A grade 7 boy from Maharashtra has bagged the Pradhan Mantri Bal Puraskar Award 2020 for his exceptional Math ability.
When we say that age is just a number, we fail to understand the true essence of it. Some people say that they're not old enough to achieve big while a few others say that they are not young enough to learn new skills. But when we read about a 98-year old cracking the 10th Std. Board exam and a 5-year old setting the Guinness World Record, we should at least realize that one need not show age as a barrier to achieving anything in life. Here we have brought before you one such example again.
When we say that a seventh-grade boy has bagged more than 200 medals so far and that his rental flat is not sufficient to house his awards and medals, don't think I'm not drawing a longbow. He is Devesh Bhaiya, a resident of Jalgaon, Maharashtra. From Jalgaon to Rashtrapati Bhavan, the wonderful journey of this young talent is sure to impress and inspire you.
A Brainy Kid:
Born to Pallavi Bhaiya, an interior designer and Pankaj Bhaiya, an architect, Devesh Bhaiya is a seventh-grade student of Allen Career Institute.
Right from his tender years, Devesh has been passionate about STEM research. He loves mathematics and views it not just as a subject in his curriculum but a pathway to excellence. He loves to play with numbers and gamble with the alphabet. Calculus, that turns out to be a headache factor for even the graduation students is Devesh's best friend. Not just doing the sums as prescribed in the books, he keeps experimenting new ways and builds new methods to solve the sums easily. He invents new tricks and formulae as well.
A multi-faceted Learner:
Devesh who is currently studying in Kota has recently participated in South-eastern Mathematics Olympiad and secured Gold. Also, from Thailand International Mathematics Olympiad, he brought home Gold. He secured 1st rank in International Mathematics Olympiad. Also, he has done research about The Light Pollution and its Effects and won a gold medal for the same in the Homibhabha Junior Science Examination.
India's Prestigious Award For This Child Prodigy:
We all know that on the occasion of Republic Day, the Government of India felicitates children with exceptional talents who have made significant contributions in the fields of art, culture, social service, innovation, etc. Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar Award is bestowed upon those little invincibles who achieve beyond their age. Devesh Bhaiya, for his excellence in the field of scholastics and for participation and achievements in various Olympiads was awarded the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar 2020. The following are the words posted by Narendra Modi ji on his twitter about Devesh Bhaiya.
Youngsters like Devesh Pankaj Bhaiya are the reason for my optimism about India. He is just 12 and has already written an internationally acclaimed work on light pollution. He's also topped science Olympiads and competitions. I congratulate him on winning the Bal Puraskar.
An Aspiring Engineer:
Devesh Bhaiya is aiming to secure a seat in one of the IITs and become an engineer. This young boy's mother who is an interior designer quit her profession to support his studies in Kota. The boy appreciates this and is indebted to his mother.
"I understand the sacrifice made by my mother and I dedicate all my success to her,” he said in an interview.
Let's wish many more accolades to this young talent in future and may his contributions benefit the community.
