CIECHANOWIEC, Poland  -- Over 1500 Easter eggs from all over the world are gathered in the Easter Egg Museum in Ciechanowiec, founded by Irena Stasiewicz-Jasiukowa and Jerzy Jasiuk - setting the world record for the Largest Easter Egg Collection.

 The world's  Largest Easter Egg Collection was established in 2004.

   The founders of the museum, Irena Stasiewicz-Jasiukowa, Professor from the National Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, an authority in this field, and Jerzy Jasiuk, have been collecting eggs for 30 years.

   Antoni Mosiewicz from the museum said it was a rare collection.

    "It's the only museum in the world. There is no other museum which would collect Easter eggs from all over the world, from every continent, except Antarctica, and from every region in Poland," he said.

World's Largest Easter Egg Collection Museum



    The collection is made up of eggs decorated with wax, paint, colour paper, bulrush, knitting wool, as well as rice and poppy seeds.

    Each egg is a piece of art, unique in its type and come from finch, quail, chicken, goose and ostriches. Eggs comes from all regions of Poland and Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Czech Republic, China, Japan, Kenya, Brazil, Palestine, Greece, Cuba and many other countries in the world.

   There are those which are man-made. There are wooden and iron crafted eggs in the collection. Visitors to the museum have the chance to compare different styles and techniques which decorate the eggs to create works of art.

   Most of the techniques are now confined to history and aren't in use today. Polish folk Easter eggs form the majority of the exhibition, but there are eggs decorated in styles from countries such as China, Kenya, Japan and Russian.

   Antoni Mosiewicz, Agriculture Museum: "We've got bird eggs. From African finch to the ostrich eggs."

   Visitors to the museum have the chance to compare different styles and techniques, that decorate the eggs to create works of art. But most of the techniques are now outdated and aren't used today.

   Antoni Mosiewicz, Agriculture Museum: "It's the only museum in the world. There is no other museum which would collect Easter eggs from all over the world, from every continent, except Antarctica, and from every region in Poland."

Longest Line of Skiers set Guinness World Record - Japan

On 22 March 2010, 184 skiers from Iwate prefecture in Japan set a new world record for the longest line of skiers. Despite the severe condition with snowstorm, 159 children and 25 instructors participated in the record attempt at Hachimantai ski resort.

The event was organised by Touhoku Sakudoukyoukai Iwatechikubukai and Iwate Winter Resort Kyougikai to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of ski in Japan. It is believed that ski was first introduced to Japan from Australia in 1911. The main purpose of the organisers was to promote skiing to young children as the sport is not as popular as it used to be.

To be qualified for the record, each skier must be connected to the skier in front of and behind them. For this record attempt, the skiers were connected by holding a long rope and skied down a 1km slope. The rope was marked every 2 m to ensure the distance between each skiers was no more than 2.5 m, the rule set by Guinness World Records.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Kaoru Ishikawa travelled down the slope by the side of the skiers on a snowmobile to verify the attempt, and certified the success of the attempt with an announcement. Ms Ishikawa said to the crowd, ‘I was so excited to see you all skied so well I didn’t feel the cold at all. Congratulations!’. The children cheered with excitement as the certificate was presented and celebrated the new Guinness World Records accomplishment.

The aim of Antarnaad was to showcase the vast, masterful repertoire of Hindustani classical music as well as to provide a platform to bring to the fore the talent of the exponents of this ancient Indian art.

Stating that classical music and spirituality are among the most definitive and unique offerings India can make to the world, AOL founder and humanitarian, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had said at the event, Spirituality and music together can uplift people, get them out of depression and help them start a new life with enthusiasm. For a stress-free life, you have to embrace both these facets (spirituality and music).

Spiritual Water Fountain Show at Akshardham Temple Gandhinagar - India

A spectacular show on water screen using effects of fire, sound laser, water and video at Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, left 2,000 spectators spellbound on Saturday.
The first of its kind immersive show  a fusion of high-end technology and India’s cultural heritage was exhibited in the multi-media format on a water screen primarily consisting of water droplets.With a view to educate the masses of the glorious Indian culture, the show captures the spiritual message of an Upanishad story,said Swami Maharaj, head of Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar-Purshottam Swaminarayan Sanstha, which organised the show.
It is a unique blend of technology and spirituality as the quintessential scientific mind of a boy tries to interpret the boundary between life and death, said R Chidambaram, a nuclear scientist.

The 45-minute programme, Sat-Chit-Anand, conducted on a 60-ft wide water screen was a united effort by sadhus of the temple who conceptualised the central story. Its creative director is Yves Pepin of the 2008 Beijing Olympics fame (artistic advisor).
But what held the audience captivatedwas the conversation between nine-year-old Nachiketa and lord of death Yama. In the latter’s abode, they talk about eternity, life after death and the three worlds.
Use of colourful lights and high-powered projectors helped in depicting a ghostly atmosphere with anacondas squirming at the gate of death, spikes coming from nowhere to kill the child, dancing demons, fire, volcanic eruptions and lightning  all on the water screen.
The use of 4,000 nozzles, 2,000 lights, over 100 pumps and twelve fireball throwers supplemented quick change of locations  from hell to heaven and cosmos. The show also made for a comical viewing for children.

World's Biggest Rabbit - Guinness World Record



He's the world's biggest Easter bunny... a real 24-carrot chompion. Darius, from a breed called Continental Giant, weighs a thumping three-and-a-half stone and is 4ft 3in long. Despite being only 13 months old, he gets through at least a dozen carrots a day. That's apart from two bowls of special rabbit mix, three apples and a cabbage.
And Darius - pictured being cuddled by petlover Georgia Hadley, six - still hasn't peaked.
Owner Annette Edwards, 59, expects another six months of growth. Darius gorges on hay between meals, which seems to give him a chilled-out attitude
Annette, from Worcester, has bred big bunnies before but Darius - the son and grandson of previous record holders Alice and Amy - is easily the biggest.
She said: "I measured him this weekend and realised he is far larger than any of his predecessors. He is so gentle and I wonder if this has helped him grow bigger than the rest. He runs around all the time, so the combination of food and exercise has worked out for him."
She added: "He really is a handsome beast - there's always a bit of a glint in his eye when you go near him."

                                            World's Biggest Rabbit picture
Darius is the step-brother of another super-rabbit, Ralph, owned by Pauline Grant, 73, of Uckfield, East Sussex. Ralph hit the headlines last month - but has since been overtaken by Darius, who may be set for a world tour.
Annette - who recently splashed out £10,000 on surgery and diets to turn herself into a real-life Jessica Rabbit - has already begun auditions to find someone to take her heavyweight pets to appearances around the globe.
She admits she was stunned by her latest record breaker. She said: "People ask what my secret is, but there really isn't one, other than just treating them well and looking after them."
A Guinness World Records spokesman said: "It's amazing that a rabbit could grow to more than 4ft long."
