Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has a “new friend” who is fluent in three different languages – no mean feat for someone who is just five-years-old. At the age of five, Hiten Kaushik can speak French, English and Sanskrit with equal ease, impressing not just Mr Sisodia but thousands of social media users. The deputy chief minister of Delhi shared two photos with the prodigy on his Twitter profile this Thursday. “Today, I made a new little friend. At the age of five, he is fluent in three different languages: French, Sanskrit, and English,” he wrote.
“It was really nice to meet you, Hiten,” Mr Sisodia added.
The photos show him interacting with the five-year-old, who dressed up for the meeting in a blue jacket and red bow tie.
