One-yr-old boy from Kollam enters India Book of Records for memory power
Kollam: Alankrith A. Mahendran, a one-year old boy in Kollam’s Chathannoor has secured a place in India Book of Records.
The little boy who is just learning to speak entered the India Book of Records for his ability to identify and spot pictures of things, objects and people. He could recognise around 177 pictures in different categories which include national leaders, food items and body parts.
Alankrith is the son of Reshma R Unnithan and Akhil Mahendran. He developed the ability to memorise and recognise from listening to things around him.
His mother used to tell stories and spot pictures to him. He also used to listen to teaching sessions of his cousin who is in first standard. The family members identified Alankrith's skill in easily recognising things and always motivated him. To develop his aptitude, his mother engaged him in question and answer sessions.
India Book of Records has confirmed Alankrith's entry to the record on June 4. The little prodigy has already received a certificate, badge, pen and ID card from India Book of Records.
At present, Alankrith is living with his father's parents in the house near Standard Junction in Chathannoor.
