Harshwardhan Zala is the only son of his homemaker mother and his accountant father.
When he was 10 years old, he created a remote control which could operate and control home appliances wirelessly.
At that time, there were no gadgets like his available in the market.
When Harshwardhan was 14 years old, he designed a smart solution that allowed drones to both detect and defuse landmines in war fields.
This can save many lives, especially since there are over 100 million active landmines around the world.
Now 15 years old, Harshwardhan is always looking to find technological solutions to save lives across the globe.
Harshwardhan would always be reading books about the problems in the world.
Whenever he could, he would visit a nearby cyber café for hours, watching YouTube videos about these problems.
He did not have access to the Internet at home. One day, Harshwardhan saw a video that showed how people die from exploding, undetected landmines.
He looked into this issue, and he found out that researchers had still not come up with a solution to this problem.
Harshwardhan worked on a prototype to solve this problem and went to different companies to tell them about his solution.
However, none of them took him seriously. While some companies advised Harshwardhan to complete his education, others outright dismissed him.
Now, Harshwardhan has founded his own company, thanks to the money that his parents put together.
He is the CEO of this company, known as Aerobotics7 Tech Solutions. Harshwardhan’s drone has been unveiled. read more
