As kids, we were always told to score good marks in school, especially in 10th standard. This would also be a benchmark in determining how successful we’d be in the future.

But this 17-year-old boy from Gujarat is proving it wrong.

According to a report by ANI, Prince Panchal from Vadodara, who failed in 10th class, has made 35 model planes that can be operated with the help of remote control.


Prince failed in all 6 subjects in his 10th standard board exams. While he was sitting idle at home, he began using the internet and learned how to make these model planes.

He made his first ever lightweight plane model using flex material used in hoardings and banners.


Prince also has a YouTube channel where he posts these videos regularly. Despite making these model planes, he is criticised by people for not clearing his 10th board exams.

In conversation with ANI, Prince said:

I want to clear class 10 first. I feel heaviness in my head, when I sit to study. People in my colony call me ‘Taare Zameen Par’ wala ladka.

People are appreciating this kid for putting his talents to the right use and criticising our education system for not accommodating kids like him.

After reading his story, don’t you think there’s got to be a way to promote talent like this instead of focussing just on marks?
