Passionate about setting Guinness world records, a man got 366 flags tattooed on his body and had all his teeth removed so he could put nearly 500 drinking straws and more than 50 burning candles in his mouth.
Delhi born Har Prakash Rishi who called himself ‘Guinness Rishi’ claims to have set more than 20 records. Born in 1942, Rishi first entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 1990, when he rode a scooter for 1001 hours with two of his friends. The passion to get his name in the record book led him to perform some bizarre acts, including delivering a pizza from New Delhi to San Francisco and gulping a bottle of tomato ketchup in less than four minutes.
He is now getting images of global leaders tattooed on his body to add to images of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Barack Obama, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Mahatma Gandhi.
