Born into a low-income family, Niteesh had to drop out of school in class IV. But his love for learning and passion for science helped him bounce back when his family migrated from Bihar in 2017. The same year, he was admitted to Literacy India’s GDD programmme for class V where he quickly bridged the gap and joined Vidyapeeth in class VIII.
Niteesh is a gifted child, always displaying outstanding academic performance. He excels in extracurricular activities, too. His talent in public speaking was showcased in the inter-house poetry competition. He actively participates in class discussions, keeps himself abreast of syllabus requirements and reads to improve subject understanding.
He transitioned smoothly from Hindi, to English medium education. He learned Vedic mathematics and has developed his own technique of calculating day and date. He takes a keen interest in Mathematics and Science and is curious about working of machines. He once made a working model of a tempo and a cooler, innovating all the way. Inspired by the works of Thomas Edison, Niteesh aims to become a scientist.
