The little girl is growing up! You go, girl!
Bhubaneswar: At the end of 10th round of 4th Mayor’s Cup International Chess Tournament organised by Venus Chess Academy at Goregaon Sports Club in Mumbai, Aleksandrov Aleksej (ELO 2618) of Belarus is leading with nine points followed by Ukrainian GM Kravtsiv Martyn with eight points and third place shared by eight players with 7.5 points.

Odisha’s WGM Padmini Rout beat Kulkarni Rakesh and scored seven points by the end of tenth round.

Earlier, in the seventh and eighth round Rout defeated Indian GM Laxman RR and shared points with Bangladesh GM Murshed Niaz and bagged her first IM norms.

From 12th Women's World Chess Champion GM Alexandra Kosteniuk's blog, I found this great article on a simul held by eleven-year old WFM Danitza F. Vázquez of Puerto Rico!  It's a wonderful story and there are lots of photographs, please check it out!

Report at Chessdom.  We know (from article above) that Padmini Rout scored an important IM norm.  In addition, WIM Bhagyashri Thipsay made her maiden WGM norm!  Yippee!  I believe this was an 11-round tournament.
I've tried to pick out the chess femmes (but I'm not too good with Indian names, and I apologize in advance for any omitted players or any males that I may have added to the list by mistake -- I just do not have the time to check each individual's name on the FIDE list) from the final standings:
