HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - Geography is a tough subject for many children in America, not for a 3-year-old Hebron, Ky. boy.

Ritvik Indupuri knows all of the countries of the world by their flags, and can locate most of them on a map. His parents have used flash cards to teach him more than 110 countries and over 190 flags.

Ritvik loves model cars, too. He can tell you the make of each car in his collection, identifying them like he does the flags.

"The teachers at his school, they say that he has like a photographic memory," said Chandrasekhar Indupuri, Ritvik's father.

Chandrasekhar and his wife, Lalitha, didn't think their son was so different until their friends said something. They just know their son loves learning and school.

"He loves it, he loves all his teachers and friends," said Lalitha. "If I didn't send him for one day, he'd ask me, 'Send me to the school.'"
