Bhubaneswar, Jan 15:
Odisha’s child prodigy Meghali Malbika Swain has again etched her name on record books.
The 10-year-old has entered into India Book of Records for naming names of 1000 rivers of world in 9 minute, 1000 cities of world in 10 minute and 1000 physical bodies of earth in 12 minutes. She was asked to name these categories in less than 12 minutes each. Not surprisingly though, she attained it much ahead of the stipulated time.
The city-based girl can name the capital of countries, geographical locations and rivers in a jiffy.
She has attained a similar feat by entering the India Book of Records for naming 165 rivers in one minute.
The super talented girl is often called as Google girl or human search engine for having powerhouse of information at her fingertips.
“Meghali is an exceptionally talented girl. We don’t have such talent in our record holders’ list. This is organized for the first time,” said Biswadeep Roy, Adjudicator, India Book of Records.
Her parents are extremely joyous with her achievement.
“During a world cup football match, she showed interest to know more about the game. When I explained about it, she remembered it all. So, I encouraged her,” said Prafulla Swain, Meghali’s father.
She now eyes Limca Book of Records and Guinness Book of Records.
