Yash Patel - Most number of cartwheels in a minute enters Limca Book of Records

Yash Patel - Most number of cartwheels in a minute enters Limca Book of Records

If you ask 9-year-old Yash Patel to point out Brazil on a map of the world, the chances are that he will fumble. But on March 15, this wonder kid from Gujarat's capital broke the Guinness record for the most number of cartwheels in a minute, a record held till then by a Brazilian. And, on Saturday, Yash received a certificate with a medal from Guinness World Records for his extraordinary feat.

Yash's record-breaking act took place at a reality show in Mumbai on March 15 this year. With 63 complete cartwheels in 60 seconds, he broke the record of 55 cartwheels in a minute held by the Brazilian.

The nine-year-old comes from a humble background. His father is a commando deployed with Chief Minister Narendra Modi's security. "I am extremely thrilled that my son has achieved this remarkable feat at such a young age," an elated Bach Patel told DNA.

While Yash's father is bound by duty to stay in Gandhinagar, his native village in Kos, Surat, is planning a grand celebration. "We will take out a grand procession, complete with fireworks and a special band, once his father returns. Sweets will be distributed to every household," said his uncle, Suresh Patel on phone from Surat.

Yash's family was the first to notice his extraordinary skill. "While young kids either walk slowly or even crawl, Yash would cartwheel from one room to another. He used to do it all day and that's when his parents realised that their kid had a special talent," said Kuleen Patel who is now looking after Yash's progress in gymnastics.

Too innocent to understand the hullabaloo around him, Yash, who studies in Standard IV at Kadi Prathmik School, Gandhinagar, wants to show his medal and certificate to his friends when the school reopens. "I love doing cartwheels and I want to learn other tricks of gymnastics. I will show the medal to my teachers and friends when I go back to Gandhinagar," he said shyly.

Yash had also received praise from the chief minister after he completed 445 cartwheels in 15 minutes and entered the Limca Book of Records. Now with the Guinness World Record in his kitty, his aim is to win medals for the country at gymnastics events."For the past one year, he has been training at SAI centre in Gandhinagar. We hope to find a sponsor for him so that he can train professionally and get awards for his talent."

Siddaraju Siddappa - Husking nine coconuts in three minutes set Guinness World Record

Siddaraju Siddappa - Husking nine coconuts in three minutes set Guinness World Record

It all started when he was just 14 and took it upon himself the challenge of husking coconuts with his teeth while playing with other kids. Today, Siddaraju Siddappa holds the Guinness World Record of husking nine coconuts in three minutes. Siddaraju, just back from Italy, can’t stop gushing about the recent title added to his name. He said his six-day stay in Italy for the record ceremony was a wonderful experience for him, something that he will cherish forever. “It felt good to see the Indian fl ag there after I broke the record,” he reminisced.

His last record was the fastest time to husk a coconut using the teeth in 28.06 seconds. He husked a coconut measuring 78 cm in circumference and weighing 4.744 kg at the Ravindra Kalashetra on March 30, 2003. His name has also been recorded in the Limca Book of Records for husking 15 coconuts in five minutes in the year 2002.

According to Siddaraju, strong teeth and strength are the only two things needed to break such records.

Teeth, he said, are genetic and for strength, he works out at the gym every day for at least an hour.

“That’s just to build stamina.

There is no particular exercise regimen I follow.

As they say, practice makes a man perfect,” he said.

Siddaraju, who also works as a government employee, added, “I’m proud to be an Indian and it’s my way of offering a salute to this country. If I wanted money, I could have joined the entertainment industry.

I’m happy with my government job and of course — the coconuts.” His next record will be to husk 12 coconuts in three minutes, which he hopes to break in 2012.
