Guwahati: Monishwaran Maheswaran, a young innovator from Andhra Pradesh, was recognised as the âWai Wai Glocal Teen Hero India 2019â at a function held in Guwahati, Assam on Wednesday.
The award ceremony was attended by over 250 personalities from different walks of life, such as diplomats, politicians, entrepreneurs, educators and youth leaders, among others, at Hotel Taj Vivanta in Guwahati.
Maheswaran, a high-school whiz-kid with a keen interest in mathematics and computer science, successfully invented a system-based machine that helps virtually impaired individuals to navigate the surroundings.
The teen prodigy is helping the unprivileged kids of the nation by providing them with books and other study materials under an initiative entitled, âDo it for Knowledgeâ. Another noble initiative, âRunâ, focuses on helping children suffering from cancer.
Excelling in several Olympiads, Maheswaran is also a TEDx speaker, guest lecturing on Quantum Computing. He also went to Harvard University to work under Prof Oliver Knill of Mathematical Sciences.
Maheswaran was declared winner from among the top six finalists in the competition, the other five being Garvita Gulhati (19 years, environmentalist, Andhra Pradesh), Kaushal Gohil (19 years, youth activist, Gujarat), Rupam Ghosh (18 years, entrepreneur, West Bengal), Kunal Chandiramani (15 years, entrepreneur, Madhya Pradesh) and Lakshya Chhabra (19 years, entrepreneur, Delhi).
