AFTER ALL the singing marathons by two girls and a youth in an attempt to enter their names in the Guinness Book of World Record, now it is the attempt by a student of BBA course (I sem) of Kothari College to try his hand at non-stop writing for 51 hours.
Prashant Kumar who hails from Chitrakoot (UP) and is residing with his grand parents in Vir Sawarkar Nagar got inspired from the records made and broken by some youths of the City recently. While speaking about his ‘unique’ attempt as he calls it Prashant says, “I was previously felicitated with an award by Governor of Uttar Pradesh and also gave an examination for an award to be given by the President of India when I was in 10th standard, but could not pass the examination.
So when I heard about these kinds of records being made by children younger than me I thought to try to make a record too.” Prashant began his record effort from Wednesday 4 pm.
As far as the prescribed procedures to register in Guinness Book of Records Prashant claims to have got registered for the record.
When asked about instructions from the Guinness Bok of World Record team he said that the team has just asked for a video CD and newspaper cuttings as evidence.
Prashant will write Ramayana ‘dohas’ and ‘chopayiis’ and poems and was also planning to write some text material from his BBA syllabus.
He takes a break every seven hours. Everybody including his father Kamlakar Pandey who is a farmer in Chitrakoot and grandfather Kamlesh Pandey, a retired defence personnel here are hoping for the best and wishing him all the best.
