Dubai, UAE : Sara Chhipa, a 10 yrs young, proud native of Bhilwara, Rajasthan, India and a blessed resident of Discovery Garden in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for last 9 years has created a World Record on 2nd May, 2021 by memorizing all the 195 “Countries – Capitals & Currencies” across the world.
Previous world record was only on “Countries & Capitals” and Sara, has added one more dimension about their currencies. This record was administered through a virtual live event on 2nd May at 4:30 pm UAE time, 6 pm India time and was streamed on Facebook, YouTube & LinkedIn. With this record on 2nd May, Sara became the first in the world to create & hold the “world record” in this category.
Sara’s world record journey started around three months ago with the support of her mentor, Mr Sushsant Mysorekar, founder of Brain Rhyme Cognitive Solutions, Singapore. Mr. Sushant has been training Sara on memorizing these through various memory, creative skills & intelligence techniques. As per her father, Sara has started memory techniques classes during lockdown and world record attempt was not a pre-planned at all. After some sessions, her mentor identified the spark in Sara and shared the plan to her parents. As per Sara, it was not an easy journey, especially during initial days with the learning all the complex names along with pronunciation of those countries & capitals. Her mentor’s support was crucial as he has not only inspired Sara but also helped her through his various creative memory techniques. In beginning, it used to take around 1.5 hrs to practice all 585 records, which Sara reduced to around 15 mins with the regular practice. Sara gives her credit to parents who has encouraged & collaborated to define her schedule, ongoing schooling & supported in associated aspects of practice.
Sara came to Dubai along with her parents when she was only 1 year old. Sara had early schooling with Indian curriculum, Springdale’s School, Dubai and currently is a grade 6 student of Gems Modern Academy (Indian & IB curriculum school), Dubai. Sara’s father, Suniel Chhipa works with Etisalat Telecom and mother, Renu Chhipa works with Asteco Properties. She has one younger brother, Shourya who is a KG2 student at Springdale’s School, Dubai. It’s a proud moment for India & UAE and we are sure that, she would be an inspiration to all the children across the world.
Interestingly, Sara is also a buddying cricketer and fortunate to meet former captain of Indian Cricket Team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni & current captain of Indian women’s cricket team, Mithali Raj. She is also an avid dancer and performed various stage shows in Global Village, Dubai & shared stage with Bollywood celebrity, Karishma Kapoor at Bollywood Parks, Dubai. She is also exposed to the practices of yoga & breathing techniques through “Art of Living Foundation” and proudly continuing on daily basis.
