Longest service as personal assistant to minister set Limca Book of Record by Arun Buch

Longest service as personal assistant to minister set Limca Book of Record by Arun Buch

Arun Buch, a 75-year-old resident of Gandhinagar, has achieved a unique distinction. He has been listed in the Limca Book of Records for “completing the longest service as personal assistant to minister”.

The certificate, signed by Limca book editor Vijay Ghosh, states: “Buch of Gandhinagar who joined the government service in 1958 completed the longest service as personal assistant to minister, having served 35 years as PA to six different ministers in Gujarat government before retirement in 1995. He had been appointed PA to a minister in the very first government of the state on May 26, 1960.”

Buch, who was born in Rajkot, lives in Gandhinagar with his wife Jyostana, a retired government employee. His daughter Chetna is married to a Gandhinagar resident.

He began his service in the Directorate of Ayurveda on April 4, 1958. “Following an interview, I was chosen to work in the Chief Minister’s Office. However, I decided to join as PA to minister Bahadur Patel. I worked with seven ministers, all of whom had a down-to-earth approach. They would visit remote areas of the state and interact with the poor,” said the 75-year-old.

About Bahadur Patel, he recollected: “When Patel’s term ended, he had no money for the fare to return to his native place. His friends gave him the Rs 110 he needed to reach Kareliya village in Vansda taluka. He built a hut on his farm and stayed there. Patel, who was a minister for 11 years, had returned to Kareliya because he did not have the money (Rs 3,800) to contest polls.”

About minister Parmanand Ojha, he revealed, “Ojha was from Una taluka in Junagadh. A lot of villagers would visit his bungalow. Instead of dipping into the state coffers, as many politicians do, Ojha sold off 2 acres of his farmland so that he could take care of his guests.” Buch added, “The ministers cared for their people. During the 1982 floods in Ahmedabad, the railway station was flooded. Amarsinh Chaudhary — the then irrigation minister — waded through the water, spoke to residents and got them moved to safety. This decision saved the lives of 600 people.”

“Today, most ministers talk only to industrialists not the common people. This is a difference seen in Gujarat as it enters its 51st year,” he said.

Dubai,Deira Gold Souq - World's biggest gold ring set Guinness World Record

The value of a 63.856 kg, 21-carat gold ring on display in Dubai has shot up due to the spiralling price of the yellow metal, its owner has said.

The ring, which has a Guinness Book of World Records certificate for being the world's biggest gold ring, is on display at the Deira Gold Souq (market) in Dubai.

According to its owners, its value has multiplied several times over the years, due to the record gold price now.

It is studded with 5.1 kg worth of precious stones from Signity Middle East and its creation was supported by the World Gold Council .

"While it cost $547,000 to make the ring in the year 2000, the current value is worth over USD 3 million. This is the world's biggest gold ring and we have displayed it on behalf of Taiba, the Saudi Arabian jewellery maker who made this unique piece in 2000 when the gold price was only USD 250 per ounce," Kanz Jewellers Managing Director Anil Dhanak said.

"Now the value of gold has gone up to USD 1,500 per ounce, so you can imagine how much fortune the idle gold ring has brought to its owner," Dhanak told Emirates 24/7.

"The ring is currently owned by Taiba, but we have displayed it to promote much smaller wearable rings. This ring has inspired many gold enthusiasts to buy replicas," he said.

The Najmat Taiba ring has a 2,200-mm perimeter, a 700-mm outer perimeter, a 490-mm inside diameter, 500-mm width on its back and 250-mm width on the ring bottom. It has 615 Swarovski stones embedded in it. Fifty-five workers worked 45 days continuously for 10 hours a day to make this piece.

NEW DELHI: An Advocate of the Supreme Court, Radhakanta Tripathy, has created a national record and entered the Limca Book of Records 2011 edition for filing the maximum number of petitions yet in a single day.

Tripathy filed 703 petitions with two national commissions in a single day. On November 17, 2009, he submitted 409 petitions with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and 294 petitions with National Commission for Scheduled Caste (NCSC).

The petitions were to draw the attention of both the commissions towards the human rights violations like forceful displacement of over 20,000 families from their homes and large scale felling of trees for the river canal Sanskar projects in Bhadrak district of Orissa.

Both the commissions took cognizance of the petitions and initiated action upon them for the great relief of thousands of aggrieved people.

The Limca Book of Records honoured Tripathy with a certificate for the commendable feat that brought him this coveted national record.

Tripathy has been practicing at the apex court since 2003 and filed a number of petitions and public interest litigations in the Supreme Court, in the High Courts of Delhi and Orissa and at all the national commissions, including the National Commission for Women, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, National Commission for Scheduled Tribes and finally, the National Commission for Minorities.

On this, the poll panel had issued notices to all the Chief Secretaries and Chief Electoral Officers in the country.

Tripathy also filed hundreds of RTI applications seeking information on a variety of controversial subjects and was instrumental in getting filled the vacancies in the national commissions which were in limbo, on the directions of the apex court.

Most number of people attending a mass circumcision set World Record by Philippine

Most number of people attending a mass circumcision set World Record by Philippine

Hundreds of boys in a Philippine city turned out Saturday for a daylong "circumcision party" to provide a safe, free procedure for a rite of passage that most local males undergo as preteens.

Some boys cried in their mothers' arms while others bit their shirts to stifle sobs as doctors carried out the surgery on dozens of makeshift operating tables inside a sports stadium in Marikina city east of Manila. Outside, other boys lined up to await their turn.

"I'm a big boy now," one boy who had just finished the surgery bragged.

Officials said the event — touted in a press statement as a "circumcision party" — aims to promote safe circumcision and to offer to poor residents free surgery that would otherwise cost at least $40 in private hospitals.

As of mid-afternoon, nearly 1,500 boys aged 9 years and up had been circumcised while many were still waiting in line, city health officer Dr. Alberto Herrera said.

In the Philippines, preadolescent and adolescent boys traditionally are circumcised during summer school break from March to May. In rural areas, the surgery is sometimes performed by non-doctors using crude methods.

The city also hopes to establish a world record for the number of people attending a mass circumcision.

"We applied for the Guinness Book of World Records and we are recording everything so we can send all the data to them and hopefully it will be recognized," Vice Mayor Jose Fabian Cadiz said.

Marikina, the country's shoemaking capital, was recognized by Guinness in 2002 for creating what was then the world's biggest pair of shoes.

University of Chicago Largest Scavenger Hunt breaks Guinness World Record

University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt breaks Guinness World Record

The University of Chicago Largest Scavenger Hunt, held every Mother's Day weekend, has always called itself the largest scavenger hunt in the world, but until this year, it has never really had the right to the title. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of this event, Head Judge Grace Chapin set out to create a special event, a "scav within a scav" as participant Aaron Horton called it, to capture the Guinness Book of World Records title. On the evening of Friday May 6, I joined in on the fun as a participant.

Until this year, the actual title for largest scavenger hunt was held by a group of children from St. Anthony's Catholic School in Ontario, Canada, at 212 people. But before registration was closed on Friday, judges (students and alums who organize the event) realized that Scav Hunt had surpassed that number, and began to start turning away people because they were running out of copies of the list. This event wasn't inclusive to UofC students; as typical of Scav, anyone can participate.

Speaking by phone on Saturday, Head Judge Grace Chapin said that though the Judges were still doing final counts, their conservative estimate is that the event had 920 participants, with a five person margin of error. The judges had made enough packets for 750 people and expected only 600 participants. But as the line of 200 people stretched on, they rushed to make more.

Isolated within the main quads, participants formed groups of four, and were given an hour to fill in information on a page and a half list, all of which could be gleaned from buildings, landmarks, and judges on the quads. Surprisingly, Chapin said that the list was one of the last things the judges prepared for this event. They were more concerned with finding a space that would align with the requirements of the Guinness Book of World Records, and that was large enough to hold everyone.

When asked whether she thought this event had drastically changed the Scav Hunt from years past, Chapin said she didn't think so. "So many people considered us to be the world's largest scavenger hunt anyway," Chapin said. She and the other judges were excited about the amount of support they had received from the University, and the memory that Scavvies would be left with from participating in this historic event. The judges were also excited about the verve of their participants: "People didn't just show up and kind of noodle around," Chapin said.

Though the event won't officially be considered the world's largest scavenger hunt until all the paperwork is filed, the judges are confident that their event will be counted. And as for the legacy of this event for the University of Chicago community, Chapin believes that it can only help improve the opinion of Scav on campus. "Now people are saying that its cool, instead of 'What's that weird Scav Hunt thing?'"

Jay Ohrberg created the longest limousine for exhibition purposes, however this news became a big sensation and many people were dreaming about hiring such a limousine. That’s why Jay provides the limousine for rentals for various functions and events. However the limousine is too long for driving in the streets and technically it’s not quite legal, but with specially trained chauffeurs in both cabins it’s possible.

And nobles can get everything they can imagine in such limousine where state of the art luxuries abound. The longest limousine in the world is featuring a heated Jacuzzi tub nestled in the interior, a swimming pool, and a king sized bed, and a sun deck, a helipad and the televisions connected to the limousine’s own satellite dish.

World's Most Dangerous Road - Top Most Dangerous Road in the World.

1.Bolivia's Road of Death

North Yungas Road is hands-down the most dangerous in the world for motorists. If other roads could be considered impassable, this one clearly endangers your life. It runs in the Bolivian Andes, 70 km from La Paz to Coroico, and plunges down almost 3,600 meters in an orgy of extremely narrow hairpin curves and 800-meter abyss near-misses.

A fatal accident happens there every couple of weeks, 100-200 people perish there every year. In 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank named the La Paz-to-Coroico route “the world’s most dangerous road.”

Among the route there are many visible reminders of accidents, wrecked carcasses of lorries and trucks lie scattered around at the bottom.

The buses and heavy trucks navigate this road, as this is the only route available in the area. Buses crowded with locals go in any weather, and try to beat the incoming traffic to the curves.

It does not help that the fog and vapors rise up from the heavily vegetated valley below, resulting in almost constant fogs and limited visibility. Plus the tropical downpours cause parts of the road to slide down the mountain.

Note: The Bolivian road of death has been closed to regular traffic for a year or two now. There is a newer, much much safer road connecting La Paz to the Yungas now. The road of death is now open only to tour buses, hikers, and bikers. The traffic now is so low that others are not really an issue.


2. Russian Siberian Road to Yakutsk

This is the official federal-government highway to Yakutsk, and it is also the only one to get there. As there are no other roads, the intrepid motorists are doomed to wallow in this dirt, or wait in week-long 100 km car line-ups (they say women even gave birth there while waiting).

This can turn into a major humanitarian disaster during rainy spells, when the usual clay covering of the road turns into impassable mud blanket, swallowing trucks and tractors alike. In the meantime the city has to partly airlift food products.
3. Magnificient Guoliang Tunnel Road in China
- Road that does not tolerate any mistakes

The road shown here is the Guoliang Tunnel in Taihang mountains (China). It has been built by villagers themselves, which is an inspiring story in itself:

“Before 1972, the path chiseled into the rock used to be the only access linking
the village with the outside world. Then the villagers decided to dig a tunnel through the rocky cliff. Led by Shen Mingxin, head of the village, they sold goats and herbs to buy hammers and steel tools. Thirteen strong villagers began the project. It took them five years to finish the 1,200-metre-long tunnel which is about 5 meters high and 4 meters wide. Some of the villagers even gave their lives to it. On May 1, 1977, the tunnel was opened to traffic.”

Apparently some companies make business on the road’s dubious fame by selling the extreme bike tours down that road. “Gravity Assisted Mountain Biking” is one of them. (you can read one such biker’s account here.) If you are nuts enough to consider it, please be advised that you will be only adding to the road hazards, as it’s hard to spot a cyclist on the road’s hairpin curves, and your shrieks (as you fall down the abyss) will disturb the peace and quiet of the villagers nearby.

Osama bin Laden - World's most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden killed in Pakistan

World's most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden killed in Pakistan.

Osama bin Laden, the elusive mastermind behind the devastating September 11, 2001, terror attacks that led the United States into war in Afghanistan and later Iraq, was killed in a firefight, President Barack Obama said Sunday.

Bin Laden's death at a compound in Pakistan ended the world's most widely-watched manhunt, and jubilant crowds gathered outside the White House and at ground zero in New York as word spread late at night.

“Justice has been done,'' the President said.

The US State Department also put a worldwide alert shortly after President Barack Obama announced bin Laden's death in a military operation.

Obama said a small team of Americans killed bin Laden early Sunday in the town of Abbottabat, about 100 kilometres (62 miles) north of the capital Islamabad, U.S., Pakistani officials said. The team took custody of his remains and American officials said they were being handled in accordance with Islamic tradition.

Three adult males were also killed in Sunday's raid, including one of bin Laden's sons, whom officials did not name. One of bin Laden's sons, Hamza, is a senior member of al-Qaeda.

The death of the worlds's most-wanted man came just months before the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, orchestrated by bin Laden's al-Qaeda organization, that killed more than 3,000 people.

Former President George W. Bush, who was in office on the day of the attacks, issued a written statement hailing bin Laden's death as a momentous achievement.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,'' Bush said.

Largest number of airhostesses placements by Frankfinn enter in Limca Book of World Records

Largest number of airhostesses placements by Frankfinn enter in Limca Book of World Records

For long, the unquestioned rule for students in Kerala has been to try to get into a professional college and become a doctor or engineer.

But the trend is, mercifully, changing. Youngsters in Kerala are all set to fly high and accomplish their dreams, if the numbers trotted out by the Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training are to be believed.

The institute which boasts of an entry in the Limca Book of World Records for getting placements for the largest number of airhostesses, has found jobs for 665 students in the last financial year from Kerala alone, said Ajith Prasad, the regional head of the institute, at a press conference held in the city. “The highest salary which was offered to one of our students last year was Rs.15 lakh per annum,” he said.

It seems as though Kerala’s youth are now more open to New Age careers rather than stereotypical jobs. With so many girls aspiring to reach for the skies, it looks like the narrow path of offbeat career options has finally opened up.

Though we may have the picture of a highly sophisticated young woman in mind when we think of an airhostess, one doesn’t need an excellent academic record or speak Queen’s English to be trained as an airhostess, claim experts.

After the one-year training period — the selection criteria for which would include a minimum height and complexion analysis — all the sophistication and smartness would become one’s second nature, is what the institute promises.

Students who have finished their plus two can apply for diploma courses in airhostess training. PG diploma options are also available for those interested in joining the training after completing their degree.

Howard Berg - World's fastest reader

World's fastest reader , 2011 World's fastest reader, fastest reader in the world, Howard Berg photo, Howard Berg picture, Howard Berg fastest reader record, fastest reader Guinness world record,
Bookshelves and desk lamps brought serenity to Howard Berg. Not much else could growing up in the Brooklyn projects.

"I found the safest place in the neighborhood was the library," he said. "To this day, I don't think anyone's ever felt threatened by gangs in a library."

Gangs of bookworms, however, might feel intimidated by Berg's uncanny ability to peruse a book. The McKinney resident is the world's fastest reader.

Courtesy of Howard Berg

He is listed in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records for reading more than 25,000 words a minute. The average person reads 200 words a minute.

Berg's learning ability is also anything but average, and has been since his early days in New York.

"I made some good choices," he said. "I read at a college level in the sixth grade because I basically hung out in the library. It was the only place to play. I was surrounded by a lot of high-level books so I was reading at a pretty high level early."

By high level, he means analyzing the relativity theory at age 9. He means processing 3,000 words a minute by the time he got to college at the State University of New York, Binghamton.

Coincidentally, Berg gained an interest in college in the brain and how it works. He switched his major during his junior year from biology to psycho-biology, eager to learn the physiology of the nervous system and the brain's role in learning.

Berg completed a four-year psychology program in one year, a feat not even the school dean said was possible. Reading, analyzing and test-acing his doubters down, Berg had a revelation.

"It hit me that they don't teach you how to learn in school," he said. "They tell you what to learn and why to learn. They don't explain why you can remember the words to, 'I Shot the Sheriff,' or why you'd even want to.

"But when you read something you actually want to know, the next day you don't know who wrote the book and who was in it. So, I started learning about learning."

Berg moved to McKinney 14 years ago. He first came to the area when he appeared on "Good Morning Texas" as part of a national tour focused on his rare mental abilities.

New York --- his home --- had not appreciated, or perhaps understood those abilities. Berg worked in the city for 10 years, set on spreading his knowledge to kids who suffered through a push-them-along education system, that is, to those kids who even stayed in the system.

One school had a 2 percent graduation rate. The rest of the students either flunked or dropped out of the system. Berg volunteered to teach what he knew to the students who did stay in school, but the principal wouldn't have it.

"Kids in biology couldn't do the homework because they didn't know how to find the answers, so I was teaching them how using their bio book in their bio class," he said. "The principal said they weren't paying me to do that and wrote down that I wasn't doing my job because I was teaching kids how to do their homework and how to learn."

Berg said he couldn't help those unwilling to be helped.

"So I quit my job as a teacher to become an educator," he said. "I wasn't going to spend my life making kids dumber."

Berg has stayed true to his promise since the 1980s, when he began educating anyone who would listen. School and business success depended on their listening, he said.

"There's more printed in one week in the New York Times than a person in the 18th century learned their whole life," he said. "When you're trying to do well in school, you need to read faster than two hundred words a minute."

Berg had taken graduate courses in how to teach reading, and more importantly, he figured out what he did to reach insane speed reading milestones.

"I observed myself reading," he said. "I took a part of my mind that wasn't reading, and I observed myself, asking what I was doing now that's different than what someone else would be doing while reading this."

Some might find that a daunting task, but Berg came to a fairly simple, yet complex conclusion. He compared reading to cruising down a North Texas highway. Drivers read the road in four directions --- front, back, left and right --- while eyeing the speedometer and gas gauge, switching the radio and playing Words With Friends on their iPhone. Berg said their brains should explode, but multitasking comes easier.

People read a book 200 words a minute in one direction and barely remember what they read an hour later. Berg realized the disconnect.

"In a car, we see everything," he said. "In a book, it appears there's a little person in the back of our heads looking at a book through our eyes, and this little person reads one word at a time aloud. So, we're using our eyes to hear a book instead of to see a book."

Seeing the words as a visual process, instead of an auditory one. So knowing what to look for during that process, particularly when studying a textbook, will increase one's reading speed, Berg said.

"If you want to hit a target, you have to know what you're aiming at," Berg said. "Most people are clueless when they're given a book. They need to stop reading and start analyzing."

Teaching people how to analyze, and do it quickly, became Berg's mission. He organized his methods into a system, a program that even the youngest kids could use.

One student who used the program finished a four-year degree at Thomas Edison in six months. Another graduated with a 4.0 grade point average in economics from the University of Texas-Arlington. He was only 16.

"He taught math as a graduate student when he was 18," Berg said. "His biggest challenge was that he couldn't date students who were younger."

Berg's 9-year-old grandchild took his program and can read 750 words a minute.

Of course, others took notice, many doubting his seemingly unreal speed-reading madness. Dr. Kuni Beasley, founder of the former NEW American School and Gateway Preparatory School, saw about an infomercial about Berg's mega speed reading product. A speed reader himself, Beasley didn't believe Berg's claims.

Cycling world record 2011 set by Hitchin teachers

Cycling world record 2011 set by Hitchin teacher.

TWO teachers from a Hitchin school have returned to England with a world record under their belts after completing a charity cycle ride in memory of a former student who died from leukaemia.

Matthew Good and Chris Pope, teachers at Priory School, cycled nine countries in one week with friends Darren Daley and Szilvia Zsigmond.

Their aim was to raise money for CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA, in memory of former pupil Tasnim Kalam.

The quartet, who far surpassed their target of cycling the 584 mile course in nine days, also smashed the previous record of cycling seven countries in as many days.

They are currently awaiting formal confirmation from Guinness World Records after sending off evidence of their feat.

“It went really well, a lot better than we thought it would actually,” Mr Good told The Comet.

“We were cycling 85 to 90 miles a day, more than we thought we would be. We got to the eighth country after six days.

“We didn’t get one puncture at all throughout the whole journey and the weather was good apart from on one morning. It all went very smoothly.”

The group began the gruelling route in Italy, and finished in The Netherlands.

Their journey took them through all European countries including Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Cuban eyes world record with 268-foot cigar.

Havana—Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. But one Cuban man is hoping that a 268-foot (81.8-meter) super-stogie he rolled is something more: a world record.

Jose Castelar and his assistants started working on it at the end of April and finished Tuesday.

British diplomats were on hand to measure the cigar. It has yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.

Castelar already holds the Guinness mark for a 148-foot (45-meter) cigar he rolled in 2008.

World's largest avocado - Peruvian avocado enters Guinness World Record 2011

Twenty six pounds of olives, 33 pounds of eggs, 1100 pounds of avocado and a few other ingredients will combine Monday to create a giant salad for the XV National Avocado Festival. The salad is expected to feed the 4,000 attendees in the Luricocha district of the Ayacuchan province of Huanta.

Fifty women will prepare the salad today in the town's main square. Once prepared the salad will be displayed in a fountain so that visiting tourists can admire and consume the salad. Tomorrow the town celebrates the Festival of the Cross. Visitors can try typical fruits during a fair and visit other attractions during the festival.

The mayor of Luricocha, Edgar Sánchez Cruz, remembers the first festival the city held in 1996. He says the salad that year was prepared with the world's largest avocado, which was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Sánchez Cruz also says that Luricocha is the largest producer of avocados at the national level and has 23 varieties. The avocados from the region are exported to Spain, France, Canada, United States, Chile, Germany, Panama and Argentina.

LG Optimus 2X - First mobile phone with dual core processor enters Guinness World Records

LG has managed to coerce the venerable Guinness organisation into awarding it a World Record for being the first mobile phone to hit the market with a dual-core processor. They were even awarded a shiny certificate to record their ‘achievement’.

Now we didn’t count LG as Roy Castle and Norris McWhirter fans, but the South Korean giant is obviously desperate to prove they are out looking down on rivals in the processor speed race. They’ll also be equally keen to thumb their noses at their perennial Seoul-based rivals Samsung, who are soon to release their hugely capable Galaxy S 2 dual-core model in the UK.

The flagship Optimus 2X was released here last week at Carphone Warehouse and packs a blazing NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 4.0 Super AMOLED screen and an 8MP camera. The phone boasts Android 2.2, but with all that power at their disposal, new owners will also be hoping for a 2.3 Gingerbread boost in the coming months.

Most number of circumcised boys set World Record capital Manila Philippine

A city east of the Philippine capital Manila is trying to set a world record for the most number of circumcised boys on May 7. The city government of Marikina has announced its "Tule (Circumcision) Party" to highlight the event.

In a statement, the city government said the "Tule Party" would be held at the city sports complex and invites boys aged and up to undergo circumcision for free.

Traditionally, Filipino males undergo circumcision during the summer breaks (between April and May) at a cost ranging $30 to $100.

According the city health officer Alberto Herrera, the "party" would be held from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Qualified doctors will be conducting the surgery using modern medical facilities for the event, he added.

An estimated 1,500 boys are expected to participate in the event to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records list.
