Three-year-old Jeimithra Vasagam has earned a place in the Malaysia Book of Records after she identified 44 flags in just one minute and 195 flags in an astonishing 3 minutes and 5 seconds.
Her achievement also earned her recognition in the India Book of Records, Worldwide Book of Records, and Jackhi Book of Records.
According to her mother, Dr Mathi Vathani, 28, her daughter's journey to this remarkable achievement began at an incredibly early age.
"Before she was even one year old before she even started speaking, I showed her pictures of flags and asked her to identify them. This is how it all began," said the mother.
Dr Vathani said she used flashcards and other educational tools, with limited screen time, ensuring her children were not hooked on digital devices.
Having mastered flags, Jeimithra's next feat is learning the periodic table.
Jeimithra has also recently applied for the prestigious Guinness World Records and is currently awaiting her application review.
