Magician rides into Guinness Book!

Another feather in his cap: Samala Venu performing his plume trick

Hyderabad’s magician Samala Venu has created a record of sorts. His feat of driving blindfolded on a two-wheeler for 3,186 kilometers through all the districts of Andhra Pradesh will soon enable him to ride into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The president of Rotary Club of Hyderabad, Mr. W.V. Kiran, has received a letter from Ms. Amanda Books correspondence editor of the Guinness Book of World Records that after publishing the entry into book, they would send a certificate to the magician by post. Mr. Samala Venu began his journey on December 24. Mr. Venu spread the message of national integration and donation of eyes on his long drive. His tour was organised by the Rotary Club.

Meanwhile, the Limca Book of Records has also recognised his feat and awarded him a certificate on May 8 for the longest distance covered blind-folded on a two-wheeler. The Limca Book of Records, on the same day, also recognised his feat of performing non-stop for 36 hours on September 7 and 8, 1991, involving 486 tricks without repetition.
