On October 13, while sitting at her home, Ishani spoke for about ten minutes, which had 1,560 decimal points. All marks are verified by Singapore Book of Records officials.

Ishani's mother Vanilla Munuswamy, 36, told the Straits Times on Saturday: "We were panicking but she was calm. When the officers asked her if she was nervous, she said that I am very excited. Till September last year, Ishani could remember 409 digits of pi. But she told her parents that she wanted to remember more marks. 

Her father Shanmugan VS told that after this they started teaching Ishani new numbers every day from April. He said, “We are proud of Ishani. We didn't expect her to remember every single digit the first time around. But he broke the record. Vanilla said, 'She wants to remember more digits of the pie.'

Earlier, memory coach Sansi Sooraj had set a record of memorizing 1,505 digits of pi in 2018 which was broken by Ishani. The Guinness World Record is in the name of Rajveer Meena who scored 70,000 speaking scores at VIT University in India in 2015.
