Azamgarh, Mar 7 : Aspiring to be named in Guinness Book of World Records, Ansar Sheikh, a hairdresser in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh attempted a unique feat of non-stop haircutting holding the scissors with his mouth.
In his unique endeavour, 41-year-old Ansar Sheikh started cutting hair by holding the scissors with his mouth for 24 hours from 7 pm on March 1 to 7 pm on March 2, no doubt with small breaks for food and water.
People came to see Ansar perform the feat even from far off places. Mohammed Tariq Hashmi was one of them.
Ansar is hopeful that his hard work would bear fruit and get him into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Ansar Sheikh said, "If I'm successful in this attempt by the grace of God, then I willpen a training centre in Azamgarh District to impart free hair cutting training to visually challenged people and we will give them a certificate stating that they are trained as hair stylists."
