Child prodigy Sara Chhipa successfully memorized all the 195 “Countries – Capitals & Currencies” across the world.
Eleven-year-old Sara Chhipa, Indian school girl was recognized by His Excellency, Dr. Aman Puri Consul General of India and Dr Jitendra Matlani, Vice President, World Book of Records at the CGI office in Dubai. A Dubai resident for the past nine years, she created a World Record on 2nd May, 2021 by memorizing all the 195 “Countries – Capitals & Currencies” across the world. The previous record was for countries and capitals and Sara has added the dimension of currencies to her recent record. Sara became the first in the world to create & hold the “world record” in the newly achieved category.
A sixth-grade student at the Gems Modern Academy, Sara put in more than fifty hours of laborious work to memorize the daunting list of the names. Her world record journey began around three months back under the mentorship of Sushant Mysorkar, founder of Brain Rhyme Cognitive Solutions in Mumbai. Since then, Chhipa has been training in memorizing the names through a combination of cognitive mindset, association systems and several creative learning, memory tools and techniques.
Sara, who aspires to be a cricketer when she grows up, loves traveling and that was what sparked her interest to know more about countries and hence began her journey of memorizing the capitals and currencies. Gradually, she got into memorizing currencies and capitals of all the 195 countries and ended up creating three international records.
