From India to Britain on Solar Power – level 2
It was an Indian man’s childhood dream to travel to Britain by road, but he wasn’t happy with the pollution in India. He decided to turn an old tuk-tuk into a solar-powered one.
He said that it was not easy because he did not know how to do it, and he did not have good tools.
Team members and he did this by trial and error. They failed a lot of times, but the team members believed in the idea. They even failed last year when they drove 1 kilometre and the tuk-tuk broke down. Now, 9,978 kilometres from India to Britain is not a problem.
The man arrived in Britain five days late because someone stole his passport. He hopes that his trip will make people think about the future of transport.
Difficult words: pollution (if there’s pollution somewhere, the place is dangerously dirty), tuk-tuk (a small three-wheeled car), trial and error (experimenting and seeing what works best).
