A unique Guinness World Record will be attempted in Gujarat where 1500 people will participate in a sign language lesson class to be held at a single venue in Rajkot on June 28. The topic of the lesson will be our National Anthem Jana Gana Mana. The lesson will be delivered by qualified sign language teachers at Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Kalawad Road, of the city. All those who will attempt the record will also present their performance in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the next day.

The new record will be attempted a day before the Samajik Adhikarita Shivir, organised by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment at the same venue. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani will be present at the occasion.

It is worth a mention that the previous such record is held by neighbouring China with the participation of 978 people.

Another Guinness World Record is being attempted in the category with the highest number of Orthosis (Calipers) fitted to mobility impaired persons on a single day. Acceptance of request of this category is awaited from Guinness World Record authorities in London.
