“My dream is to go around the world several times,” Har Prakash told IANS, sitting in the conference room of the hotel Yak and Yeti when the cameras click furiously. “I want the children of these countries ask me, where is the flag of our country there and then, in the process, know their country and other countries.”

As he speaks, comes Carlos Peres, a tourist from Venezuela, to find him. Peres then Rishi photo in the newspapers and his friend from Argentina, so that both could hunt for the flag of their country on the chest of the Indian.

“It’s there,” Argentina cries of joy and shake hands with Rishi, inviting them to visit your country.

For such a serious tattoo record, the Guinness Rishi began relatively late: it was in 2009, when he saw someone sporting a tattoo of the flag, and admired the effect.

It pays tribute to Lokesh Verma, one of the founders of 27 years of Tattooz Devilz a seven tattoos imprinted on his forehead: Business India, United States, Britain, Cyprus, Canada, the Congress Party and the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not logo.

It took nine months and Verma is free because he understood the patriotic cause behind it, “said Rishi.

However, his family has reacted in a totally different way.

“My wife and children have told me that they never go to market myself or my family weddings,” she says, unrepentant. “But my clients have loved tattoos – because they had a chance to laugh at me.”

Yash Patel – Most number of cartwheels in a minute enters Limca Book of Records

Yash Patel – Most number of cartwheels in a minute enters Limca Book of Records

If you ask 9-year-old Yash Patel to point out Brazil on a map of the world, the chances are that he will fumble. But on March 15, this wonder kid from Gujarat’s capital broke the Guinness record for the most number of cartwheels in a minute, a record held till then by a Brazilian. And, on Saturday, Yash received a certificate with a medal from Guinness World Records for his extraordinary feat.

Yash’s record-breaking act took place at a reality show in Mumbai on March 15 this year. With 63 complete cartwheels in 60 seconds, he broke the record of 55 cartwheels in a minute held by the Brazilian.

The nine-year-old comes from a humble background. His father is a commando deployed with Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s security. “I am extremely thrilled that my son has achieved this remarkable feat at such a young age,” an elated Bach Patel told DNA.

While Yash’s father is bound by duty to stay in Gandhinagar, his native village in Kos, Surat, is planning a grand celebration. “We will take out a grand procession, complete with fireworks and a special band, once his father returns. Sweets will be distributed to every household,” said his uncle, Suresh Patel on phone from Surat.

Yash’s family was the first to notice his extraordinary skill. “While young kids either walk slowly or even crawl, Yash would cartwheel from one room to another. He used to do it all day and that’s when his parents realised that their kid had a special talent,” said Kuleen Patel who is now looking after Yash’s progress in gymnastics.

Too innocent to understand the hullabaloo around him, Yash, who studies in Standard IV at Kadi Prathmik School, Gandhinagar, wants to show his medal and certificate to his friends when the school reopens. “I love doing cartwheels and I want to learn other tricks of gymnastics. I will show the medal to my teachers and friends when I go back to Gandhinagar,” he said shyly.

Yash had also received praise from the chief minister after he completed 445 cartwheels in 15 minutes and entered the Limca Book of Records. Now with the Guinness World Record in his kitty, his aim is to win medals for the country at gymnastics events.”For the past one year, he has been training at SAI centre in Gandhinagar. We hope to find a sponsor for him so that he can train professionally and get awards for his talent.”

Firm determination and strong will power can surely make anyone unlock the doors to success. Same holds true for this 23-year-old artist ‘ Ashok Kumar, who has made a painting of the Golden Temple that stands 15 feet tall and is 51 feet in length. It took him almost three years to complete the masterpiece.

Ashok said, ”Around three years ago, I had a dream where I visualized myself painting the Golden Temple. I decided to realize my thoughts. After the final touches, I would display the masterpiece to the world.”

The painter belongs to a middle class family and had to undergo many hurdles during the task. Ashok said the public support helped him. ”I used 1,350 pencils, 2,600 small and 4,000 big brushes and thousands of colours. I even plan to use 20 tolas of gold to give the art a realistic appeal,” he said.

Discussing his future plans, Ashok said, ”I want to fight social evils like dowry and female foeticide. I would depict the pain faced by women in my next painting.” He claimed that his name was already listed in Limca Book of World Records for this work of art and he also hopes to reach the Guinness Book. He said, ”I would like to have the painting on display at a public place such as an airport, bus stand or railway station. This way more people could see it.”

Ashok’s proud father Khazan Kumar said, ”I am pleased with my son for having painted such a beautiful depiction of the historic place. The boy was so engrossed in the task that he even forgot his family and friends.”

91 Year Old Man Rappelled across a 1200 Feet Deep Valley set Limca Book of Record

Age is no limit for Narayan Krishna Mahajan.

The ninety-one-year old set a new high inspiration for people of all age groups by climbing a mountain 3,500 above sea level without any help or assistance, but for a walking stick as an occasional aid.

He tied himself to ropes, and rappelled from the top of the peak to the peak of another hill in India’s western state of Maharashtra on Sunday (February 20).

Mahajan said that he performed the adventure to instil the new age youngsters to be motivated to engage in outdoor sports and actions.

‘I don’t consider myself as old, because I believe that if one’s attitude is strong, the body would also be fit. The body should be maintained healthy since childhood. I have done this to boost the morale of the youngsters and they don’t get scared and participate in such activities,’ Narayan Krishna Mahajan said.

Mahajan said that he was not aiming to set a world record but only with an intention to encourage people to have a healthy and active lifestyle.

‘Don’t sit within the confines of your house, before the computer and television. Come out on the ground and play games like hockey, football, go for trekking, climb mountains and stay healthy. Then you will stay healthy at old age as well,’

Non stop cycling Delhi to Mumbai attempt World Record by Vinod Punamiya.

It may be hard to believe, but Mumbai-based Vinod Punamiya claims he can cover the 1485-km distance from Delhi to Mumbai on his cycle in JUST 30 HOURS!

Three years ago, at the age of 50, Punamiya, who hails from Dombivli, shocked the nation and registered his name in the Limca Book of Records when he cycled from Pune to Dombivli (distance of 140 km) in just two hours, 14 minutes, 14 seconds 20 minutes faster than the Deccan Queen train. “Ive been cycling for the last 30 years. It’s been my passion and I’ve always dreamt of doing something extra-ordinary to make my country proud,” said Punamiya of his next endeavour.

The 53-year-old cycling enthusiast, who will begin his journey from India Gate in New Delhi on February 19 at 7 am, is confident of touching the Gateway of India in Mumbai by 1pm the next day.

“Once I start my race from Delhi at 7am, I’m confident of reaching Jaipur by 11 am (distance of 272 kms), Ahmedabad by 1 am (another 753 kms) and Surat (another 260 kms) by 7am. Once, I enter Maharashtra, I will face a number of ghats, besides the traffic in Mumbai that will slow me down. But, I’m confident of achieving my target,” said Punamiya.

“I practice by riding daily for about 400-500 kms between Kolhapur and Satara. This has increased my stamina and confidence that I can ride 1485 kms non-stop,” said Punamiya.

Punamiya has previously covered the distance between Mumbai and Delhi in four days when he rode in memory of the 26/11 victims two years ago.

“Back then, it was in memory of the martyrs, but this time it will be a different challenge. It will be a lot faster,” assured Punamiya.

The fever of World Cup cricket has seen every where around the World. This time the cricket mania is more in India than other country because this year India also organized some matches.

The World Cup has caught everyone’s imagination, from sand artists to sculptors and advertisers, who want to wish Team India good luck.

International sand artist Sudarshan Patnaik has crafted a 125-ft long cricket bat, a ball and a stadium on the Puri beach. Patnaik has also launched a “sandy” signature campaign to wish the willow-wielders good luck.

“The sand sculpture will be featured in the Limca Book of Records as the longest cricket bat in sand,” said Patnaik with pride.

Fifteen students of Patnaik helped him to put the artwork together. The artist, who has in the past handcrafted mind-blowing sand images of Michael Jackson, Barack Obama, George Bush, Saddam Hussein and Santa Claus, has a long association with cricket. He was invited to England to prepare sand sculptures for the 2009 World Cup. Recently, he showcased a sand animation show to wish Team India in CEAT Cricket Award in Mumbai.

L Eswar Rao, a stone sculptor from Jatani, has created a miniature form of the World Cup on a pencil nib, probably the smallest world cup! The one centimetre long world cup is minutely crafted on the granite bar of a pencil with the help of a needle and a blade. Rao has also created a world cup which is about half an inch long with tamarind seed.

“Since I love cricket and I am a great fan of Sachin, I want to do something to cheer the Indian team. I don’t know if my message will reach them but I sincerely wish the Cup should come to India. Moreover, it is the last World Cup of Sachin. So it must come to India,” said 28-year-old Eswar.

Images: Indian culture, military might unfold at R-Day

People craned their necks to see Captain Ankur Deewan, who led the team, standing on a running motorcycle for more than half a kilometre.

As an announcement was heard asking people not to imitate the act as the Delhi traffic cops would levy a fine, the crowd burst into laughter. Delhi policemen men in the security wing also smiled.

The team is 45 years old. With five world records to their credit and six in the Limca Book of Records, the team has performed over 1,200 displays since 1965.

Among the first stunts to be showcased by the team, dressed in white and astride Enfield Bullet bikes, was the ‘Rocket’ formation which saw four signalmen on two motorcycles in a breathtaking display.

There was complete silence when 22 daredevils in lotus structure rode on two bikes.

It was daredevilry at its best.
