Sri Lankan Tamil Mr.Mohanathas (Mohan) Sivanayakam broke the world record of Guinness by piercing 2020 Acupuncture needles on his head by himself. The previous record was made by a Chinese in 2009 by piercing 2011 needles. After watching that event he was very enthusiastic to break that record one day and he did it on December 3rd 2011 in Scarborough in front of many supporters, witnesses and the video recording. Dr. Paul Joseph was beside him and keeps on checking his heart beat often.
Mohan is 37 years old family man, from the village of “Moolaai” in Jaffna Sri Lanka currently living in Toronto, Canada. He is very ambitious from his young age to do some adventures and expose his hidden talent. When he was asked why did you choose this Acupuncher needle task, he replied the first thing I want to break that record, the second things is to proof to the public the well famous Chinese Acupuncture treatment for the sickness is very effective and risk free treatment. But people believe that’s hurt them and scared to get the treatment. But for sure they will change they mind after watching my video.
This is my second attempt to make Guinness world record. In 2005 I tried my first attempt by opened up a “Penny Restaurent”in Scarborough pasted the pennies all over wall. But unfortunately the Guinness authorities rejected it by saying that type of things is not in their category. Even though I didn’t give up my ambition and I did my second event successfully and I hope this will appear in the year of 2013 Guinness book. Still I want to try another record breaking event in three months time. I have already started to collect different kinds of “Mickey Mouse” products like dolls, toys etc. Already a California lady Janet Esteves made the record by displayed 2,760 products in 2008 and won “Memorabilia” award. I will collect more than her amount and exhibit in an indoor museum. So the children can visit comfortably during the winter time and enjoy the collection of “Mickey Mouse”. The entire Tamil community should be proud about Mr. Mohan’s great deal.
