American politician, diplomat, and geopolitical consultant Henry Kissinger used to introduce Bangladesh to the Americans as a 'bottomless basket.' But over the years, the country has turned around under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina. Now Bangladesh is known to the world as a role model of development. The world saw the light of another wonder of Bangladesh. Soborno Isaac Bari, an American citizen of Bangladeshi descent who is only nine years old, surprised the Americans as well as the world. You might want to know, what did he do?
Let's get to know the details.
Who is Soborno Bari?
Soborno Isaac was born on April 9, 2012, in New York. Although he took birth in the USA, his roots are from Bangladesh. His father Rashidul Bari belonged to Chittagong before being an immigrant in the USA. He is currently a part-time professor of mathematics at Baruch College, New York City University, and also a physics teacher at New Vision Chatter High School for Advanced Math and Science. Soborno's mother, Remon Bari alias Shaheda Bari holds a degree in accounting from the Bronx Community College.
How did he get the name Soborno Isaac Bari?
Soborno started talking in full sentences when he was only 6 months old. At the age of 2, he could solve math, physics, and chemistry problems promptly. After that, his parents started sharing Soborno's problem-solving videos on social media, which caught the attention of some local TV channels in New York. Voice of America (VOA) invited Soborno for an interview and tested his brilliant abilities. Nevertheless, Soborno is the youngest person ever to appear in a VOA interview.
After the interview, Soborno's parents received a message to change their son's name to Issac, after Sir Isaac Newton. However, Rashidul and Shahida did not pay much attention to this. Later they discovered their son's ability and named him 'Soborno Isaac Bari.' In 2014, New York City College President Lisa Koiko named Soborno "Einstein of Our Time."
Why is he special?
The boy who was yet to start school could solve the complex problems of mathematics, physics, and chemistry easily. He could also read English books without formal education of literacy! Fascinated by his one-and-a-half-year-old son's mathematical talent, Rashidul Bari started giving his son advanced math and science lessons. And at the age of only two, he memorized the periodic table of chemistry.
This incredible ability spread among the students and teachers of the City University of New York. The talent of this wonder boy also spread on social media. At the age of only three, Soborno has astonished the whole world by showing his skills in these three subjects.
