    Longest title of a book with 1022 words

    Coimbatore (PTI): Seeking an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records, a college principal on Monday released a book with the longest title of "1022 words with 4805 characters and no space."

    Dr Subramonian, Principal, Dr R V Arts and Science College, Karamadai, about 25 km. from here, has written a book about Daniel Radcliffe, the young actor, who gave life to J K Rowling's character Harry Potter.

    The book is the first one in the world written by an Indian author about a Hollywood actor, Subramonian told PTI.

    The book contains 3D pictures from the movie, which can be viewed with the help of an anaglyph glass supplied free with the book, he said.

    The Guinness authorities have sent him a letter permitting to attempt for a World record in a new category, he said.

    Subramonian, however, was worried about the huge expenses to achieve these records. He had sought assistance from "Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's cell" in January last and has received an acceptance letter in September, Subramonian said.

    Subramonian already has two records to his credit, one a national record for continuous teaching for 61 hours 35 minutes and the second a Guinness record of teaching 1,934 students online at 16 centres worldwide.
