Four-year-old Mayukh Prakhya, of NSW's Mid North Coast, under his grandfather's guidance, has successfully memorised 560 digits of the value of pi.
Mayukh's proud parents, Phani and Navya Prakhya, are in the process of submitting an application to an international pi competition which ranks competitors on the number of digits they can recite and the time it takes them to do so.
As part of the competition's application, it's required to recite the numbers in front of an audience.
Mayukh recited 560 decimals of the value of pi in front of a Year 7 class at St Paul's College, Kempsey, this week in two minutes and two seconds.
"He's very young now, but when he's older he will realise how special this is," Mayukh's proud father Phani Prakhya said.
Mayukh has also been awarded Youngest Achiever in the International Wonder Book of Records for reciting the capitals of 192 countries in five minutes and 50 seconds.
"We're very proud of him and what he's been able to achieve."
Mayukh was taught to memorise and recite the digits by his grandfather, Dr Vvln Sarma, who holds the record in the Wonder Book of Records for reciting 500 digits of the value of pi in one minute and 30 seconds.
Dr Sarma said it took his grandson just eight months to memorise the numbers in order.
"I have been teaching him memorising techniques, he's done very well," he said.
The youngster, who turns five on Friday, doesn't realise how impressive it is to remember over 500 numbers in order.
"He's too young to understand the importance of it, but he enjoys memorising and learning new things," Phani said.
The application for the competition will now be submitted and Mayukh's family will wait to see if he is the youngest child to memorise over 500 digits and recite them in two minutes.
"There might be a new world record, he might be the youngest child to recite over 500 decimal places in the shortest amount of time," Phani said.
