MUMBAI (NEWS): It looks like the Beti B is a precocious child.
Just 16 months old, Aaradhya Bachchan, the daughter of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek, can recite the Gayatri Mantra fluently, according to her celebrity mom.
A local daily quoted a source as saying that Ashwariya recently told a group of friends at a recent event in Mumbai that “Aaradhya can not only recite numbers from 1-10 and alphabet from A-Z, she has learnt to say the whole of Gayatri Mantra as well.’’
“At the party thrown in honour of Steven Spielberg last week Aishwarya was asked about her baby and when one guest asked her if she was talking already, now that she was one, Ash told her proudly how her little girl could recite the Gayatri Mantra fluently,’’ the DNA told its source as saying.
Indeed, Aishwarya has reportedly begun home education for her daughter. According to reports, she is taking little Aaradhya through educational CDs she bought from the US.
Even Amitabh Bachchan recently wrote on his blog how tech savvy his little granddaughter is.
“Aaradhya turns on the iPad to her favorite nursery rhythms programme all by herself… picks up remotes wherever she can see one and points it to the TV in a pretense to put it on,’’ the Big B wrote.
“What a fantastic generation of our world and what a pity we shall never be there to see it evolve into a world that shall be governed and controlled by little kids and their deep acumen at the cyber.’’
