AWESOME: What a feat! PM Modi's birthday events set three Guinness World Records

Navsari (Gujarat): Good news for PM Modi fans! Three events organised on the occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 66th birthday on Saturday in his home state have set Guinness World Records.

While one record of most persons (989) lighting earthen lamps within 30 seconds was set on Friday evening, another two feats were achieved today in the presence of PM Modi.

All the three events were held at the same venue in Navsari in South Gujarat.

Today's records are: 1,000 differently-abled persons making a formation on wheelchairs at a single venue creating the largest wheelchair logo; and 1,700 deaf persons being distributed 3,400 hearing aid machines at one place.

"We have broken three world records here. The records were made in the presence of representatives of the Guinness World Records," Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot said while addressing people at Navsari in the presence of PM Modi.

"Yesterday, on the eve of Prime Minister's birthday, 1,002 children tried to light diyas (earthern lamps) within 30 seconds, out of which 989 persons lighted lamps in 30 seconds and made a world record," he said.

Setting another world record, 1,000 differently-abled persons ('divyangs') made a formation on wheelchairs at a single venue and created the largest wheelchair logo. Earlier, the Guinness World Records had recognised 346 differently- abled persons making wheelchair formation in 2010, he said.

"1,000 persons on wheel-chair dressed in saffron and white clothes, arranged in a formation created a logo 'Happy Birthday PM'. The Guinness team announced this to be a world record," he said.

Third, 1,700 hearing-impaired persons were distributed 3,400 hearing aid machines, and this has also found a place in the world record, Gehlot said.
