Our pride, the Assamese Japi, makes a grand entry into the Guinness Book of World Records. The noted artist from Morigaon district, Subash Medhi, has made it possible by making the world's biggest Sarudaiya Japi. It took a long time of 3 years for Subash to complete the work. The Japi that has made it to the World Records is made with 1400 bamboos and 3000 palm leaves. It measures 545.965 square metres in total surface area and weighs approximately 10326.51 Kg.
Subash received the letter of inclusion by the authorities of the Guinness Book of World Records, London on 23rd June. During an interaction with the media, Subash mentioned how it brings him immense pleasure that his hard work has paid off. He also mentioned that it brought him joy to be able to create something which acted as a medium for bringing the culture and heritage of Assam to light more globally.
We extend our heartiest congratulations to Subash for making our beloved Japi shine extremely bright among the different heritages of the world. Bravo!
