Last week, a news article caught me off guard. It disclosed some researchers, from Himachal Pradesh, India, that are in a run to patent a recipe for Mandyali Dham – a traditional community feast.
Mulayam Gulgule Kumar, the owner of Krishna Sweets, left me in total surprise this morning again when I found a design patent under his name for a Jalebi – a spiral-shaped Indian Sweet that’s deep-fried first and then dipped in sugar syrup called Chasni in vernacular.
Krishna Sweets is a household name in many cities across Uttar Pradesh. It has outlets in major cities like Lucknow, Kanpur, and Noida with HQ at Delhi which is now its R&D center, too.
“My son works in the field of patents where his works involve consulting top companies in patent monetization deals. It inspired me. I would like to get similar monetization rights for my invention, too”, said Mulayam Gulgule when I reached out to him via WhatsApp.
The design of the Jalebi contains seven rounds similar to that in the Mahabharata Chakravyuh – a military tactic mentioned in the Mahabharata.
“Hindu Sastra are what I read during all those years. I derived my inspiration from there, too” — Mulayam Gulgule
It’s obvious from the design that this Jalebi is going weigh 3 to 4 times more than a normal one. I suggest you have a look at the design patent here: Click to check Mulayam Gulgule’s Design Patent.
