A 11-year-old student of a school in Hyderabad, Nischal Narayan, has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for his ability to memorise and recall the names of objects at random.
The Guinness certificate has been awarded to Nischal for performing the feat of memorising and recalling the names of 225 objects at random. His parents Nagesawara Rao and N Padmavathy, while expressing happiness over the boy's achievement, said that at the age of nine, he took a fascination for numbers and would try out simple ways to find logical solutions to intricate arithmetic problems.
This helped him to become focussed and determined. They said at the age of nine, Nischalm had performed Ganitavadhanam.
He also showed his expertise in playing blindfold chess and created a primary Math Lab called 'Nischal Math Lab', as a tool to tackle numbers.
The boy also achieved the rare distinction of being the youngest author of six volumes of books in primary maths.
