[From BBC[^]

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, India ranks third behind the USA and the UK in the number of records claimed each year. But this leaves out the large number of often bizarre and obscure record claims that never make it to the Guinness Book, but that are compiled in similar local compendiums such as the Limca Book of Records and the India Book of Records.

The records include:
  • the longest garland made of cakes of cattle dung (2 km)
  • performing yoga on horseback (10 hours)
  • lighting electric bulbs by passing a wire through one's nose and out of one's mouth (30 sixty-watt bulbs) OMG | :OMG:

In 2007, a 15-year-old boy, under the watchful eye of his doctor parents, performed a caesarean section in a hospital in Tamil Nadu, in an attempt to be recognised as the world's youngest surgeon. Unsurprisingly, the police and the medical authorities took a dim view of this particular attempt on a world record.
