Dehradun professor sets world record
Dehradun: A professor of a city-based deemed university set a world record on Thursday by delivering a marathon non-stop lecture for more than 130 hours at the varsity auditorium.
26-year-old Arvind Mishra, an assistant professor at Dehradun`s Graphic Era University where he teaches Mechanical Engineering completed 130 hours of his lecture at 4 pm this evening, surpassing the world record of non-stop lecture which stood in the name of a Polish teacher who delivered a lecture for 121 hours in 2009, HoD of the University`s Media and Mass Com department Subhash Gupta said.
The young professor is still going on as he wants to set a wide margin between his record and that of the Polish teacher Errol Muzawazi whose feat of 121-hour non-stop teaching still adorns the pages of Guinness Book of World Records, Gupta said.
A panel of the Guinness Book of World Records is also keeping an eye through live streaming on the marathon lecture being held by Mishra at the University`s MBA auditorium to a mixed audience of students and teachers.
The university`s chairman Kamal Ghanshala has announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh and two out-of-turn promotions for the assistant professor for his rare feat.
