Ahmad Amin Bodla sets highest martial arts kicks World Record

Ahmad Amin Bodla sets highest martial arts kicks World Record

LAHORE: Pakistani Ahmad Amin Bodla on Thursday claimed to have broken the world record for the most number of martial arts kicks in one hour.

Bodla, who attempted the record at Children Library Complex in Lahore, managed 6,370 kicks in one hour. He broke the previous record of 2,982 kicks held by Indian Jayanth Reddy in 21 minutes and 46 seconds.

He had invited Guinness Book of World Records officials, but they had asked for 4,600 pounds to officiate the record attempt. He then asked local officials to look over it.

Bodla will now send the attempt video to Guinness Book of World Records, which can take up to six to seven months to verify.

Last year in October, Bodla had his name to the Guinness Book of World Records for highest number of kicks in one minute. Bodla had set a new Guinness Book record for 225 martial kicks in one minute. That record was also held by an Indian, soldier Sarwar Khatri, with 187 kicks in 2007.

Dubai Metro - Longest driverless metro network in the world

The Dubai Metro is the longest driverless metro network in the world

The Dubai Metro has made it to the Guinness Book of World Records, as the longest driverless metro network in the world, spanning 74.695 kilometers, officials announced on Tuesday.

The record has been set taking into account the combined length of the metro's Green and Red Lines.

The achievement is an addition to the one already made by the Dubai Metro Red Line in September 2011, when it set a new record as the longest driverless metro line in the world at 52 km.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), received the Guinness Certificate from Talal Omar, Regional Director of Guinness Book of World Records in the Middle East, at the RTA headquarters on Monday.

Al Tayer dedicated the achievement to His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who is the driving force of the Dubai Metro project.

"The implementation of the Dubai Metro project is a true testament to the vision of Shaikh Mohammed in uplifting the infrastructure of Dubai. He has been closely monitoring and directing all phases of the work progress in the project, and endorsed the suitable route from several alternatives presented," he said.

"He envisioned using the metro as a backbone linking various parts of Dubai city enabling commuters smooth mobility while enjoying a panoramic view of the city's landmarks," he said.

Parts of the track have been selected to be underground and others elevated to support this vision and to suit the urban layout of Dubai.

Shaikh Mohammad aimed to make the Dubai Metro the best in the world, since its inception. Cutting-edge technology in the rail industry was used, including an air-conditioning system in stations and trains.

Limca Book of Records 2012 - Biggest rudraksha Shiva lingam

A 31-feet 'Shiva lingam' made up of over 20 lakh rudraksha beads was today unveiled at Kharvel village in Valsad district on the eve of Mahashivratri festival. Rudraksha beads are vertically lined using threads on a steel frame to construct the mammoth structure which has a base with a diameter of 16 feet. Building Shiv lingam is an initiative of one Batuk Vyas, a businessman from Dharampur taluka in South Gujarat and the workers collectively put thirty thousand man hours to construct it in six months.

Vyas claimed to have broken his own record of 25-feet rudraksha shiva lingam which was recorded in the Limca Book of Records (LBR) last year.

"This year we have built a 31-feet shiva lingam using over 20 lakh rudraksha beads. Last year, we had built rudraksha shiva lingam which was 25 feet tall and was recorded in the Limca book of records," he said. Vyas has been building such rudraksha shiva lingam since last 13 years.

A businessman Batuk Vyas from Dharamour Taluka in South Gujarat took the initiative to build Shiv lingam and the workers collectively put 30,000 man hours to construct it in six months. The rudraksha beads are vertically lined using threads on a steel frame to construct the mammoth structure which has a base with diameter of 16 ft.

World’s Largest Quran - Biggest Quran in the world

World’s Largest Quran Exhibited in Tatarstan

The world’s biggest Quran was presented in Kazan, the capital of the Russian republic of Tatarstan, on Thursday. At the presentation, the audience gasped with delight when the giant book in a stone-encrusted gold-and-silver frame cover was unveiled.

 The Quran arrived from Italy where best jewel makers worked for a year and a half on a folio that is destined to become yet another Muslim relic. Symbolically, the work was completed this year, proclaimed Year of the Russian and Italian Language and Culture. “I haven’t seen anything like that in my life!” Rishat Khamidullin, the press secretary of Tatarstan’s Muslim Spiritual Department, told the Voice of Russia:

 "This is the world’s biggest Quran. One is really impressed by its size – 1.5 m by 2 m, and 3 m by 2 m if unfolded. It weighs 800 kg. The 120-kg frame cover is tinseled with gold and silver and adorned with malachite, jasper and phianites. It’s a veritably unique book. The event is great importance not only for Tatarstan but for the entire country. The book will be at Kazan’s Qul Sharif mosque until next May, and then it will be transferred to the town of Bolgar where it will be put on public display at a local museum."

 Situated on the left bank of the Volga about 200 km south of Kazan, Bolgar is an important historical site where ancestors of modern Tatars adopted Islam as their state religion. The town is famous for its monuments. The Bulgar historical and architectural museum compound with its mosques, mausoleums and chambers dating from the 13th and 14th centuries is a candidate for UNESCO world heritage status.

 Another absolutely unique Quran, which has no analogues in the world, was created in Russia five years ago. This is a gold copy of the so-called Osman Quran. The 8th -century original is kept at the Institute of Oriental Studies in St. Petersburg. The 162 pages were embossed on gold leafs at the Moscow Mint. Some pages of the gold Quran were sent to Saudi Arabia and Egypt as a gift from Russia and as a sign of respect for all nations professing Islam.

World's largest bra chain

World's largest bra chain set World Records by kiwi Girl Guides in New Zealand

Girl Guides in the New Zealand town of Dargaville have put "Bra-gaville" on the map with an uplifting, record-breaking effort, stringing nearly 170,000 bras together.

The last brassiere was hooked to its neighbour late on Sunday night to create the chain of 169,324 supporting undergarments.

The chain, laid out in a zig-zag pattern at the town's Memorial Park, was about 135 kilometres long and breaks the previous world record of 166,625 bras set in Australia three years ago.

The project was part of Girl Guides New Zealand and the Breast Cancer Foundation's efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer.

It took two years to collect the bras, which were donated from across the country, Australia, Britain and the US.

About 100 Girl Guides took two days to connect the bras by their hooks and eyes.

Chain instigator Robyn Martinovich said she was happy but relieved the project was over.

She had seen enough bras to last her a lifetime, and so had her husband, she told AAP.

She had no idea where the suggestion of calling Dargaville "Bra-gaville" came from, but thought it was hilarious.

On Monday, they had already started dismantling the chain.

The best bras will be donated to women in the Pacific Islands and Africa.
Local politicians will verify the record, the details of which will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records.

World's longest dosa 2012

World's longest dosa set Guinness Book of World Records 2012

A team of more than 20 dosa masters joined hands today to make the world's longest dosa, measuring a serpentine 48.25 ft, which found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.


The record-breaking crew, led by renowned chef Damoranan, known as Dhamu, broke the previous record of the Vijayawada Hotel owners Association, who had made a 38.2 ft long dosa.

"We spread the longest ever dosa - Guinness dosa today," Damodaran, who was assisted by 20 dosa masters in the effort, said.

The feat was achieved as part of the food festival organised at the Tamukkam Ground here by the Madurai Rountable 14 in association with Ladder Commercial Solutions, a Chennai-based event management company, and with support from Madurai Hotels' Association.

The event was held to raise funds to support government schools and orphanages.

As part of the feat, a 61-ft dosa pan had been made and fitted to a special steel table. The weight of the pan was 900 kg, Satish Devadoss, one of the organisers, said.

The organisers started using the 61-ft dosa tawa by rolling out dosas for visitors yesterday. The final spread was done as per Guinness specifications. Officials from the Guinness Book of World records were present when the dosa was made, Devadoss said.

The burners for the huge dosa tawa were manufactured and brought from Chennai while three dosa tawas, each measuring 20 ft each, were fitted here. The total weight of infrastructure involved in the event including table and pan burner was 4,000 kg, Devadoss said.

The huge quantity of batter required to make the Guinness dosa, about 1,500 kg of it, was provided by Hotel Temple City.

Longest kiss World Record on Valentine’s Day 2012

Longest kiss World Record on Valentine’s Day 2012

A gay couple celebrated Valentine's Day by breaking the world record for the longest ever kiss after managing to keep their lips locked together for an incredible 50 hours, 25 minutes and one seconds.

Nontawat Jaroegenasornsin, 31, and his partner Thanakorn Sittiamthong, 28, beat the previous winners of the Guinness World Record longest continuous kiss today by just over four hours.

In a celebration of vitality and lasting power leading up to Valentine’s Day a male couple in Thailand this week broke the Guinness World Record for the longest kiss, staying lip locked for a massive 50 hours. In a fitting end to their journey the men finished their record breaking kiss on Valentine’s Day.

In order to break the record the men had to stand in a space of just one square meter and could only drink and eat through a straw. The two men also had to take bathroom breaks together and to ensure they remained lip locked a referee accompanied them to the toilet.

Not only did the two men manage to break the world record with their 50 hour kissing feat, they also won some very nice prices including a diamond ring worth approximately $3,200 and a hotel voucher said to be worth double the cost of the diamond ring.

Apparently gay male couples have a knack for breaking the world’s longest kissing record which was previously set during a 33 hour kiss between Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello while standing in front of a tent on the campus of New Jersey College.  The men said there goal was the ”Queering the Guiness Book of World Records.”

Why men are able to so easily break the world’s longest kissing record on a repeated basis I honestly have no idea, however I do quite thoroughly enjoy the fact that they likely made many gay-hating observers uncomfortable for a period that spanned more than two days.

World's smallest man 2012

A 72-year-old from Nepal has stepped forward in a bid to be crowned the world’s smallest man.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi is 56 centimetres (22 inches) tall and weighs just 12 kilos.

Mr Dangi considered his height a curse after a lifetime of being ridiculed by neighbours and laughed at in freakshows.

But life is set to change immeasurably for Mr Dangi, who lives alone in a remote valley in the Midwestern hills of the Jhapa district, if he is confirmed as the record holder.

He was encouraged to enter a late claim to the title by his family.

Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records have said they will fly out to Nepal to verify Mr Dangi’s claims.

He will need to be measured three times over the space of 24 hours to confirm his height.

The current record of world's smallest man is held by 18-year-old Filipino Junrey Balawing, who measures 59.93 centimetres.

The teenager hasn’t grown since he was one year old.

He claimed the title last year from Khagendra Thapa Magar, 18, who stands at 67 centimetres tall.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi - World’s shortest man 2012

Chandra Bahadur Dangi - World’s shortest man 2012

Chandra Bahadur Dangi, a 72-year-old Nepali who claims to be the world's shortest man at 56 centimeters (22 inches) tall.

Pilloried by neighbors, laughed at in freakshows and spurned by the women he admired from afar, Chandra Bahadur Dangi has always seen his tiny stature as a curse.

But the 72-year-old Nepali, who claims to stand at just 56 centimeters (22 inches), is on the brink of life change as significant as a lottery win as experts prepare to test his claim to be the shortest man in history.

Until now, Junrey Balawing from the Philippines has held the title of the world’s smallest living man with a height of 59.93 cm.

Guinness World Records experts confirmed last week they are to travel to Dangi’s village in the impoverished southwestern valleys of Dang district to measure the pensioner, who says he weighs just 12 kilos (26 pounds).

If his measurements prove correct, he would eclipse Balawing but would also be the shortest human adult ever documented, taking the accolade from India’s Gul Mohammed, who was measured at 57cm before he died in 1997 aged 40.

Dangi told AFP in his first interview with Western media that recognition at the end of his life would be some compensation for years of hardship he has had to endure.

“I think things will be better now. I hope that I will be famous all over the world,” Dangi said at a religious festival in Surunga, a town on the banks of the sacred Kankai river 280 kilometers (174 miles) southeast of Kathmandu.

“I want to visit foreign countries and meet people from around the world.”

The pensioner, who was orphaned at 12 and has five normal-sized brothers, says he has never experienced romance and is yet to find his soulmate.

“I was short since my childhood. So, I couldn’t find a woman to marry when I was young. Then I just gave up on the idea of marriage. At this old age, I’m not interested in marriage anymore.”

The cause of his stunted growth remains a mystery although many holders of the “world’s shortest man” crown have suffered from primordial dwarfism, a condition which begins to show signs in the womb.

Dangi says relatives would parade him as a freak at fetes and festivals when he was younger, refusing to share with him any of the cash they earned.

“They would treat me as a toy,” he told the Kathmandu-based Republica newspaper.

He was brought to the attention of the world last week after Nepali researchers looking into the history of the Dangi people were introduced to him.

“We walked for several hours and reached his home in Purandhara village. He was living with his 35-year-old nephew and his (nephew’s) family,” said Mohan Dangi, who led the expedition.

“We invited him to take part in our week-long religious ceremony. To us, it occurred that he could be world’s shortest man.”

Dangi, who scrapes a living weaving the “Naamlo”, a traditional jute band used for carrying heavy weights, has already become something of a celebrity in southern Nepal.

At the religious festival in Surunga he was smeared in vermilion powder — which can symbolise power, love or desire in Hindu culture — as fans queued to greet him, offer him flowers and have their pictures taken with him.

Dangi knows he may have to get used to the attention, as public life beckons.

Another Nepali, Khagendra Thapa Magar, held the record as the world’s shortest man for a year after being measured in 2010 at 67cm.

Magar made television appearances in Europe and the United States and was the official face of Nepal’s tourism campaign, which featured him as the smallest man in a country that is home to the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest.

World's oldest twins 2012 - Edith Ritchie and Evelyn

World's oldest twins 2012 - Edith Ritchie and Evelyn set Guinness World Records 2012

The world's oldest twins are a pair of 102-year-old Scottish sisters, Guinness World Records announced Tuesday.

Meet Edith Ritchie and Evelyn "Evie" Middleton. They were born on a farm near Newburgh, Scotland, on November 15, 1909. The sisters are fraternal twins but their mother always dressed them the same from an early age.

The women, who were born at a time when Mark Twain and Florence Nightingale were still alive, have always remained close and and currently live together in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Neither has ever left the U.K. to travel.

Evelyn had four children, 12 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren, while Edith had four children, nine grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and three-great-great grandchildren, according to Guinness.

What's the secret to their longevity? When asked, Edith said "Simple living, hard work and a good husband," according to a Guinness written statement.

Of course, other factors may have contributed.

"They've clearly benefitted from good genes, and a solid life-long friendship that only twins can truly understand," Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday said in the statement.

Nobody knows for sure what lead to the twins' impressive longevity, but research suggests happiness and family go a long way. A November 2011 British study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed happy people were 35 percent less likely to die an early death, HealthPop reported.

There have been speculations that Ritchie and Middleton are not the oldest twins since there have been reports of 107-year-old twins living in the Ukraine, however, the Metro.co.uk reported that the Scottish sisters’ claim is the only one verified by Guinness officials.

After leaving school, the sisters worked on farms before leaving to start their own families.

Evelyn married William Middleton and with him she had four children, twelve grandchildren, twenty-six great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren, reports The Huffington Post.

When MyFOXdc asked how she has been able to live such a healthy long life, Ritchie responded, “simple living, hard work and a good husband.”

Congratulations on your world record Evie and Edith!

World's strongest kid - Giuliano Stroe push-ups on Glass bottles

World's strongest kid - Giuliano Stroe push-ups on Glass bottles

Romanian muscle boy Giuliano Stroe stars in a hit viral video performing the incredible feat.

Balancing his hands and feet on bottle tops, the lad raises and lowers his body with abs-olute control.

Giuliano has become an internet sensation with his amazing shows of strength – garnering over 3MILLION hits on YouTube.

He already holds several Guinness World Records too, including titles for walking on his hands and performing the 'human flag'.

The cartoon-loving youngster, who lives in Romania with his parents, has trained from a baby.

Dad Iulian, 33, said: "He has been going to the gym since he was born. I have trained hard all my life and always take him with me.

"But he is never allowed to practise on his own. He is only a child and if he gets tired we go and play."

Giuliano, the oldest of four children, says his stardom has not gone to his head and he still enjoys normal kids' stuff like painting, watching cartoons and playing in the park when he is not weightlifting.

But it seems he has picked up a taste for fame - revealing he loves being filmed and that when people applaud it makes him happy.

Assam Police constable Abhijeet Baruah enters Guinness Book of Records

Assam Police constable Abhijeet Baruah enters Guinness Book of Records

Abhijit Boruah, an Assam police constable, on Tuesday set a new world record of the longest run barefoot by covering a distance of 156.2 km in 24 hours. He was conferred with a certificate from India Book of Records for his achievement. This category of records is new and Abhijit is the first one to set it.

In his quest for getting his name into the Guinness Book of World Records as the first man in the world to run 150 kilometres barefoot within 24 hours, 22-year-old Abhijit Boruah from Jorhat today came out with flying colours, covering 156.2 km within the stipulated time.

Abhijit ran the stipulated 150 km in 23 hours and 19 minutes. He started running from Tarajan Bypass approach yesterday at 3.56 pm and ended his run around the same time today at the same point.

BK Chandrasekhar Tiwari, the Indian observer for the Guinness Book of World Records who monitored the whole event, issued a certificate on behalf of the India Book of Records to Abhijit and handed it over formally to Jorhat MLA Rana Goswami, Jorhat Deputy Commissioner RC Jain and Jorhat SP Sanjukta Parashar at a press meet held in the conference hall of the DC at 5.30 pm today.

Abhijit has been admitted to the Jorhat Medical College and Hospital for a check-up after the ‘great run’. He told mediapersons that in future he would try to break his own record that he had created today.

The route that Abhijit took was marked every 100 metres in accordance with the guidelines of the world records body. He ran between the two points repeatedly to set the record.

The Indian observer for the Guinness Book of World Records said that the entire documentation and video and still photo recordings of the event would be sent to the London-based headquarters of the organisation, which, after detailed analysis and study, would decide on the inclusion of Abhijit’s name in the Guinness Book of World Records.
