More than 900 students of Mount Carmel College created a Guinness world record for opening the most number of softdrink cans simultaneously at their annual ‘Cul-Ah 2016’ fest on Friday.
They broke the previous record created by Ltd CidoGrupa (Latvia) in Ligatne, Latvia, on August 2, 2014, involving 689 people. Representatives of the Guinness World Records, who were present on the occasion, validated the new world record and an official certificate will be issued in a week, said a release.
Niveditha Umesh, general secretary, Students’ Union, Mount Carmel College, said, “We at Mount Carmel College always look for something different in whatever we do and that has been our key differentiator. We are happy to partner with TWISS to set this new record. We hope to become the first college in India to take away this kind of Guinness World Record honour. Cul-Ah, our annual cultural fest, is the right platform for this.”
