Students of Rajkot-based Kadvibai Virani Kanya Vidyalay (KVKV) attempted setting a unique record, when 1,200 pupils of the school rolled out 25,000 rotlis (chapatti) in just 8 minutes on Wednesday. The school is going to apply for getting this feat registered as a record shortly.
The hockey and basketball playgrounds of Kadvibai Virani Kanya Vidyalay (KVKV) were put to an altogether different use on Wednesday morning as
1,200 girl students made a strong pitch for entering the Limca Book of Records by making 25,000 chapattis in mere eight minutes. The feat is expected to be featured in the 2014 edition of the book.
Instead of sports persons it was the chefs who were out to display their
culinary skills in the playgrounds as hundreds of girls assembled to
make the record. KVKV is one of the oldest girls school in Saurashtra
region that was established in 1946 by freedom fighters in Rajkot.
"The event was spectacular. All the members of school management along
with the participants are happy and excited about the event. We will now
proceed to claim our record in the Limca Book of Records for this
event. We will send them the detailed video recordings, photographs and
other evidence to get the event registered," principal of KVKV Sonal
A total of 1,800 girls took part in the event out of
which 1200 girls were involved in chapatti making while the remaining
600 girls participated as volunteers.
"The event was supported by Rajkot Chamber of Commerce
and Industry (RCCI). We have taken care with regards to the hygiene
while carrying out the exercise. After the event was over, the chapattis
were distributed among patients in government hospitals and the poor in
the city with the help of Bolbala Charitable Trust,'' Shah said.
Each participant had brought 250 grams of flour from their home and some parents had donated ghee as well.
Each girl who participated in the event was given a certificate.
