Meet Sushma Verma, a 15-year old young genius from the outskirts of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, who has made headlines by clearing MSc at the tender age of 15 years only. She completed her MSc.(Microbiology) from Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar (Central) University (BBAU).
She has created history by becoming the youngest person in the whole country to do so. Now she is taking admission in Phd and with that she will also be the youngest Phd scholar. Daughter of a sanitation worker who is employed in the same college where she studied her Msc, she has made her whole family proud with this achievement. She not only cleared the course, but also topped the class in the first, second and third semesters in spite of being the youngest in the class. Most of her classmates were at least eight to nine years older than her.
Her talent was discovered when she recited the Ramayana at a local school function at the age of two. She did her High school at the age of seven and then Bsc at the age of 13. She says “ I am not eligible of appearing in competitive exams but I am willing to peruse Phd in Environmental Microbiology”.
