Chandigarh: A farmer from Punjab’s Bathinda gave wings to his childhood passion for flying by venturing into the field of aeromodelling a few years back and has now tied up with a number of universities to teach nuances of aeronautics to students.

Yadwinder Singh Khokhar (49) has been making models of various aircraft from high-density thermocol.

He has also received various awards for his creativity and innovation.

Khokhar hails from Siryewala village in sub-Tehsil Bhagta Bhai Ka in Bathinda district.

He says as a child he wanted to fly like a bird.

"I wanted to fly like a bird. Somewhere this desire, this passion remained even when I took up farming in 1996 after completing my studies," he says.

Khokhar did his initial schooling at schools in Bathinda and Muktsar and passed higher classes at the Punjab Public School, Nabha. He graduated from DAV College, Jalandhar, and later did a diploma in computer application from Bathinda.
