New Delhi: Muhammad Faisal, an alumnus of Jamia Millia Islamia New Delhi, broke the 7th Guinness World Record for strongest memory at The Assam Valley School, Tezpur in Assam on 15th September, 2018.
Faisal who already holds four Guinness World Records for his strongest memory attempted 7th Guinness World Record under the category Most Golden Globes – ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ winners identified by year in one minute. The previous world record under this category was 20.
Dr. Vinita B Singh, Dr. Bhuban Chandra Barooah and Prof. Dr. Dhanapati Deka were the official witness of the record attempt while Mr. Pradeep Borthakur and Mr. Gopesh Das were the official time keepers.
According to Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), during the start of the attempt, Prof. Dr. Dhanapati Deka read out the rules of the record attempt. Then Muhammad Faisal recalled all the names of Most Golden Globes – ‘Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy’ winners from 1952 to 2017 in both forward and reverse order and amazed the audience for his extraordinary memory skills.
After that, all the three witnesses randomized the list using the online tool random.org which was recommended as per the guidelines of the Guinness World Records and print out taken and distributed among all the judges.
When the time keeper Pradip Borthakur gave the start command from 3 to 1, Dr. Vinita B Singh started asking questions to Faisal, while other two witnesses were verifying the answers given by him. All the questions comprised of year and name and Faisal answered all.
Faisal made 6 attempts for the same category. In the first attempt, he answered 25 questions in one minute, in the second attempt he answered 26 names in one minute, in the third attempt he answered 25 names in one minute, in the fourth attempt he answered 32 names in one minute and in the sixth attempt he answered 28 names correctly.
However, the 5th attempt went wrong as the questions asked by the witness Vineeta Singh was wrong. So, the final measurement was 32.
The whole process have been video recorded and will be sent to Guinness World Records for verification.
"If everything is all right then Faisal will receive the certificate after 3 months", the JMI said in a statement.
