They’re not lawyers, nor are they members of the judiciary. Neither do they feel they’re even close to be called legal experts. But what sets the brothers, Yash (22) and Nishkarsh (18) from Uzanbazar, Guwahati apart is that they’re students who’ve featured in the Limca Book of Records twice within a span of 5 years.
Four years ago, the duo hit headlines as they made a national record by memorizing the entire Constitution of India’s article head-notes. The rules dictated by Limca Book of Records were rigorous but clear – a word’s mistake and the brothers would be disqualified. On August 22, 2013, the duo brothers were put to test in front of a jury consisting of 15 members and they qualified with ease, finding their way into the Limca Book of Records, 2014. Followed by this, they were invited at the Governor’s House by the then Governor of Assam, Sri J B Patnaik. Words of appreciation also flew in from the Prime-Ministers’ office. Back then, both Yash and Nishkarsh, who were just 18 and 14 respectively, didn’t even profoundly realize that they’d be opting for law. They were school students who treated this achievement just like any other extra-curricular activity they were indulged at.
However, four years later today, it’s a completely different story.
They’ve set another national benchmark, only this time, it’s the Indian Evidence Act, 1872. With the same set of guidelines dictated by Limca Book of Records, on 21 July, 2017 in front of a jury of 15 members, the brothers passed their test sublimely. As a result, both Yash and Nishkarsh have bagged another place in this year’s Limca Book of Records (2018).
Not just this, but both brothers now have their sights set straight to enter the field of law. More so, after they were invited by the Hon’ble Chief Justice of the Gauhati High Court which they reminisce as one of their most memorable moments ever. While Yash, who is 22 now, is already half way past his integrated B. A. – LL. B. course, Nishkarsh, who is 18 is all set to appear for this CLAT. The brothers have started going in-depth with the specifics of law and only see this as a tiny part of a bigger process.
Although, they recall working immensely hard towards reaching these aforesaid two goals, but they only devoted a fraction of their daily time to this. Both Yash and Nishkarsh are immense lovers of music and have been playing their very own musical instruments, piano and guitar respectively for more than a decade. They’re piled up with tons of other hobbies which keeps them going for rest of the day. They’ve a lot to credit their father, who’s a practicing lawyer himself, and their mother, who’ve trained and nurtured them to enjoy a proper utilization of time.
