    It is stated that I am researching on the Energy for the last 28 years. I have acquitted of the new and old methods to get the energy and so many experienced for the less price energy. Out of them experience I have obtained the success. Now I am in a position to create the such Units who can work without Oil, Petrol, Gas and all kind of flammable articles. There is no need for running them of Rivers and Canal Waters. Besides this, Those units can function without the light of Sun, all kind of batteries, current and solar cell and can provide the energy. Beside this, I have made the experience Magnate and Attraction of earth. I have that I will get the success in these experience. But on account of dearness and become upset on account of jobless. I could not complete the under process units so far. It is all known that if any person or any kind of institute wants to offer his cooperation with me then Inshallah I can get the success on the deficiency of Energy.

  31. Respected Sir

    As we all know that today electricity is part & parcel of our life. From

    many years’ people are in search of various new techniques to

    produce electricity through easy & cheap ways.

    Today electricity producing plants are widely dependent on

    two main sources provided by nature, air & water.But sources from air are

    not used appropriately due to its clumsy procedure & high production cost.

    I have tried to invent a method to produce electricity

    through air which is very easy & cheap. It can produce electricity two to

    three times more than the previous design. We can even apply them

    over the rooftop of our houses.

    It will be an honor for me to work with some brilliant brains

    of the world & share my thoughts & experiences.

    I hope that you will put faith in me so that I can show up my

    caliber & potential. I am sending this message in the whole world.

    Waiting for your reply.
