A 25-year-old Nepalese school teacher has entered his name in the prestigious Guinness Book of World Records for holding 21 tennis balls in his single palm for a record 14.32 seconds.

Rohit Timilsina successfully held 21 lawn tennis balls on his pal for 14.32 seconds, breaking the previous record held by a French national Arnand Deschamp who had held 19 tennis balls for just 10 seconds.

Timilsina, a school teacher by profession, who is also a karate black belt holder had nurtured the unusual dream of recording his name in the Guinness book, since he was a class 8 student.

Timilsina had publicly demonstrated his skills on June 14, 2008 at the Satdobato Lawn Tennis Court in the presence of Supreme Court registrar and journalists.

He is, however, not satisfied with his performance and says he wants to set new records in volleyball, foot ball and gulf, if the government provided support.

Many Nepalese has set world records in mountaineering but very few has done it in other sector. Pratistha Bishta has set world record in Memory power.
