His parents Raj Kumar and Vinita Pandey noticed his excellence when he showed perfection and professionalism in handling instruments while his father had unassembled his old laptop for repair. he kept exploring everything without any excuse with the same focus. They wish to see him as a content creator, exploring his interest in areas in sharing on the web 10 years from now. Though he is a student of class 1, he can solve mathematical problems of class VI (prodigygame.com – level 100 for class VI).

He loves cycling, running, and boxing as his natural requirement of physical activity. Little Vedant plays, golf, baseball, and many more sports. He is interested in anything challenging and fun-oriented. He also knows to play many musical instruments. He is very social and emotional. His favorite toy is Lego EV3 and Arduino, with which he spends hours debugging and exploring several sensors. He has symbols of a ‘periodic table of elements’ committed to his memory and spends time learning more.
Vedant, now seven, continues to evince exceptional ingenuity with words and phrases in stories and poems. His sheer versatility is seeking newer terrains for intellectual exploration as his parents, guide, and nurture this rare gift. They make sure that he does what he loves. He has certifications in programming and basic artificial intelligence on code.org and has several fairly developed ideas for his robotic projects, which he wants to implement. All the skills that he now possesses are not a gift but a result of his hard work and curiosity to learn and excel. And yet he has miles and miles to go and achieve glories and pride for his family and himself. His parents play a very supportive role in his life and ensure that he doesn’t face any pressure from society’s expectations.
