Chennai, Sep 1 (ANI): Unlike other artists who use big canvases to portray their work of art, Mani, a Chennai based uses a single rice grain and a mustard seed to write as many as 550 miniature alphabets.

He claims to have written 550 miniature letters on a single rice grain, three chapters of a Tamil poem named 'Thirukkural' on a mustard seed.

"I have written 550 letters on a single rice grain and three chapters of 'Thirukkural' on a mustard seed till now. I want to write 350 letters on a single strand of hair of one inch. Yet I would like to write all the 133 chapters of 'Thirukkural' on an inch of hair and one 'Thirukkural' chapter on each mustard, which will be completed in a year's time. I have planned to enter into the Guinness book of world records by writing about the life history of former president A P J Abdul Kalam," he said.

Mani believes that one has to struggle in life to be successful and admits that it took lot of time for him to write 550 letters on a rice grain and lines from the 'Thirukkural' on one mustard seed.

In future, Mani wishes to write national songs of hundred countries and the text of the Bhagwat Gita, the Quran and the Holy Bible on a strand of hair. (ANI)
