Students of the Government-run Industrial Training Institute (ITI) here have achieved a big success for their magnificent creation out of wastes.
The ITIans have scripted history after a 70-feet-high scrap guitar registered a place in the Asia Book of Records.
With guidance by Principal Rajat Kumar Panigrahi and other teachers, about 150 students of five trades such as fitter, electrician, welder, turner and painter built the huge guitar from scraps, including various recyclable materials in just three months and 22 days.
Their unique sculpture was approved for the registration under the Grand Master Category of the Asia Book of Records.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has congratulated the students for their achievement.
“Congratulations to students of ITI Berhampur for their artistic creation, 70ft guitar from waste materials, entering into Asia Book Records. Happy to see our youth embrace such worthy causes to show their skills and shine on global platforms,” Patnaik wrote on Twitter.
