Narendra Modi congratulated Sudarshan Pattnaik for Guiness Book of Records


Bhubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday congratulated Odisha-born world renowned sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik for registering his name in Guinness Book of Records by creating world’s tallest sandcastle on Puri sea beach on February 10.

Modi praised Patnaik in New Delhi where the latter presented a photograph of the 14.84 metres (48 ft. 8 inches) tall sandcastle.

It may be noted that, Sudarshan and his 45 students had taken nine days to carve the sandcastle.

By creating this, Patnaik had broken the previous world record of tallest sandcastle, which was 13.97 m (45 ft 10.25 in) tall created by Ted Siebert (USA) in Virginia Key Beach, Miami, Florida, USA, on 27 October, 2015.
