Why Memory as a Sport?
For ages, India has been laying so much emphasis on Physical sport and so much hype is created on winning a single medal in Olympics. But, Mental Sports has totally taken a back seat.
Our ability to remember is getting eroded day by day. Most of the students are not aware of scientific methods of memorisation. Besides, the corporate institutions with their grinding system of memory, running behind ranks/ grades/ marks is adding lot of stress to students. Be it a student or a professional or any adult, memory is at the heart of everything we do – academics, examinations, communication, creativity, and thinking – indeed it is the root of our existence. Hence, there is a need to train and practice memory as a sport, as a hobby so that we remain active throughout our life.
Squadron Leader Jayasimha, Memory Maestro had been conducting Memory enhancement workshops in India and abroad for the last few years. Though these memory techniques are proven and scientific, but most of the students are not practicing them after the workshop for deriving the full benefit in their academics. Having been part of the Toastmasters Club which fine tunes public speaking at regular intervals, Squadron Leader Jayasimha felt that to have the same impact, all the Memory athletes and those who are interested in the field of Memory discipline should constantly practice these memory techniques. Hence, he had taken up this initiative of starting the First Memory Club in India. This is to prove that more than a God’s gift, Memory is a skill which can be mastered by all through proper training &consistent practice. These Memory clubs will re-define the way students learn and memorise their text books. This will help them to use both sides of the brain and will make citizens more innovative, creative and excel in their academics, examinations, professions in fact, in any of their chosen field.
