Teacher was inspired by student to perform a feat

Vijay Pawbake, a resident of Vangaon in Dahanu, Maharashtra, teaches Class 6 students in a zilla parishad school. One day, he was inspired by his student who stood on his toes for 30 minutes. Pawbake realized he wanted to perform a feat and break a record and he managed to do so when he became the fastest person to arrange the letters of the English alphabet — the first Indian ever to hold the record.

The 31-year-old teacher entered the Guinness Book of World Records by clocking 28.45 seconds, beating the earlier record holder, Helen Strether of the United Kingdom, who had achieved the feat in 30.05 seconds. Explaining how he achieved the record, Pawbake said he had to arrange the alphabets with multi-colored magnet letters, which had to be fixed on a stencil board.
