The World Health Organisation's Report that Indians are Number one in Memory inspired him and he took it upon him to spread this awareness and train people all over the country. He has invented a special Memory Technique, “3 – Dimensional Memory System” by which he had trained more than 2 Lakh children and adults in 35 countries across the world. He says, Man is composed of 4 levels carnal, mental, intellectual and spiritual. To acquire physical perfection one has to keep good health. To acquire intellectual powers, one needs to improve mental powers. To get mental powers one should have good memory power. To be precise, if one applies mind through faculty of memory, mind assumes the dimensions of intellect. Once intellect comes into play over the awareness of higher things of life, spirit rouses itself and pervades into mysteries of the world. So, mental health is as important as the Physical Health. Exercising Brain muscles by learning Memory Techniques and participating in a National Championship of such a great magnitude would help develop a dynamic and vibrant India. It is to the credit of Squadron Leader Jayasimha that the National Memory Council has been established in the country and the First National Memory Championship was conducted on 11, Oct 2009 in Hyderabad.
- First Indian National Memory Championship was conducted on 11 Oct 2009 at Hi-Tech City Hyderabad where 1500 competitors participated.
Memory bears a huge significance in our day-to-day life. Yet the need and significance of learning memory is not as recognized as it should be. Human ignorance and technological advancements contributed a lot to this phenomenon. However, it is beneficial to understand that the very process of learning is exclusively and directly dependent on experiences and how they are recorded in our memory system. It is therefore an imperative for us to study, understand and develop our mind.
This sport encourages the participation from wider network of social communities, especially the future generation-building educational institutions. The participants will be able to understand the various ways in which memory can be tested. This gives them an exposure to understand the functioning of their memory and can help lay a foundation to growth in that dimension.
