As the use of green energy is increasing day by day, the new concept of Smokeless Chulhas for food preparation is currently gettting noticed in village areas. Food is one of the most essential elements which are a dire necessary for all human beings. We are lucky to stay in places where the supply of fuel and gas for cooking is abundant. There are millions out there who are still in the darkness and are risking themselves just to feed their family. Indoor air pollution leads to respiratory diseases which could result in premature death.
