5 Extreme Overachievers

Some people get rich, others set world records, but a few get started on something and just can't stop. Read about the man who wrote 200,000 books, the scientist with 3,200 patents, and Dr. Shrikant Jichkar, who holds 20 postgraduate degrees.
Jichkar, a politician in his native India, went to school and did pretty well, becoming an M.D. Then he became a lawyer. Then he did business administration and journalism. He got master's degrees in sociology, history, psychology, philosophy, English literature and others. At one point he even joined the police force, apparently just for kicks, as he resigned sometime later. Because that was just his professional life, he was also a photographer, painter and actor, but, again, just for kicks.

How on earth could you possibly write 200.000 books? Even if you wrote 5 a day it would still take you >100 years! And that's from the day you where born!

I have been sequentially spelling the Alphabet since I could read... When I write, I omit the letters to do so. It is very taxing and wonder if doing so makes me bump into the night...

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXZY... I had to omit all my letters to do that!!!
