The Google Boy!

Kautilya Pandit - this five year boy have gained popularity for his astonishing brain. He is also known as "The Google Boy", because of his memory. At the age around five years, he talks about the world geography, per capita income, gross domestic product, politics, economy, and answers questions on various topics with ease while others in his age are learning ABC and nursery rhymes. The super power kid was born on 12 December 2007, in Kharhar village of Jhajjar district, Harynana. The "little wonder" is studying at SD Harit Modern School at Kohand village, which is run by his father Satish Sharma. 

Once during their family trip to Agra, his father noticed that he was able to read the signboards very clearly and easily, which made his family surprise. His father said that "With the help of Sushil Rawal, a teacher, I introduced Kautilya to atlas during summer vacations this year. To my utter surprise, Kautilya memorised names of all countries, capitals and oceans at once. Later, we noticed that he recalled everything uttered before him without any difficulty". His marvelous super power of grasping and recalling things amazed one and all.

Psychologist from Kurukshetra University has approached Kautilya for some research and memory test, Kautilya has already surprised many researchers before and they have marked him a child genius. It is believed that Kautilya would have IQ around 130 which is very rare at his age group.  Mr. Amitabh Bachchan posted on Twitter on the night of October 25 after recording the KBC capsule featuring Pandit in Mumbai.On Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), Kautilya barely took a second to answer every question lobbed at him. In Kohand, he is now a celebrity. 

It all began, says Sharma, early this year when he decided to encourage children in his school to break the record set by a little European girl who could point out 150 countries on the world map. "I asked all the students to bring an atlas to school so they can be taught the location of various countries." By evening the next day, Kautilya had mastered the world map. Twenty days later, he knew the atlas like the back of his hand," said Sharma.

Kautilya's curiosity about the world around him grew rapidly. He started picking up trivia about countries, capitals, their economics and geographic zones. When you meet the Class I student, he asks you seriously if India can become the world's biggest economy by 2018.Kautilya, who has two older siblings Mridual (9) and Deeksha (7), obviously works on his genius. After school he diligently sits down to read for an hour. His "best friend", he says, is his grandfather, JK Sharma, a retired teacher. "For a few months, I used to wake up at 4am to go for a walk with my grandfather and discuss my studies with him but these days, I get up at 6am," says Kautilya.

For his exceptional intelligence quotient (IQ) and memory, Kautilya was recently awarded Rs 10 lakh by the Haryana government. But the real challenge for the Sharmas is ensuring that the child gets the kind of education he deserves. "Sometime Kautilya says he wants to become an IAS officer, at other times, a scientist or astronaut," says his father. The fickleness, at least, is natural to Kautilya's age.
