Speaking to the Covai Post after the event, a member of the Rotary Club of Peramballur New Gen said the earlier Guinness Record for the same was created by 15,525 students in 2005. “We have now sent our request for officially being recognized by the Guinness World Records. We are positive we will find a place in the Guinness World Records.” he added.
