Secures place in the Guinness Book of World Records
Amaravati: The Guinness World Records Committee informed the SRM University AP on Wednesday that the first year Electronics and Communication Engineering student of the university Tatineni Sreya has been awarded a place in its Book of World Records for painting the 588-sq.ft. canvas drawn with spices like turmeric powder and vermillion in a span of four hours and 15 minutes during the Tech Fest.
Coinciding with the valedictory session of a two-day Tech Fest in September 2019, hosted by the university on its campus, Sreya's feat was recorded in the presence of a panel of jury from Guinness to claim a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. The World Record title certificate will be issued soon.
Sreya, who created the painting of a little girl standing on a cliff and absorbing in the beauty of the rising sun, explains, "The painting is about a girl rejoicing freedom mimicking my emotion after I was done with my stressful high school days. While dealing with the pressure at school, I wanted to prove that zeal and passion can steer one to achieve monumental achievements."
Dr Sathyanarayanan, President of the University, Prof. Narayana Rao, Pro Vice-Chancellor, and Dr. D. Gunasekaran, Registrar congratulated Sreya for this successful attempt.
