Youngest Record Holders In India

A record holder is one of a kind. They excel in things others don’t particularly excel in and age is indeed just a number.

These record holders question you as adults. Tiny in size but great in ability. There is no explanation to their achievements so do not rack your brain trying to figure out how they do what they do, they just do it and do it better than anyone in the country.
