Soborno Isaac Bari

Soborno is the recipient of the ‘Global Child Prodigy Award’ from Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. At the age of 4, Soborno had received recognition from former President Barack Obama for his accomplishments in math and science. At the age of 6, he had received recognition from Harvard University for his problem-solving abilities and was accepted into New York City’s gifted and talented program. 

Some are born talented, some work hard towards developing talent, while some spend their whole life searching for that one spark of fire which we all call passion. And then comes the rarest of the rare known as ‘God-gifted’ or ‘Natural Talent’ who are born with special capabilities, perplexing brainpower, and the ability to invent a solid foundation for any field of subject. These people are among the very few who are selective of any century and stay forever in the memory of the world for their contributions, creations, and achievements that help the humankind in upgrading the way we all see and perceive anything. 

We have among us an 8-years old Professor Soborno Isaac Bari, the Youngest Professor of the world and the Einstein of our time, to inspire us with his astonishing understanding of Science and Mathematics. Born on April 9, 2012, in New York, Soborno is a Bengali-American prodigy and has authored the book called ‘The Love’ in which he has tried to demolish the prejudice and hatred that stems out from religious differences and biases. It has been his attempt at spreading acceptance and love for all religions. This book is also an extension of his anti-terrorism campaign. 

Soborno is the recipient of the ‘Global Child Prodigy Award’ from Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. At the age of 4, Soborno had received recognition from former President Barack Obama for his accomplishments in math and science. At the age of 6, he had received recognition from Harvard University for his problem-solving abilities and was accepted into New York City’s gifted and talented program. 

In January 2020, he was also recognized by the Principal Dr. Anurshee Lokur of Ruia College, Mumbai University, where he then joined as a Visiting Professor of Physics. He was also interviewed by Hollywood Legend and Oscar-Nominated Malisa McCarthy at Warner Bros Studio for NBC Little Big Shots. He is the only Bengali to have appeared on the show. Dr. Lisa Coico, President of City College of New York, titled Soborno as the “Einstein of our time” for his achievement on a series of tests in math and science.

Soborno had started talking in full sentences when he was just 6 months old. At the age of 2, his parents recognized that he was able to solve Physics, Math, and Chemistry problems very easily, after which they started recording his videos and shared them on social media which caught the attention of some local TV channels and colleges in New York. He was then invited by Medgar Evers College Vice-President Jerald Posman for an interview. Voice of America (VOA) also noticed him and invited him for an interview and to test his brilliant abilities. He became the youngest person ever been interviewed by VOA since its birth in 1942.

This little kid aims at spreading love among people and in trying to help the current generation of students understand the thrilling side of indulging in Science and Mathematics. He believes anybody can become an inventor or a discoverer or even an exemplar in these subjects provided that they don’t give up and instead try hard to overcome the challenges one faces while dealing with difficult questions and problems. He believes in not giving up and it is also the motto he imparts.

Probably the only greatest problem he feels that exists in the world today is the unsolved problems of Math and Science. The anxiety one feels towards Math, the unwillingness to understand the concepts of Science, the helplessness of finding the world as not a good enough place to live, the hatred towards other people who belong to another community, and the challenge of fighting our fate and life circumstances in order to contribute towards taking up our human race a notch higher are few things that can be dealt with if only we, as a human race, are willing to do so.
