In the United States, the Guinness World Records book is a favourite of 10 year-olds, but in India, Guinness records are the stuff of national headlines.

How do you stand out in a land with a billion people?
Radhakant Bajpai did it by growing his ear hair more than five inches long.
Vadivelu Karunakaren did it by skipping 16 km in 58 minutes. Arvind Morarbhai Pandya did it by running 1,500 km backward in 26 days and 7 hours. India is a land obsessed with superlatives, especially the kind that get you into the Guinness World Records book.
Here, a Guinness record is the stuff of national headlines. ''Orissa man claims a record for cracking open 72 coconuts by elbow!'' the Hindustan Times, trumpeted in August 2007.
''Uttar Pradesh boy can write on mustard seeds!'' said a headline in July 2007. The paper has run over 50 stories this year about bids for Guinness records, and it is by no means ahead of its competition.
And this just in from the Times of India: ''Man looks to set world record pulling vehicles with moustache.''
