Supreme Court Advocate Radhakanta Tripathy enters Limca Book of Records

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.

He even moved the Election Commission, bringing to their notice that young children were being used to carry the ballot boxes, EVM machines etc.

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.

The ‘Aviva Great Wall of Education’ has earned its place in The Limca Book of Records 2011 for its debut year. The mega book donation drive collected 1,23,000 books for underprivileged children in 2009, has been recognized by the Limca Book of Records as a ‘huge wall of books’ in the country. Thousands of people from Delhi and NCR had donated their books over five days to help build the giant Wall of books.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Gaurav Rajput, Director Marketing, Aviva India said, “At Aviva, we recognize that Education is Insurance for a better future, and this is also the thought behind our Street to School programme.

We plan to expand the footprint of the Aviva Great Wall of Education so that we can reach out to more underprivileged children and contribute towards a better, stronger and educated India.”

The Aviva Great Wall of Education was launched by Aviva India as a part of its global charity initiative ‘Street to School’ on National Education Day - November 11 in Delhi in 2009. The drive culminated on November 16, when the Honourable Union Human Resource Development Minister, Shri Kapil Sibal presented 123,000 books to the NGO- Save the Children, India. These books impacted close to 1,70,000 underprivileged children in projects supported by the NGO.

The Wall attained greater heights in 2010, when it was taken to four cities- Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai, collecting close to 9,50,000 books.

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.
