               The whole concept,working and public reviews are their in the videos. But I'll talk something about which is not their in the videos. Something like behind the scenes of  SMART MANDIR. I'll share my experience of making this project to reality.

Navratri is on head. Think something innovative this time for the decoration of mandir.” My mother asked.

I started working on it. Initially, the only thing that struck the mind was to decorate the mandir, simply with LED strips along with arduino, coded with different patterns that run continuously. I was still not contented.

“How about a high end humanoid robot that offers prasad to all devotees, same as my mother do after aarti ends???” I thought.

Finally, I came up with an idea.
I remembered a line follower car which could work as robot in my project. I started thinking about how to arrange things that would amaze all. Many ideas and thoughts crowded the room of my mind.

It was time for some action.
I called up my friend AKSHAY who is a great coder and a great Techie. We discussed lot together regarding the project and it was no time for Navratri, just 2 days left.

 Firstly, we completed the creative part - decorating the mandir. It was already one day down; we started working on the second part of our project - the core part i.e. Coding and Debugging.

Every great idea requires great efforts.

We tried numbers of codes to make our project look automatic and hassle free. We failed every time trying new codes.

As great THOMAS A EDISON said, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
We tried once more and not ended trying till we got it. Finally, the idea turned to reality.

I looked at my friend AKSHAY, we smiled…

Two days of hard work, two days of dedication, two days of creativity and coding, two days for ‘SMART MANDIR’.
