India Book of Records Achiever wins National Accolade from the President of India
When ordinary people attain extraordinary feats at India Book of Records, it is a matter of great pride. However, when such an extraordinary individual, already certified by IBR, receives accolades from none other than the highest authority of the land, the President of India, it automatically becomes a matter of honour for IBR too. Such was the case of visually challenged achiever, Jyothi K (born on February 21, 2001) of Tamil Nadu, India, an achiever of both India Book of Records and Asia Book of Records’ Medals and Certificates. The Honorable President acclaimed her with Outstanding Performance as Role Model Among Persons with Disabilities in the Category of Multiple Disabilities at an award function held in Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on December 3rd, 2021.
Jyothi’s record with IBR included singing all the 1330 Thirukkurals in 3 hours and 38 seconds while playing the keyboard simultaneously. The year’s Independence Day Celebrations on August 15, 2021 shone forth with her piety and reverberated the atmosphere with her soulful voice. She also played 40 songs on the Violin and sang 7 Bharathiyar songs while playing the keyboard. The record-holders with India Book of Records go not just higher but even attain the highest distinction, from the President of India himself.
