Genius at work

I highly recommend checking this video out. It is about Akrit Jaswal, a twelve year old Indian boy who routinely performs surgery based on knowledge acquired from reading reams of medical books and journals!

I’m sure everyone has read historical anecdotes about geniuses and the troubles they undergo through to get their message through. What is fascinating is that we now have a live example of such a story unfolding amongst us. From the video it is clear that Akrit is really confident and knows what the heck he wants to do and the establishment does not know how to deal with him; so it decides to undermine his confidence and slow him down. I think that simply sucks!

I think in this Web 2.0 world that we live in, we have a really unique opportunity to collectively support Akrit in his quest. Stay tuned for more details. If you would like to be involved, please drop me a comment.
