Arjun Sunil Kumar play the pitch-pipe organ continuously for 48 hours set Guinness Record

Arjun Sunil Kumar will attempt to play the pitch-pipe organ continuously for 48 hours to get his name featured in the Guinness Book of World Records.

If everything goes well, Arjun Sunil Kumar will find his way into the Guinness Book of World Records in a few months. This 14-year-old from Kozhikode is planning to set the world record by playing the pitch-pipe organ continuously for 48 hours.

Royal instrument

Pitch-pipe organ is a musical instrument made using metal pipes of various sizes, and arranged in such a way that each pipe gives a different sound. More than 50 pipes made in copper, brass and other metals are used in it. The instrument was very popular in France, Germany and Australia during the royal era. It is still popular in some parts of North India. Harindra Prasad Varma of Secunderabad, Narayan Naidu of Goa, Saidas Bhat and Ustad Ali Mohammed of Mangalore are some of the well known pitch-pipe players in India. Pitch-pipe organ suits all types of music whether it is Hindustani, Carnatic or Western.

The aspirant

Arjun, a Std IX student of S.N. College High School, Chelannur, has been learning music for more than six years. He is proficient in tabla and keyboard. He got interested in pitch-pipe after watching it in television once. His music teacher Radhakrishnan from Kozhikode, who has learned the instrument from Ustad Ali Mohammed, was also an influence.

Arjun gave his debut performance (Arangettam) at Sree Renuka Mariyamman Kovil in Tali on October 13, as a part of the Navarathri musical fiesta. He was accompanied by 17 of his friends on various musical instruments. He is now awaiting a reply from the Guinness Book of World Record authorities regarding his proposition. The feat is expected to take place in January next year. More than 160 children from all parts of the district are expected to accompany Arjun on various musical instruments.

Arjun's father Sunil Kumar runs a two-wheeler workshop in Kozhikode's famous S.M. Street while his mother Lathika is a housewife.

A dual tournament of epic proportions made a splash in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, last June 5-6 when 714 anglers squared off for more than $350,000 in cash and prizes. Today, that effort has officially been recognized by Guinness World Records as history's largest fishing tournament.

A combination of the Cabela's National Team Championship (NTC) and MWC's Lake Winnebago Central Division Qualifier, the event featured 358 teams (all but two of which were two-person teams). The NTC is one of the most prestigious competitions in the country. Teams qualify by accumulating points in local tournaments organized by more than 50 sanctioned grassroots walleye clubs. Now in its 26th season, the Cabela's MWC is the longest-running professional walleye tournament circuit in the United States.

"This is a great honor," said MWC Sr. Events Coordinator Dan Johnson. "The event was a huge team effort by Cabela's, circuit staff, volunteers and local organizers."

The two-day event was marked by great fishing and a festival atmosphere as crowds of walleye fans gathered in scenic Menominee Park for the weigh-ins, and countless more watched online. When the dust settled, hometown heroes Michael Galligan and Stuart Wells, both of Oshkosh, were crowned NTC champions for their 10-fish limit weighing 26.24 pounds--caught on Northland Fishing Tackle Weed Weasels. The team was awarded $30,000 for first place plus a new Evinrude-powered 619 Ranger boat valued at more than $50,000. The total NTC payout was more than $241,000 in cash and prizes.

On the MWC side, Greg DeKalb and Joe Ebel captured top honors and a $27,060 first-place paycheck with 10 fish weighing 28.63 pounds, caught trolling 'crawler harnesses over Winnebago's mud flats. In all, the top 35 MWC teams shared a $100,360 dollar cash purse plus $1,000 in Ranger Cup cash, $500 Lowrance HDS bonus, $500 Cabela's Angler Cash, and $200 U2 Oxygenator bonus.

"The Oshkosh event was a phenomenal experience," Johnson added. "And we're already looking forward to breaking the record at our Cabela's NTC and MWC Bays de Noc dual tournament August 5-7 in Escanaba, Michigan."

Cabela's, the World's Foremost Outfitter for hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, is in its ninth season as title sponsor of the MWC. Official sponsors of the MWC include: Berkley, Ranger Boats, Mercury, MotorGuide, Lowrance, Fishouflage, Versus (Vs.) Television Network and North American Fishing Club. Associate Sponsors include: O2 Marine Technologies, 3-IN-ONE No Rust Shield, Abu Garcia, Fin-tech, Northland Fishing Tackle, Ryjus, Reflections, Sea Grant and Wildlife Forever. Cabela's NTC sponsors include Geico, Evinrude, Famous Dave's, Ranger Boats and Pepsi.

Thriller night: Michael Jackson fans dance to break world record 2011

At 7 p.m. Saturday night, 8-year-old Marcus Garber slowly rose from the dead inside Harrisonburg's Valley Mall.

Playing the role of a "zombie" Michael Jackson, Marcus gave an impressive performance of Jackson's "Thriller" dance in front of the Belk department store, stepping in time with his fellow zombies in Harrisonburg and across the globe.

"I heard the whole world would be doing it, so I thought I'd join in," Marcus said before he made his death masquerade debut.

Dancers young and old participated in "Thrill The World" - an annual one-day event where people worldwide attempt to break the record for the largest simultaneous dance of "Thriller." According to the event's website, the event was created in 2006 by Canadian dance instructor Ines Markeljevic as a way to "inspire the world to dance."

Every October, registered participants in different countries dress in zombie-like costumes - ragged, ripped pieces of clothing and ghastly makeup - and follow Jackson's famous moves at the same day and time.

In addition to learning the dance, participants are asked to raise money for a charity of their choice.

Last year, Record Holders Republic, an official world record registry, gave "Thrill the World" a new record for having 22,923 people from 32 countries dance simultaneously to "Thriller."

The dancers began together after a countdown given by an Alice 93.7 DJ. The new Harrisonburg station advertised the event.

Those who wish to join the "Thrill The World" movement could learn the dance by watching either Markeljevic's DVD or online videos, both of which include a written script that associates words with dance steps.

"She made things simple by connecting dance moves with word prompts," said Karen Thomas, the event manager for Harrisonburg's performance.

Thomas, who teaches several dance classes at her downtown studio, Dancing With Karen, taught "Thriller" lessons once a month throughout the year beginning in January. After learning about "Thrill The World" from a couple she was teaching in August 2009, Thomas thought it would be fun to participate.

Although Thomas scheduled a "Thriller" performance last October inside the Dayton Learning Center, it wasn't an actual "Thrill The World" event.

"We didn't try to organize it into an event, it was more about just learning the dance," Thomas said.

This year, however, Thomas wanted to accomplish a record-breaking feat and raise money for two charities, Cat's Cradle and St. Mary's Pine Lutheran Church's Community Compassion Fund, which donates money to those with emergency needs.

Margo Cowolek, a 60-year-old avid dancer who's been taking classes at Thomas' studio for 15 years, personally raised close to $180 total for both charities.

Cowolek, who describes herself as a big fan of Jackson, decided to participate in the "Thrill The World" event as way to encourage Thomas' dance instruction and to introduce herself to other dancers.

"I'm a big supporter of Karen and everything that she does at the studio," Cowolek said. "I also wanted to meet some new people and I've made great friends."

Cowolek and her group of 18 zombies hit almost every move perfectly, looking like "Thriller" pros as they staggered and roared in unison before a crowd of children, teenagers and older adults.

Dancing toward the back, in a row near Cowolek, were JMU seniors, Rachel Kozlowski and Michelle Hunt.

Kozlowski, a mathematics major, attended the dress rehearsal the night before where she learned the entire dance from scratch.

"It was overwhelming at first, but it became easier because the steps are very repetitive," Kozlowski said.

The two friends have been trying to learn the "Thriller" dance since freshman year, but were never able to attend a formal lesson until Saturday night. Hunt, an interdisciplinary liberal studies major, thought learning the dance with strangers made performing easier.

"You can have fun with people you don't know and it doesn't feel weird," Hunt said. "We all feel kind of silly dressing up, so it takes the pressure away."

As the small group performed, two volunteers filmed the event with small video cameras. One of the two videos will be sent to Markeljevic, who will then submit the video as proof to the Record Holders Republic.

Currently, Markeljevic cannot submit videos of the performances to Guinness World Records, because there isn't a category for the largest simultaneous dance of "Thriller."
