This year saw many Indians attempting and succeeding in breaking and making Guinness records across a wide variety of categories. It was only recently that hundreds of people in Chennai set the record for the most number of headstands at the Yoga World Festival. Earlier, a bunch of Bollywood celebrities like Jacqueline Fernandes and Kalki Koechlin were part of the largest group to hold an abdominal plank for a minute, to make a Guinness record of the most number of people to hold an abdominal plank at the same time.

In an inspiring story, UK British Sikh model-cum-campaigner sporting a six-inch-long facial hair on Thursday entered the Guinness World Records as the youngest female with a beard at just 24 years of age.

Now, a beautician from Gujarat’s Surat city has made a Guinness World Record for cutting the hair of 571 people without a break for 24 hours!
