Sanjay’s desire to convert a pencil lead into something creative has reached him into Asian Book of Records, when he carved ‘Lord Ganesha’ in three different postures on a pencil lead in 90 seconds flat. Although he has made into Asian Book of records, Sanjay’s burning desire is to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records, and he is willing to bide his time reaching there.

God has blessed him with this unique talent, which we are all proud of”.
Speaking to mangalorean.com, Sanjay said, ” Adding the trick of working the magic fast on the brittle lead is to remember how must of pressure that needs to be applied. While speed is of the essence, it is also a big task to ensure that lead does not break. While assurance was given by Indian and Asian Books of Records, that they will facilitate my Guinness authentication once they do so is also keeping my spirits up. It is not easy for those without deep pockets to make a Guinness attempt straight away. But I am still aspiring to make it into the Guinness records. That is my aim. “
