by working on the fields and operating the welder machine.

In 1998, he got married with Santi devi. One day after his marriage he saw her wife passing silently with a very dirty clothe in his hand. So he asked her, what was that? She replied, It's none of his business. In one of his interview Muruganantham said,the clothes used to be so dirty that he even did not use those to clean his bicycle.

He asked her wife, why didn't she use sanitary napkin instead of those dirty clothes in her periods? She replied, if she started to use sanitary napkin then there will be no money left to buy milk. To impress her wife next day he bought a sanitary napkin for her. At that time he noticed that the weight of the sanitary napkin is so less.

He calculated that the production cost of this sanitary napkin must be not more than 10 paisa where as it had been sold in the market in a price 40 times higher than that. So he thought, if he wants he can easily produce those napkins at a very lower cost. Because it's not only his wife who was suffering in that problem but also millions of other women who were also facing the same problem.

At that time he had choosen such a field to work on, about which the women even hesitated to talk about. In starting of making pads, as he got no help from his sister and wife, he had to go to medical students to get help. But there also he got no help. As there was no way left, he decided to experiment with himself. May be he was the first man in this world who had tried a pad made by himself.

He had used blood of animals in a blooder,at the time of cycling that blood sprinkled into his pad. But he noticed that after absorbing the blood his pad was getting unusual shape which was never good for use.

After 2 years of research he discovered that along with cotton, cellulose fibre was also used in making those costly pads available in the market. That's why they remain in their shape even after absorbing liquid. Although his research was successful, after this Muruganantham had to face a very difficult time in his life.

He came to know the cost of the pad making machine was about 3.5 cr rupees which was never possible for him to arrange anyway. But then also he didn't gave up. After 4 years of research finally he invented a machine and became successful in the challenge of making pad at a very lower cost. The cost of the machine was only 65000 rupees.

In 2006 he went to IIT MADRAS and presented his idea to everyone. Everyone liked his idea very much. His idea got nominated in National innovation foundation, grassroots technology innovation award, and he won that award.

After that he founded Jayashree Industries,which made it possible to reach out the machine to all villagers. Many companies tried to buy the machine from him offering a huge amount of money but he never agreed to sell it. Had no college degree, not even help from any rich powerful man, only depending on his hard work and will power, what he had done for the women to save them from the problems they had to face during their periods day,for which they had been suffering in many diseases, not only the indian women but also the whole world respect him for that.

Although he had not studied in IIT, but today he had been invited to give speech in IIT. Muruganantham's machine had effected the indian women in two ways, not only it had made it possible to provide sanitary napkins at lower cost but also it created a lot of job opportunity for many indian women to earn money.

In America in a session with Bill Gates he said, "Don't just wait for the right opportunity to come. Take any problem and find a solution to that problem by your own. Because in every problem there lies an opportunity"he also said, "Instead of using your education just for your survival, try to use it to innovate something to change this whole world". His success story had touched so many people's heart that a bollywood film titled "padman" is going to be released very soon on his life story.
