Deepika Kurup has been determined to solve the global water crisis since she was 14 years old, after she saw kids outside her grandparents' house in India drinking water that looked too dirty even to touch. Her research began in her family kitchen and eventually led to a major science prize. Hear how this teenage scientist developed a cost-effective, eco-friendly way to purify water.

She was in my AP physics class in High school, this is so weird!!!
on the previous video "what we don't know about europe's muslim kids" you disabled comments
why do you prevent discussion on this topic?! why cant we work together for solutions?! why cant we view other's opinions?! i hate the idea of a topic so sensitive one must silence all voices on that topic! this is part of the cancer which divides our culture, when people cannot talk to each other they cannot understand. censorship by its many methods keeps us divided! censorship is not how you bring a people together, it's how you stop dangerous truths from spreading. but the truth here supports your side- WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE? and if you have nothing then DONT CENSOR!
You might be looking at a future billionaire. I wouldn't be surprised if this little science girl in the garage makes it big!
Two words... Solar still. Cheap effective. All you need is dirty or salt water and a solar still and BAM. Done. Problem fixed. I don't understand why we don't get more water from the ocean using this simple solar process.
Only auto generated captions? Something must be wrong...
America has clean water from the tab? I hear all the time that it's saturated with chlorine and there have been too many incidents with heavy metals, fracking and other abominations ruining the water.
Congratulation, It that the world need, Young to do things that help our planet. this is make difference! congratulation Deepika Kurup. people around the world is smart , is not some country, but I'd like to see the news ONGs who help these peoples like Deepika Kurup for you study and research.
AkUcaludrcI&t=1m04s 1:04 "Images courtesy of shutterstock" I mean, at least you could use your own picture... wasn't impressed from the start, didn't change at the end
Important topic, but this ted talk sounds way too much like a high school essay
Human is the problem, simple.
I just looked her up, she's an 18 year old and a sophomore at Harvard!
careful, you dont want to end up like james from fallout 3
India is a backward country like China, they will never overtake the west

You know what I find stupid? The fact that on videos where the vast majority of people would obviously commend this young smart FEMALE scientist for all her accomplishments, TED leaves comments and ratings open but on stupid bullshit virtue signaling feminist ones where the majority of people know it's bullshit, the ratings and comments are curiously turned off. Hmmm funny isn't it lol.
Spare yourself the stupidity of most of these comments
