A nine-year-old pupil from SJK (T) Taman Melawati in Kuala Lumpur has placed in the Kids World Records (KWR) for naming 213 different types of aircraft in six minutes.

Sarvysswharrann Yogeswaran from Wangsa Maju achieved the impressive feat in the boys aged seven to nine-years-old category of the Canada-based KWR, which highlights talented children aged four to 16.

According to The Star, Sarvysswharrann completed the task virtually back in March, and received his certificate and medal for the Most Aircraft Recited, on Aug 19.

He reportedly named 213 different types of aircraft which include commercial flights, helicopters and fighter jets.

"I am thrilled to connect these record-breaking activities with aviation and my dream is to be a pilot. I love to watch talent show programmes like Little Big Shots, Guiness World Records and Malaysia Book of Records on YouTube.

"Their stunning activities have inspired me to work on my personal record too," Sarvysswharrann told the portal in an e-mail interview.

Not surprisingly, the boy's keen interest that things that fly stems from his father - 47-year-old aircraft engineer Yogeswaran Tamil Selvam.

He recalled being exposed to aircraft-related activities, including watching movies and viewing images and collecting aircraft models since he was very young.

"Before the pandemic, I'd follow my father on flight simulator tests. In addition, I love Mathematics, Science and Astronomy, which help me connect with aircraft-related activities."

As to how he prepared for his record feat, Sarvysswharrann said he did not memorize the names of the 213 aircrafts. Instead, the names of the aircrafts, which he had seen many times in books and on the internet, stuck in his mind and he merely recited them to secure the win, he noted.

The aspiring pilot's parents coached him in getting the pronunciation right during the recital.

Apart that aviation, Sarvysswharrann is also a skilled chess player; having represented the country at the Virtual Asian School Chess Championship 2021, reported The Star.

Bravo Sarvysswharrann! So young, yet so talented! Here's wishing you all the very best in achieving more in the future!
