    Anne, even if he's not a native speaker, he was born and is being raised in an English speaking country, so it's not strange that his language skills are same as those of native speakers. Indians are way better than others in some subjects like maths. However, I've read that he and his sister have quite high IQ level.

    He is not an English native speaker but wooooo.... oh my!  Truly this kid is greatly blessed.

    Yeah... this kid really amazes me to the point of disbelieving that such a person exists.
