Chennai, Sep 2: A 16-year-old girl in Chennai attempted to get her name registered in Guinness book of world records by pulling five vans with her teeth.
Apsara, a student of Vellamal School, participated in the event called '99999 lights out' jointly organised by her school and Exnora international, a non profit organisation working on global warming related issues in her school premises. The girl dared to drag five vans with her teeth covering a distance of almost ten meters. Apsara though happy about her performance was more concerned about the global warming that is slowly engulfing mother earth.
"I attempted this record to launch 99999, which is to spread awareness about global warming. Global warming is a very serious threat to our world. I made this record mainly to enter the Guinness book of world records," said Apsara.
'99999 lights out' is a unique campaign that has been started by Exnora international.
The campaign aims to persuade the masses to turn off the lights for 9 minutes at 9 p.m. on the 9th day of the 9th month (September) of the 9th year (2009) of this millennium on their own accord. By Jai Kumar
