Siddhant Gumber, a 12-year-old Indian origin has broken the world record for identifying 39 aeroplane tails in a minute. With this, the youngster has entered the Guinness World Records.
The Abu Dhabi-based school boy’s remarkable knowledge does not end there..
Hailing from Haryana, the 12-year-old had also featured in ‘India Book’ and became the youngest Indian to identify top 100 buildings across the world with their respective heights and locations.
Siddhant was also recognised for his unique stint by the ‘India Book of World Records’.
Talking about his incredible talent, Siddhant said: “I have been a Lego buff since I was a toddler, and my father and I spent a lot of time creating a variety of models, rockets, aeroplanes, buildings and vehicles. I was able to recognise a lot of the aeroplanes tails, and mother helped me compile them in PowerPoint slides so I could identify them.”
Overwhelmed by her son’s achievement, Siddhant’s mother Monisha said: “He has an exceptional picture memory and usually never forgets an image once he has seen it. He does have a variety of interests and likes to know about things in detail, just like aeroplanes.”
She also added that Siddhant took just about 1.5 seconds per airline tail. Siddhant always had a keen interest in signs, symbols and logos, his mother added.
