At a mere 25 inches (63.5 centimetres) tall, Zaw Bala Aung had lofty dreams of breaking a Guinness World Record, but at 10 years old, he will not officially qualify for the world’s shortest man for another eight years.

The boy, also known as Balagyi, was born in a Burmese village called Htanpoutkone in Kyaukpadaung Township on March 10, 2000, the second child of four and the only son for parents Win Lwin and Khin Hla. However, he is the only one of his siblings with primordial dwarfism and weighs 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms), with a head circumference of 13 inches (33 centimetres).

Yesterday he and his family decided it was time to throw his name in the hat for the title of the world’s shortest man and held a press conference at Karaweik Hall in Burma’s former capital, Rangoon.

“He was medically examined and his medical record is fine,” said a reporter named Khin who was representing the family. “His bone growth had stopped.”

Khin said they recently sent Zaw Bala Aung’s measurements and medical records to Guinness for consideration. Unfortunately, he will not pass the age test.

“To quality for the Guinness World Records title of world’s shortest man, claimants must be 18 years or older (assuming the first year of life is considered year 0, and not year 1),” the measurement body’s website says. “This is irrespective of sexual maturity or a society’s legal, ritualistic or religious coming of age.”

Supporting the entire family by selling shwe yin aye, a traditional Burmese dessert, his father said he was happy that they could do this for his son.

The Guinness World Records has yet to declare a successor to He Pingping, who held the title until March this year when he died at the age of 21. He measured 2 foot, five inches or 74.61 centimetres. 

However, Zaw Bala Aung has competition. Nepalese teenager Khagendra Thapa Magar, who is 17 years and eight months and reaches only 20 inches, claims he should be officially verified as the world’s shortest man, but the official body has rejected the claim, at least for another four months.

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.

World's Largest Yoga Class set World Record 2010 - Standard Hotels and Jetblue

World's Largest Yoga Class photo, Biggest Yoga Class in New York picture and video
What does it look like when 10,000 people downward dog? Well, something like what we saw yesterday evening in New York City's Central Park, when Flavorpill partnered up with the likes of Standard Hotels and Jetblue to create a world record for the largest yoga class ever.

a whim to check it out, after registering last-minute and printing our free ticket. With the class scheduled to start at 7pm, the line to enter at 6pm snaked through what seemed like half of the park, coiling down paths, under bridges, over rocks and down grassy hills.

The offer of a free tote, Gaiam yoga mat and more sure helped get the word out, and by 7:30pm we were all an example of the power of social media when mixed with free stuff and the outdoors as we began to do downward dogs, sun salutations and cobras until rainclouds surprised everyone.

When all was said and done, over 13,000 had registered for the event and they made the record. If only the weather had cooperated, we'd have seen 10,000 people doing far more advanced poses, but don't worry too much; there'll be a rain date.
Dharma Mittra led the crowd in a chanting of "Om" before Brower taught a single sun salutation before the Parks Department required the event be shut down for rain. "Twenty thousand hands and ten thousand hearts full of gratitude later, the rain poured down," Brower wrote today on her blog.

Not all was lost. Participants spent a couple hours mingling in the sunshine before the yoga itself began, enjoying one another's company and entertainment by musical performer Reggie Watts, and taking in the sheer scale of the experience.

"This isn't just a yoga event, it's a cultural event," said Mark Mangan, co-founder of Flavorpill, who hosted the event. Flavorpill's other founder, Sascha Lewis, is a longtime yoga student of Brower's.
"Take your practice home with you. Be in the moment. Celebrate life. This is what it's all about," he told the crowd of anticipating yogis, minutes before the rain.
