Chikka Bhanu Prakash - Heaviest weight lifted by a fingernail enter Guinness World Records

Limca Book of record holder Chikka Bhanu Prakash hoping for Guinness World Record

A software engineer from the city, 26-year-old Chikka Bhanu Prakash entered the Guinness Book of Records on Sunday for the heaviest weight lifted by a fingernail.

The string broke off and the first attempt went wrong. Though visibly nervous, the 26-year-old marshalled his resolve and with his thumb nail tried again, pulling off a feat which he hopes would fetch him a Guinness World Record.

Chikka Bhanu Prakash, a software engineer on Sunday afternoon lifted 8.668 kgs weight with his left thumb nail and the effort would be sent to the Guinness World Record for appropriate documentation.

According to Prakash, the ‘Heaviest Weight Lifted By Fingernail' was in the open record category with Guinness Records and it meant there was no previous record documented. “I will be sending this record for documentation and hope it will be accepted,” said the MCA graduate presently employed with Innobox Systems.

V. Sreenathachary, a triple Guinness World Record holder himself, acted as witness and guided the event to ensure all the prescribed steps were in place for making the claim. “In this category, the weight should be lifted using nail at least to 10 cms from ground and held thus for five seconds,” he said.

Today at the event organised by the Greater Hyderabad Padmashali Sangham, Prakash who hails from Jablekpally village of Bhudan Pochampally, lifted 8.688 kgs weight till 26 cms from the ground and held it for 28 seconds.

“This is a record and with appropriate documentation, the effort will be forwarded for consideration,” Dr. Sreenathachary said. For the purpose of creating a record, a hole was drilled into the thumb nail and a string was used to tie the weights and lift them.

Born in a weaver's family, Prakash had already made it to the Limca Records for his work in nail art and also tried his nail for lifting weights at his native Bhudan Pochampally and also in Jaipur once. “But today, I followed the guidelines for an entry into Guinness Records and feel elated at having succeeded,” he added.
