DAHANU MAN ENTERS GUINNESS FOR FASTEST TIME TO ARRANGE THE ALPHABET
A 31 year old teacher of a Dahanu Zilla Parishad (ZP) school has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the "fastest time to arrange the alphabet." The teacher arranged the alphabet in a record time of 28.45 seconds and the earlier record was held by Helen Strether of United Kingdom which she achieved in 30.05 seconds, and now the Dahanu teacher holds the new record.
Vijay Pawbake (31,pictured) a resident of Vangaon in Dahanu teaches Std VI students in a ZP government school in Govane village, in Dahanu. Pawbake performed the feat during the Diwali vacation on 6 November 2017, in his village in Sangamner, Ahmednagar district. I was inspired by my student,Karan Khanloda who studies in my school, he had recently stood on both of his toes for 30 minutes, continuously and that made me think to arrange the alphabet feat,said Pawbake.
I contacted Guinness Records, UK and they sent me the registration details after I decided to achieve my feat,said Pawbake. The Guinness Records officials are very particular, and they sent me a long list of dos and don'ts, and also told me to submit the details like time keepers certificate, witnesses' certificates, video recordings of my feat, and other details, which I agreed and the Guinness people told me to contact them with the details,he said.
Explaining the feat, Pawbake said he had to arrange the alphabets which had multi coloured magnet letters to be fixed on stenciled board. Mind well, the magnetic letters have to be permanently fixed inside the stenciled board and any lousy job will not be calculated,said Pawbake.
I roped in my wife, Sarla and mother as my witnesses, brothers Akshay and Shubham as the videographers, their wives, Lata and Archana as the timekeepers, as per the guidelines asked by Guinness authorities, said Pawbake. I chose the Diwali vacation as the perfect time to perform the feat and after several dry runs, on 6 November 2017, I decided to record the feat in my Sangamner village,he said.
It was sheer joy when I clocked 28.45 seconds and after verification, I send the details to the Guinness authorities with a check list, and on 21 December 2017, I received a mailfrom the Guinness Records, accepting my record feat and they have posted my feat on their official website also, which any netizen can see at the click of the button,said Pawbake.
Pawbake is the first Indian to enter the Guinness records for being the fastest man on earth to arrange the alphabet in 28.45 se, where earlier, a Britisher, Helen Strether of had held the previous record of being the fastest in 30.05 sec.
