Noble Laureate, Kailash Satyarthi facilitates 50 child prodigies


Children, sometimes, astonish us with their exceptional talent and recognition encourages them to do more. 50 such budding talents were felicitated at the Global Child Prodigy Award 2020 held in New Delhi. The awards were presented by Nobel Peace Laureate Shri Kailash Satyarthi and Dr. Kiran Bedi Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry.

Addressing the gathering Kailash Satyarthi said, “It is an honor to award these young prodigies today. I would want to extend my congratulations to the parents of these prodigies who have supported their children. I would request the parents to not be an instructor to your children but to be a guide to them. Parents should adopt the ideology of 3R, Recognize, Respect and Reward towards their children instead of the 3I, Imposition, Instruction, and Impeach.”

A total 100 students were selected to be part of the list of 100 exceptional prodigies of the world 2020, out of those 100, 50 were felicitated.
