NAMAKKAL : In what could be a rare thing, a three-year-old child recites religious scripture with ease, besides identifying the national flags of 220 countries.

Taking everyone by surprise, the child prodigy, Riya, identifies the national flags when the pictures were shown to her in a span of just two minutes and ten seconds.

Riya.jpgHer parents, Sivaraman and Dharani, claim the girl recites 72 lines from ‘Vinayagar Agaval’ and 92 lines from Sivapuranam, which makes part of the popular Tamil devotional writing Thiruvasagam. “I used to read Thiruvasagam during the days of pregnancy so that the baby could grasp even at the developing stage. When she was one year old, we noticed her carefully listening to rendition of devotional songs and scripture at the temple where we used to go. Later, she gradually began to recite them,” Dharani said.

Riya’s parents had devoted a lot of time in fine-tuning her innate talents as they gave her right brain training to improve memory power.

Sivaraman said,  “We gave her right brain training. It improved her memory power”.  He added that his family is looking for steps to get Riya’s wonders registered in the world record books.
