Vinay just posted an interesting video made, produced by Discovery Channel on grassroots innovators in India. The organization behind identifying and nurturing such innovators is Sristi:

SRISTI is a non-governmental organisation setup to strengthen the creativity of grassroots inventors, innovators and ecopreneurs engaged in conserving biodiversity and developing eco-friendly solutions to local problems

Sristi was founded by Prof. Anil Gupta, Kasturbhai Lalbhai Chair in Entrepreneurship at IIMA. He is a prolific social entrepreneur and a passionate activist. Prof. Gupta teaches a interesting SE course at IIMA, titled ‘Shodh Yatra’. As a part of this course, students walk through a particular region within India for a period of fifteen days, where they explore social and economic conditions, and discuss innovations that can lead to grassroots change.

Prof. Gupta’s blog and published work can be accessed here. Sristi has also has online database of grassroots innovations which can be found here.
