Born on July 20, 1999, Satyam is from a small village of Aara district in Bihar. At the age of five, he had learnt the shlokas of the Bhagawad Geeta and the Ramayana. At the same time, he had also mastered the Mathematics subject. Six years ago, he came to Kota with his uncle where the M.D. Of a coaching institute cognized his talent and decided to shape his future. He promised to take care of his educational needs. Since then, Satyam is residing in Kota with his uncle, aunt and Grand mother.
And the road to success was not so smooth. Many a times, there were objections on his age. But after positive reports by officials, he was granted special permissions to appear in the examination. And he proved himself special.
Yet, the twelve-year-old genius is disappointed about his result.
