Maximum pushups or dips set India Book of Record - Ronak Vitha

One of Aamir Khan's biggest fans, four-and-a-half year old Ronak Vitha, is planning to enter the India Book of Records by performing maximum pushups in a limited amount of time. Trainer Satyajit Chaurasia, who gave Aamir his spectacular body for Ghajini, is preparing the boy for this feat.

At it from two Satya (as he is fondly called by his star clients) relates, "When Ronak's parents came to me four months ago, he could manage to do 600 pushups or dips but now he can do 1,500 push ups in 49 minutes. He said he was inspired by Aamir in Ghajini and started doing pushups since he was two. Ronak told me that he wanted to train under me as I had trained Aamir. I was impressed and signed him on. He is my youngest pupil."

The young boy doesn't just want to have a body like Aamir, but also wants be the strongest child in the world. Satya adds, "Ronak wants to meet Aamir when he has time. He was inspired by his dips in Ghajini and started doing that as a baby. Now he's training basically stretching, hanging for flexibility, pushups and yoga asanas.

“I used to think that children can't do pushups but this little boy has shown me otherwise. In the last one year Ronak has grown 8 inches. He's flexible like Rubberman. He comes twice a week to my studio and works out for one hour and also takes lessons at home."

Like Aamir, he eats right too
Breakfast: Cornflakes and milk and after exercise he had an egg with multigrain bread.
Lunch: Roti, sabzi and daal
Evening snack: Brown bread chutney sandwiches and an egg.
Dinner: Roti, sabzi and daal.

Satya adds, "Like every child, he loves the usual chocolates and ice-cream. I give him a chocolate after every workout.”

Going for the records Ronak's father, Atul Vitha, says, "We have sent Ronak's name for doing the maximum pushups in the least time in the India Book of Records and we hope he makes it. He's inspired by Aamir and his Ghajini look and wants to be as strong as him. He wants to become the strongest child in India and the world.

World’s finest collection of important Chinese snuff bottles set world record 2010

LONDON.- Bonhams Hong Kong today celebrated the first-ever “Golden Gavel Auction” in its history, when part of the world’s finest collection of important Chinese snuff bottles, the Mary and George Bloch Collection, sold 100% and achieved world record prices. Against presale estimates of HK$20,000,000 (£1.8m), the sale total was HK$66,146,800 (£5.8m), with every one of the 140 rare bottles successfully sold. This figure was double the previous sale total for a single-owner snuff bottle auction held in New York on 19 March 2008.

Auctioneer Colin Sheaf, Chairman of Bonhams Asia, commented: “This is the finest auction of Chinese art which Bonhams has held in Asia, and the record prices proved that the market for Chinese art remains very strong for the most important pieces”.

As expected, the star of the auction was lot 129, one of the most beautiful bottles in private hands ever made for the Imperial Court of 18th Century China. Estimated at HK$1,800,000 – 3,000,000, international bidders from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and the UK battled the bidding up to a final figure of HK$9,280,000 (£821,383,000), a new world record price for a snuff bottle.

Other record prices included lot 140, an inscribed nephrite pebble-material snuff bottle which went for a world record price for any jade snuff bottle at HK$6,032,000 (estimate: HK$1,000,000 – 2,000,000); lot 132, an Imperial “famille-rose” ‘bird on branch’ enamelled glass snuff bottle, Qianlong mark and period, which sold at HK$5,248,000 (estimate: HK$2,000,000 – 4,00,000) a world record for any enamelled glass snuff bottle; lot 27, an Imperial famille-rose poreclain bottle, Qianlong mark and period, similar to others in the National Palace Museum, Taiwan, which sold at HK$3,960,000 (estimate: HK$1,400,000 – 2,000,000), a world record for any enamelled porcelain snuff bottle; lot 8, a double-overlay sapphire-blue and white glass ‘dragon’ snuff bottle which sold at HK$672,000 (estimate: HK$220,000 – 350,000), a world record price for any glass overlay snuff bottle; lot 34, an inside-painted rock-crystal snuff bottle which sold at HK$336,000 (estimate: HK$60,000 – 120,000), a world record for any inside-painted snuff bottle by Gan Xuanwen; and two other superb Imperial Beijing enamel bottles, lot 77, which flew past its estimate of HK$1,400,000 – 2,500,000 to make HK$4,200,000 and lot 67, which sold for HK$2,640,000 (estimate HK$1,800,000 – 3,000,000).

Many of the finest bottles at Bonhams were bid for and bought by active collectors from Mainland China, the first time that such strong demand from Chinese buyers has been seen anywhere in the world for Imperial Chinese snuff bottles.

Bonhams’ Head of Chinese Ceramic and Works of Art in Hong Kong Julian King who prepared the auction, said: “Today saw a new buying power in the world market for Imperial Chinese art. This marked an important change in the whole structure of prices for the finest pieces at Bonhams.”

Julia Gnuse - Most tattooed woman in the world set Guinness World Record 2010

American woman Julia Gnuse has been named the most tattooed woman in the world.

She started getting herself inked after doctors diagnosed her with skin condition called porphyria, which causes the skin to blister when exposed to sunlight.

Now, Gnuse a.k.a the ‘illustrated lady’ has set a Guinness World Record for being the most tattooed woman in the world.

She has 95 per cent of her body covered with tattoo.

She has inscribed jungle scenes, cartoons and images of her favourite actors on her skin, Daily Mail reports.

She got her first tattoo on her leg before moving to stomach, arms and back.

She revealed that tattoos cover up the scars on her skin.

"I did this for the reason of covering scarring from the blisters. They get as deep as three degree burn," the Couriermail quoted her, as saying.

She added: "I had a friend who is a plastic surgeon, who suggested tattooing my skin the same color to the scarring that I had, seeing if we can match my just pale-looking skin that I had.


That didn’t work. We tried it. It was very difficult to match that. So I had the idea of a colorful tattoo, then I got hooked. I got addicted."

Gnuse chose ink over medication, as the treatment would have put her at risk of blindness.

All the tattoos on her body have been created by one tattoo artist.
