A little over four years of age but with an auto dictionary of 540 models of cars from across the world, A Sai Kaushik appears to be more than just a child prodigy.

Included in the Limca Book of Records for 2004, Kaushik's flair for cars and his remarkable memory helps him clearly differentiate between various car models of similar design besides being able to identify a fast-moving or even a stamp-sized picture of a car.

Having begun at the tender age of one-and-a-half years, today, as soon as he comes across a new car, Kaushik gets the details and memorises them.

Invited as a guest at this year's Auto Expo, Kaushik has been featured in the Limca Book of Records for his remarkable memory about automobiles and his parents have applied to the Guinness Book of World Records for a similar mention.

Besides, he has been felicitated by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and is a recipient of Junior Excellence Award as well as Ugadi Puruskaram 2003 Memory Power Superkid at the Samaikya Bharatha Gaurava Satkara 2003 by the Madras Telugu Academy.

A diehard fan of Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, Kaushik devours auto magazines and his favourite car model is Toyota Rav.
