Hari Rao was a commerce graduate and took up the job of income tax official as his profession, but he always had an interest in cooking. His passion for the Indian cuisine led him into the field, where he began to standardize recipes and planned to then share them internationally.

However, as he was making standard recipes for over two hundred Indian dishes, he began to draw his attention to the stoves used in cooking his food.

His curiosity grew after discovering that little to no research went into gas fuel technology, and he then went on to improve the workings of stoves based on gas fuel.

Looking into this field, Rao realized how there was absolutely no study in it. For years, the same exact gas fuel technology has been used, and there has been no effort to innovate how these stoves work.


Thus, Rao went deep into the field himself, and began designing Agnisumukh, the first innovation in gas fuel-based stoves in decades. The first variant he created saved over 50% of the fuel commonly used in industrial kitchens, and additionally, was free of both carbon and smoke, allowing the cleaning of utensils to be much easier.

The stoves that Rao designed have ceramic burners underneath them, which allows them to be smokeless, and they do not leave any residue. The ceramic burner design also allows uniform heat to be made, since the ceramic radiates on its own, which saves immense amounts of fuel.

The stove saves money as well, for when a member of the team, Supriya Chellappan, used one of Rao’s stoves at the kitchen at the IT major Infosys’s Thiruvananthapuram office, their operation spending became two thirds of the original cost. The stoves are also gaining ground internationally, with Rao’s innovation able to be both a life-saver and a planet-saver.

Using this can rapidly reduce the deaths caused by carbon monoxide poisoning and can lower carbon emissions by ten million tons per year.

Therefore, this will bring down greenhouse gas emission as a whole and make the world a better place to live.
