Deepalaya, one of the largest NGOs of Delhi, organized an event where we got the opportunity to meet child prodgies ‘Tanishq and Tiara’ who have achieved many milestones at a very young age; they are the members of the renowned MENSA organisation – which admits members only when a person gets more than 98 percentile on any recognised intelligence quotient test.
Today they visited Deepalaya School, Kalkaji Extension to address our students. The Chief guests were Tanishq, 16, a TEDx speaker and Tiara, 13, an amazing singer who has performed in several countries. They were accompanied by Taji Abraham and Bijou Abraham, their parents. Amonsgt others present were founder member Mr. T M Abraham, Dr. Sakhi John our board member, our Executive Director, Mrs Jaswant Kaur and our secretary & Chief Executive Mr. A.J Philip.
They were given a warm welcome with a traiditional Tilak. The program started with the lighting of the lamp and a welcome song by the school Choir.
Thereafter our Executive Director, Mrs Jaswant Kaur, gave the welcome speech in which she appreciated the efforts of Tanishq and Tiara.
Our secretary and Chief Executive, A.J Philip inspired the audience with his motivational words followed by a short performance by the School choir. Everyone was curious to listen to Tanishq, who told the students his story, the struggle he had to face for getting admission in various universities and colleges. His mantra for success is his curiosity to know new things. Tanishq is right now pursuing his P.hd. at US Davis. He expressed his desire to become the US president one day.
Next, Tiara enthralled the audience with her mesmerising voice. She sang an English and a German song so beautifully even with a sore throat. There was pin drop silence in the hall. She can sing in 9 different languages. Mr. C.P Davis, principal of Deepalaya School Kalkaji, proposed the Vote of thanks followed by National Anthem. Thereafter, students and teachers asked a lot of questions to Tanishq and Tiara about their journey and their lifestyle and they answered all the questions very patiently.
It was a day of joy as they both of them truly motivated our students.
