“How to Double Your Memory,” the muchawaited seminar on the mysteries of the mind and memory organised by India Book of Records in association with ‘The New Indian Express’ was conducted at Fine Arts Hall here on Sunday. The seminar, led by Biswaroop Roy Chowdhary, who has two Guinness World Records, was held in five sessions.
The seminar was attended by school students, students preparing for various competitive exams like IIT-JEE, Medical Entrance, CAT, SAT, GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS and civil services as well as by other professionals. Choudhary said that the seminar was organised in the background of the workshop on memory, mind and body that will be organised on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Kochi.
“We are conducting this workshop to inculcate the tremendous potential of the human mind and body among students and professionals. There is something terribly wrong with our educational system. Students are not able to enjoy the schooling process. More disturbingly, the emotional and physical health of students are drastically decreasing.
Before some years, lifestyle diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity were basically the diseases of aged population. But now young students are suffering with all types of lifestyle diseases,” he said. “The health sector is making huge profit by exploiting this situation.
My contention is that by training mind and body, people can largely keep away from medicine. Proper training of mind can also enhance memory capacity. Our workshop will be extremely helpful for students,” he said. The workshop is organised at YMCA International House, Ernakulam.
“The first day of the workshop is titled as ‘mnemonic pen day,’ second day as animation and audio visual day, third as advance mnemonic day and fourth day as mind-body fitness day. “On the mind-body fitness day, topics like mind-body medicine link, intelligent food theory, body-mind-soul connections, body secret defence system, positive behaviour changes, strong immunity and healthy food choice will be discussed,” Chowdhury said.
