Indore’s Srishty Patidar, a young 23-year-old software engineer, has taken the city on world map by creating a world record of playing drums non-stop.

The drummer, who has always been keen on playing drums since the age of 14, set a world record of playing drums non-stop for 31 hours at Gandhi Hall in Indore on Tuesday with the Golden Book of World Records.

She started playing drums at 12 pm on Monday and concluded her set on Tuesday at around 8 pm, breaking the previous record of Sophia, a Mexican lady who played for 24 hours and 10 minutes.

Srishty, who completed her school education from Navoday Vidyalaya in Sitamau under Mandsaur district, started her musical journey from her school.

“I started playing drums when I was in IX grade. Before drums, I used to play Congo, harmonium and many other musical instruments. But then drums became my passion,” she said while talking to HT City.

After shifting her base to Indore in the year 2011 for her engineering, Shrishty took the help of internet to follow her passion for drums.

She says, “Although my music teacher in school Sheela Vaishnav, taught me to play drums, which was not enough. When I shifted to Indore, I started learning it through YouTube. I would take online tutorials for drumming.”

To register her name as the world record holder, Srishty practiced daily for at least six to eight hours since almost past one year. It was her hard work and dedication that brought her to create the record at her first attempt.

As per the rules, Srishty’s 31 hours of playing was visually recorded. Officials from the Golden Book of World Records were also present during her attempt. The officials immediately handed over a certificate to Srishty, declaring her as the new world record holder of playing drums non-stop for 31 hours.
