Washington: With terrific memory skills and mathematical abilities, a brainy Indian-American boy, nine-year-old Arnav Krishna, is set to compete in the final round of Lifetime Television’s competition “Child Genius: Battle of the Brightest”.
Arnav Krishna from New York stands a chance to win a whopping $100,000 college fund and the title of Child Genius 2016, the American bazaar reported on Wednesday.
The winner of the competition will be declared on Thursday night.
Arnav’s mother Seema Krishna is a marketing executive, and father Vijay Krishna works as a financial services executive.
The Lifetime Television cited Arnav as someone “with an eye to becoming an architect and a mathematician when he is older” and as one who is always inquisitive and bears a researcher’s instinct.
“Arnav is off to a good start with successive rankings in national math competitions,” Lifetime Television was quoted as saying.
