'Ram' scribbled 12300 times on postcard

Shailesh Kumar Jain, a resident of Indore, has attempted to create a record by writing "Ram" over 12,000 times on a postcard.

Shailesh, 35, who runs a small utensil shop here, felt motivated after reading a news report about a person from Khandwa who had written 10,000 alphabets on a postcard.

Shailesh claims that he spent six hours for 12 days, and wrote the word "Ram" 12,358 times on normal postcard. The words have been written so minutely that one cannot read them without using a magnifying glass.

"I decided to create a record in 10-12 days. I wanted to do it as soon as possible, and finally did it in 12 days, " said Shailesh.

During his attempt, Shailesh used a pencil as he felt it could write more words in less space.

"Earlier, pens have been used for writing words, but I have used a pencil for it. I used to make the tip of the pencil very sharp so that more words can be incorporated in less space. Such writing needs a lot of patience, as it's a very detailed work, and the pencil used to break many times," said Shailesh.

Shailesh has made a request to the Limca Book of Records and the Guinness Book of Records to include his feat in their records.
