Please tell us about your hobbies

Aarish: I am a mathematics enthusiast. I love the subject and therefore, I like to solve mental ability sums and calculations. Apart from that, I love to play badminton.

How did your International Book of Records achievement come about?

Aarish: Since childhood, I have been very keen on mathematics. I used to practice and recite tables from 1 to 100. My parents helped me a lot with it.

Ms. Muskan Saini (Aarish’s mother): One day, while he was reciting multiplication tables, he asked if I could record and see in how much time he can finish the whole exercise. When I did that, it was 8 minutes and 52 seconds. Then he said that he could do better and practiced more. Eventually, we came to 8 minutes and 42 seconds which is a record.  

How much time has it taken for you to practice for the record?

Aarish: It is something I have been doing since I have been growing up. I may have started at grade 2 or 3. Even in my free time, I would keep reciting the tables because it has been fun.

You seem to have excellent retention power. How?

Aarish: I practice.

Ms. Muskan Saini: I have observed that he also has a good learning ability. I don’t have to do much with him as far as academics are concerned. He seems to be a natural at it. He also loves to watch a lot of fact-based videos and more often than not, he remembers the facts. My husband sits to do business-related calculations with him.

What is your career aspiration?

Aarish: I want to be an astronaut and explore different planets in outer Space.

How has been your experience with Apeejay School, Model Town?

Aarish: I love all my teachers, they explain difficult concepts in an easy manner and put in all their love in doing so.
