Noted personality developer Squadron Leader Jayasimha has achieved the distinction of becoming the first and the only Indian to have his name entered in the Guinness Book of World Records eight times.
He broke his own earlier record of four entries, by performing four record-breaking feats on a single day on March 8, a press release said on Wednesday.
He arranged a deck of shuffled playing cards in the order ‘A to K' of Hearts, Spades, Diamonds and Clubs in a record time of 25.97 seconds at an event on March 8. In doing so, he broke the earlier record of Zdenek Bradac of Czech Republic, the note said.
On the same day, Mr. Jayasimha looked at a number sequence of 264 numbers for exactly one minute and recalled all the numbers in the same order, breaking the earlier record of 216 numbers by Dominic Brian Hindarto of Indonesia.
Among other feats of the day were also the most mental arithmetic calculations done in a minute, and the longest colour sequence remembered in shortest while.
Mr. Jayasimha performed 12 arithmetic calculations involving 120 numbers in a minute, and broke an earlier record of eight calculations by Chen Ranran of China.
He also memorised the sequence of four colours displayed 152 times in random order, just by looking at them for 5.04 seconds, the note claimed. He broke an earlier record of 40 colours in 2 minutes and 30 seconds by Florian Dollner of Germany, it said.
Mr. Jayasimha, who chose to take up personality development and memory training after 21 years of service in Indian Air Force, already held four earlier records, respectively for memorising random objects, non-stop lecture marathon, memorising names and dates of birth in shortest time, and the fastest typing of the English alphabet.
