Visalini who was born to Mr. S. Kalyana Kumaraswamy & Mrs. S. Sethu Ragamaliga was a wonder child right from her birth. She was a weak premature baby and was in incubator for long days. As a child she had to bear with many health problems. A majority of doctors had given up on her and stated that she would never speak throughout her life. This was very depressing and disheartening for her parents to such an extent that they had given up hope on her. But as every dark cloud has a silver lining, a Godsend Doctor suggested that her mother to talk to her for 20 hours per day. He quoted “Talk to your child today and the world will talk about her tomorrow”.This theory worked wonderfully for Visalini. Due to the unfailing and continuous efforts of her mother, baby Visalini finally spoke her first word when she was 9 months old and stunned all those who once said there was no future for this child. She began to speak very fast and clear since then. On her first birthday , she recited Sanskrit slokas at local temples, astonishing everyone around.
Her mother used to teach her a lot of things in Tamil which completely shaped her mind and sharpened her retention capacity. When she was 2 years old, she was way more intelligent and confident than any other child and was brilliant enough to deliver her first stage program at her home town, with an audience of about 1000 people. Her mother was overwhelmed at her daughter’s ability of retaining things and answering questions quickly and at ease. Doctor suggested Visalini to take an IQ Test so that her extra ordinary mental ability and growth could be assessed. Surprisingly, she had an IQ of 225.
Hard work and determination helped her achieve success and chase her dreams. Endless patience helped her achieve what all she has in her hands today. Also, the great sacrifice of her parents for educating their only child proved worthwhile as Visalini flourished to be a brilliant child, much better than children of her age. Visalini’s parents always went an extra mile and did everything possible for nurturing the genius in their child. This shows the amount of love and responsibility parents hold in bringing up this child prodigy, ensuring and desiring the best of everything for her.
Visalini's adventurous voyage of achievements and accomplishments will never end.
