Jayasimha, a former squadron leader in the Indian Air Force and now the president of World Memory Sports Council for India and Founder of Jayasimha Mind Education (JME), which is the only memory enhancement institute in India, says, "For anybody memory is very essential, over the years students have only been taught methods on how to byheart answers they don't have any idea of how the brain remembers, the concept of schooling and force memorizing should be stopped it puts the student into a lot of stress."
Established in 2008, Jayasimha is teaching students / adults across India memory enhancement over the last 10 years. However, he says in the last few years, the demand for memory enhancement in students has increased, as many parents have now understood the concept of smart learning. "For a student memorising an answer should be fun instead of being stressful and parents are now understanding the true way of learning. I have been constantly trying to submit several representations to the government to make memory enhancement a curriculum and to conduct competitions in every school across the country so that students can enhance and compete their skills," he adds further.
So far around 20 schools all over India and four schools in Hyderabad have enrolled for memory enhancement as a curriculum and around 800 students are being trained from Hyderabad. Jayasimha has trained around 10,000 students/adults over the last ten years in Hyderabad he also holds 14 Guinness World Records in his name in this field. During lockdown Jayasimha also conducts online workshops and classes on Skype.
How are students trained?
Students are taught about various memorizing techniques the most famous and easy amidst all of them is visualization technique. "Just the way a computer stores his data in binary form our brain also stores the data in form of pictures. For eg, if we say the word apple then you get an image of apple in your mind instead of its spelling. Similarly, students have been taught to visualise words, long answers in order to memorize them more efficiently." said Jayasimha. From students attending school exams to competitive exams come to learn memory enhancement and it varies from student to student on how much time it will take them to learn. On an average if a student practices regularly in 15 days he/she will be able to memorize things in a much better way than earlier.
Students and adults are helped to memorise a list of words, scientific terminology, memorise long answer questions, speeches, names and faces,numerical data, definitions and equations, memorise playing cards, binary numbers, abstract images.
