She also knows other Sanskrit verses

MADHUBANI: A small girl of Raima village in Madhubani District of Bihar has learnt the entire Bhagwad Gita by heart and also knows many other Sanskrit verses that she recites with full clarity of the language.

Indeed what Rishiprada, a five-year-old girl has achieved is extraordinary.

Unique talent

Dr. Awadhesh Prasad Chaudhary, Rishiparada's great grandfather said she has been fond of learning verses which in turn prompted him to teach her all the 700 verses of Bhagwad Gita and amazingly, she did not disappoint him.

Her father Shatrumardan Chaudhary urged that in view of her unique talent, the Government should come forward to help for her education.

He informed that he had written a couple of letters to the President Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam but he is yet to receive a reply from the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

``Not only the State Government but the entire country should be proud of her,'' said Shatrumardan.

Scholars

Savita Devi, her mother said that Rishiprada is highly talented from a very early age and has the quality to grasp things quickly.

With her talent Rishiprada has astonished many scholars including Sanskrit pundits who on learning about her achievements, come to hear her recitations.- ANI
