KOZHIKODE: The art of henna, or mehndi design, has recently grown from a passion to an attractive profession. But entering the Guinness Book of World Records with the art form may never have been on the minds of mehndi artists in the state. Until now.

Adithya Nidhin (25), a resident of Kadalundi in Kozhikode, set a record for the most mehndi designs drawn on people’s hands – 910 – in an hour. She did this at an event organized exclusively for her, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the CMHS grounds in Kadalundi on New Years Day.

To the amazement of the crowd on site, Adithya broke the record in the 37th minute. Former record holder Samina Hussain had drawn mehndi designs on 600 needles in an hour in the UK. “I got interested in mehndi art from a young age and wanted to do something big in it,” Adithya said.

“I started to search the internet if there was any competition in mehndi. Luckily I came across reports about record holders. I decided not only to do what the previous record holder had done. , but I worked to improve it. I was impressed when I reached the place, which was crowded with people from my town. My husband, Nidhin, then gave me the motivation and encouragement to attempting the world record, ”said Adithya.

The most essential thing is time, says Adithya

The whole process took place in the presence of eminent judges and witnesses, with two video cameras scrutinizing the activity on each person’s hand. “But the most important thing is the time, and the timekeepers who watched my time throughout the show announced the timing from time to time,” she said.

Reports provided by the judges of the event, video recorded under Guinness World Records rules, as well as photos and reports, will be sent to Guinness officials. Adithya had already painted the seven wonders of the world in 12 minutes with mehndi to enter the Asian Book of Records and the Indian Book of Records.
