  Largest Pen - world record set by M.S. Acharya
  SUNKET, Nizamabad, India -- Social studies teacher M.S. Acharya, 50, commissioned the construction of a 40-kg, 16-foot-tall, 1-foot-wide brass pen that he calls "Bharatiya Pali," or "India's Pen," to honor the government's passage of the Right to Education law - setting the new world record for the Largest Pen.

   The work of making the World's Largest Pen was done by two Hyderabad artists, Ratnam and Malikarajan, who etched various Indian dance styles and musical instruments all over it.

   It started with sheets of brass, cut and soldered into 10 cylindrical structures. After cleaning the surface, the artists began etching.

   The trio started working on the Largest Pen in The World in early February and spent nearly 450 working hours and 250,000 rupees (about $5,555 U.S.) getting the pen just right.

   "We worked Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a total of 56 days," Acharya said.

   "Since it is the token of our love and appreciation, none of us complained about undertaking so much effort."

    I thought I should present something unique to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as a token of appreciation for bringing in the Right to Education Act, Acharya said.

     My only wish is that all the children in the country should have the right to primary education. They should have access to pen and pencil, which are their weapons to fight against poverty and illiteracy."

  " My idea of presenting this as a gift to the Prime Minister is that whenever he sees it in his drawing room, it should remind him of those children who are deprived of their right to education, Acharya said.

 
  According to Guinness World Records, Zbigniew Rozanek previously hold the record for the largest pen that is not a ball point. The pen, which earned the mark in 1991, measured 7 feet, 4 inches in diameter with a nib length of 18 inches.
