Bangalore, Feb 9 (ANI): Gayathri Ashok of Bangalore attempted to make it to the Guinness Records by doing the bridal hairstyle in just 58 seconds.
Gayathri, who comes from a very modest background, aims to cash in on this aspect of Indian marriages on her road to fame.
It took just her 8.5 seconds to make a bun and four seconds to make a French style hair-do.
She managed to don the bridal look, complete with a sari, the traditional Indian drape, bridal hair-do, make up and jewellery in just 58 seconds.
"I come from a rural background. I used to see many television programs demonstrating how to get ready for a wedding. I learnt many things watching the television. My family and friends encouraged me to take it up as a hobby. Today, I am attempting a Guinness Book of World Records," said Gayathri.
The footage of the show has been sent to Guinness authorities. Gayathri said that if she makes a record, it would be a tribute to the modern woman.
Marriages in India are usually prolonged affairs and families spend months preparing for the day.
But changing socio-economic conditions have influenced middle-class to adopt liberal lifestyles and young adults are now trying to cut down on various cumbersome rituals and traditions. By Jaipal Sharma (ANI)
