K. Vishalini
11 year old K. Vishalini – a IT whiz-kid from Palayamkottai, Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, is blessed with an IQ of around 225. It is higher than that of the Guinness record holder, Kim Ung-Yong, whose IQ is around 210.

She has just returned home from an international seminar held at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK), Mangalore, where she was a special guest. Such invitations are pretty routine for her these days.

Her syllabus has been wrapped up well in advance. So this child prodigy has the time to visit engineering colleges to deliver lectures to B.E. and B.Tech students on the intricacies of computer science.
At seminars, many an IT expert has been foxed by this chit of a girl who has answers to complex questions.

When the girl’s parents heard of a boy who had secured admission in an engineering college after his Standard 8 exams.
“We approached Kalasalingam Engineering College. They asked us to bring a certificate from CCNA. Vishalini took the exam and got 90 per cent marks. It was a world record. She was only 10 years old. Earlier the youngest student to pass this exam was a 12-year-old boy from Pakistan, Irtaza Haider,” says Kumarasamy.

Both NITK of Mangalore and Kalasalingam Engineering College are now more than ready to welcome Vishalini. But her parents want the girl to enjoy her childhood for the next three years before thinking of entering a college campus.

But sadly “She did not find a place in the Guinness Book because the minimum age requirement is 14 years,” says her electrician-father, Kumarasamy.
Vishalini overcame her speech impairment with the help of her mother and now visits engineering colleges to deliver lectures to B.E. and B.Tech students on the intricacies of computer science.

Their only disappointment now is that the state and central governments have failed to recognise and appreciate Vishalini’s extraordinary achievements.

“If you Cannot Encourage Anyone, Never Ever Discourage, as that Might be a Reason for them to Go Up!“
