Shaikh Mohammad Nazim (31), is a lock and key repairer by profession. In order to overcome the cumbersome process of stencils production which is carried out by punching papers using needles, he has made a stencil cutting device for hand embroidery design.
Nazim has been very creative since his childhood and has completed his studies upto class 12. Presently, he is pursuing model making training at National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.
Majority of his friends are engaged in making manual designs on sarees and dresses. While visiting them frequently, he noticed that the manual punching of design on butter paper was a time consuming and labour intensive process requiring the participation of the entire family. Motivated to find a solution for this, he came up with the idea of a pen having a reciprocating needle to simplify the work.
