The 21.33 metre (70 feet) tall guitar created from scrap waste by Industrial Training Institute, Berhampur, students has found its place in Limca Book of Records as India’s tallest scrap-metal structure.
Work on this guitar began on July 17, 2019 and it was completed within three months by a group of 120 ITI students, all of them who underwent training as plumbers, welders, fitters, electricians and painters.
The guitar adorns the façade of the ITI Scrap Sculpture Museum in Berhampur, along with 10 other small sculptures, all created from waste.
Dr Rajat Kumar Panigrahy, director of ITI, Berhampur, known as ‘Odisha’s Scrap Man’, said, the ‘Best Out of Waste’ mission seeks to integrate skill development imparted to ITI students, with waste management in an eco-friendly manner.
