A child prodigy beat his own teacher to set a new world record for memorizing the most number of random objects, thereby earning a place for himself in the Guinness Book of Records.
Nischal Narayanam, 11, is a Class 6 student at Gitanjali School. He won by memorizing 225 random objects, as well as the numbers assigned to them and beat Squadron Leader Jayasimha, who set the record last year by memorizing 200 objects. Nischal received a certificate from Guiness World Record Ltd. But how does he do it?
"One needs scientific methods and three qualities of concentration, seriousness and determination to achieve this feat," said Nischal, who solves mathematical problems with the help of the Universal Concept of Mental Arithmetic System, a method that works faster than a computer.
Wow! I find this truly amazing. Half the time, I can't remember where I put my house keys! lol
