  4. yes Alis …we do have such things in India…but not in the lavatories of Indian Railways!…hence the Disposable Mug! 🙂

  5. Very good approach.
    Do you have water faucets in toilets in India? I’m Turkish, and here all toilets have a tiny tap, like the one seen here:

    Funny how I haven’t seen this very convenient faucet in any other country!

    Awesome stuff. I think the disposable mug has great potential for packaging as well.

    I discover something new everytime I visit indiabydesign, great show 🙂

    I have been following Sandip’s work for some time now and I can definitely say that what all of us have seen above is just the beginning of many of his beautiful designs to follow. A genius in development and only time will tell how much an impact he leaves on the common man’s life !!

    My best wishes to you Sandip and keep up the good work.

  9. Hey! thanks for appreciating my efforts! 🙂

  10. just too cool!

    what makes it really cool is the fact that these are so everyday objects… that’s what hits you actually… if these were futuristically designed coffee makers or some electronic gadgets, i don’t think it would have felt as impressed!
