He often had to travel back home to feed his daughter and being a daily wage worker, this can have a crushing effect on the pocket. Following which, Kadam spent months studying and researching online and finally built the ‘Maa Robot’. It feeds the girl, who cannot lift her hands, on a voice command specifying what she wants to eat, like vegetable or a dal-rice mix.
