A teenager’s invention will stop train accidents


Five people died in the incident of fire in the Benapole Express train at Gopi Bagh in the capital. At that time, this incident caused quite a stir. Eighth grade student Rayyan Azad Ankur is also scarred by the horrific incident. Since then, he has been thinking about how to prevent train accidents. In the last five months of effort, he developed a method.

His invented system will send a message to the driver in the event of a train fire and automatically sprinkle water to extinguish the fire. Besides, this system will send signal to the station master and train driver if the railway connection is broken at any place or if the rail line bends. If the signal is received before the accident, it will be possible to prevent it.

Ankur is the son of Habibul Azad of Shershah Road area of ​​Ishwardi town. He is an eighth grade student of Bhasha Shahid Vidyaniketan. According to Ankur, it was invented at a cost of three thousand rupees in five months of effort.

In this regard, Muktar Hossain, head teacher of Bhasha Shahid Vidyaniketan, said that Ankur is talented in studies. Along with his studies, his innovative thinking is very commendable. I have always supported his activities on behalf of the school. I hope he will brighten the face of the family and school with new innovations.

Ankur’s mother Jinnat Rehena said, Ankur used to think about various inventions besides his studies. I supported him mentally and financially on behalf of the family. If Ryan can do anything for the country and nation, that is our worth.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Subir Kumar Das said that Ryan Azad Ankur has developed an automatic prevention system in train accidents. With his methodology, he participated in the 45th National Science and Technology Week competition at the upazila and district level as well as at the national level. Besides, he participated in the Bangabandhu Creative Talent Search-2024 and won the first place in the upazila and the second place at the district level. The upazila administration will inform the senior officials of the railway about this innovative method. They will experiment and see if it is possible to prevent rail accidents by using it.
