Once when the entire compartment was on fire the railway authorities stopped him from conducting experiments in the train. This did not prevent him from inventing the electric bulb. Still, he found his ways and means to achieve his goal.

Young Edison was a self driven individual. He had tremendous inner fire to achieve. He worked very hard to achieve his goal. Poverty or lack of laboratory and equipments did not stop him from achieveing his goal. He has not only invented Electric bulb but he has also invented phonograph, kinetoscope, dictaphone, carbon microphone etc. Lack of schooling and improper facilities did not deter young Edison from inventing all this.
