The competition was held at the premises of the ISKCON temple in Kendrapara.

According to a report published by The Hindu, the temple authorities took permission of Khatun’s parents because of religious reasons.



“To our utter surprise, Firdaus’ mother not only gave her consent, but also remained present all through the competition,” said Akshaya Pani.

Firdaus scored 97.5 out of 100 in the competition in which participants had to memorize shlokas, pronounce them correctly and express devotion. Participants were also judged by audience preference.

The little girl is hailed as a very bright student at her school, Sobhaniya Sikshashrama, in Kendrapara where she studies in Standard I. She regularly recites the Srimad Bhagavad Gita as part of the prayer class.

Her school’s principal says that she is too young to read the shlokas but has an incredible memory which helps her remember shlokas chanted during prayer. The school teaches the students moral lessons from all religions.
