Singrauli, formerly Shringavali, is a town in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is emerging as the Energy Capital of India at a very fast rate. An excited India Book of Records adjudicator reached the town on April 13, 2013 just to have a glimpse of the beautiful record attempt which was scheduled to happen on April 14, 2013. The people of Singrauli wanted to spread a message to all the Indians to try and save the dangerously decreasing rate of girl child.
Manickam Selvendran (Collector and District Magistrate, Singrauli) in association with Sheela Foundation and Northern Coalfields Ltd., organized an event wherein one 2,46,095 sq. ft rangoli was created to spread the sensitive message ‘ save the girl child’, on April 14, 2013, at the NCL stadium Jhingurdah, Singrauli. A total of 1,500 students from all across Singrauli came together to create the massive rangoli in just 2 hours and 30 minutes, starting at 7 am and ending at 9:30 am. The nomination of the event was made by Chhavi Bhardwaj IAS, Commissioner Muncipal Singraul
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 for those who do not put efforts at all. India Book of Records took the greatest pride in adding another shining record to its book. The people of Singauli chipped in with a beautiful record for us and India Book of Records salutes their efforts. Congratulations to them for having successfully completed what they aimed at.
