When we think of child prodigies, we usually think of one exceptional skill or talent they have that sets them apart from their peers. However, today’s episode of BYJU’S Young Genius features two hugely talented individuals who are skilled and talented in more ways than one. Whether it’s a different style of classical dance or the easy way to solve both math and logic questions, these young prodigies are worth watching and applauding.
Tune into this genius’s classic dance moves –
Kozhikode’s 14-year-old dancer Nila Nath She is trained in three dance forms – Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Mohiniyattam. She especially enjoys and is focused on Mohiniyattam which is all about expressions. When she performs two different styles of classical dance on the same subject, even famous guest choreographer Geeta Kapoor can’t help but exclaim her jealousy of Nila.
Nila’s dance story started tragically when she lost her mother when she was only three years old. Her mother was a dancer but couldn’t pursue it any further and her biggest dream was to see Nila become a dancer. Her father made Nila’s mother’s dream come true and the collection of trophies in her room and the words of encouragement from her teachers testify to her talent.
Nila has given major classical dance performances in 12 states and hopes to cover all states in the coming years and continue her career as a classical dancer. With so much talent at age 14, you can only imagine the heights she will reach in the future.
Finding logic for this young math wizard †
Kiaan Sawant from Mumbai may look small – he’s only 10 years old, after all – but don’t let his size fool you. Kiaan can solve problems that most adults would scratch their heads at. After all, he is an Olympiad Champion in Mathematics, Science and Logic and has been honored as a “Little Master of Logics” and identified as one of the top 100 child prodigies of the world in 2021 according to The Child Prodigy Magazine.
Watching him casually walk around the set solving a complex equation on the board will leave you in awe of his talent from the get-go. Self-taught, Kiaan started demonstrating his talent in various competitions from the age of six and even went on to teach wins and losses to his mother when she decided to show him the concept!
To assess his skills, the episode also features a meeting with Neelakantha Bhanu Prakash, who is known as the Human Calculator for his exceptional math skills and who holds several world records for it. Bhanu Prakash is also amazed at the clear and sound reasoning for some of the questions he poses to Kiaan, prophesying a great future for the young genius.
With so much talent in one episode, this edition of #BYJUSYoungGenius2 is inspiring on multiple levels. Watch the entire episode here.
