A nation can only hope to survive if it’s youth shows potential, and the young saplings of India seem ardent on proving their potential to help the nation rank among the superiors. Here are a few such zealous children, who with their passion and determination, forced millions to notice and appreciate their efforts.

Wouldn’t it be astonishing to witness a zeal to spread knowledge and help her peers, in a 9 year old girl? Well, Muskan Ahirwar is here to astonish you with her heart warming initiative, the “Bal Pustakalay”. The seeds of Bal Pustakalay were sown when the State Education Board visited the Durga Nagar slums in Bhopal, whereby the children of the slums were given books and other study materials. Muskan, with her thirst for knowledge and zeal to spread it among her peers, impressed the officials and thus, a student of class 3, Muskan, became the youngest librarian ever. The Bal Pustakalay, which runs out of Muskan’s backyard, becomes a haven for learning for the slum kids, once the sun goes down. Muskan, with the help of her parents and sister, keeps an account of the books and a systematic register of the issue and return of the books.
