India is a land of talents. Today's young generation is doing something, that big personalities are not able to do. No matter from where they belong to or their financial status, they are just making India and their parents feel proud. One such story is of 5 children coming from the slums of Mumbai who have been selected for the "First Global Challenge Robotics Olympics". Nikhat Khan, Pritam Thopte, Paras Pawte, Rohit Sathe and Sumit Yadav. All these children will represent India in the Robotics Olympics to be held in Geneva, Switzerland. Children from 180 countries are taking part in the Robotics Olympics, which will run from October 13 to 16.

The specialty of these 5 children is that all of them are financially very weak but mentally gifted. Everyone's age is between 14 and 17. Under the skill development scheme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, an NGO in Mumbai is developing the skills of these children in collaboration with a private company.

How they have been chosen?

Gaurav Arora, on behalf of Salaam Bombay (NGO), told in a conversation that the NGO Salaam Bombay in collaboration with Innovation Story (private company) has selected and trained these 5 children living in the slums of Mumbai through a talent hunt. Children have been given training related to robotics, in which they have made a robot named "Drona" after 3 months of training.

Drona robot is capable of doing many types of work. Along with this, Drauna is also equipped with technologies like launcher system as well as gyroscope. Not only this, this robot running fast on the ground can raise itself to a height of several feet. Their parents are very happy to see the success of their children. Parents want their children to illuminate the name of the country on the international stage along with the family. Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has also expressed his happiness over the selection of these children from Mumbai.
