He aims to be able to open a factory for manufacturing three-wheeler car in Nepal itself.
Apart from the car, he has also invented drone, electric cycle, and hydraulic arm among others.
His school, Axis Vidyasharm, organized the first ever science exhibition in Dhangadhi just to showcase the projects developed Tanmay.
Many were taken by surprise to see the inventions of a 10th grader. He was able to inspire many through his works.
Seeing the program, many others schools are also conducting similar science exhibitions around Dhangadhi.
Likewise, engineering students of Pulchowk Engineering Campus were also very impressed by him and his projects. They seemed highly impressed by his hard work. College teachers, President of Robotics Association of Nepal (RAN) and representatives from Society of Mechanical Engineering Students of Nepal (SOMES) were too impressed, and offered for helps if needed.
Tanmay has become an idol for students and teachers from various schools and colleges in Dhangadhi.
“Many students from colleges used to visit my home to see my project and ask me to do even better and do great things for the nation,” Tanmay reminisces.
“I am keen interested in science. I am not very good at study, but I am very good at inventing things. After I start something, I stop only after giving a finishing shape to it no matter how many days it is gonna take for me to complete. This is my strength,” Tanmay shares about his strengths that brought him to this position.
