Situated on the north bank of the river Tapti, Burhanpur, a mid-sized city of Madhya Pradesh, is famous for its Muslim monuments and Gurudwaras. But, this time it is not these historical and religious monuments which caught the excitement of the India Book of Records team. The attraction was the scheduled feat of patriotism to be performed by the people of this place on the occasion of the 64th Indian Independence Day. The attempt was the brainchild of Bharti Malviya of Shree Gurukripa Events.
Performing an attempt on mass participation is never an easy task. An excited India Book of Records adjudicator Sunita Dhote reached the city on January 26, 2013, just to have a glimpse of the patriotic attempt on such an auspicious occasion.
At 4: 00 pm, in the presence of Archana Chitnis, Minister of Education, school children, dignified guests and supporters, the attempt started with great enthusiasm. The resultant of the 4 minute record attempt was that a total of 580 people simultaneously danced to a patriotic song with great synchronization. Burhanpur had created a new record in the history of India Book of Records.
This attempt was the bookmark to an inaugural category as it had never been done in India Book of Records before.
Delivering such an attempt requires a lot of things- planning, co-ordination, courage, technique and most importantly proper support. It is never an easy task who does not put efforts at all. India Book of Records took the greatest pride in adding another shining record to its record book. Bharti Malviya chipped in with a new category for us and India Book of Records salutes his efforts. Congratulations to her for having successfully completed what she aimed at. But, it should be specially mentioned that the event would not have been as success as it was without the supporting hands of the supporters.
