Memorises 50 objects in a minutes, breaks previous record held by a Nepali girl

City prodigy Gauri Kodhe has created a new world record by memorising 50 objects in one minute. She achieved the feat at Sai Sabhagruha on Sunday.
By memorising 50 objects, Gauri broke the previous record held by a Nepali girl Arpan Sharma, who memorised 42 objects in one minute. The record is to be acknowledged by the Guinness Book of World Records. With this, she has become eligible for the record in “Longest sequence of objects memorised in one minute”.


Twelve-year-old Gauri had already proved her mettle, ability and capability by getting her name etched in the India Book of Records, World Record of India, Genius Award and Asia Book of Records by memorising complete Constitution of India.
As per the rule, Gauri had to memorise different objects kept on a table in one minute. Later, the judges shuffled the objects and asked her to arrange the objects as per earlier sequence. She was given 15 minutes to rearrange the objects on a sheet with numbers. She had to play by rule and had to memorise the position of an object and put it in place and then go for another object.


Daughter of Vaishali Kodhe, a memory technique trainer, and Manish Kodhe, an Engineer in electricity distribution company, Gauri can memorise things with the help of Inspire Memory Technique taught by her mother.  
Gauri thanked her mother for recognising and nurturing her talent at early stage. She also thanked Dr Anil Bajaj who guided her to create the world record.
Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Mayor Nanda Jichkar, MLA Krishna Khopde, Sonali Ghodmare and other dignitaries also were present. They congratulated Gauri for the achievement.
