Adirai a five-year-old girl may only now be learning how to write a whole sentence. But she can faultlessly narrate the entire Kamba Ramayanam, the Tamil version of the Indian epic. She can interpret several verses in an erudite manner and can draw real-life parallels from them. The National Association for Gifted Children defines “Gifted individuals are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in one or more domains. Adirai is classified as a gifted child as she is endowed with a high degree of mental ability. India has 11.2 million gifted children. Analyzing India’s National Education Policy 2020 (NEP, 2020) through the prism of gifted education, this study highlights key policy initiatives for gifted education. Early identification of gifted and talented children without any ambiguity is key to building knowledge capital. National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore, has formulated a set of protocols for early identification of the gifted. Study further explores possible state level supplementary policies covering advocacy and enrichment programmes for gifted children and implementation strategies. Gifted learners are a reality in India and inclusion of this divergent population in NEP (2020) is bound to transform the Indian Educational System by 2040, as envisioned.

Keywords: National Education Policy 2020 (NEP, 2020), Gifted Education, Early Identification of Gifted Children, Teacher Resources.
