Similar interests and the habit of dabbling with ideas brought the four together. Initially, they produced mobile phone chargers and sold them in sizeable numbers, but they wanted to do something more impactful. The turning point came when they won the first place in a robotics competition held by the defence ministries of India and the US in 2008. It was a moment when the door of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) production was opened for them. They aimed to build technology from scratch and developed India's first micro UAV, which was later modified to the existing UAV Netra. Today, their drones are being used by all major security forces, including the army, navy, air force as well as the Natural Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) to rescue people in situations of calamity.

"Whenever there is a big security or rescue operation, I can say with conviction that our UAVs are involved in it," says Singh. Whether it is the manning of the Amarnath Yatra or locating terrorists' hideout in the Pathankot air base, their UAVs did a perfect job.

"Our UAVs have helped Uttarakhand's forest officials locate a killer tigress in a day," says Mehta. The UAVs can take off and land vertically on a small space like the terrace of a building. They can get close to a target 12.5 km away and have a maximum flying capacity of up to 2.5 hours. The founders will be happier seeing UAVs used for improving crop yield and managing public assets such as water pipelines and power grids.

With a vast experience in water management, Parag was looking for a larger project that would also make a deep impact on society. One area of particular importance, he felt, was the huge gap in the demand and supply of safe drinking water. During his frequent travels between Pune and Mumbai, he used to see beggars asking for water besides money. "For them, water was more important than Rs 2 or Rs 5 we gave them. That established the need for safe drinking water," he says. He realised safe drinking water could be a social service as well as a good business.

Together with younger brother Anurag, he launched Janajal, a water supply company, in 2013. So far, the company has dispensed around 125 million litres of safe drinking water. They have set up around 400 water dispensing machines, popularly called 'water ATMs', which will be augmented by another thousand next year.

Drones can perform critical tasks as disasters unfold, including spotting people in need of urgent help . Murphy said she was pleased that drones are becoming an integral part of disaster relief efforts — and surprised that it took so long.

They say the challenge in safe drinking water is maintaining sustainability. For instance, water treatment plants are installed by many organisations or under the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives of various companies, but these are not maintained professionally. Janajal ensures that all filters, membranes and other parts of their water treatment plants are replaced from time to time to maintain quality of drinking water.

There were people willing to invest capital but no one was willing to bear the cost on ongoing maintenance. Therefore, the brothers developed the water ATM concept. They say consumers are very happy to pay a nominal cost for the water as long as it is affordable.

They have national-level tie-up with pathology chain Thyrocare, which has a water treatment laboratory. All of Janajal's tests are done there following norms laid down for safe drinking water. They also have a real-time monitoring system to ensure the quality of all their devices, and their patented micro controllers.
