NEW DELHI, MARCH 17 (ENA) Firdaus, a five-year-old girl from a minority community in Odisha, has recently topped the Bhagawad Gita recitation contest.

After Muslim clerics in Assam issued a fatwa against 16-year-old reality singing star, Nahid Afrin in Assam, a five-year-old girl from a minority community in the coastal district of Kendrapara in Odisha has topped the Bhagawad Gita recitation contest.

Firdaus was miles ahead of her competitors. Besides, at one go, she recited the Gita with consummate ease without stopping. Her pronunciation was immaculate

Urmila Kar, head mistress of Sovaniya residential school, said "From the very day she was enrolled here, Firdaus has shown spark of brilliance in academics. She has a sharp memory power.
