When you’re born in a cinema hall, it is highly likely that destiny has something out of the way stored for you. Therefore, when this man set his first world record of riding a scooter for straight 1,001 hours in 1990, he knew what he’d be doing for the rest of his life – set world records!
Har Parkash Rishi, 74, addresses himself by a different name now – Guinness Rishi, and he has every reason to do so. With 20 world records set to his name, he’s is one of the coolest old timers that you could ever come across.
In the years to come, Rishi set several bizarre World Records that include delivering pizza from New Delhi to San Francisco and gulping down a bottle of ketchup in less than four minutes. His passion for setting World Records also got his wife, Bimla, included who wrote the world’s shortest will: “All to son” – crisp isn’t it?
While some of us are still pondering over the design of our first tattoo, Guinness Rishi already has 500 tattoos all over his body and he shows no signs of stopping.
Already inked with tattoos of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Barack Obama, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Mahatma Gandhi on his body, Rishi is getting more global leaders to be embedded in his skin forever.
However, getting more than 500 tattoos had not been his toughest stunt. The crazy is yet to come…
Although, Rishi has several wacky World Records to his name, one of the strangest stunts he has ever pulled was the record of holding 496 straws in his mouth. You won’t believe what he did to achieve the record – He removed every tooth from his mouth to make space!
