JAMMU, May 22: Jammu girl Anvika Mahajan is a child prodigy par excellence. She has brought laurels to the city by entering into India Book of Records in three different categories just at the age of three years and 11 months.
Anvika, daughter of Dr Sukriti and Ankit Gupta, a LKG class student of Jodhamal Public School has broken two old records and created a new one within a short period of one week. These records were under the age category of 3 to 7 years.
The first record is titled as “Medicines for maximum symptoms recalled by a kid”. She was able to memorize and recall chemical names of generic drugs for 20 symptoms in just 52 seconds.
The second record is titled as “The record for answering the maximum number of General Knowledge (GK) questions in one minute”. She rapidly answered 56 GKs questions based on various topics in one minute. The record under this category was earlier set by Prathish Rajesh of Dindigul, Tamil Nadu who had answered 55 General Knowledge questions in one minute at the age of 6 years, 4 months and 5 days. However, recently, she has already bettered her own record by answering 67 GKs questions in 1 minute.
The latest record is titled as “The record for answering the maximum number of GK questions in 30 seconds.” Anvika correctly answered 44 questions including national symbols and world capitals in 30 seconds. The record under this category was earlier set by Mohammed Rayan K.P (born on June 1, 2017) of Malappuram, Kerala who answered 41 GK questions including national symbols, fruits and months in 30 seconds at the age of 4 years, 7 months and 7 days.
Anvika is now aiming to break her own record by recalling names of at least 40 drugs in one minute along with a few other existing records.
