WTF? I mean, this kid is truely a miracle! I found an article on Akrit with the heading – “Pass me the scalpel, mummy!”. As funny as it sounds. Its true, this guy is really into surgeries and medical research. And here I am who thinks I have accomplished something every time my code compiles! At his age, i was playing with kids in the street. I remember having a gold fish. What else? yeah. I used watch a lot of movies. And here’s this kid who is trying to find a cure for Cancer? Wow!
This astonishing film follows 12-year-old Akrit Jaswal as he researches cures for cancer in his Delhi laboratory, which was set up by his proud parents. We see him jetting to the UK to meet top British scientists, who give their verdicts on the young genius, as well as psychologists who assess the effects these achievements could be having on his childhood. Akrit comes from a small village in northern India. He is thought to have an IQ higher than Einstein; at three, he was reciting Shakespeare. At seven, dressed in surgical garb that swamped his tiny frame, the precocious youngster performed his first surgical operation, declaring, “Today, I am very much happy to have an opportunity to serve the poor community.”
Akrit – I’ve never met you. But hope to. Someday! Untill then, keep going buddy! 🙂
Note to myself: Remember to kill self 😉 .
