Entering the Guinness Book of World Records is a dream for many. And 13-year-old Nischal Narayanam has entered the Guinness records not once, but twice. The teen genius successfully completed his new feat at an event at Taj Krishna in the presence of some distinguished guests.
Nischal memorised 132 digits within a span of one minute and read it out in the same order without any error. With this feat, he entered the Guinness record for the second time. Chief Minister K Rosaiah acted as the witnessing judge to the whole programme and praised the talented child protagonist for the stunning accomplishment. Rosaiah who had in the past too attended Nischal’s programme, said, “I am very pleased to see such a feat and this boy is very gifted. I congratulate Nischal on behalf of the State and Central government for successfully passing this memory related test. We expect to see more such wonderful acts from him.”
Roshaiah felt that Nischal could be a inspiration to the future generation. The wonder child Nischal first stepped in to the Guinness hall of fame when he was 11. He memorised around 225 random objects within a minute and broke his mentor Squadron leader R Jayasimha’s previous record. Expressing happiness over his student breaking his record, Jayasimha shared, “I have been training Nischal from past two years and since four months we were working on this feat. Though he is gifted with natural abilities, it is his sheer determination and concentration that brought him to this stage.” Nischal has not only excelled in memory tests but also on the academic front. Nischal had become the youngest school
finalist at the age of 13 by passing IGCSE, AS and A levels of Cambridge University equivalent to 10th, 11th and 12th standards respectively in India, all in just one academic year 2008-2009. Nischal is also the youngest person to pass the common proficiency test of the chartered accountancy.
The guests who witnessed the event include Chief Election Officer I V Subba Rao, Additional DGP Law and Order A K Khan, P Ramakrishnam Raju, retired Judge of High Court and G Kishan Rao, Director, Chowmahalla Palace.
