The students are planning a domino show at the historic RJ Mathai auditorium by toppling over 10,000 dominoes to unveil a design inspired by their golden jubilee logo.

Secretary of IIM's media cell, Glen D'Silva said: "The current India record as per the authorities at Limca is 7000 dominoes by Microsoft India at the launch of Windows 7. Our aim is to make a figure using 10,000 dominos and reach a figure of at least 12,000. A team of about 20 students has been working through the nights for the past 10 days to practice for this event."

According to D'silva, the challenge is to keep the domino as stable as possible as even if one of them gets the slightest touch of finger or hand, the entire things will topple off. It has to be set up with a particular precision."

Says Abhinav Jain, general secretary of the students' council: "We are trying to convey to the world outside IIMA that our students are not merely restricted to studies but they also move, think and create."

The entire setup will take at least five hours and they will kick start the show at around 3am, although the event will take a mere three to four minutes. Students have placed an order for nearly 16,000 pieces of dominos from the old city, which are made of compressed sawdust - quite different from the regular wooden ones."

Anirban Das, a PGP1 student said, "I was in the team of Microsoft which holds the current record and I hope to break the record with the IIMA team this year". The domino show will kick-off at 10.30 am at the RJM auditorium on December 11.

Largest crowd at an Ice Hockey Game at Michigan Stadium set Guinness World Record

Largest Attendance at an Ice Hockey Game at Michigan set Guinness Record

The Big Chill at the Big House on Saturday in Ann Arbor still set a world record for attendance at a hockey game, but it appears to be going into the books as a much smaller crowd than anticipated.

Guinness World Records has certified the crowd for the Michigan vs. Michigan State game at Michigan Stadium at 85,451 people, far short of the announced attendance of 113,411. It still was enough to beat the previous attendance mark of 77,803, set during the opening game of the IIHF world championships in May, when Germany hosted the United States.

A Guinness spokesperson e-mailed the 85,451 figure to the Free Press today. A follow-up e-mail about whether the number could still grow was not immediately returned.

"We will continue to work with Guinness to identify the exact number of people that went through the scanners and those who had their tickets torn," said Matt Trevor, assistant media relations director for U-M hockey. "We knew we would end up with two different numbers because of different standards used."

Trevor said Guinness doesn't count those who were working the game, including media, staff and concession workers. Michigan does include those people in its attendance figure.

The Cold War between U-M and MSU in 2001 at Spartan Stadium drew 74,554 fans.

World's Largest Santa Claus Parade at Portugal set Guinness World Record

15,000 santas have paraded through the streets of Porto in northern Portugal in an attempt to enter the Guinness World Records for the largest ever gathering of the Christmas figure.

Last year, this initiative resulted in 14,472 people dressed up as Santa Claus, which beat the world record.

Once again, the idea this year was to surpass the previous record, but also to provide Christmas presents for children in need.

For each Santa that passed the finish line of the parade's route, €1 was given to the cause by the event's organisers.

The organisers of the event had distributed 19,000 Santa Claus suits.
