Aditi, a seventh-grader at Discovery Middle School, has received awards in all math competitions that she has entered since third grade, including several first-place honors.

This year, Aditi has won first place in tournaments at Cedar Ridge Middle School in Decatur and second place at Muscle Shoals. At Rocket City Junior Math Mania, Aditi ranked first among all seventh-graders individually, and her team of four also won first place.

Aditi participated in the National Assessment Test and ranked 21st in the nation.

Maanasi, a fourth-grader at Rainbow Elementary School, ranked first place in individual competition at Math Mania; Maanasi’s team of three also placed first. She placed third at Muscle Shoals, competing with older fifth-graders.

In all subjects, Aditi and Maanasi both are straight-A students, play piano, swim and enjoy reading. A chess enthusiast, Maanasi has placed in the top 10 in numerous tournaments and received the top student award in Johns Hopkins University’s talent search.

Aditi earned a perfect score on ACT’s Explorer with Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP). She ranked as Rainbow’s sixth-grade top academician.

Their parents are Dr. Ashutosh and Manisha Limaye. He is a scientist in NASA’s Earth Science Office. She works as a software engineer at Adtran. “Our love for math has always kept our kids interested,” Manisha said. The family was lived here since 1997.

“They have always been interested and passionate about math,” Manisha said. “Their success so far is only because of their hard work. We’re so proud of them because they realize that hard work is the only key to any success.”

As members of their schools’ math teams, Aditi and Maanasi practice regularly every week. “Since they love math, they enjoy working on a variety of math problems,” Manisha said.

“The Limayes are a truly spectacular family,” Discovery math coach Julie Goldston said.
