Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who flew morden India's first aeroplane in the air be included in school syllabus. Mr. Talpane flew an unmanned aeroplane in the year 1895 at Chowpaty, Mumbai, India that is 8 years before Wright Brothers first manned controlled flight. But as a matter of fact the nation as a whole is deprived of this crucial information.

The unmanned airplane took off and flew to a height of 1500 feet. Important people like Mahadeva Govinda Ranade and H H Sayaji Rao Gaekwad were present during the flight.

Hence we request the "Indian Department of Education" to take note of this vital information and include the same in our syllabus in an appropriate manner.

Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who flew India's first aeroplane in the air be included in school syllabus. Mr. Talpane flew an unmanned aeroplane in the year 1895, that is 8 years before Wright Brothers first manned controlled flight, but as a matter of fact the nation as a whole is deprived from this crucial information.

For a student of science and history it is important to read unbiased and complete information. People all over the world take painstaking efforts to invent crucial tools in order to make the life in our society better. Shivkar Bapuji Talpade's efforts was one among them. It is beyond any reasoning not to mention Shivkar Bapuji Talpade in our school books. Kindly sign the petition to try and include Shivkar Bapuji Talpade's information in our school books.
