Mangaluru, Nov 15: Panchami Maroor from Moodbidri received the 'National Child Award for Exceptional Achievement- 2015' from President Pranab Mukherjee in the presence of union women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi on Saturday, November 14.

Innovation, singing, acting, sports and a gamut of such talents in 30 children from across India got special recognition as President Pranab Mukherjee gave away the national child awards for exceptional achievement, 2015, in a ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The award winners are aged between nine and 16.

Parents of Panchami Parshwanath and Deepasree and her brother Pratham Maroor were also present during the occasion. The award is given by the central women and child development ministry. Panchami is a student of Jain high school in Moodbidri.

Panchami was also chosen for the state award given by state women and child development ministry. The award was given by Governor Vajubhai Vala on Saturday at Jawaharlal Bhavan at Cubbon Park in Bengaluru. Sudesh Jain Makkimane received the award on Panchami’s behalf. 

Achiever in five fields: Panchami, who studies in the eighth standard of Jain High School here, has excelled in Yakshagana, dance, music, sports and educational sectors. In these five fields, she has been incessantly registering one achievement after the other since the last eight years. She is immensely popular among the masses because of his prowess in different art forms, which she has proved with stage shows and television programmes. Already she has presented over 700 programmes including about a hundred shows of 'Yakshagana Nritya Vaibhava'.
Panchami has also come in for lavish praise by taking part in talent hunt programmes of the small screen. In Zee TV Kannada's 'Kuniyona Bara' programme, she won the 'best expression' award, while she annexed 'Muddina Putani' award by taking part in 'Putani Pantru' reality show of Suvarna TV. She also took part in 'Super Guru-Super Shishya' programme of Zee TV Kannada and reality show of Udaya TV.
In addition to cultural and sports activities, she has also been doing very well in education. In the seventh standard examination, she passed with 99 percent marks. She is a budding talent of Bharatnatyam and Yakshagana fields. Panchami also happens to be a sportsperson, and has shown her skills in hockey, football, volleyball and shot-put competitions. She is a cadet of NCC Army wing at Jain High School, and over 150 institutions and organizations in Karnataka have identified her talent and honoured her. 
Panchami, a talent hailing from purely rural place,  does not have any art-centric family background. Her father, Parshwanath, is a tempo driver, and mother, Deepashree, is a housewife. Both her parents have been wholeheartedly supporting the ambitions and interests of their daughter, and this has provided the impetus for Panchami to excel in every field. 
Sudhesh Jain Makkimane has been guiding her in taking part in reality shows and in presenting stage shows. Sudhesh was also instrumental in attending to modalities which enabled her to win state and national level awards.
