Little Siddhar Kanagarajah has done it again!
This time, the five-year-old from Kuala Lumpur has entered India's Lincoln Book of Records (LBR) for being the youngest child in the world to explain the most number of human body systems (anatomy an physiology).
"I am happy, excited and blessed to have gained entry into LBR. I am interested in memorising human anatomy because it is the best way for me to understand what is happening in my body," The Star quoted the smart child saying in an email interview.
For the record, the Chennai-based LBR is an organisation that identifies and promotes the talents of individuals.
It is worth noting that this is not little Siddhar's first record. Three months ago, he sealed a spot in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) for accurately identifying the most number of dinosaur species (80) in under a minute.
The report said that the Year One international school student achieved his latest feat virtually on June 19 - covering 17 topics, including 11 central human body system, five sensory organs, and the human cell structure, in under 25 minutes.
His mother Komathi Subermaniam, 33, told the portal that her son took only 10 days to memorise, practise and present the topics.
According to Komathi, who is a former physiotherapist, Siddhar started reading when he was just three, and had always been able to grasp things quickly. Noticing his intelligence and interest, she introduced him to medical terms.
Besides anatomy, the curious child has also been taught astronomy, mathematics, science, geography and general knowledge by his parents.
One advise Komathi has to fellow parents of young children is for them to spend more time with their young ones to ensure positive development.
"[Also] as parents, don't compare your children with others or force them to do things they dislike. Always find interesting ways to bring out the best in them," she said.
A sound advice indeed, and congratulations little kiddo for your impressive achievement!
Here's wishing all the best for Siddhar to break, or create more records in the future!
