Vrindavan, 2017.08.21 (VT): Mathura’s “Memory Girl” Prerna Sharma has broken her second world record this week.
The nineteen-year-old earned her first entry in the Guinness Book of World Records this January, after memorizing 500 random numbers with a timing of 8 minutes and 33 seconds, beating a previous record set by Lance Shrehart of the USA. Sharma was able to repeat the 500 numbers in order and backwards as well.
This time, Sharma’s challenge was to observe fifty random objects – such as chocolate, a bell, a sieve, etc. – on a table and memorize their placement. Afterwards, the table was cleared, and Sharma was required to place them back on the table in order.
In 14 minutes and 39 seconds, Sharma placed all 50 objects perfectly, beating the previous record of 42 objects set by Arpan Sharma of Nepal.
