    London: A 16-year-old Indian origin schoolboy in Germany has managed to crack puzzles that baffled the world of maths for more than 350 years, it was reported in London Saturday.

    Shouryya Ray, from Dresden, has been hailed a genius after working out the problems set by Sir Isaac Newton.

    Ray solved two fundamental particle dynamics theories which physicists have previously been able to calculate only by using powerful computers, Daily Mail reported.

    His solutions mean that scientists can now calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and then predict how it will hit and bounce off a wall.

    Ray only came across the problems during a school trip to Dresden University where professors claimed they were uncrackable, the newspaper said.

    "I just asked myself, 'Why not?'," explained Ray.

    "I didn't believe there couldn't be a solution," he added.

    Ray began solving complicated equations as a six-year-old but says he's no genius.

    After arriving from Kolkata four years ago without any knowledge of the German language, Shouryya is now fluent in the language.

    His intelligence was quickly noted in class and he was pushed up two years in school- he is currently sitting his exams early, the Mail said.

    Holy Hell. You can actually find this of use in military applications if you can predict that far.

    He turned his back to our country, pays taxes to another country and has another citizenship. Everthing he does benefits his new country but not India. So no fukcing reason to be proud.

    He is just 16yrs old.

    You don't need to decode his nationality to appreciate his talent.

    I don't understand why posters are crying about his identity. Whatever he is, Indian or German, sure deserves praise and accolades.
