Genius Kid- Adi Putra from Malaysia

Adi Putra checks mails at home in Gombak District, Selangor State, Malaysia, on Oct. 7, 2009.

While other children of his age go to primary school and do basic calculations, Adi Putra has already become a CEO of his own company. Since he was very little, Adi Putra was spotted with super high intelligence quotient and remarkable memory, especially on mathematics.

As a 10-year-old boy standing only 1.3 meters tall, Adi Putra has accumulated over 200 solutions of calculation, with which he can figure out the product of a five-digit number and a seven-digit number in two minutes without using a calculator. He can also remember any number with more than 40 digits and keep the best record of 70 digits. Even college professors come to consult him about rapid calculation and invite him to teach at universities.

But little genius also has his own problem which can't be solved in a short period. On one side, Adi doesn't need primary school education any more, on the other side, he can not go to high school or college either because he doesn't know how to communicate with classmates totally not in his age.

Now Adi learns chemistry, physics, biology, language, music and other studies himself at home, and surfs online every day for world trade information and foreign currency knowledge. In his inner world, Adi is still a child who likes playing games, watching TV programs and having fun with other kids. He doesn't like watch himself on TV and always feel loneliness and pressure. Adi said he wants to go to school and become a professor in Islamic Studies in the future.
