New Delhi, June 4 : A Chinese man in Mizhi county, Shaanxi province, built a solar water-heating device by using beer bottles so that his elderly mother could take a warm bath every day.
Ma Yanjun, a resident of a remote mountainous area where farmers aren't even afforded the necessity of bathing after a long day working in the field, collected dozens of beer bottles for the masterpiece, reports The China Daily.
The 42-year-old improvised the water-heating device in 2006.
Ma's device not only gifted his 73-year-old mother a bath every day, it also attracted the envy of 20 local farmers.
Ma now has been recruited by the jealous farmers so that he may help them build their own solar water-heating devices.
