After seeing the dangerous results that common gypsum chalks have on the employees and college students of their college, two college students from a authorities college in Hyderabad’s Adilabad have give you an revolutionary natural alternative for gypsum chalks.
P Harshit Verma and Okay Rudra, college students of the Telangana State Model School (TSMS) in Bangari Guda, Adilabad mentioned that they got here up with the thought because the mud generated by the gypsum chalks was dangerous in some ways.
“The regular chalks used to write on boards by teachers are generally made using chemicals. These chalks are made from gypsum powder and the dust generated from it may lead to many health issues especially in the lungs and causes eye irritation as well. We have come up with organic chalks that can be replaced with the regular gypsum chalks,” Verma informed ANI.
Natural substances resembling rice flour, pure clay, and important oils are used to make these chalks.
“We have used rice flour and natural clay for the preparation of these chalks. Along with these two, we also mixed neem oil, lemon oil, camphor, and many other naturally extracted substances. Further, to create a natural aroma in the classroom, we have added natural fragrances like rose water, extracts of Jasmine and sandal, and many other natural aromatic substances,” Harshit mentioned.
Rudra informed ANI that instructional institutes throughout the nation used gypsum chalks to write down on the blackboard which irritates the lungs and eyes of scholars and academics.
“There are many schools, colleges, and other educational institutions across India who use chalks to write and teach. These chalks lead to many health issues like allergies, respiratory diseases including asthma, and even eye infections. That is why we have come up with this idea to create organic chalks,” he mentioned.
