The Limca Book of Records is similar to the Guinness Book of World Records, except it focuses on Indian achievements. Since its first printing in 1990, the Limca Book of Records has been celebrating the excellence of the Indian culture. In addition to featuring records in the book, Limca also honors People of the Year for their individual achievements. This book does more than simply feature records; it encourages others to break the records. Do you have what it takes to make the book?

Choose a record to break or set. Be creative, the more extraordinary the accomplishment, the more likely it is to be featured in the book. Don't limit yourself to what is already in the book, you may also be featured in the book by being the first person to do something.
