New York: A three-year-old Indian-American child can identify all 202 countries, some dependencies and territories on the world map in a jiffy, a media report said.
Vihaan Chamala, who is from New York, has impressed judges from Record Setter Organisation when he named all 196 countries, dependencies and territories within a time span of four minutes and 42 seconds, California-based India West reported.
The judges honoured the little toddler with a world record. It all began after a vacation to India when one evening his mother Jayasree Appannapally bought a world map to show Vihaan some major countries in the world.
She showed him eight major countries on the first day and was surprised to see that he remembered all eight countries the following day. Day by day, he grew curious about learning more countries.
With his ability to learn, retain and swiftly recall the information, he mastered the entire world map in approximately two months. Vihaan is the only child of Jayasree, a clinical physical therapist, and Dr Raghu Ram Chamala.
