In young age when most of the teens are busy in using candy cam & filters, this guy comes out of syllabus and surprised everyone!
Though it didn’t happened recently but at the age of 22 years, this smiling young guy who hardly look like a professor, Tathagat Avatar Tulsi has become India’s youngest assistant professor at the renowned Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai.
Tulsi, who hails from Patna, completed his schooling at the age of nine and had a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree by the time he turned 10.
We don’t have any idea how this genius guy did that? But this gifted youngster named among the world’s seven most gifted youngsters in 2003. he further went on to get a Masters in Science (MSc) at the age of 12, receiving a doctorate from the Indian Institute of Science at 21. Take a long breath!!
In an interview to rediff Tulsi said that “I am delighted because IIT Bombay is a very reputed institute, not only in India but the world over. I was offered to teach as an Assistant Professor and I am proud that at the age of 22 I am the youngest professor in India.”
Tulsi chose the IIT over job offers from Waterloo University in Canada, and the Indian Institute of Science Education & Research (IISER) in Bhopal.
In 2010 when TOI interviewed Tathagat, he was smiling while answering the question about his future plans and said “Fifty years is too far away to think about and plan for. But I do know what I want in the next five years,”.
