**Bhubaneswar:** At an age when children learn to speak out words properly, this tiny little boy rattles the names of various models of car in a rhythmic manner in his playful lisping pronunciation leaving the audience spellbound.
Three-year-old Sai Anish Pattnaik of Sunabeda in Koraput district has the names of around 61 cars at the tip of his tongue. He can easily remember the car models and identify it within 100 seconds. Such astounding is his memory power that he has engraved his name in various national and international records.
This tiny tot has been awarded a place in Incredible Book of Records of Uttar Pradesh, Indian World Record Bureau of Jharkhand and World Records India of Gujarat.
The only son of engineer parents, Saroj and Swaroopa Pattnaik, Sai Anish studies in a playschool. Even the school has waived off his fees as a tribute to his rare mental prowess.
Sai Anish stunned everyone at a very young age when he identified almost all the cars on road and on YouTube.
“Sai was attracted to cars from a very tender age. His favourite toy always remained cars. He has an uncanny fascination for those four wheelers,” said his mother, Swaroopa.
“When I planned to buy my first car last Dussehra, I used to browse different models of cars on YouTube. Sai used to take great interest in the various models. Whenever we used to go to the market, he used to identify any four wheeler model from a distance, even in the pictures. This prompted me to make his video and post in the Facebook. People noticed and within a span of few months, he has been recognized all over for his mental ability,” informed Saroj, his father to OMMCOM NEWS.
A child prodigy, he is as normal as any other child, having all the child tantrums and a lively childhood. But his memory power has made him a face apart from the crowd.
Saroj Pattnaik has applied for the international Everest World Record of Nepal and is also contemplating of applying in the Guinness Book of World Records.
