Things kids do these days...

Who is this little girl, and what has she been upto that has brought her into the limelight?

Answer: She is 10 year old Aishwarya Parashar, who has been on an RTI filing spree, asking for historical proof behind Hockey being our national sport, Independence and Republic day being national holidays and Mahatma Gandhi being called the Father of the Nation.
The government is, expectedly, befuddled and has not been able to find anything of note.
