Meet Kunwarpratap Singh, a three-and-a-half-year-old kid from Sacred Heart Convent School, Sarabha Nagar, who has left everyone amazed with his superb IQ and photographic memory.

The “little Einstein” knows much more than a 10-year-old student. Kunwarpratap has surpassed the intellect of an average Class V student and knows tables of 1 to 40, capitals of all countries of the world, multiples of every number, prime numbers etc. This extraordinary child has got his name entered into the Asian Book of Records, India Book of Records and International Book of Records.

As per his teachers, his passion for books is reflected in the fluency in his reading and speaking. He can comfortably pronounce long words and has a good reading speed. His ability to solve multiplication, subtraction and division sums orally leaves everyone stunned.

Kunwarpratap’s parents said he is adored by all in his residential colony as he remembers names of all residents, their house numbers and other details. “Incredibly all his talks, though innocent, are thought provoking. He mildly checks anyone who states something incorrect and spontaneously gives the correct answer. He attempts Olympiads easily and has many world records to his credit.

He won the Grandmaster title, awarded for recalling 27 monuments and 14 multiplication tables in one minute. Besides, he was the youngest to recite tables from 1 to 30, fastest to name capitals of all Indian states (in 48 seconds) and youngest to read maximum books (27 books in 23 minutes 48 seconds). He got selected amongst the top 100 from across India in Child Prodigy magazine,” his parents said.
