Grand Master Rishiv Tanguturi  a blessing in disguise

Born on January 12, 2018, three-year-old Rishiv Tanguturi from Bengaluru, Karnataka presently residing in Sydney (Australia) can identify 56 cartoon characters, 53 airline logos, 55 company logos, 23 musical instruments, 64 car logos, 20 scientists, 50 billionaires with their sources of income, 27 Hindu gods and goddesses, 45 traffic signals, 24 sea animals, 55 flags, 36 tourist destinations of the world, all keyboard keys and Chess pieces.

He can also identify all the prime ministers of Australia and sort out Australian dollars.

Rishiv first got featured in the India Book of Records (2019) and is now in the Asia Book of Records (2020) for his exceptional memory.

His parents recognized the special ability in their son who was able to differentiate between different shades of the same colour– which was something rare at the tender age of 8 months and hence tried to capitalize on it by making him play with Country flags flashcards at the age of 9 months. As a result, he was able to identify around 50 country flags at the age of 10 months and point out the flag when they mentioned the name of a country. This made them realize that he is blessed with photogenic memory and hence introduced him to various other topics.

This way using play-based techniques for around 15 minutes a day they were able to teach him almost anything in a week’s time. 

Based on their own experience Rishiv’s parents recommend that all parents should spend a few minutes a day with their children. Given an opportunity and the right tools – according to them learning can seem like fun and any kid can achieve impossible levels.

Pratyush can also mention the names of weekdays, months of the year, national anthem and national song without fumbling even once. He can chant 36 rhymes in Odia, Hindi, Telugu, and English as well as hymns.

All this might sound too much for any other kid but not so for two-year-old Sai Pratyush son of K Sai Kishore and Deeptirekha Mohanty who had a good memory even as a toddler. This made his parents keep developing innovative ways to teach him new things.  Their effort paid off.
