I am a National awardee for being an inventor/ innovator, but from last eight years. I barely have received any award from any organization, since my all focus remained on writing and publishing theoretical research work. This is the first Award of my carrier where my conceptual idea has been recognized for any award. Indeed, I had neverimagined that I would get anyInternational Award for my work. Getting an Award and especially being the top Awardee atanyplatform like Creative & Convergence Award is just like the feeling of Dream Comes True.I have got much discouragement from last few yearsabout continuing with my research, this award has providedme new wings to fly above the limits of sky. Awards are not only about carriers, this award will backup and redeem my respect and honour in my society which I had lost in this long struggling timeofbeing asuccessful Innovator and scientist. I don’t know how to thank those people who helped me, who believed in me and now who have recognized me for thisprestigiousaward. I got my last awardfrom theIndianPresidentin 2012 and that wasamong the best moments of my life and now thisInternationalCreative and Convergence award has not merely made mehappy but I consider it as amilestone for mysuccessful future, InshaAllah!
To everyone who has played any part for getting this award I just want to say your reorganizationsand help have opened a gateway tomy internal peace and the successfulcarrier. Saying amilliontimesthankyouwon’t be enoughto you.Still, thanks for everything.

Innovative designs are sought in solar cooking systems to make the system more user friendly, highly efficient and cost effective. In seek of innovative designs this paper describes the conceptual design of novel and Innovative Thermally Hybrid Indoor Solar cooking system. In the system, by using a parabolic optical concentrator mounted on the top of structure/building the solar light is concentrated and focused to Focal reflecting element which re-directs it to the pair of Fresnel lens for converging the beam to transmit it for the larger distances. The Solar Redirector at the ground end of the system redirects the beam and transmits it to the core of the Innovative Thermal Hybrid Cooker (ITHC) using a novel approach of inbuilt ellipsoid shaped cavity adjusted with cone shaped reflective element inside the ITHC; where the solar energy gets scattered and reserved in the form of latent heat energy using Erythritol as a Phase Changing medium for late night cooking. The description of the different elements of the system is pointed out and an end-to-end optical energy efficiency analysis is performed. On estimation the system attains 83.2% of end-to-end optical efficiency, making the system novel in transmitting the solar energy directly to the core of building for cooking purposes. Using the solar radiant energy data collected by Indian Meteorological Department, Govt of India, the total transmitted diffused and global solar radiation for Jaipur city have been calculated paving the way for the exergy analysis, and further research and development of the system. The system possesses the potential to be adopted worldwide especially in Tropical regions of the globe.
