Akrit Jaswal’s intelligence has surprised many people. His greatest life goal has always been to find a cure for cancer and without further ado, to begin, he even came up with a brilliant idea to treat cancer at the age of 5 years itself. This idea that he invented related to treating cancer with gene therapy – it allowed him to go back and forth to the hospitals and watch the operation process.

As a result, Akrit Jaswal miraculously, without learning many surgical practices, was able to perform surgical operations well at the age of 7 years. It was his first operation that gave Akrit Jaswal recognition and fame in India and all over the whole world, to the extent that he was invited to be a special guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show as he became the world’s youngest surgical doctor at the age of 7.

Soon Akrit had a reputation for being a medical genius. He was sponsored and mentored by Mr. B. R. Rahi, the Chairman of Secondary Education in Dharamshala. Just four years later, Akrit broke yet another record. He became the youngest student to gain admission into a university at the age of 11, where he began to pursue a degree in science.

It was Akrit’s keenness to find a cure for cancer that brought him worldwide attention and admiration. The Firecracker Films that investigated the story about Akrit invited him to the Imperial College in London to meet leading medical researchers. The organization invited him to exchange ideas about medical research and assess his intelligence. He was tested by various experts from various fields such as biology, surgery, urology and psychology and was tested by IQ focus teams and inquisitors. According to the results, Akrit was found to have a huge potential in the medical world and was exceptional in verbal and numeracy tests. However, he still needed to be guided by surgeons who were competent in their field as his practical tests turned out to be a bit poor, especially in pattern matching. Akrit is indeed an exceptional medical marvel, who is still focused on finding a cure for cancer. Currently he’s studying Bioengineering at IIT Kanpur.
