Rutvik Shinde dreams of becoming a gymnast someday. When he was just five years old, his mother Savita found him trying to do a headstand. Though it was just for five minutes, Rutvik was making cautious moves, balancing his weight carefully and standing on his hands. “That day, I realised my son had amazing balancing skills. And, I would go the extra mile to foster his dreams,” she says. In the coming days, online video tutorials become Rutvik’s favourite pastime, and in no time, he learned to do a headstand to perfection!
“From this exercise, we learned that Rutvik had a strong visual memory, and he could learn better by watching online videos. He would keenly observe a move in a tutorial video and strategically adapt it in minutes,” says his mother. Rutvik’s penchant for visual learning is what prompted the Shindes to introduce their son to Disney. BYJU’S Early Learn App.

“Rutvik loves to study from Disney. BYJU’S Early Learn. Colourful characters, reading exercises, rich storytelling, and fun activities catch his attention and encourage him to study on his own,” Savita says, relieved that their son is in safe hands when it comes to his studies.
We asked Rutvik what he loves the most in Disney. BYJU’S Early Learn App, “English! I already know all the different types of nouns,” he says with bated breath. “And, I beat my brother in ‘matching the letters’ and ‘word puzzles’ activities.”

Rutvik’s passion for learning through stories introduced him to the world of comics and illustrated stories. He loves reading Hansel and Gretel and stories from the Panchatantra, among others. The Shindes found this to be a great way to keep their son engaged.
“Our days are filled with surprises from Rutvik. Sometimes, it is gymnastics, and other times, it is his stories. It is a gratifying experience to see your child grow, learn, and adapt to the world around them,” the Shindes sign off.
Team BYJU’S wishes Rutvik the best for his many learning adventures!
Books are Tanaya Goswami’s first love and cheesecakes come a close second. Talking about movies, music, calligraphy, politics, and Elon Musk will get you listed under the friends’ section of her diary. Ever since moving on from her job as an English lecturer, she spends her time at BYJU’S crafting stories filled with emotion and sprinkled with sarcasm. Outside of work, she’s either learning something new (French, most recently!) or is curled up with a book and a cup of coffee. She firmly believes that discovering what you don’t know is the key to knowledge and is constantly working towards improving herself.

My mentor Raksha Chettri has been my pillar of strength from day one. It is her constant guidance and encouraging words that have helped me become a lifelong learner. A big thanks to her and BYJU'S - The Learning App.
BYJU'S app has helped me understand Maths and Science in a fun way. Now, I study from the app, understand concepts, and then go through my textbooks.
BYJU'S is the bridge that connects my imagination to my reality. The engaging study videos with real-life examples help me understand concepts not only from an exam point of view but as a lesson for life.
