Arham had entered the prestigious Guinness World Record as the World’s Youngest Computer Programmer after he cleared the Python programming language. Arham attributes his success to his father, Om Talsania. His dad is a software engineer. Revealing his son’s interest in coding, Om spoke about how Arham had an interest in coding from a very young age. He also added that he taught him the basics of programming as well.

Speaking to the press, Arham said, “My father taught me coding. I started using tablets when I was 2 years old. At the age of 3, I bought gadgets with iOS and Windows. Later, I got to know that my father was working on Python.”

Revealing his journey of getting the Guinness World Record certificate, the little man states that he had got the certificate from Python at the time he was making small games. The company later asked the six-year-old to send the proof of his work. Arham met the brand’s requirement and sent them his works.
