Ludhiana, Apr 20 (ANI): A teacher in Ludhiana is trying to create a world record by playing tabla, a traditional percussion instrument, continuously for 301 hours.

Paramjot Singh has been practising tabla at Gurdwara Sri Dukh Niwaran Sahib for the last 14 days to boost his chances.

Singh said that it was his childhood dream to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

"When I was a child, I used to watch a serial Guinness Book of World Records. I must have been in the 3rd standard then. After watching this serial, I used to think that when these people can break the Guinness record why can't I register my name in Guinness. It was then I made up my mind that I would break Guinness record one day," said Singh.

Singh's wife Aminderpreet Kaur said that her family and the whole Sikh community were proud of him.

"We are feeling very good. Because of this record, the world is taking note of him. He has also made the Sikh religion very proud," said Aminderpreet.

The record of playing a percussion instrument non-stop for 301 hours belongs to Kujhalmannan G Ramkrishnana of Kerala, who played Mridang (another traditional south Indian instrument).

He created the record in August 2008. By Karan Kapoor (ANI)
