In India’s eastern state of Orissa, Keshab Swain of Bhubaneswar city, broke the Limca Record for breaking 250 green coconuts with his elbow within a period of 8 minutes and 58 seconds. Oddly, he broke his own record which was set back in 2007, when he smashed 147 green coconuts in 7.16 minutes.

Swain’s amazing feat in which he uses his elbow and forehead to do the job, attracted a large number of spectators who came to watch him perform.

“Today in 8 minutes and 56 seconds, I broke 250 green coconuts and this is a biggest record and nobody has made such record in the world. I believe that if I would get a chance further then I will break 300 coconuts,” said Keshab proudly.

Always looking ahead, his next goal is to create a new world record that will allow him to register in the Guinness Book of World Records, which is the ultimate honor for those seeking to break records of any kind.

In keeping with that old adage about lemons and lemonade, Keshab is a living parable, as personal poverty forced him to develop skill in plucking coconuts. Cracking them open quickly soon became a passion and an ability he developed over years of practice.
