Nishant Kasibhatla:

Raise your hand if you think you have a fantastic memory. OK, I can see a couple of hands raising. So let me make it easy for you.

I am going to ask you an easy question: raise your hands if you think you have a bad memory. Oh, a lot more hands going up right now. And what about the rest of you who did not raise the hands? You forget to raise your hand?

Well, here’s the good news. It really doesn’t matter whether you think you have a good memory or not. Because it’s a fact that you can train your brain to remember better, to learn faster and to achieve mastery in anything you want in your life.

And I would like to show you something interesting here, which actually demonstrates to you what you can do if you train your brain.

Now I would request any five of you, any five people to volunteer to please come here and write something on the flip chart. Here we got two volunteers right from here. So 1,2,3. Thank you… 4. Thank you.

OK, I promise you, you don’t have to remember anything. So that’s a good thing. Yeah.

OK, so we got one more person, one more person. Come on. Just one more person. I want one more person to come up. Yes, sir, please come. OK. Anyone.

All right, so we got five, so big round of applause for all of them here. Thank you very much for volunteering.

This is what is going to happen. So I think you can start, you the nearest to the flip chart. So all you need to do is just open it for you.

So all you need to do is to write a six-digit number on this flip chart, write it a little bigger, so everyone in the audience can see so one line, a six-digit number. And after you’ve done this, please pass the marker to the next person you read the six digits, six digits, six digits. Sir is it OK if you stay back after you have written on your digits? Because I need a little bit more help from you. OK, good? OK, perfect.

So I’m going to go behind the flip chart. Because I’m not going to look at these numbers for the next few minutes.

All good so far.

OK, good. So, you also need to write a six-digit. Random number.

All right, so if everything went well, you should have a 30 digit number on the flip chart. Is that correct?

OK, big round of applause for everyone; thank you very much and please have a seat; except you. Can I know your name, please?

Angelo? So Angelo is here, a big round of applause for Angelo because you’re going to help a little with one more thing.

OK, now what’s going to happen is I’m going to stand behind the flip chart. Angelo, if you don’t mind, can you please call these numbers to me out loud to me one by one? Go ahead.

All right, so of course you’re expecting me to do something, which is true? So what’s going to happen is I’ll try to recall these numbers from my memory and just see how it goes.

The numbers are, 7717

Audience:  No

OK, I messed up. Let’s start again.

So it’s 7771204867320-307-73198225

Audience:  Stop

OK, wait, it’s 8, 2… After that should be it’s 95162534.

OK, so what’s the time right now? So what’s the time right now?

Audience:  8:45

Sometimes 8:45 is not the right time for me. I missed one or two digits.

All right, so what you’re seeing is a demonstration of what anyone can do. Now that’s just a thirty digit number. We’ll come back to that. Some of you are wondering, you know how I memorize these numbers, I’ll go back to explain to you how I did it.

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 also broke a Guinness record in memorizing the longest sequence of colours.

Now, it is true that I broke a Guinness record in memory. 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 years old, my mom asked me to buy something from the shop. I got onto my bicycle, went to the shop, parked to my bicycle, went into the shop, and as I was going into the shop, I totally forgot I went there on a bicycle.

I walked out of the shop and started walking back home. The most embarrassing thing was I realized I left my bicycle only the next day. For those of you wondering what happened to the bicycle, well, you guessed it, I lost it.

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.

So I want to show you some pictures on the screen as… and these are some famous people.
