Wasik Farhan-Roopkotha - World's youngest computer expert in Bangladesh

A six-year-old boy from Bangladesh is hoping to become the world's youngest computer expert after becoming obsessed with his mother's PC at the age of two.

Wasik Farhan-Roopkotha, who turned six in January, is hoping his skills will be recognised by Microsoft and Guinness World Records.

As a toddler, Wasik started to show an aptitude for computers and before long he had mastered several popular video games, including Modern Warfare and Metal Gear Solid.

He began typing in Microsoft Word as a three year-old and knew how to programme and download game emulators at the age of four.

His mother Cynthia Farhan-Risha said: "I knew he was very different since his birth. I couldn't believe my eyes when he began computing when he was just seven months old.

"Wasik started to play and master many complicated games and started installing them just after he turned two and also started typing in MS Word from around the same time."

By the time he was of school age, Wasik was not integrating at his local primary and so his parents decided it was best for him to be taught at home.

According to his mum, Wasik's English is still fairly limited. But he did have a few words to say in Bengali.

"I really enjoy playing on the computer and learning new skills," he told the BBC.

"My ambition is to be a computer expert and to work for a big computer firm in the future."

Wasik Farhan Roopkotha - who comes across as a very quiet young boy - has now been working with computers for more than four years, but he still enjoys mixing with other children of his age, playing football and listening to music.
