In an interview Mr. Surendra confessed that he wanted to do something very unique and so he started reading records in the Guinness Book. He has written 1749 characters on a single grain, 249 characters on a human hair and a long speech on a small postal stamp.

He works at the Jaipur branch of the Archeological Survey of India in Rajasthan. His first record of writing was on a rice grain where he wrote 638 characters.



He broke his first record by again writing 1,136 characters on a single rice grain and for his 3 miniature writing he wrote names of 168 countries and regions on a single grain of rice again breaking his own world record!

His record has been unbroken for the past 25 years. He has mastered the art of miniature writing and has written three speeches given by Jawaharlal Nehru on postal stamps. Now he aims to write the Bhagavad Gita or the Quran in an area less than 1 millimeter!

When asked the secret of this masterful writing he confessed that he does yoga every day and can also hold his breath for 2 mins! This man has made India proud not once or twice but 7 times!
