A college principal in a Coimbatore college has authored a book having a title written in 1,022 words containing 4,805 characters without a space!
The book written on Daniel Radcliffe, the man best known for playing school-aged wizard Harry Potter in each of the first five films based on the best-selling Harry Potter book series, is claimed to be the first ever book on a Hollywood character by an Indian.
Speaking on the book release function on Monday, Dr. Subramonian, the writer and Principal of Dr. R V. Arts and Science College in Karamadai, 25 kilometres from Coimbatore, claimed that his book had the longest title ever known.
"We have created a record in Dr. R. V. Arts and Science College, Karamadai. I have written a book with the longest title containing 1,022 words. This is the longest ever title written for a book like this," claimed Subramonian.
The 123-page book has an eight-pager pull out containing 3-D pictures from the movie that can be viewed with anaglyph glass that comes free with the book.
The title of the book that begins with 'Daniel Radcliffe the story of the not so ordinary boy chosen from .......' and ends with 'to his ever royal crown of fame' even doesn't have even a single punctuation mark.
Subramonian later said that the Guinness Book of World Record authorities in London have confirmed to him over telephone that no record of such sort had ever been made.
Subramonian said that it was his daughter, a Daniel Radcliffe fan, who motivated him to write the book that also has the distinction of being the first ever book written by an Indian on a Hollywood actor.
He said his objective was to develop reading habits among the younger generation and thus selected such a topic.
"He (Daniel Radcliffe) is a motivator; a young motivator for the young and old alike. That is why I have selected him," said Subramonian.
In 1996, Subramonian registered himself with the Guinness Book of World Record for teaching 1, 934 students online at 16 centres worldwide. (ANI)
