Coimbatore, Apr 3: A city-based foreign languages teacher is making an effort to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by memorising the longest number sequence (binary) and recalling the same.
P Aravind (36) who teaches French, Italian and Spanish to students in his 'Medusa Academy of Foreign Languages' recalled 270 digits in 12 minute 24.47 seconds at a programme here today.
One Jayasimha Ravirala of Hyderabad had created a record memorising 264 digits in just one minute and recalling it in 10 minutes. "My aim is to break that record by memorising and recalling 270 digits in the same time frame of one minute. My attempt has been video recorded and will be sent to the Guinness Book," he said.
Quoting the rules for the record, he told PTI that the sequence of whole numbers had to be memorised randomly generated by a computer. Only one attempt has to be made to recall each digit and they must be recalled in the correct order. Any error nullifies the attempt.
Dr N Srinivasan, Psychologist, Kovai Medical Centre and Hospital and Dr Prakasam, Principal, PPG Institute of Technology here were the judges at the programme. The recorded version will be sent to the Guinness authorities and results would be known in another 10 days, since his application had already been accepted, Aravind said.
