We use refrigerators to keep our food fresh and safe to eat. Without them, our food would go bad very quickly. This is a serious problem in India, where many don't have modern refrigerators or even electricity.
我們用冰箱來讓食物保持新鮮與食用安全。若沒有冰箱,我們的食物會很快腐敗。這在印度是很嚴重的問題,在那裡很多人沒有現代的冰箱甚或是電力。

As a solution, rural clay worker Mansukhbhai Prajapati invented a new kind of refrigerator called the MittiCool. This simple fridge is made from a type of clay with excellent insulating effects, and it doesn't require electricity. Instead, it's cooled through the evaporation of water that is held in the top tank. The MittiCool fridge can keep milk, fruit, and vegetables fresh for up to five days. Better yet, it's cheap and environmentally friendly.
農村的陶土工人馬蘇克巴亥.普拉加帕第發明了一種稱為MittiCool的新冰箱作為解決方法。這種簡單的冰箱是用一種具有絕佳隔熱效果的陶土製成,且不需要電力。它反而是透過保存在最上層水箱的水蒸發來冷卻。MittiCool冰箱可以使牛奶、水果和蔬菜保鮮多達五天。更棒的是,它便宜又環保。


Prajapati's idea was so successful that he's now making other clay kitchen items such as pans, pressure cookers, and water filters. There are even plans to produce a MittiCool house that doesn't require air conditioning! As Prajapati has shown, despite more advanced technology, simple methods can be used to solve modern problems. 
普拉加帕第的點子很成功,他現在則在製造其他的陶土廚房用品,像是鍋具、壓力鍋和濾水器。甚至有計畫要製造不需要空調的MittiCool房子!如同普拉加帕第所展現的,儘管有較先進的科技,還是可以用簡單的方法來解決現代的問題。
