Nishant Kasibhatla: All right, so what you’ve seen is a demonstration of what anyone can do. Now, that’s just a 30 digit number, we’ll come back on that. Some of you are wondering how I memorize these numbers, I’ll come back to you, I’ll explain to you how I did it.

Nishant Kasibhatla: Now, one of my records is I memorized a number consisting of 1944 digits. It looks something like that. I memorized a deck of playing cards in less than two minutes. I also memorized a deck of seven decks of playing cards in 60 minutes. So for those of you who are thinking of taking me to the casino, I’m available or you can talk about the negotiation later on. And also, I became a Grandmaster of Memory many years ago and I also broke a Guinness record in memorizing the longest sequence of colors.

Nishant Kasibhatla: Now, it is true that I broke a Guinness record in memory and it’s also true that, many years ago, I used to hold a world record in forgetting. It’s not official — if you ask my mom and dad, they’ll tell you I had a lousy memory. In fact, I still remember one of those days, when I was 15 or so, my mom asked me to buy something from the shop.

Nishant Kasibhatla: I got onto my bicycle, went to the shop, parked my bicycle, went into the shop, and as I was going into the shop, I totally forgot I went there on a bicycle. Walked out of the shop and started walking back home and the most embarrassing thing was I realized I left my bicycle only the next day. Now, for those of you wondering what happened to the bicycle, well, you guessed it, I lost it.

Nishant Kasibhatla: So I had a lousy memory. I went from a person with a lousy memory to breaking a Guinness record. And the good news is anyone can train their memory, anyone can become a fast learner because, today, I’m going to show you my formula of how you can learn anything and master anything in a fun, easy manner.
