Lata Mangeshkar turns 81 - Guinness Record Holder most number of Song recordings in the world

Bollywood playback legend Lata Mangeshkar turns 81 Tuesday, with fans swearing by her golden voice even as she has chosen to cut down on assignments after singing for over 1,000 Hindi movies.

Starting her career in 1942, she reigned over the film industry for decades and is still the first preference of many filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Madhur Bhandarkar and an inspiration to established singers of today.
Lata Mangeshkar photo, Lata Mangeshkar picture, Lata Mangeshkar Guinness World Record 2011, Lata Mangeshkar 81 birthday, most number of Song recordings in the worldLata, who was born Sep 28, 1929, also featured in the Guinness World Records book from 1974 to 1991 for having made the most number of Song recordings in the world. She was last heard in Bhandarkar’s ‘Jail’.

‘Lataji’s birthday is a great event. She has given us so much in terms of music, love and affection. I just hope that she lives on forever and gives her blessings to us. I am very close to her and I am happy, proud and fortunate that she is close to me,’ said filmmaker Yash Chopra who has vowed only to work with her among the female singers in the industry.

‘Jab bhi ji chahe’ (Daag); ‘Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein’ (‘Kabhi Kabhie’); ‘Neela asman so gaya’ (‘Silsila’); Meri bindiya teri nindiya (‘Lamhe’); ‘Dholna’ (‘Dil To Pagal Hai’) and ‘Tere Liye’ (‘Veer Zaara’) are some of Lata’s hit numbers for Chopra.

Bhansali is in fact composing an album as a tribute to her.

‘I know every nuance in her voice. She is a miracle of nature. And there’s so much in her throat that is still untapped. I first thought I’d create just one song for her in ‘Guzaarish’. Then I thought, why one song when a whole ethos, era after era of supreme excellence is embodied in that voice?’ Bhansali told IANS.

‘Lataji is far more than a singer. She mirrors all the beauty of the soul. It is that beauty that I want to capture in my songs,’ he added.

Not just this, Bhansali’s forthcoming film ‘Guzaarish’ is also inspired by one of Lata’s imperishable melodies, ‘Hai tere saath meri wafaa mein nahin to kya’, composed by Madan Mohan and written by Kaifi Azmi for the film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’.

Starting her career in 1942 with songs in Marathi, Lata’s first Hindi song was ‘Paa lagoon kar jori’ for Vasant Joglekar’s movie ‘Aap Ki Seva Mein’ in 1946. Two years later, composer Ghulam Haider gave Lata her first major break with the song ‘Dil mera toda’ in ‘Majboor’ and after that there was no looking back for the nightingale of India, as she is fondly called.

She has worked with all the major composers of the bygone era and mesmerised the current lot too.

Lata has recorded songs for over 1,000 Bollywood movies and sung in more than 36 regional Indian languages. She is the second vocalist ever to have received the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour.

Lilting melodies like ‘Aayega aanewala’ from ‘Mahal’, ‘Aaja re pardesi’ from ‘Madhumati’, ‘Pyar kiya to darna kya’ from ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ and ‘Satyam shivam sundaram’ from the film of the same name still find a place on the favourite list of music lovers.

She has sung all kinds of songs in her long career, including romantic numbers like ‘Tumhen yaad karte karte’, ‘Ajeeb daastan hai yeh’, and naughty ones like ‘Main kamsin hoon’, ‘Bahon mein chale aao’, ‘Bangle ke peeche’ and ‘Choti si umar main’ as well as devotional songs like ‘Paoji maine Ram ratan dhan pao’ and ‘O palan hare’.

Even singers are still in awe of the great singer who is also the elder sister of singer Asha Bhosle.

‘I can’t express in words what she means to me and how I feel for her. Just want to wish her a happy and healthy life ahead,’ Sunidhi Chauhan told IANS.

Playback singer Sonu Niigaam added: ‘I want to wish a very happy birthday to Lataji. Many many best wishes to her. I would just like to tell her that keep enlightening India and world with your songs and bless me.’

The UAE Red Crescent and Kraft Foods are getting ready to make the world’s longest sandwich and enter it in the Guinness Book of World Records replacing the current title-holder sandwich of 2,000 metres long. The sandwich will be created on October 7.

“The longest sandwich in the world will use more than half a ton of cream cheese and 10,000 bread nuggets, 625 kgs of tomatoes, 250 kgs of cucumber and olive. Over 100 employees of Kraft Foods will work for more than four hours to make 10,000 sandwiches, which will encircle the Outlet Mall,” sources aware of the preparations told Emirates 24|7.

While it takes four hours to make 10,000 sandwiches, it will take another five hours for workers in select labour camps to eat the cream cheese sandwiches. The UAE Red Crescent has already identified the labour camps where the record making sandwiches will be distributed.

Kraft Foods and UAE Red Crescent will attempt to create history on October 7, at the Outlet Mall between 12-2 pm. As per the Guinness Book of World Records, the biggest sandwich ever made in the world weighed 3,178 kgs.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the largest sandwitch was made in March 2005 by Wild Woodys Chill and Grill, in Michigan USA.

The Lung Association, Brockville, Canada made an omelet that weighed 2.95 tonnes at the Brockville Memorial Centre, Ontario, Canada on May 11, 2002.

The longest line of pizzas measured 476.7m and was achieved by Tamburino Restaurant (UK) at the Quedam Shopping Centre, Yeovil, UK, on 29 June 2008. The line consisted of 2,129 pizzas. The record attempt started at 6am and it took 10 hours to complete. All the pizzas were made from scratch including mixing the dough, making the bases and adding the toppings.

Using 1,000kg of ostrich meat and 700kg of chicken, a team of chefs in Iran created a 1,500m ostrich sandwich-setting the world record for the longest ostrich sandwich. Displayed at the International Food and Health Festival in Tehran, the 1,000 kgs mega meal took about five tonnes of different ingredients, including chicken meat and sauce as well as ostrich. More than 1,000 cooks laboured from early morning in Tehran's Mellat Park to assemble the meat monster and it took two days to prepare the 1.4 tons of ostrich meat, chicken, mayonnaise, mushrooms, onions, garlic, spices and bread to make the 1.5km sandwich, which was eaten in minutes.

UAE aims to surpass all these records to become the reigning Sandwich King until someone else challenges the position.

World’s Smallest Animation - World's Smallest Stop Motion Animated Film Guinness Record by Nokia N8

World's Smallest Stop Motion Animated Film Guinness World Record by Nokia N8 

The Nokia N8 has been used in the making of the world’s smallest stop motion character animation. Certified by the Book of Guinness World Records, the animation was created by Aardman Animation. In an ambitious project, they combined the might of the Nokia N8's image capture ability with the concept behind Professor Fletcher’s invention of the CellScope.

Shooting only four seconds of footage per day, the team worked to produce the movie. Rather than create a model for the lead character which could be manipulated, the team instead created 50 versions of “Dot,” as she is named. Each Dot model started life as a sketch on paper which was then turned into a 3D render before being printed on a 3D printer. The models were then attached to a metal rod before being painted – the artist involved in painting basically couldn’t speak or breath as he applied his brushstrokes to the 9mm high models of Dot.

Fletcher’s invention of the Cellscope enables doctors in remote places to take pictures of blood samples with a mobile phone camera before sending them off for analysis. It is currently being tested in Uganda and has proven successful at helping to detect Malaria. Whilst the concept worked for Aardman, they had to come up with their own
variant in order to get the required depth of field for the images. With a few thousand frames shot on the N8's 12-megapixel camera, these were then stitched together to create the finished movie.

James Field - Bungee Jump Guinness World Record in London

A new Guinness World Record has been completed for bungee jumping. Bungee jumping has become a common recreation and is normally associated under the heading as a rush sport or an adrenalin sport, which basically means a sport that will get your pulse rate pumping to its limits.

James Field broke the world record of 19 jumps in one hour by performing a staggering 42 jumps in the allotted sixty minutes. Field completed the record yesterday in London close to Tower Bridge.

Health and safety was the number one priority for the world record attempt. After each and every jump the bungee rope was replaced with a new one and there were several assistants that checked and double checked all the equipment.

Field said that he felt a little bit dizzy after completing the new record. This is no surprise as he jumped from a platform 50 meters from the ground. He said that he had to concentrate his mind on the task as he threw himself of the platform, the task was made more challenging due to the windy weather.

He then went on to say that it was harder then he had expected and it required him to get into a rhythm and control his breathing. He also said that he thought that he had done his quota of jumps for the remainder of the year. So don’t expect to see him throwing himself from any other tall structures for some time to come.
