Mahabubnagar: Mahabubnagar district administration set a new Guinness Record for the ‘Largest Seed Ball Sentence.’ At a special programme organised as part of the Green India Challenge at the Railway Community Hall, the district administration roped in a few students and made them arrange 73,918 seed balls to frame the largest sentence using seed balls.
The sentence framed was “Two crore seed balls made and planted by SHG women transform Mahabubnagar into Hetero Green Belt.” Earlier, the largest sentence was made using just 2,000 seed balls, confirmed Guinness Book of Records Adjudicator Rishinath. He said after thoroughly scrutinising the evidences including photos and video clips produced by the district administration, the record was announced and added that the certificates will be delivered shortly.
Excise Minister V Srinivas Goud, District Collector S Venkat Rao, Palamuru Zilla Mahila Samakya and others will be presented with the Guinness certificate. In addition to this, the Self Help Groups in the district had made a record 2.08 crore seed balls in 10 days surpassing their own record of 1.18 crore seed balls last year. These 2.08 seed balls would be scattered over different places in the district.
Apart from the active participation of the people in the ongoing Haritha Haram programme, records are being broken, besides attempts being made for new records by different organisations in the State. On July 4, Green India Challenge planted one million saplings in a day on the occasion of MLA Jogu Ramanna’s 58th birthday at Durga Nagar region in Adilabad district. The effort was appreciated by representatives of the Wonder Book of Records for successfully executing the task and were presented with a certificate.
The video recordings of this programme too have been sent to the Guinness Book of World Record for a place in the record book for the largest number of saplings planted in an hour. In both the record attempts at Adilabad and in Mahabubnagar, Green India Challenge founder and Rajya Sabha MP Joginipally Santosh Kumar participated.
In addition to these records, Green India Challenge is now gearing up to plant three crore saplings in an hour across the State on July 24 to mark Industries Minister KT Rama Rao’s birthday and set a new record. To this effect, Santosh Kumar has already released a brochure on ‘Mukkoti Vruksharchana,’ a special programme to plant three crore saplings in an hour on July 24 across the State.
“We took up Koti Vruksharchana in February early this year on the occasion of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s birthday and this is another attempt at a gift for Rama Rao through planting three crore saplings on his birthday” Santosh Kumar said. He appealed to the people to take part in the programme and do their bit for the environment.
