Nischal Narayanam, a mathematics prodigy from the city, on Sunday memorised 132 numbers in a minute and claimed to have broken the world record set by Dominic .B of Indonesia in the category of ‘Most Numbers memorised in a Minute.’
Nischal, displayed his skills in front of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K. Rosaiah, Chief Election Officer I. V. Subba Rao, Additional DGP (Law & Order) A. K. Khan and retired AP High Court judge Justice P. Ramakrishnam Raju, who acted as judges.
The previous record was set up by Dominic .B of Indonesia who memorised 76 numbers, Nischal’s brother Nikhil told PTI here.
“We will send the video footage of Nischal’s performance along with the reports of all the judges to the Guinness World Records office in London for confirming his feat as the new world record,” Nikhil said.
After the performance, Nischal said, “I would like to dedicate this achievement to late Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy.”
The 13-year-old Nischal has several records to his credit in the area of mathematics and memory, including a Guinness record. He was one among the four selected by the National Geographic Channel for its ‘My Brilliant Brain’ series, which explored the different aspects of human brain and genius.
He earlier broke the world record in the category of ’most random objects memorised’ by remembering the names of 225 objects. Previous to him the record was held by Squadron Leader Jayasimha, a city-based mind power trainer, who was also the coach of Nischal, his brother added.
