Indians are obsessed with getting into the Guiness Book of World Records. They do the most absurd things to achieve this, and they succed. Last night on TV, a man broke 200 coconuts in two minutes with his elbow. R says the Guinness Book should be renamed the Ganesh Book of World Records.

I'm hopeless at breaking coconuts. I ask the shopkeeper to do it for me. He takes it outside and cracks it open on the pavement!

I think so too. Does no one else in the world know about the existence of this Guiness Book of World Records or do they simply not care?

In Kerala, there is something called Pandeerayiram where one person breaks 5,000 coconuts consecutively. It is very intriguing. It is discussed here-
