In an effort to spread Gandhi's message of peace and non -violence, about 255 students from a school in Coimbatore city of southern India's Tamil Nadu state dressed up as Mahatma Gandhi.

Draped in white 'dhotis', or unsewn cloth, and sporting fake moustaches and spectacles they walked along holding bamboo canes and singing the 'Vande Mataram' song.

The students set a record and got the event registered in Limca Book of Records, a record book of Indian origin.

"For them it is a question of giving inspiration to the rest of the country's children that not to forget the fact that Mahatma Gandhi was the father of the Nation after all," said Aarthy, Editor, Limca Book of Record.

In keeping with the spirits of the event, 52 of the 255 students chose to actually shave their heads. Others covered their hair with cloth to look as if they were bald.


"Gandhi is the father of our nation and he loved peace and non-violence. I am very proud to be as Gandhi for a day, for this Guinness World Record, very proud," said participant Karthic Barathi.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi, pioneered the philosophy of nonviolent resistance and was a major figure in the struggle for Indian independence. A Hindu radical assassinated him in 1948 in New Delhi.
