Lucknow, Dec 9 (UNI) Shailendra is the youngest BCA graduate of the country and his younger sibling Sushma one of the youngest matriculates of India.

While they have received recognition at the national level, their feats have now been recognised internationally. Japan's Tokyo Broadcasting Systems is taking them to Tokyo for a TV show slated later this month.

A team of TBC was in the city today to make a documentary on the Verma siblings. The documentary would be aired on the channel ahead of their interview by a famous Japanese magician.

At 14, Shailendra has become the youngest Bachelor in Computer Applications, while his sister Sushma (7) has become one of the youngest matriculate in the country by securing 58 per cent in the class X Boards.

Born in February 2000, Sushma cleared the Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Board examination this year by securing 354 marks out of 600, missing a first division by just six marks.

The youngest matriculate record was held so far by Patna's Tathagat Avatar Tulsi, who accomplished the feat when he was nine, according to the Limca Book of Records.

Their father, Tej Bahadur Verma, says he is the happiest man in the world. A labourer in Rae Bareilly Mr Verma shifted to Lucknow so that his daughter could get more scope and exposure. He was later given a job in Sushma's school.
