An Indian software engineer believes his new humanoid robot can lead the country into the next technological revolution, claiming the makeshift model is the first of its kind to speak Hindi. And the robot even has a belief in god.
Ranjit Srivastava from the city of Ranchi in north eastern India created Rashmi, the robot fluent in Hindi, Bhojpuri, Marathi and English, with a mere Rs 50,000 ($700). Developed over the course of two years, Rashmi was inspired by Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen, according to The Hindustan Times.
Rashmi uses linguistic interpretation and facial recognition systems to inform its social cues which allow the robot to engage in a decent level of conversation. Footage of the humanoid shows Rashmi pondering love and spirituality, telling creator Srivastava that she has a spiritual and intellectual side.
Srivastava hopes Rashmi will eventually be fine tuned into a global product to showcase India’s robotics capabilities. “I want to show the world that India can also make this kind of robot and India has also the capabilities which can contribute in the advancement of the robotic world, which is the next revolution,” Srivastava said.

Law enforcement sources say they responded to a home alarm at the singer's home Monday night. multiple units can be seen parked outside the property. An LAPD helicopter was also spotted hovering about Rihanna's home in response to the alarm.
Sources say it was eventually determined the alarm was accidentally triggered, though Rihanna was not home at the time.
As for the heavy police presence, were told it was because of the history of intruder's at Rihanna's crib.
An intruder was arrested at the property back in May after he allegedly broke in and spent the night. The man allegedly told cops he was there to have sex with the singer -- though she was not home at the time -- but he did not intend to do it forcefully.
The man was eventually charged with felony stalking and burglary.
Tab Hunter -- the 1950s heartthrob actor -- died after his heart gave out but, according to his death certificate, he was also battling a debilitating disease ... prostate cancer.
According to the doc ,Tab died from cardiogenic shock ... which is when the blood suddenly can't pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. Another contributing factor to his death was a massive pulmonary embolism. The doc also says he had prostate cancer.
The actor known for his surfer-boy looks and roles in "Damn Yankees" and "The Burning Hills" died last month -- 3 days shy of his birthday -- at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
Tab always felt he would have been blackballed from Hollywood if people had discovered he was gay, so he later revealed in his memoirs that he had studio setup relationships with women.
Tab was 86.
Casanova is a wanted man in NYC for an alleged brutal assault that left a woman with a busted jaw and stitches in her face
A warrant was issued for the arrest of the "Set Trippin" rapper late Friday night. The alleged victim, Niya Rucker, claims she was attacked by Casanova and his crew at Good Stuff Diner around 4:40 AM last week.
We're told Casanova thought Rucker was filming him with her phone and became enraged, and an attempt to stop her and take her phone turned violent.
Law enforcement says Casanova and an accomplice assaulted Rucker -- leaving her with a possible fracture in her jaw and a facial laceration requiring 4 stitches -- and one of them put her in a sleeper hold.
Rucker told PIX11 News she wasn't filming the rapper at all but was simply shooting her meal for Instagram Live. She also says she's certain she was attacked by Casanova and could identify him by the chains he wears.
So far, no word from Casanova
