E-Charka

Everyone in India is familiar with charka, the yarn spinning wheel. Innovator Rajsekhar applied for a patent for his E-Charka.The invention here is about producing electricity from the same charaka along with production of yarn. The manual motive power used for operating the charaka is connected to a desired phased electrical generator. The generated electricity is then stored in a storage battery. This stored electrical energy is used for operating Light using a LED.

I wonder if this patent qualifies the non-obviousness criteria. If an expert in the field would come up with the same design without being aware of the patent apriori, should this really be considered a novel, non-obvious invention?

This seems to be just integration of two well-known devices, a charkha, and a generator. Manual crank-shaft rotation to generate electricity has been used in many places (such as OLPC: One Laptop Per Child).
