What started off as a hobby, five years ago, has now earned fame for Pentakota Rajesh who continues to work as a television mechanic. A six-foot homo sapien, created by him, hopes to enter Guinness Book of World Records soon. The clay craft combined with rubber mould represents how each and every part of human body functions with inbuilt electronic and electrical mechanism.
Rajesh had created many clay moulds under the name of ‘wonder toys’ that blinks, speaks and plays cricket. His creations ‘Ayyappa makara jyothi’ and ‘cricket Ganesha’ have already entered Limca Book of Records, India Book of Records and Book of State Records. Spending almost two years understanding the mechanism of Homo sapien, he now intends to enter Guinness Book of World of Records. “I did a lot of research to design the concept. After working for almost two years, I was able to create a homo sapien. I hope my work not only helps me get recognition worldwide but also helps schoolchildren,” he said. Appreciating the creative thoughts of Rajesh, founder president of Creative Makers in Events Vincent Pratap Kumar said:
“Rajesh works hard for his living and his innovative thoughts made him design 56 toys so far using printed circuits, and electronic and electrical mechanism. With his latest invention, he hopes to reach schoolchildren and help them understand the structure of human body.”
Dedication, hard work and perseverance can make a man achieve greater heights, MLA Malla Vijaya Prasad said. “Being a commerce student and working as a television mechanic, Rajesh has created wonders in the world of science. His creations are innovative and has a message to deliver,” he said.
Actor and writer Gollapudi Maruti Rao appreciated Rajesh and added that his designs should not be just restricted to entering a record books but should reach a generation.
