Two students Malav Sanghavi and Mustafa Khanwala made India proud as they were featured in the top 10 of the London Mayor's 2016 recently concluded innovation competition, thanks to their stunning innovations.

Malav was the highest ranked Indian grabbing the fifth spot followed by Mustafa in 10th position. While Malav designed a smart amputee socket which can be adjusted via an app to suit the individual’s needs, Musatafa produced an app that stops queuing in shops, allowing one to immediately pay for goods and services. The other two Indian entries in the competition were by:

Suresh Kumar - Idea: An app to help educate stroke victims. It is programmed to make use of every day things, such as sarees.

Surabhi Mittal- Idea: He designed a tea set made of papier-mache. It is an attempt to revive handmade crafts in the era where everything is prepared in industries. Surabhi's idea was commended by panelists.

The top prize was claimed by Italian origin Luca Alessandrini, a post-graduate from Imperial College London, who beat hundreds of other entries from 49 different countries and 17 universities, with a violin which is made from a mixture of spider silk and resin. He won 10,000 pounds top prize in the competition.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said, "The incredible range of talent on show in these awards celebrates the best of the capital and clearly demonstrates that London is open to talent and ideas from across the globe."

"We need to do all we can to ensure that London remains the best and most welcoming destination for international students," he said.

The awards were set up to highlight the work of the city's international students and also to provide some financial help to assist students in taking their innovation to the next stage of development.

It was devised by London and Partners, the Mayor's official promotional company and is also supported by the UK Government's Education is GREAT campaign and the British Council, Cambridge English, IDP Education and The PIE.
