Nagpur: Vaishnavi Pote, a student of Bhavan’s, Civil Lines, entered the India Book of Records with her stunning feat of memorizing skills. Vaishnavi set a national record in the word memorizing category at an event organized by India Book of Records and Innovations Communication Techniques (ICT) Media Pvt Ltd. According to the results declared by IBR, Pote answered 304 out of 314 questions.
“The feat is one of the best moments of my life and I had worked very hard for it. I studied for almost three hours every day for last six months. I had lost hope during the game as well. I feel proud and the happiness on my parent’s face is my real achievement,” Vaishnavi said with a broad smile and added that she would now prepare for Asia Book of Records in the same category.
Pote memorized 100 random words in 10 minutes. She then recited the words and the numbers assigned to each word in an ascending order. She also recited the words in descending and random order. The latter task was the toughest because even the members from the audience tested her skills. They asked her random words and she had to tell the number assigned to it and vice versa.
India Book of Records adjudicator Manoj Tatwadi said that the record was attempted for the first time in the word memorizing category and the competition tested the memory power of participant. All the guidelines laid down by the International Protocol of Records (IPR) were followed. Pote is now the National Champion.
