‘Creative Twins of Kashmir’: Meet Rafez and Ishfaq

Refaz Ahmad and Ishfaq Ahmad twins from south Kashmir’s Anantnag have been in scientific researches since 2010 and they have made 36 innovations that have been accepted by the Indian government. Apart from these 36 innovations, they have almost 20 innovations on which they are researching and are yet to get accepted. They have won 4 national awards and one international award. They were also invited by Canadian govt to work for them but they choose to remain in Kashmir and to serve Kashmiri people.

We have many ideas in the fields of agriculture, health, and education, but we need support from the government so that we give our ideas a shape.

They have named their innovation club as the twin brothers’ innovation club. The first national award they got was for Spade cum hoe, foldable water bottle 3in1, and other innovations. The duo belongs to a lower-middle-class family and is facing financial problems in doing the research needed for new innovations. As per the duo, they are almost 500 new ideas on which they want to work but due to the non-availability of the lab, they can’t do. According to the duo, most of the ideas on which they have worked come simultaneously in their minds and they term it as God gifted.
