to state all the U.S capitals - Shruthi Vairavan
sets world record
WA, USA -- 25 months old Shruthi Vairavan
(the daughter of Siva and Palani Vairavan) can name all the
United States capitals - setting the new world record for
to state all the U.S capitals.
Her mother, Mrs. Sivagami Arunachalam,
says: "she has other talents too. She can identify all
capital letters. She is the youngest as far as I have verified
to tell all the US state capitals as of now.
"There are other kids who have said
all the capitals but they are all above 27 months of age.
Shruthi is the first to say all the capitals at a very young
age of 25 months."
"Shruthi is a very smart and intelligent
girl. She loves to read books and paint on all surfaces that
she can get a hold on (including her baby brother's tummy).
"Shruthi can recognise all capital
letters and can count up to 30. Also Shruthi can identify
basic colors. Shruthi has an amazing memory power that motivated
us to teach her all state capitals. she is right now learning
about countries and their capitals.
"Shruthi loves to listen and watch
rhymes. She can sing more than 20 rhymes now. Shruthi is a
very active kid and likes to explore a lot. Shruthi spends
at least an hour with books in a day. We
either read to her or she flips the pages and identifies objects
or characters on the books. This has been a routine in the
family for more than a year now.
"We, Siva and Palani Vairavan are
both software engineers. We make sure we dedicate at least
an hour each with Shruthi per day. This has encouraged Shruthi's
reading habit as well as given her a quality play time.
We would encourage and help Shruthi
to attain what she aspires for. As far as stating the capitals,
it has all been her dad's effort and all the credit goes to
him. Palani has been her mentor on this."
