Puducherry, July 1 (UNI) A 24-year-old youth from Puducherry has gained entry into the Guinness Book of World Records by painting with his tongue a portrait of Mother Teresa on a 30X20 canvass in 12 days.
Talking to newspersons here today, the youth Rajendran said he was awarded the Guinness Book certificate two days back.
He said after drawing the outline with his tongue, he held the brush between his teeth and painted the picture in October 2007 and completed it in 12 days by working on it non-stop.
He dedicated this feat to Chief Minister N Rangasamy, who provided him Rs one lakh from his own account for the venture. He also recalled the names of others, who helped him to achieve the feat.
