Arman’s 10.39-metre Selfie in Guinness Book!
Manipal: Armaan Soorinje (20), son of Muhammad-Rehana couple from Hampankatta, Mangaluru and a student of third year and sixth semester in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Manipal Institute of Technology here, has soared to new heights.
He had recently demonstrated his creation, a 10.39-metre-long selfie stick, in the tenth block of the college campus in the presence of dignitaries on April 11 this year with a view to entering the Guinness Book of Records.
The event was videographed and the requisite evidence was submitted to the Guinness authorities. They have accredited the achievement and sent him a certificate. His feat will find an entry in the forthcoming edition of the record book.
The record is currently held by Hollywood actor Ben Stiller for his 8.56-metre selfie stick.
