She is just six years old, but she is already a human search engine in the making. Meet child prodigy Meghali Malbika Swain who has all the information about geography at her finger tips.

Ask her the name of any country and its neighboring countries, Meghali would blink for a moment, imagine their location in the map and effortlessly tell you the names. If you are not impressed, then go on and ask her a country’s capital, its currency and its major mountains or rivers. She will not disappoint you.

If anybody thinks she has memorized world geography after being tutored intensely, then he is wrong. As parents, we don’t belive in burdening the child at such a tender age.
