An extraordinary newspaper clip


MADHUBANI, INDIA, March 29, 2007: Rishiprada, a five-year old girl from Raima village in Madhubani District, Bihar, has memorized the entire Bhagavad Gita; she also knows many other Sanskrit verses that she recites with full clarity of the language. 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 Bhagavad Gita and amazingly, she did not disappoint him. Her father, Shatrumardan Chaudhary, has suggested that in view of her unique talent, the Government should come forward to help for her education.
